" High-ranking county official sues Pima County over bike accident"

The Jamar Younger/AZ Daily Star/Lee Enterprises headline contains just about every hot button manipulative phrase one can think of. All to excite Facebook commenters and build mindless and uninformed traffic to the web site. They fall for it.


What is sad for the public with this financially desperate "newspaper" is that feels no obligation or duty to explain things on this issue and so many others. Given that it is essentially financially dying, why would it? The money-grubbing cynicism is amazing; the worst Red Star has seen even though there has always been the tension between manipulating and informing the public.

Good job Jamar! You rock, bro! (but you don't work for a newspaper, you work for an ad agency, fyi)

Red Star is pleased that a local artist was enlisted rather than generic gtm racks. Nice touch!

The mobile version works on a Windows desktop and on a Windows laptop (so you don't absolutely have to have Silverlight).  On an android tablet, it is tedious like everything else with a tablet.

Tim Steller's not-unwelcome piece "Steller: In Tucson, lives of walkers, cyclists are cheap" in yesterday's ADS elicited in an interesting comment:


"Out of curiosity, how does our accident rate compare to other cities in the US?"


To which the response, "Timothy Steller · Top Commenter · Columnist at Arizona Daily Star
Good question, Richard. I'll look for that."


It's understandable, in a way.

Despite the best efforts of the neo-secessionists infecting our Congress, NHTSA's web site is still up, though research, that is to say any attempt to comprehend may be slowed down a bit.

Interesting and innovative ideas above that are absolutely *not* part of UA's DINO council member's, Steve Kozachick, agenda. An agenda that amounts to raising fares and nothing else. Whatever party he belongs to, ignorant people support him.
