Arthur Frommer is a travel writer, publisher and consumer advocate. From what I have read he’s a very good travel writer, but he may be a poor American citizen. One of his latest posts strays into unknown territory for the travel writer, Arizona gun laws. Check it out at

He doesn’t call for a boycott of Arizona as I had heard, but he does say, “…I will not personally travel in a state where civilians carry loaded weapons onto the sidewalks…”. In the immortal words of Michael Jackson, “That’s ignorant.” Mr. Frommer needs to stick to travel because he is travelling in dangerous territory now, and needs to read his Constitution a little more carefully.

Apparently Mr. Frommer built his first hotel in 1969 in Amsterdam, which begs the question. Why Amsterdam? Is something wrong with America? Could Mr. Frommer maybe be a little socialist? Perhaps paranoid? With statements like the one above and further ravings about his safety from other, law abiding citizens, I think so. It may be time to retire Mr. Frommer. Somewhere more docile. Perhaps France.
