Some of your Blog for Arizona writers: Larry Bodine, Carolyn Classen, Michael Bryan, Pam Powers Hannley, and Linda Lyon
All the writers on the Blog for Arizona are volunteer citizen journalists. We cover the news stories that the daily newspapers overlook, working on our own time. If you value the independent, informed writing and exclusive stories you get every day on the Blog For Arizona, we ask that you support us with a donation.
Founder and attorney Michael Bryan explains, “We have faced some significant expenses due to site updates, new security requirements, and a recent malware attack. To defray the costs of running and maintaining the site we need money. Some of you have generously contributed to our fund drive, but every little bit helps.”
With the Nov. 6 general election getting closer every day, our mission of covering “Politics from a liberal viewpoint” has never been more important. Your donation will directly be a force for change for the better in Arizona. Contribute today!

We seem to have a split of rather strong opinion on the blog. So I feel beholden to say a few things.
First, I don’t know who is right in this controversy over Mr. Garica’s book, or if there is a definitive “right” here. I haven’t read the book in question, so I have to defer to those who did, and they clearly have varying opinions about it.
That said, BlogForArizona is a community of writers who won’t always agree on everything, and that’s OK. We are not some cabal that consults with each other before we publish to ensure we present a consistent face to the readers. We are going to disagree, we may do so in public, and we are going to piss you off occasionally, and that’s OK.
I only ask that you remain respectful of each other; ultimately, we are all (mostly) Democrats here and have to stand together after the votes are all counted.
We just installed a new SSL certificate, which provides our readers with better security when logging on to BlogForArizona. Unfortunately, it also means that you may have to clear your cache in order to get on the site if you have been visiting us before the update.
In most browsers this is an option in your preferences. Simply go to the application, File, or View menu (it varies by browser) and choose preferences. Look for the option to “clear your browser cache”. This may be in the security tab, or may be under advanced settings. This will clear out saved pages and allow you to get back into the site. Some browsers allow you to clear the cache of a particular site and they are listed alphabetically; in which case you need only clear the cache for BlogForArizona.
Sorry about any frustration or inconvenience this causes you. Please know that we made this update to protect our readers from malware and snooping eyes, and to ensure that you can continue to find our blog through Google and other major search engines, who are soon requiring all sites to have valid SSL certs to list our pages in their results.
