Re: “UA, ASU Libertarian Schools Are Growing Fat On Money From the Government They Despise (It's Much Worse Than I Thought)

A casual glance at the other line items in that budget makes it clear that the legislature has a bloody ax to grind and is ideologically motivated. Every other item there is associated with the nature of the University as a land-grant charter institution - as it has basically been since the beginning. Those items were grandfathered into funding at the legislative level as core features of the land-grant nature of the institution. Academic departmental level funding is and always has been decided by the Regents. The legislature has no business with its paws on academics. This appears to be beyond the comprehension of the cheerleading Libertarians here leaping passionately to the defense of this travesty. Of course, they never would have approved of setting up a land grant university system in the first place.

Re: “High Rise on the Horizon

Local businesses only in the retail space is, "not in the contract" signed by the developer. Translation: Corporate chains coming to 4th Ave. Your visionary city council at work. They really don't seem to get how rare and unusual The Avenue is.

Re: “A Note To the 'Keep Tucson Shitty' Crowd: You're the Problem

Downtown 'development' is lopsided. I'm happy to see movement but I wonder if we are seeing the best Tucson could have done. The $$ invested (especially in the student housing projects) are not local and the profits from those developments will leave town (except for the tax base). Where was the local investment? Good for the economy you know. Some cities understand this sort of thing better it seems. There are too few non-service jobs. The plan relies too heavily on students and therefore expects to profit from student debt. I hope downtown gets to a phase of broader more general economic development where commerce and residential development outweigh the over reliance on restaurants and student housing. Another comment here alluded to the lack of a proper festival grounds / public square. That is a feature of great cities everywhere and it will likely not happen here now that the options have been dealt out....and of course the Arena and Music hall languish when cities around us have put in world class facilities. Well, they can fill the void in the supply of decadent decay left by The Grill and then some.

Re: “A Utah Company Fired Two Employees Because They Supported Obama

Loud chorus here and it's just a lot of trodding on sour grapes. Well, News flash: The VOTE in the election was louder than you. The PEOPLE made a free (from extortion) choice. I am disgusted that there are people who would approve of political extortion using voters jobs. BTW, There would be the same caterwauling and sour grapes from the same crowd if the shoe were on the other foot and THEY were getting fired for voting the opposite party to the boss's ....only they would be going on about how unfair THAT is - and in that case they would be right.

Re: “One More Election Stunner: Tucson Voters Pass Road Bond

Good intentions don't pave roads and nobody seems to realize that the road that takes a civilization to hell is a poorly paved one. (Actually, it looks like just enough people did realize) Looking forward to my new suspension lasting 50k further than before.
