[EDITORIAL] Crickets from critics in Scottsdale

crickets chirping Every community has critics. And that’s a good thing, especially in an age of a declining fourth estate. Their eyes, ears and energy can be just what’s needed to shine a light into some darker places.

But in Scottsdale activism has become its own art form, its own sport. While there are certainly problems in one of America’s best cities some of the criticism operates in an existential-like luxury of complaint – kind of like Peter Cook cheating on Christie Brinkley. He was lucky to be married to her before he wasn’t, like Scottsdale residents are fortunate to live where they do, until they don’t.

Again, don’t get us wrong. Scottsdale Ferrari-Maserati just moved off of McDowell Road northward into Phoenix. While a used car dealer took its place it reminds all that McDowell Road continues to be an urban sore, decades after the problem was understood. And will Scottsdale have enough revenue to complete the amazing achievement to date that has been the McDowell Sonoran Preserve? The city’s Entertainment District is, overall, a great asset but some of the operators there are not exactly Johnny Responsible.
