Re: “Preservation Activists Fault the Arizona Inn

The point is that no one even talked, cared or worried about this property, or even knew it was there until it was about to be sold. Now it is so "important" to save by the same people who didn't know or care it existed! If Tucson is "cowboys, ranchers,outlaws and the rodeo then why weren't these cowboys, ranchers, and rodeo outlaws visiting and cherishing this "important shrine" to their beginnings? The Greenway family and it's heirs have done more to save history than anyone I know. This is their property, and I trust the families decision to do what they want with it. Perhaps all of you cowboys and rodeo fans should start to investigate other properties which you deem important to rodeo history if you have even bothered to research the topic. Or you could wait until The Tucson Weekly tells you what to save. But by then it would be too late. I miss the rodeo parade when it was downtown!!! Now it is delegated to the south side. Isn't it about time we stopped making animals perform for us anyway? Keeping them in captivity is one thing, but making them be part of a show that glorifies man's dominance over animals is a bit much in this day and age, wouldn't you say?
