1Super porn: Comcast cable TV viewers saw a different type of scoring while watching Super Bowl XLIII. The telecast underwent gridiron interruptus when a 30-second porn clip aired. The porn featured full-frontal male nudity, giving new meaning to the expression “going long.” No one as been brought to justice in the incident, which a Comcast spokesperson termed an “isolated malicious act.” Traumatized customers who saw the offending segment can request from Comcast a $10 credit.

2″Makeover”: The family of a 14-year-old Tucson girl with a rare congenital blood disorder receive a new home, thanks to the dreams-come-true TV show, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

3Tent city: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans to move about 200 illegal immigrant inmates from Durango Jail to a tent city, claiming that the move will result in unspecified savings.

4Layoffs: The University of Arizona will have to lay off 200 people and reduce outreach and arts programs after the state Legislature reduces funding by $57 million. Three museums will close.

5A stimulating proposal: Forget the Democrats’ $900 billion economic stimulus package, conservative columnist Linda Chavez says. Why not just give Americans $3,000 apiece, providing that they spend it and not sock it away for what looks to be a string of rainy days, she argues. “The virtue of this plan,” Chavez says, “would be that the market would allocate the money far more efficiently than any scheme government bureaucrats could come up with.



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
