            When John Kromko ran against Phil Lopes and Olivia Cajero Bedford in the 2008 Democratic primary for the state House of Representatives in Legislative District 27, all he had to do to qualify for the ballot was turn in 400 signatures. On June 4, 2008, Kromko reportedly turned in twice that required number of signatures—some 800—to the Secretary of State's Office.…

        Ignore the sensationalism: Border areas—and Border Patrol agents—are relatively safe
          
            by Randy Serraglio
          
          
          
            On a bright day in late January, hundreds of Tucsonans gathered to wish Gabrielle Giffords well as she left town to rehabilitate from a bullet wound to the head, while hundreds more gathered to mourn the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was gunned down in the line of duty. Within a few days, Shawna Forde went on trial for the crime of orchestrating a double-murder that included the execution of a 9-year-old girl in Arivaca.…

        by Michael Petitti
          
          
          
            Let's assume that Jack White's motivations for resuscitating the careers of female musical iconoclasts like Loretta Lynn and, now, Wanda Jackson are altruistic.
