Does this action promote quality education…?

Perspective for your consideration …

May I inquire – Governor Napolitano in as much as you profess you are the “education” champion how you balance increasing college tuition while increasing our university president’s salaries… as reported in the 17 November 08 – Arizona Republic…?

It appears that every aspect of our publicly funded schools from K-12 through college are underfunded, understaffed respecting teachers, but overstaffed respecting administrators, why…?

Our state as you are aware appears to be facing another rather serious funding situation when the new legislature is convened in January.

If you choose to give us full disclosure on all aspects of our state’s economy and how you – Governor – are choosing to resolve it, you might be surprised at the level of support you might find. That support I suggest hinges on the degree to which “we” – that’s the voters and taxpayers – are provided full open disclosure and dialog.

The ball is in your court. For someone who championed President-elect Obama early on, you might consider evoking the same sense of – change – he envisions and see how you might transform Arizona…?

My best to you, Governor, in these most difficult and trying times

NOTE … since I first penned this our Governor has been requested by President-Elect Obama to become our Secretary of Homeland Security. Though I differ with our Governor on a number of points and issues I trust she will permit me to extend to her my best wishes should she choose to accept his offer. Arizona will I feel be diminished, but our nation will be far better served with Janet Napolitano as head of Homeland Security.

And let me be even a bit bolder, I am most willing to present and discuss any water issue before any audience in Arizona where open full disclosure and two way dialog is permitted.

city of phoenix bans horse tripping now that takes guts…?

Perspective for your consideration …

OK … our ever alert Phoenix City Council under the leadership of that financial genius Mayor Gordon, who so wisely gifted more than 100 million of your tax dollars to selected business interests, sees the wisdom in actively promoting and supporting “rage in the cage fighting” but draws the line at horse tripping in rodeos. You got to hand it to these folks they show real guts, don’t they…?

Legally I can promote cage fighting because that generates $$ for our economy and is sanctioned by our State Legislators and Governor, but horse tripping is illegal. Personally I can not support either one however explain it to me that our city cares more about the welfare of horses than it does about the welfare of man…?
