  • On June 8, 1993, staff writer Robert Rosenthal mused on the undying popularity of the Grateful Dead: “”Consensus says that these new songs are stinkers, but that’s okay. The Grateful Dead have been putting out unfulfilling studio records for years. It’s almost comforting.””
  • On June 14, 1988, KUAT-TV employee Joe Brewster told the Arizona Summer Wildcat he planned to run for Pima County Sheriff on a platform that included legalization of marijuana and prostitution. Brewster called the law enforcement at the time “”sullen and sarcastic,”” and called for a return to “”common-sense”” law enforcement.
  • On June 11, 1971, the Wildcat reviewed the Rolling Stones’ latest album, Sticky Fingers, and predicted: “”I don’t believe the Stones will be around much longer. … They are not likely to cut down on persistent drug use.””
  • On June 6, 1989, the Wildcat editorialized that President George H. W. Bush “”should strongly consider severing diplomatic ties”” with China after the previous weekend’s massacre of hundreds of pro-democracy protesters in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.
