Harry Alexander: Saying goodbye

By Harry Alexander Everything comes to an end at some point or another. Sometimes things come to an end too quickly. Sometimes things continue on too long. In this case, I believe the timing is right. This will be the final issue of the Southern Arizona News-Examiner. This dream was started by the late Emil […]

Harry Alexander: McCain-Coons immigration bill is problematic

By Harry Alexander Sen. John McCain (R/D-Ariz) this week introduced a bill that would give amnesty to at least three million illegal aliens WITHOUT immediately offering any assistance for border security. His bill does “promise” the issue will be looked at sometime in the future. What planet has McCain been on where he thinks his […]

Harry Alexander: SOTU revisited

Harry Alexander: SOTU revisited

By Harry Alexander Unlike a number of people who needed to hide from a television set when President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union to Congress and America, I watched it.

Harry Alexander: I have a DREAM

By Harry Alexander What a mess this DACA, or DREAMers, program is causing in the U.S. We’ve just finished up a short three-day shutdown of the federal government.

Harry Alexander: Tucson zoo props apparently pass

By Harry Alexander Last week, I wrote that the two City of Tucson ballot propositions concerning the Reid Park Zoo had failed.

Harry Alexander: Tucson re-elects its problems; Veterans Day thoughts

By Harry Alexander Well, another local election cycle has passed and Tucson residents will still have to put up with two ineffectual city council incumbents. Steve Kozachik and Richard Fimbres easily won re-election. In the other council race a democrat will take over from the retiring also ineffectual democrat. That means we will have to […]

Harry Alexander: Halloween, Tucson elections and Amazon

Harry Alexander: Halloween, Tucson elections and Amazon

Harry Alexander: Free speech rights and the NFL

By Harry Alexander No doubt you have all read or seen stories about the NFL players and other athletes taking “a knee” when the National Anthem is played before the start of the game.
