Since I just retired from Valley Metro and as one of those drivers who drove into Sycamore STN. hundreds of times, the biggest problem that I've seen there is the hundreds of passengers who continuously ignore the lights.
As a professional driver I can tell you I was always was aware of passengers and pedestrians, I never had a chargeable accident in my whole driving career. One of the first rules of driving a large vehicle is be aware of your space and what is around you.
As pedestrians you have an obligation to your own safety also,like go on green, look up and stay out the way of 40-65 ft busses, in other words take personal responsibility for your own safety instead of blaming others.12 hours ago
Until Arizona passes legislation to retest elderly drivers, which needs to include a behind wheel test, then we are all in danger.
This nonsense kind of akin to allowing anybody with the right amount of cash to buy handguns here without background checks. Victims be da &/-+(+(/!ed.12 hours ago
So, is Stamper Brown related to Linda Turley Hanson, a sisterhood of hate, bigotry, and intolerance. 1 week ago
Next to Leon you are the most insufferable, ridiculous, person that this the Tribune allows to infect these forums with your bigoted nonsense.
Four days before Christmas, this year, my son lost his mother to cancer, the following month I lost my mother, to insinuate and stereotype my son and myself as flawed and failed, because you thank we flaunt women's magazines on our coffee tables and expect the most important loves ones in our lives to imitate some media born fantasy world, only exposes to me your own self loathing.
Your narrow vision of the world from your brainwashed right winged extremist black soul not only insults the memory of my wife and my own mother to, but the reason for this wonderful American holiday.
I never in the 30 wonderful years the I spent with my wife went astray, needed coffee table porn, or expected her to become anything other then the strong, totally independent, and totally devoted mother and wife that she was, her giving spirit transformed our lives beyond any level of love and respect that you in your cloisterd dark place could ever accomplish.
Maybe what you need to go is look under you husbands side of the bed, because what your so-called column reveals is more about your own miserable existence than that of the rest of us.
Oh, by the way, to really burst you bubble, my wife, the motherof my extremely successful son, are diehard patriotic liberals. I am sorry for your misery.2 weeks ago
Now that the NRA has now become the National Republican Army, itching for civil war, the tea party crackpots probably can't wait for their call to arms.
Who are they going to murder first, the democrats, their neighbors. the politicians.
If the inability of the people to achieve even a modicum of civil discourse or comprise continues, then this nation is doomed to become another footnote in s long line of failed countries and nations, irrelevant and forgotten. 2 weeks ago
Now that this media farce is over, it seems to me that the only sane people in this whole case were the jurors themselves.
The most disgusting aspect of the verdict, however, was the wild celebration by the low educated mob in the street in front of the superior court. All these morons needed were white hoods, a rope, and a hanging tree.
This like all homicide trials are not fun festivals. I think these people were just one more low level embarrassment to our state and our justice system.2 weeks ago
When you have a tribal oligarchy that has a monopoly over gaming in AZ it, has it has in my opinion tightened the gaming machines so much the average social gambler, like myself, has lost interest in going to the casinos.
I just returned from a trip to Ohio where they now have state run Racinos free from tribal control but instead nof only serve the racing industry but the tax payers of the state.
Perhaps, if Arizona allowed legalized gambling throughout the state free from tribal control, competition would provide the free choice to all of it's citizens to seek their own choice of entertainment, but also a better source of revenue for the state

After watching the news from Houston today it is more than obvious that the most dangerous domestic terrorist group in America is the NRA.3 weeks ago
I agree with Rich you are exactly what is wrong with this me mentality.
I re-read this article 3 times and not once did you mention "family".
I just retired in March my beautiful wife of 30 years passes away four days before Christmas.
I am not wealthy by your standards, I worked for the "Man" my entire life, not once on the public dole.
I can guarantee you. Mr. Ryan, that I never compromised my principals or family to please the boss.
Simply because my family was my career and as I look back they are my proudest achievement, not money, not pride, and not sucking up to people like you and that makes me wealthier than you and your kind will ever be.4 weeks ago
Hey Mike, when Leon lets you out of the bunker to take a walk, don't forget to take the tin foil off your head first, then maybe the police will leave you alone.4 weeks ago
