Crowd actions against UCLA showed a total lack of class'

I attended the UA basketball game on Feb. 13 against UCLA. The game was unbelievable, the fans' energy was at a season's high. It was one of the most complete performances by the UA b-ball team I've seen since the season opener against Western Kentucky. With all these highs there was one sobering moment in the game. In the second half with about 10 minutes left, the crowd started to chant "Fi-re La-vin." I have no problem with hounding the other team if it is a close game, but this was a 30-point blowout. This is the first time in my short career here at the U that I was disappointed and ashamed that I attended UA. I thought that this displayed a total lack of class by the Arizona fans. I'm not against cheering for UA, and not against heckling the other team, but stooping as low as the fans did was unacceptable.

photo Don't let the legislature take your voting rights

So much for breathing easily the Arizona state Legislature is back to work. Forget their rejection of Gov. Napolitano's sensible budget, and their recommendation for even more cuts to the state's universities, which would run deep into the bone; now they're trying to take away your voting rights, one bill at a time.

The initiative process that allowed Arizona voters to approve tobacco taxes, save Indian gaming, ban cockfighting, create the Arizona Clean Elections Commission, use lottery money to preserve the environment, and create the Healthy Arizona plan to expand health care coverage to thousands of Arizonans, is under attack.
