Re: “Tucson Salvage

Great images, thank you. For whatever reason when I posted early this AM, there were no images.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Another good piece.
Although the writing is very good, some photos would certainly enhance the story. This sounds like a very visual man and environment.

One nit I'd like to pick about his statement regarding artists...the reason ..."They want everything free."...which is a dubious generality, is because the public feels similarly for art. They want it free or they want to pay only negotiable prices for the work.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Another very interesting story.
The bus ride from Ciudad Oaxaca to DF however is 6-8 hours. A long time to be on the bus...

Re: “Police Dispatch

The subtext "Maybe He Was Flirting", makes light of a repugnant experience, and shows no respect for the victim. Assault is never a joke.

Re: “Danehy

Allen,
I've stolen nothing, from anyone.
By working stiff, I mean white working stiffs, black working stiffs, any working stiff that is not part of the corporate 1% wealthy that are often paying less income tax dollars than the rest of us. The rest of us whites, and other 99 percenters. Corporations in this country are generally made up of whites. There are exceptions, but show me. It's not about skin color at all. It's about the power to earn a buck, and keep a good percentage of that dollar. Baby president has made it so corporations regardless of their dominant color, are going to pay less in taxes than working stiffs, regardless of their color.
What about the Republican rant over the previous 8 years of the deficit? You don't hear any Republican ranting about the deficit that this tax "plan" will bring. I don't believe the Republicans are the only cocksuckers in the lobby's pockets, the Democrats are equally repugnant.

Re: “Danehy

Yes, Mr Gandy, politics has become viral, a bacteria, a cancer on our culture. Yet there is a need for some type of governance. We must look out for the underdog. Regulations are necessary for clean air and water, and other basic needs like homeland security, and something as basic as garbage pick up. What ever happened to the notion of term limits? Why do we let the lobby's influence dominate? Why do corporations get what they want when a working stiff, works harder if he/she has a job, for less? And his/her taxes are about to increase, while their salaries or hourly wages will not increase.
....A new system has to be investigated. This country is becoming a resort for the 1%, white elite.
I am dreaming, I know, but it's time to clean the slate, and start over so that the other 99% can get theirs.
