President Bush brought his 60-city, 60-day campaign to change Social Security yesterday to the 17th stop, the Tucson Convention Center.

Approximately 1,500 people packed TCC to attend the private, invitation-only town hall discussion on Social Security.

Moderating drinking laws will moderate young drinkers

At some point during their journeys back from Mexico, countless spring breakers likely raised a decades-old complaint among young college students: The drinking age in the United States is, well, wack. Not only does a national drinking age of 21 make criminals out of millions of young people, but it promotes dangerous traditions and encourages immoderate drinking habits that could have lifelong ramifications.

As an alternative, locals, young and old, are getting together to smoke the legal way, with the help of the hookah.

The pastime has become even more popular in Tucson since Roger Smiley and his wife Sarah opened Smiley's Ultimate Hookah Lounge and Coffee last year. [Read article]
