The Arizona Desert Lamp

Around the ‘sphere

Posted in Media by Evan Lisull on 6 February 2009

-Laura Donovan sits in on the visit from the creators of Stuff White People Like, and discovers that she’s only 27% white.

-Ben Kalafut of Goldwater State calls out Arizona for failing to translate basic civil liberties across languages. 

-This site has previously linked to the Arizona Guardian, but if you’re interested in Arizona state politics it really is a must-read. From its snarky Guardian Angel section:

The Angel is the proud holder of a diploma awarded by one of Arizona’s most august public universities, so the GA was deeply saddened by the mediocre protest signs created by the current crop of Devils, Cats and Jacks for a rally at the Capitol on Wednesday. Where were the stinging puns? Where were the literary references? The Haloed One even was hard pressed to compile a Top Five list. Here’s the best in this Angel’s lofty opinion: 5) “No taxation without education.” 4) “Educations should not be the next casUAlty.” 3) “Don’t be stoopid.” 2) “School’s out forsummer ever.” And, 1) “Legislators need more education.” Overall, the GA awards a final grade of C. Sorry kids, no appeals and no whining.

    “40%=DETH” didn’t make the cut?
