Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Are we in the f*cking twilight zone?

Laws related to abortion were passed in Arizona that may seem a little odd to the rest of us.

Arizona seems to be.

Lawmakers there passed three bills this legislative session that redefine all kinds of crazy things related to abortion. Here are the highlights.

1) pregnancy would be defined as officially beginning two weeks before conception. 2) abortions after the 18th week of pregnancy would be prohibited, except in medical emergencies. 3) the state must create a web site with pictures of fetuses at various stages of development for women to look at before getting an abortion. 4) high school students would now be taught that birth and adoption are the most favorable outcomes to an unwanted pregnancy. 5)doctors who withhold health information from women would be protected from lawsuits.


The bills have terrifyingly passed both the Arizona House and Senate and are headed to the desk of Governor Jan Brewer, a long-time pro-life Republican and champion of Arizona's equally spooky and invasive immigration law.

And they say there's no war

on women.
