Why don't we start by getting rid of the politically correct jargon and misdirection. What the heck is a "School Resource Officer?" Someone who helps with homework? A person that provides construction paper and glue for projects? It doesn't exactly strike fear into the hears of the bad guy with a gun... or the kid thinking about bringing a weapon to school! How about calling them armed police officers... or maybe armed security specialists... or perhaps good guy with a gun? Let's get serious by letting people know we are serious. It won't work if we can't at least start by calling it what it is!!! 4 months ago
We can't even get a break on Christmas Eve??? What a country we live in that the Bureaucratic Grinches have to issue a burn ban on Christmas Eve... Forget the fact that there will not be anyone working Christmas Eve to enforce a ban or that the ban doesn't do any good anyway! There are exceptions if you burn for warmth or cooking!!! So grill away my friends and celebrate the new old fashioned Arizona way..... with BBQ and fireworks!!!! Wow! I bet regulatory zealots didn't even think about the PM 2.5 the fireworks will be perpetrating on the public! Now we can all go out in a blaze of glory.

You really are a heel.

From the article: "Proponents said it would boost turnout.
But that wasn't the case in Mesa. Turnout in District 4 was 19.25 percent, compared with 17.46 percent four years ago."
It wasn't the case???? How is an increase in turnout not a boost? It was not much but it wasn't a decrease!
Here's a hint: If you don't want it to be partisan then don't hold it with the Primary Election (which is designed to be partisan) and do it with the General. Aug 27, 2010
