Re: “Tucson Salvage

Only Brian Smith would think to write about a working class actor. Apart from a handful of household names, thats exactly what the majority of actors are.

I love the positive attitude of Mr Folk. Beaten by cops, overcoming institutional racism and still filled with gratitude. He is an exemplary human and I am better for knowing his story.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I love how unexpectedly upbeat this story is. By going back to basics, this family has found true love and happiness, regardless of traditional markers of success or social status. Thank you again, Mr. Smith for bringing another oft-overlooked real people story to life. You set a good example for us all. The magic is there for us to find if we can open our hearts and clear our minds of judgement.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

This week's Salvage is especially lyric and beautiful. I love the author's honesty about his past and the humbleness and open-heartedness he brings to the homeless persons in his present. Inspiring.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

While I understand the grief and with it anger and sadness over Jacobs death, this article and its author do not seem to be the problem. When I read this column, I see a very complex and troubled person in Andrew Perez. I also see the trail of grief that he has caused Jacobs family and his own family quite clearly. This story is not a hard news article, merely a column on one mans life and struggles.

My heart goes out to Jacob and Andrews moms for the unspeakable loss of their sons. And I thank the author, Brian Smith, and the Tucson Weekly for bringing this challenging story to light.

I love the way that Rays spirit has remained intact, despite all the hardship.
Thank you for helping his incredible story reach our ears, Brian Smith. Your column inspires empathy and therefore compassion in your readership.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I like the way you captured and held our attention by focusing on the childlike wonder that places like this inspire. Took me back to my own Arizona childhood. Thank you. Another great piece.
