> I should probably just say that Arizona State beat Arizona -- and leave it at that. But I won't. It happened in double overtime. ~ AZ Central

The Trinity Wall Street Church Advent calendar is a unique blend of video story and scripture. ~ link

It's not a time traveler on a mobile phone (where would the cell towers be?). It's a woman with an earache holding her ear and walking down the street talking to herself. ~ link

Don't we already have privitized prisons in Arizona? Haven't they been prominently in the news recently because of how poorly they're run and overseen -- and how easy it is for murders to escape? It looks good on paper but... ~ link

Maybe church is better if it is boring. ~ link

You gotta know something is up because you never see that many women in a Waffle House all at once. ~ link

Somebody's web-design class project? Somebody with a sense of humor?
In a diverse city known for its rich culture and beautiful beaches, Guam General Hospital offers yet another incentive – world-class health care. Guam General Hospital is a private not-for-profit hospital and one of the most comprehensive medical facilities in Guam serving a dozen counties with a population in excess of 1 million. As one of the largest hospitals in Guam, Guam General Hospital is licensed for 988 beds, and with over 3,000 employees, is one of the region's largest employers. ~ link (via)
The 678 area code listed on the website is for Atlanta, Georgia. (Guamanians do end up using GA a lot in the drop-down boxes on online store sites -- since GU is usually absent. So Georgia isn't so far from Guam -- sort'a.) And, of course, Guamanians wouldn't say "As one of the largest hospitals in Guam..." They'd say "As one of the largest hospitals on Guam."
