Kristel Foster transformed into Rodney Glassman tonight

Former Grijalva aide Rodney Glassman, a rich Fresno farmer that even Dolores Huerta and the UFW endorsed, is now a Republican, just as he was before.

Full disclosure: Kristel Foster and Three Sonorans used to be really good friends. In fact, she was the one that convinced me to start blogging! It was the summer of 2010, right when SB1070 and HB2281 were going down. Only one person was running for the US Senate against John McCain from the Democrats at the time, and it was a slimy weasel by the name of Rodney Glassman, who is now a Republican today. Rodney used to love to sing, and you may have heard him at a UA game singing the national anthem. The sad thing is he […]

Jon Justice is leaving Tucson and vacating his morning show that he has had for the past 9 years on 104.1. Justice was one of the top vocal critics of local Latinx activists who used to bash on the now-banned yet super-successful Mexican American Studies program almost daily while it still existed. Jon Justice is leaving Tucson today. Joe Higgins from the morning show on KVOI is leaving at the end of this month. However, he is staying here in Tucson to focus more on his business. The morning show, Wake Up Tucson, will be expanding to 3 hours, from […]

Did you hear what happened on Monday’s Buckmaster Show?

buckmaster-banner-2016

Three Sonorans is a big fan of the Bill Buckmaster Show. While we cannot always listen live, the show has an excellent podcast that is usually available as soon as one hour after the show. We just heard today’s show and… wow! The Monday Show has a face-off with a liberal and a conservative, in this case Paul Eckerstrom and Bruce Ash, respectively, and things got a bit heated needless to say. An excerpt (under 2 minutes) has been made for you below. Three Sonorans also has a monthly skit on the Buckmaster Show when we debate the TEA Party. […]

Principal Auggie Romero attacks math teachers at Pueblo HS: Emails about grade inflation to HT released

Auggie Romero and a team of highly-paid TUSD admins failed to do in over a year what Curtis Acosta did for free in a few weeks in his spare time.

“Dr. Romero has become so desperate to help his reputation that he encourages grade inflation. Teachers who chose not to go along with grade inflation are being looked down upon with this passive aggressive behavior, which means teachers get the “bad” classes and people that grade inflate get to chose their classes. Instead of encouraging students to rise and work up to their potential he wants the bars lowered. Arizona is already so behind in education that lowering the bar is a disservice to the students. It’s quite disgusting to see this happen. Dr. Romero claims that he is here […]
