Arizona Star Praises Cloth God

Tucson, Arizona. Today's Star has an opinion piece praising Dr. Richard Florida's inane economic development speech on Thursday to 500 suits. Only 500?

Last year had almost a thousand.

The reader can certainly read the article, so I won't say much other than state the already stated view that this "consultant" is pure snake selling empty rhetoric to clueless nimrods who know nothing at all. Note the article could not get a number for the dollars TREO forked over to pay the guy to do his pep rally. He typically charges, as the article points out, at least $25 grand per chat.

The math skills course for a YEAR was less than $20 grand. I was so naive in thinking they actually wanted worker skills and wages improved. I don't think the "gay male index" came up last Thursday, but Dr. Cloth has created another one, the "brain drain" index, and Tucson's is very high.

Imagine that. The guy is actually right, and of whatever value, my brain is one of the ones they lost. I've gone cosmopolitan. I have nothing to do with local economic development. When I graduate, I leave.

I poured my heart out to help the local workforce, and Roach, Major, and Mouch shot me through the heart. I'm not going to do a thing, but they drew from an account, especially Roach. They knowingly and willfully entered into contracts with board members behind the back of the Chair of the Board, saying nothing. Those in the contract tried to fire the Executive Director against the will of the Board Chair.

Sloppy, disgusting behavior. Don't believe me? Click on the Something Else link to the left. It's all there.

Robert DeNiro in Angel Heart captures it so well, "I don't like messy accounts."

Every dog has its day.

You are getting better, but you still retain this victim nonsense that is not becoming. You spoke growth in 1993 and the universe responded.

Were it not for BHP shutting the mine down, you would still be there. You would still be the guy amazed at the notion of being in the same room with the Mayor. You would never have run a company, reported to a board, or gone for a Phd. You would never have met your favorite Congresswoman, have remained out of touch with distinctions of community and politics, and probably not started blogging.

You might still be married to what's her name, and you wouldn't have written Something Else, which has promise especially after you put that "Dr" in front of your name and write it from a strong perspective.

In other words,

kwitcherbitchin and get back to the econometrics.

I am thinking of writing a poem based on "Waiting for Godot."

I will call it, "Waiting for Liza."

I think these rants are more a form of therapy than anything else. Just my 2 cents.

I think Dustin's right, but I get Navigator's remark about one thing.

x4mr, you give those people more energy than they deserve. They are self-serving morons that fake their way and lie.

Isn't it obvious? They shit on you and pay this fraud fifty thousand dollars to talk for sixty minutes about how Tucson needs:


Take pride in having helped all of those you helped. You speak the truth and it shows. They don't, and it shows.

Fergitaboudam! Snell will resign in awhile and go pretend to help some other stupid town.

Word on the street is that, handcuffs removed, Somers is swinging full tilt to keep the place alive. Roughton and those Canyon people can pound salt.

If you're smart, you've stayed away, but I wonder how long it will take for the board to flip the profit switch if the place becomes viable.

If they flip that switch, Somers will resign (whether she wants to or not).

Sorry I can't say who I am, but I project a SAIAT closure end of calendar year, maybe even sooner.
