Our Opinion: ‘Choose Life’ license plates

The state will issue “Choose Life” license plates now that the Arizona Life Coalition has won its battle up to the U.S. Supreme Court.

And despite the concern among some state officials, we doubt that the intended anti-abortion message will prove to be too contentious.

Colorado started producing a “Respect Life” license plate after the 1999 Columbine High School massacre of a teacher and 14 students, including the two killers.

Anti-abortion activists pay extra for that license plate without even knowing the message is to honor the Columbine victims, the Gazette in Colorado Springs noted last week.

Despite the new Arizona plates, we suspect folks here will continue to choose, well, as they choose.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
