The story: Tucson makes the list of 21 “Best Boomer Towns” in the U.S.

Your take: Can’t take a compliment? You’ll be right at home with our online commentators, including 4015, who made the comment above:

• handslikeclouds: “Brain Drainsville attracts the mediocre boomer wrecks with the small retirement plans and the health issues. It has always been said that people come here to die.”

• NevadaDemocrat: “I wonder how much it costs a Chamber of Commerce or Realtors Board to get put onto one of these lists? Did our tax dollars pay for this?”

• Spirit of Zenger: “How does our crime rate figure into the survey results?”

• 5022: “This will hold down ‘quality growth’ and will be an even bigger attraction to el cheapo liberals and illegals.”

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
