Clearly, I've chosen a side on the whole artist boycott of Arizona, but yet, there's enough money and energy behind the Sound Strike to keep going, even as artists seem to be losing enthusiasm for the endeavor. The Sound Strike certainly have the right to continue campaigning to save Arizona by killing culture here, but it would be nice if other organizations gave someone involved in music in Arizona (Curtis McCrary?…

2011-03-16 Scott Bundgaard Just a Regular Senator Again (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2011/03/15/2607017-scott-bundgaard-just-a-regular-senator-again

        
        
        

From the Phoenix New Times:


Senate sources confirm to New Times that Republicans voted to remove Bundgaard from his leadership spot over last month's scuffle with the senator's now-ex-gal-pal, Aubry Ballard, on the side of a Phoenix freeway.


Last week, the Senate Republican caucus agreed to give Bundgaard a week to present them with "new evidence" supporting his version of what happened during the scuffle, which he claims included Ballard pulling out a gun before he removed her from his car.…

2011-03-16 Should Arizona Add State Legislative Districts? (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2011/03/15/should-arizona-add-state-legislative-districts

        
        
        

An interesting idea from AZ Blue Meanie (that just seems ridiculous to type out) today: add representatives to the Arizona legislature. While finding people willing to work for the absurdly low pay that gig offers is already a challenge with our existing number of positions to fill, but considering we've had the same number of districts since 1966, when the state's population was in the neighborhood of one million people, actual representation might be a bit of an issue now that there are around 6.4 million Arizonans:

2011-03-16 Thanks for Nothing, WWE (weekly)

Last year, I went to Wrestlemania when it was held in Glendale at the University of Phoenix stadium, and while there were some fun matches, it was a little lacking in big time star power and surprises. It was hardly the big time sports entertainment event I expected.…

2011-03-16 The Best/Strangest Comment of the Week (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2011/03/15/the-beststrangest-comment-of-the-week

        
        
        

We have a "Comment of the Week" feature in the print issue every week, but sometimes space limitations rule out some of the longer, more thought out reader missives which still deserve a special spotlight. This week, Frederick Rhodes (commenting on yesterday's post "Gov. Brewer to Attend Dinner Honoring the "Faith Based" President”), you have the floor:


Too bad Bush was not knowledgable about his faith in Jesus Christ.…

2011-03-16 Totally Hateful Christian on YouTube Just a Weird Prank (weekly)

Yesterday, the internet was abuzz over a video from a frequent YouTube poster who claimed that her Lenten prayers might have been responsible for the earthquake in Japan, which was really just a wake-up call for a country that hasn't fully embraced Jesus. The question was whether the poster was for real.…

Seemingly worth noting: in the print edition, this article was placed above an obituary for LSD pioneer Owsley Stanley.


On the patio of a downtown bar here last Wednesday night, a handful of people gathered over pitchers of beer to plot the creation of America's 51st state.…
