Re: “Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame Should Be Renamed the Scottsdale Culinary Hall of Fame

Tucson DOESN'T want to be big. I hear it time & time again from people who love it here. As far as comparing Phoenix restaurants to Tucson restaurants, it's no contest. Striving for excellence deserves recognition. Status quo performance doesn't. If Tucson wanted to compete, they would produce better restaurants. Just because it's been here for 30 years doesn't make it great, or even good. Just old. Like Tucson roads. They'll get you from point A to point B, but not without some serious heartburn and a bad taste in your mouth.

Re: “Serraglio

...and another thing... Having lived out on Redington Rd for over 4 years I witness EVERY weekend, not just one hour, the transgressions of cyclists. You mention, R. Serraglio, your personal observation of vehicles vs. bicycles, stating the motorists were, by far, the ones at fault. Come on over to my side of the world and watch the stupidity compound on any given weekend, especially when you ride two and more. When on roads with bike lanes, I have witnessed plenty of cyclists in the car lane, forcing a vehicle to swerve away from them. You need to lose the high and mighty attitude and judge reasonably what is actually going on with bicyclists. It's a two way street, some with bike lanes, stay in yours, I'll stay in mine.

Re: “Serraglio”

Wow, a bicyclist saying it like it is! Appreciated! I live in a popular area for cyclists, but there are no bike lanes. The general air of MOST of the cyclists is as you mentioned (Jim Harms), death defying, as though Lycra is a shield against a 2000 pound vehicle. It's not just unsafe, it's stupid, and certainly rude and arrogant. Follow the rules of the road and stop riding 3 abreast on a two lane rode with no bike lanes. When you are on Redington Rd. do not stop on your bikes in the middle of the road and expect cars to wait while you eat your power bars (tossing the wrapper in the road) and adjust your Lycrawear. Rude and arrogant. I wish one of you cyclists would explain the mentality behind this behavior because it just boggles my mind.
