READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP: Ya gotta hand it to car dealer Bob Beaudry--not many citizen activists will spend six figures to reverse their own mandates. But that's exactly what Beaudry did, returning the CAP water issue to the ballot for the third time in six years, in hopes of forcing Tucson Water to begin recharge in waterways like the Rillito and Santa Cruz. Voters wearied of Beaudry, quite possibly because of his increasingly bizarre behavior, and rejected the initiative by more than 60 percent. The end result: By this time next year, many of us will be gulping a cocktail of CAP and ground water. Radio Bob, meanwhile, has gone on to a new career as a blithering idiot each and every afternoon on KTKT radio. We imagine the guys running the car company are grateful for anything that gets him out of the office.
