Re: “Dorm Days: UA Students Move In This Week

Funny thing - I'm seeing a LOT of "for rent" signs in West University and Rincon Heights - far more than I ever remember seeing in the past. Are the landlords in this area seeing fallout from the huge high-rise student complexes that are popping up? Just curious.

Re: “From Wastewater to Cold Beer

It is oft said that 'all water is recycled,' meaning (and this is true) that every time we take a swig of 'crystal clear pure mountain water' from our water bottle, that water has passed through a dinosaur and several hundred organisms since.

That being said, the Pure Water Brew Challenge was genius. For those Arizonans not yet on board with the idea of drinking recycled water, this was a way to educate and enlighten them. I've had the pilsner, and it's really great. Congratulations to Dragoon, and also to the third place winner, Tucson's own Crooked Tooth Brewery.

Re: “Caviar Dreams

To Rita: the SW corner of 6th Avenue and Broadway.

To SonoranWinds - really? Was that necessary? Grow up.

Re: “Caviar Dreams

Have visited MiAn three times since the opening and all experiences were VERY positive. I am a BIG fan of Senae Thai and I wasn't all that excited about another Asian restaurant coming in downtown. But MiAn is great - from the ambiance (relaxed but classy) to the knowledgeable wait staff, to the owner (or manager) always stopping by the table to make sure we were happy. The care that they take in their product shows. Definitely worth a try, and I wish them the best of luck.

Re: “The Best Things I Ate in 2015

Hooray for breakfast toast! And salmon eggs benedict (also from 5 points, but I know that you could only pick one).

Re: “Monsanto Mania

Mixed feelings here. As an agricultural scientist, I know well our current and future struggles to feed a hungry world. I will get up on a soapbox and praise the benefits of GMOs.

That being said, Monsanto is a monster. At a scientific meeting some years ago, I attended a presentation by a fellow scientist who had done some research on the stated efficacy of a Monsanto-produced herbicide. A representative of this company stood up and berated her until she cried. Yes, cried. Finally, the moderator kicked the asshole out of the room but I saw what happens to people who try and cross them - and what I saw was assuredly only a small, nasty, unprofessional example of them wielding their power.

Monsanto does good work. But they definitely have a public relations problem. They really need to put their efforts there.
