‘Get a life, you law enforcement officers. Your eyes are “glazed over” from too many donuts!’ azcat3620

The story: A law banning license plate frames that obscure our state name may be eased to lessen fines.

Your take: It’s about time! This was obviously just another money-grubbing scheme by the state and police who have nothing better to do.

Although azcat3620 was the only member of the Tucson Citizen’s online community to cite the shop-worn cop/donut nexus, there were plenty of other unkind things said about police officers.

“Doesn’t our government and our cops have better things to worry about?,” asked xflbret.

SatelliteSebring added, “Law enforcement should be able to distinguish without seeing the word ‘Arizona’ that it’s an AZ plate.”

trodelpost ferreted out a much deeper conspiracy: “Another taxing money grab by people that want to exert as much control on the subjects of the land as possible.”

Home diva’s puppy dies

The story: Martha Stewart’s puppy was among those killed in an accidental propane explosion at a kennel.

Your take: This is why the Citizen is going out of business.

“How many days left until the Citizen finally rolls over and dies?” asked Franklin.

“And you wonder why the Citizen is going under,” added pchen888.

No, it doesn’t make much sense to us, either.

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
