“To the naive venter that thinks Walmart can afford to pay $10.10/hour since ‘the four Waltons have $33 billion each’: Honey, they aren’t going to use their money to fund the pay increase, they’ll get it from us via higher prices.”
Folks, ya gotta luv ol’ EVT columnist Bill Richardson for being an ever-loyal, ex-Mesa Police Department officer. No criticism of the Mesa PD ever appears in one of his columns. Nope, he saves the criticism for the Chandler, Gilbert, Phoenix police departments, the Arizona Department of Public Safety and his two favorite targets, the Maricopa County and Pinal County sheriff’s offices.
I’m not sure when schools took on the dreaded job of teaching kids about the birds and the bees. But, I am sure they’re darn sorry. Especially those front line managers.
Tom Patterson’s column, “Marriage gap contributes to inequality,” seems to leave out the harsh realities of inequality in America. Tens of millions of Americans struggle to survive economically, while the wealthiest people are doing very well and corporate profits are at an all time high. In fact, wealth and income inequality is greater today than at any time before the great depression. One family now owns more wealth than the bottom 40 percent of Americans. In recent years 95 percent of all new income has gone to the top 1 percent. How can Mr. Patterson say the “key to the whole deal, the most basic explanation of what’s going on is the marriage gap?” Nations will not survive when so few have so much and so many have so little. It has nothing to do with a “marriage gap.”
Editor’s note: Mark Scarp has the week off. This column first appeared in the Tribune Dec. 30, 2012.
Gov. Jan Brewer wants children to know that, yes, there is a Santa Claus.
We have traditionally had two inescapable realities in life: death and taxes. Well, you can add to that list: death, taxes and fees. Fortunately, this past week at least one kind of fee was said to be improperly levied. It’s one charged to you for keeping tabs on your government.
In 2006, I came up against a holiday deadline crunch, so I turned my column over to Turpy, the beloved 8-year-old golden retriever/chow mix who had turned up at our doorstep as a puppy.
Looking for a terrific book to read during your holiday travels? Pick up “How the West Really Lost God.” It’s an insightful look at the link between the decline of the family and Christian religions in the Western World; a social shift that has touched every one of us.
I like prayer. I often pray, at least once a day, likely more. Our family prays each day at dinner, as we have for generations. We’ve discussed prayer over the years, that prayer is at least as powerful for those who pray as for those who are the subjects of prayer, that prayer helps us cope with those difficult times and celebrate the beauty in our lives.
In response to a letter by Mr. Russell, Do you feel censored for dealing in pornography? Good!
MONTE CARLO, Monaco — Just before noon on a brilliant Riviera day, two columns of guards line up smartly in front of the Prince's Palace, gold braid glinting on their full dress uniforms, vivid blue helmets rivaling the azure sky.
John McCain is still seething about the government shutdown and those darn conservative upstarts who caused it. For no good reason, the lives of thousands were interrupted in “real and painful” ways.
Since the Tribune has decided that I must join Facebook to participate in discussions here, I am rather limited to letters. Ms. Turley-Hanson’s censorship campaign does deserve an answer, so here it is.
Long before the 20-second sound bite was even a gleam in CNN founder Ted Turner’s eye, Cliff Hillegass began serving the needs of the impatient, the overwhelmed, the confused, or just in a hurry among us all.
The Huskies were challenged once again on Friday night, but this time they came away with a hard-fought 32-31 victory over Basha. The win stopped a two-game losing streak, and while the team's weaknesses showed up again, the strength of the defense and some important plays from the offense helped Hamilton get back in the victory column. It seems clear Hamilton isn't the same dominant team of years past, but a victory like this could help turn things around.
I know who’s ultimately at fault for the government shutdown. It isn’t the Democrats. It isn’t the Republicans.
I am writing about how Mark Scarp’s column “Dodgers’ postgame dip a lack of manners” (Tribune, Sept. 22) was insightful to me.
“The response column was most definitely more racist than original column. The most offensive part was that those four men claimed to know everything about Linda’s world, while accusing her of being unable to know anything about their world.”
Kids are going to change our world for the better. We can count on it. As per my last column (“Next generations resetting our world,” Tribune, Sept. 15), I reported on the idea that as certain society systems collapse, the next generations will step forward and “reset” our trajectory. (See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)
“In all of my 78 years, whenever two different cultures are involved, the ‘race card’ is played by the culture which is losing the argument, discussion etc… Let’s face it, if you can’t come to a solution To the problem, don’t use the race card, it proves to me you have lost the argument. I Hope Jesse Jackson will use that thought.”
Last week’s column about the Los Angeles Dodgers taking a dip in the Arizona Diamondbacks swimming pool after beating the local team to win their division elicited some backlash from a reader who thought I should be dealing with weightier subjects.
NEW YORK — In the decade Sarah Tetley has worked with college students, she's seen a change in care packages sent from home.
