Tucson gastronomy shows border culture war is a false flag

Tucson has just become a UNESCO "Worldwide City of Gastronomy," which reminds me of how some are up in arms over an Illegal Pete's chain restaurant. Latino culture isn't just embraced here in Tucson. It's marketed. It's not just appropriated. It's sometimes mis-appropriated — and it's everywhere.... Read more»

Photos: Remembering Pearl Harbor in 2015

One of the most solemn days for the U.S. Navy is the anniversary of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor — a day that also has a special connection with the state of Arizona.

Closed minds: Nothing to see here

The media have tried very hard to make the attack on Planned Parenthood in Colorado into a crime committed by a lone wolf..."kept to himself"..."motive was unclear"...move along, nothing to see here. It reminds me of the successful effort to make the Tucson attack on Gabby Giffords, which killed six people, into the mindless work of a madman. Move along, nothing to see here.... Read more»

To thwart terror, start with America’s own craven crazies

We can counter what is still a limited global threat by understanding it and reacting sensibly. Our first priority is boxing off our own cowards and crazies who are ready to abandon fundamental values for the illusion of security. ... Read more»

Ducey and the refugees: History will teach us...

"Solving" the problem of jihadi terror is beyond the conventional military means of America, France, even Russia. Not every place is ready for Jeffersonian democracy — look how it's turned out in Arizona. Ducey doesn't know how to "solve" these things, either. But he's too blinkered by ideology to ask or wonder. It's all about blaming Barack Hussein Obama.... Read more»

Should GOP crow about 9th Circuit tossing Tucson elections?

Tuesday's ruling tossing out Tucson's elections is neither that shocking, nor a game changer. In fact, I'm trying to figure out what Republicans are crowing about because they haven't proven adept at the sort of all-out campaign required to win over skeptical voters. They were great at it, once.... Read more»2
