[OPINION] Phoenix, Tucson columnists have a hell of a disagreement

HellBy Tim Steller | Arizona Daily Star

(Editor’s note: Opinion pieces are posted only for purposes of discussion.)

Most of you were probably too busy outside, enjoying a beautiful Sunday in Tucson, to get the word from a Phoenix pundit that you were actually in hell.

That’s the word Arizona Republic columnist Doug MacEachern used to describe Tucson in an out-of-nowhere condemnation of the Old Pueblo.

I hesitate to dignify a piece that read like the sudden resolution of a long bout of constipation, but here’s his precise wording:

“Once you force yourself to come down off picturesque Ina Road and Skyline Drive up in the Catalina Foothills, which is where all of Tucson’s most well-heeled liberals live, you must drive downward into, you know, hell. Which is to say Tucson proper. Which in nearly every respect is a basket case, especially financially.”
