Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

A note for friends and foes of the Feathered Bastard: For the time being, posts directly related to the Tucson massacre that I write will be posted in Valley Fever. For instance, I just posted one that responds to a pro-gun editorial by my colleague Ray Stern.

The title of my piece is "Mental Health Check for Gun Buys? Talk About a Straw Man..."

To read it, just follow the link, here.

New Times wants all the Tucson terror-related stuff in one basket for easy access, which makes perfect sense.

So, what I'll do is alert you when I post something in Valley Fever. That way you can get over there and get your debate on.

UPDATE: Ray responded to my response, and I've responded to it, here.

This is getting wacky. Just like "Point-Counterpoint" back in the day...

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
