First, a tribute to Alan Rickman who died this past week. A clip from “Quigley Down Under,” featuring Rickman as a real bad guy. Then, Franzi and Bunker De France talk about the state of the Rillito Race Track in Tucson. The historic track is being converted for multi use by the Pima County supervisors for use as a race track and soccer fields. Rillito is where quarter horse racing was born and where the first photo-finish camera was born.
