The University of Arizona having to reduce its already compromised research budget adversely affects Tucson's business prospects. More ominously, there is a parallel impact, more punishing, less obvious, and that is the steps taken by the Arizona Legislature to choke off Southern Arizona as a political/economic influence. …
