Re: “Avatar

Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.

This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.

Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.

Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!

Re: “So, What Do People Think About Teachers?

Try teaching for a month, a year, a few more; it is not easy at all. It is hard work that requires alertness, intelligence, rules of conduct, policies/procedures, common sense and true compassion for the problems of others who are totally unrelated to you and yours. And, then there can always be the unexpected crisis that can erupt any hour of any day.

There are people who criticize and try to starve the system as a ploitical scheme, but teachers do heavy lifting everyday despite critics who have no clue what strength of character it requires.

Re: “Big Bucks Conservative Donors Beyond the Koch Brothers

There will always be people of wealth and influence who will attract the support of people who have very little wealth and precious little influence. And, those supporters are never going to be rich themselves because of that support.

Keep ranting about liberals, continue voting against your own interests, and by all means keep kissing wealthy union busters' behinds, and you too will be guaranteed to stay poor, ignorant and foolish.

Re: “Governor, You're No Don Quixote.

What a sad. dark, small minded isolated little country you live in, Wayne Olsen - believing in nothing good in the future.

You sound sad and very depressed.

Re: “Tucsonans Travel to D.C. To Argue Against the Republican Tax Bill

Real tax reform would be a good thing. The last time was 1986, and rigorous review, bipartisan input, and months of open hearings were painstakingly applied before any vote took place. This "reform" was shoddy and blindly accepted without any of that. The final printed version before the vote was a disgraceful mess of last minute cross outs, hand written edits and porky additions. I hope that all those citizens and politicians who supported this messy legislation will honestly appraise its future effectiveness. Give it 5 years to sink in. At least these 8 folks felt some conscience and tried to give warning. But in the end, "Neither Flake nor McCain were available to meet with the group," and we now know something strange got done. Never again can we trust the "deficit hawks" in Washington, DC.

Re: “Why Teachers Are Leaving (And New Teachers Aren't Replacing Them)

I am waiting for the hate TUSD (including Huppenthal) trolls to arrive, so readily with DS columns, and start ridiculing. Teaching is not an easy job and it continues to get harder on many levels, some which are never seen by the public. Most teachers deserve better because they work hard (some do construction in the summer), they must tolerate disrespect from know-it-alls who know little about the day-to-day pressures, and they work in a state close to number 50 in every area of support for their work. All this happens after they must go though years of preparatory studies, at least for now.

Re: “It's 'Tucson Unified' Now

At the bottom of all 50 states, our schools continue to sit, a fact always worth noting: near the very bottom of all 50 in every category. We stay there because of hard core bickering by politicians, charter school proponents and citizen grouches who never go near schools and resent every cent spent on someone else's kids. Voting in the affirmative doesn't seem to matter. The super majority of politicians in Phoenix has proven they will nullify election results they don't like. People actually can be public school superintendents and despise the idea of public education. Not what the founders envisioned.
