"Is people group thinking still relevant in today’s more-urban world?" Doug Lucas responds. ~ link

Our governor's political rhetoric is sounding more and more like delusional paranoia. Troubling and sad. Do we need to do an intervention? ~ AZ Central

Mesa, Arizona was the fastest growing city in the nation in the 70, 80's, and early 90's. Now it may be experiencing population decline. ~ KTAR

Not very many people are moving into Arizona these days -- and that is slowing the economic recovery here. Is it that everyone thinks we're all a bunch of bigots? Or maybe they've somehow got the impression that this is a third world war zone. Have we become our own worst enemy?~ AZ Central

The ASU Police Department now using three-wheeled Piagios for patrol. Way cool. ~ ABC15

Oh great, I got email that says, "Arizona Bankruptcy is now following you on Twitter!" That exactly what I need -- bankruptcy in hot pursuit! But I think they're probably wasting their time and energy. They should go follow someone else around!

Never mind, the whole revolution thingy was probably a mistake. "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore..." ~ Fidel Castro is my site which highlights the he best and most engaging of the online promotional games and sweepstakes.
