Gabrielle Giffords arrives in Tucson for weekend visit to hometown

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords touched down in her hometown of Tucson, Arizona, on Friday to see her family for the weekend, according to her congressional office.

"Gabrielle and Mark are looking forward to a beautiful weekend," her office posted on Twitter.

Giffords was released from TIRR Memorial Hermann in Texas this week to begin outpatient rehabilitation, and the visit is her first to Arizona since January, her office said in a statement.

    I'm glad she is all better and is able to leave the hospital. What I'm curious about is does she still think the right wing conspiracy was out to target her or has anyone bothered to tell her that it was just a crazy guy who didn't seem to have any political leanings that shot her and the others? Does she still point and blame the right wing members of society for the shooting? I hope someone clears this matter up with her, after the rapid and vicious lies spread by MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, ABC, etc.

      With that much brain damage, I doubt she thinks about much at all anymore.

    I think you mean, "... I doubt she thinks much at all anymore." Leave out the word "about". Understand? It seems our schools are failing too many people.

    @ Troll of Jazzzzzzzz:
    I agree with you that removing "about" tightens the sentence, but it may squeeze too much fat out of the style. Don't make them want to stop reading.
    What did Jazzzzzzzz ever do to you? Did she steal your trick?
    It's always nice to see you.

    Look around you. There is need everywhere. Get out and help your neighbors.
    Hopefully she does have a great weekend and a good quality of life. This is a person who, from all reports, searved her country, and continues to serve her country for all the right reasons.

    Way to take the wind out of the sails in what is a heart-warming story.

    Hi Joey. Thank you for noticing. I sometimes want to get a troll and ring it by its neck. What's new with you?
