Your stories are a beacon of light in the dark fear mongering world of Arizona. And yur sentances are reel gud to. Congrats to everyone who worked on the series.

So many times on other forums people will go "off" on anyone who is trying to point out that what they hear coming from Arizona's Pearce, Brewer and Arpaio are facts. And so many times I have referred them to your articles (and others here at the New Times) for facts that you have uncovered and written. I believe that in a number of instances I have been able to shine a light on the lies they have believed.

Arpaio in particular is often cited. You might be surprised at how many people out there believe that what he does can't happen to them. Pearce? All it takes is pointing out that he has effectively dumped his own grandchildren into the foster care system. His "patriot" stance that is often lauded? His association with J.T. Ready is often an eye opener. Folks decrying the fact that he is called a racist? Photos of him with Ready and that 'fruit doesn't fall far from the tree' story of his son opens eyes too.

It is unnerving that so many people outside the state of Arizona are eager to drink the Kool-Aid of their hatred. It is so important that your articles and fact-based jounalism is available to those of us who seek to debunk the stereotypes and myths.

There are others, including myself, who have been slandered online and threatened and harrassed by those who can't handle the truth. So much hatred and so many people who wish to hang onto the propaganda that fulfills their need for roiling hatred that seems genetic and seeking a convenient outlet. But then again, there are others who are just misinformed and when they see the situation in Arizona for what it is, they actually stop and think and read what all of you have written.

Thank you.

Well deserved, folks. Kudos for all your efforts, even when you are clearly wrong (should that ever happen).

That award must be based on something other than your abilities to be good journalists because the staff is found to be lacking in that area. If this award is for your ability to put your own thoughts down in poorly constructed sentances though, congrats to you, and to them for getting it right.
