Pima Path Hazard at McDonald Drive

This is another hazard to pedestrians and especially cyclists. I first brought this to the city’s attention several years ago. Northbound on Pima Path where it transitions from 87th Terrace to the concrete leading to McDonald Drive, the transition ramp is considerably more narrow than might be inferred by the fog line/edge marking. The available […]

Solange is a Liar

In addition to deluding herself into visions of being Scottsdale’s Henry Kissinger, running shuttle diplomacy between developers and the citizens for whom she’s supposed to be advocating, city council member Solange Whitehead is a liar. I don’t use that term lightly, but she either knows or damned well ought to know that the information she’s […]

Ignorant Donkeys

The deluded donkeys of the LD23 Democrats have published a screed in support of the new-and-diluted Scottsdale General Plan 2035. I’ve reproduced it below for reference.

I memorialized the thread here, in case the censors at the Independent decide to nuke it. Kush: Actually the Biden administration is saying […]

Arizona National Guard’s Murderous Friend

It has been some time since I wrote about the scandal-plagued Arizona National Guard. But I haven’t forgotten. And the announcement earlier this year that former AZNG adjutant general Michael McGuire is running for US Senate was a reminder. A friend recently sent me a news item from a couple of years ago and asked […]

How Bad Must It Be? General Plan Update Election

https://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/elections To paraphrase former Scottsdale city councilman Bob Littlefield: How bad does Scottsdale’s General Plan update have to be, to have garnered so little support from the council majority, the Chamber of Commerce, and the movers-and-shakers who think nothing of dropping $100 to get their supporting arguments published in the election pamphlet? I dutifully handed […]
