Tucson. November, 2015

On my most recent visit to see Simon and David in Tucson, a story was circulating in the newspapers about student protests concerning this soon-to-open Mexican restaurant called Illegal Pete's. Simon explained to this gringo that to name a restaurant (or anything for that matter) after a suggested illegal immigrant, especially in a state like Arizona where this is a hot issue, is to court controversy. And boycotts. Later that same day, I passed this construction site, just a block or two from the University of Arizona campus. Bad decisions all around.
