In Kathleen Murphy’s Inbox letter on Nov. 30, she’s correct that many stupid voters don’t do, or are too lazy to do, research. They get their info from “conservative TV or radio”? What about ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, HLN, MSNBC or “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report”? Are they all conservative? I don’t think so.
The letter from Mr. Murphy about stupid Americans was correct to an extent. Really stupid Americans are too dumb to vote. Our biggest problem is those who are willfully ignorant and too lazy to research anything. They get their information from conservative TV or radio, or simply vote the same way they have always voted — by party. That is why we had an election in which the Republicans won seats in Congress, but “liberal issues” such as higher minimum wage, background checks, reproductive rights and legalization of marijuana, among others, did pass. So it seems that American voters know what they want but don’t know who will give it to them.

PHOENIX (AP) — Several major education groups say they're interesting in learning more about Diane Douglas' positions on education issues, including more about her views regarding the new school standards known as Common Core.
Douglas is a Republican who was elected state superintendent of public instruction, defeating Democrat David Garcia in last week's general election.
Garcia conceded Monday, the same day that Douglas issued a statement saying her victory is a mandate to end Common Core.
Douglas is former Peoria school board member who ran a low-key campaign in which she largely avoided public events in favor of tea-party gatherings and interviews on conservative talk radio shows.
Arizona School Boards Association President Tim Ogle said his group is going to try to arrange a meeting with Douglas. "I think the purpose of a conversation like that is to become familiar with her beliefs because we're really not very familiar and to give her the opportunity to converse with us about her hopes and fears for the Department of Education," Ogle said.
As superintendent, Douglas will oversee the state Department of Education and be a member of the state Board of Education. That board, along with the Arizona Legislature, sets education policy for the state's K-12 public school system. It adopted Common Core in 2010.
Some Arizona lawmakers tried unsuccessfully to pass legislation to either repeal the standards or change them during the last legislative session.
Ogle said his group wants to know whether Douglas has an alternative to Common Core. "If Mrs. Douglas has another strategy, then we're anxious to know what it is," he said.
Andrew Morrill, president of the Arizona Education Association, said educators didn't learn much about Douglas during the campaign aside from her opposition to Common Core.
"She was very clear on that issue, and yet there are questions even about her thoughts on our academic standards," the union president said. "I think a lot of folks are waiting to hear the answer. There are a million public-school students, and they are creating the urgency."
Arizona's next Superintendent of Public Instruction says her victory is a mandate to end new school standards known as Common Core.

PHOENIX -- Close to one out of every seven votes cast this year will come from Hispanics, according to a non-partisan organization promoting Latino turnout.
Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album alternative rock band Linkin Park took time out of their busy schedule between tour stops in Brazil and Switzerland to make a stopover in Phoenix on Oct. 25 to benefit something very close to lead singer Chester Bennington’s heart: kids in need from his hometown.
Close to one out of every seven votes cast this year will come from Hispanics, according to a non-partisan organization promoting Latino turnout. And group members predict that large percentage of them will vote for Democrats — but not necessarily because of what those candidates offer, but how Republicans are campaigning.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Students at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University are working on a special report on heroin and opioid use.
The 30-minute, commercial-free investigative report will be broadcast simultaneously on TV stations and radio outlets across Arizona.
Cronkite officials say the event will include a 100-phone center for viewers seeking counseling or more information on heroin and opioid addiction.
Teams of advanced journalism students at the Cronkite School also will produce packages of digital stories and data analysis available on the Web, an accompanying mobile tablet app, and Spanish-language and radio versions of the documentary.
The statewide simulcast of the report is scheduled to air Jan. 13 on the 32 TV stations in Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma and most of the state's radio stations.
PHOENIX (AP) — The manhunt for suspects who shot and wounded an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer during a traffic stop and got into a gunbattle with responding officers has led to the arrest of a woman who authorities say was hurt in the shootout.
Valeria S. Jaime, 24, was treated for a gunshot wound before she was booked into jail early Friday, said Officer James Holmes, a Phoenix police spokesman.
She was arrested on suspicion of hindering prosecution after being interviewed by investigators looking into the early Wednesday shooting in Phoenix, police and Maricopa County sheriff's spokesmen said.
A probable-cause statement released after Jaime's initial court appearance Friday said police believe her boyfriend was the shooter and she wouldn't provide details of what happened.
"Detectives determined this suspect's actions following the shooting of the DPS officer and her statements at interview were a furtive effort to mislead detectives and hinder the investigation," Holmes said.
Jaime was being released on her own recognizance with supervision restrictions and doesn't have a lawyer yet.
A second woman detained Thursday for questioning was released. But police said they also wanted to speak with three other persons of interest — two men and a woman — about the incident.
The shooting occurred after the officer pulled over a Mercury Sable with dark window tint at about 3 a.m. Wednesday near an Interstate 17 frontage road. At some point during the stop, an occupant in the car opened fire on the officer and shot him in the face.
The officer had radioed for backup, and the arriving officers engaged in a shootout with people in the car before they fled. The DPS has not identified the wounded officer, but said he's 44 years old and married and a six-year department veteran.
An active search for the other suspects is under way.
