Small Moves

Tucson, Arizona. One should hardly be surprised that no dramatic moves occurred today, and as The Tucson Citizen reports, the city council voted unanimously to keep Hein on as city manager. Now the Cloth have to make sure whoever takes a look at the books will see things their way.

Thanks to those who commented at the last story and also to those who submitted insightful information at the AZ Star article on Saturday, which certainly made a contribution to me. Thanks also for some of the emails.

X4mr, Small moves is right, and you should expect no different. I don't think the "avalanche" is feasible until there is a lot more blood in the water.

At least (for the aware) we now know that a lot 175 exists and that it reeks. We know names like Hecker and Snell and Myers and the rest. It is definitely different than a year ago, and your anniversary of publishing Something Else is almost here. I don't know what you expected, but I can tell you that you caused more consternation than I think you realize.

I hope you can find time (that dissertation fire must be getting pretty hot-I hear you have good news, why not share?) to keep blogging as you earn your degree.

You are helping. I know it is painfully slow.

This "financial review panel" is a typical political ploy intended to show the citizens that the city council is doing something. They are just stalling.

In their ideal world, everyone would roll over and go back to sleep, satisfied that they had a problem and they solved it. But they do not seem to have an ideal world right now. Too many people have gotten interested.

Economic downturns are generally not kind to politicians and bureaucrats who spent millions of dollars and have nothing much to show.

I wish I could say I'm surprised. In the year 2025, Tucson will be a massive resort surrounded by prisons and all employed will work for one or the other for slave wages.

By that time Arizona will have closed its three universities.

Snell, Hecker, and the rest will have retired by then. Their tombstones can read the same:

Took all I got.
Sure took a lot.
Really knew how to be
in taking care of me

Don't take up poetry as your day job.
