There's nothing worth photographing yet, but at least they are not dead.
The Cavs are out of the playoffs and TBG is adrift. He should have been watching LeBron this afternoon instead of napping through the Celtics/Orlando game. For a while, he was very proud to be from Cleveland.....
I was part of a Facebook quest to have a million people express their displeasure with SB1070, Arizona's ill-conceived attempt to secure our border with Mexico. The notifications were less strident than most of their ilk, and infrequent enough to be ignored easily. Then they decided to boycott my state and I figured out how to un-join them.
It's true that without tourists my favorite spots will be quieter, but without tourism Arizona's economy will just shrivel up and die. I just can't be a part of that. Come to Tucson. Our police chief says his minions are overworked and underpaid as it is without doing the job the Feds have assigned to the Border Patrol and ICE. We're a multi-ethnic community which generally gets along quite well. The fact that we are 65 miles from the border means that our shopping centers are filled with Sonoran license plates. This bill is a mis-guided attempt to protect the Arizonans who ranch and farm and live and hike and fish and birdwatch along the beautiful lands along the border. They are over-run with vandals and vagrants and varmints of the 2-legged kind, and these intruders are carrying weapons and drugs as often as they are carrying dreams of a better life.
SB1070 is just a ham-fisted way of attacking the problem. To those of you who have commented that this would be a wake-up call to Washington, I'm still waiting.....
