A good thing: There will be a spring training game at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium on March 7 to benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Fund.


Not so good: The game features the former tenants of that park, the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Chicago White Sox, a fact that many local baseball fans might be a little bitter about.…

2011-02-18 Tucson Wildly Unprepared for Zombie Apocalypse (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2011/02/17/tucson-wildly-unprepared-for-zombie-apocalypse

        
        


New York City has a plan for the inevitable day when zombies walk the streets of their city, hungry for human flesh...does Tucson?


Should New York City face a "very grim" situation, the government has the right to "establish curfews, quarantine wide areas, close businesses, restrict public assemblies and, under certain circumstances, suspend local ordinances," the New York Times explains in a feature this morning about the legal rulebook that governs potentially apocalyptic times.

http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2011/02/17/vegan-in-tucson-a-preliminary-note

        
        

Veg•an (vee-guhn): A vegan is someone who doesn’t eat animal products: meat, fish, milk products, eggs, or honey. Many vegans also avoid fur, leather, and wool as these products generally result in the confinement, abuse, or slaughter of animals.


True that, my friends.…
