There's a lot to unpack in the budget that's headed for Gov. Jan Brewer's desk, but we'll start with reaction from Senate Democrats:


Legislative Republicans shoved a budget through the Senate and House that kills jobs, massively cuts education and kicks hundreds of thousands of people off of health care. Unfortunately, the attack on middle class Arizonans in this budget is very real.…

Barbara Mandrell would be proud to know her eyeball ended on the edge of a dragon collage. Jack Benny would be equally tickled to see that his whole head made it onto the dragon’s face.…

2011-04-02 RIP, Mel McDaniel (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2011/04/01/rip-mel-mcdaniel

Cornershop have always played around with Bollywood influences in their music, but for the new album, they went after that aesthetic more fully, with a New Delhi born housewife turned Bollywood singer Bubbly Kaur taking over vocals for the group.
