Deaths part of anti-Syria plot?

Logically, it makes no sense for the Syrians to commit acts that were certain to bring world condemnation down on them.

Could it be that the assassinations in Lebanon were committed by others looking for a pretext to go after Syria with a financial blockade and/or military intervention? History is replete with just such actions.


Surprise in document

Upon closer examination of our Declaration of Independence, using a strong magnifying glass, I noticed words not often quoted. I thought it incumbent upon you to so inform your readers of the true text, quoted in part as follows:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, the pursuit of Happiness, free medical care, and free room and board if they are dislodged from their own abodes by any means . . . ”



Playing dumb about immigration

By now, everybody by the border knows that one must not transport illegal immigrants because it’s against the law. That’s called “human smuggling.”

Anybody who comes across injured or sick illegal immigrants is to contact the Border Patrol to get aid.

The end does not justify the means, and that’s what bleeding hearts need to learn. Bringing illegal immigrants into our cities on the pretext that they need medical attention no longer cuts it.

By the way, I’m Hispanic and I think illegal immigration is detrimental to our country.

Anybody aiding and abetting, hiring and exploiting illegal immigrants is punishable by law.

No more playing dumb about it!

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
