More than 200,000 Arizonans who have permits to carry concealed weapons would be able to bring them into most public buildings under terms of a bill given preliminary Senate approval Tuesday, ignoring “no guns” signs at the door.
Escapism is an underrated part of life, something devalued from a combination of cynicism and a lack of pragmatic purpose. But flights into fantasy are invaluable when coping with something large and frightful, or simply trying to stave off impending doom.
My role in resurrecting a dead criminal case began a few weeks back with an out-of-the-blue phone call courtesy of a private eye named Don Corbett. He phoned with news of a strange case with ties to a Mesa woman and an impending trip to Scottsdale for an interview or potentially an interrogation.
Family road trips are an important piece of our heritage, so it’s likely that most of us have a special road trip tucked away as a favorite childhood memory. Mine was a summer jaunt to visit family in Lake Stevens, Wash. Endless “license plate game” and “cyclops” hours later, and we arrived at our first main stop — Redwood National Park. As I unfolded myself out of our station wagon, I’ll never forget my jaw-dropping awe as I peered to look up at these giant trees kissing the sky. Although we camped only a night among the canopies of these behemoths, it’s that part of the two-week trip that was forever etched in my memory. As an adult and parent, state and national parks remain a favorite; there’s something about the unspoiled beauty and beckoning adventure that makes everyone feel like a kid.
The arrival of spring means that flea markets are reopening for business around the country. Shoppers will hunt for treasures amid acres of used goods. A few will come home with just the right vintage art or quirky piece of furniture to make their home more beautiful.
When most of us think of the word, “Diet,” we cringe. It congers up thoughts of hunger and deprivation, and it suggests that we need to make some often unpleasant changes. Yet, millions of people go on diets every day. The diet industry is a multibillion-dollar one, and it continues to grow. What is it that keeps us so tied to diets? There are many benefits to dieting, some of which are obvious. But there are a few “hidden” benefits of dieting that might explain why we love diets … and why we keep going on them.

“The sky is falling! The sky is falling and we must tell the king,” proclaimed Chicken Little to Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky, Goosely Loosey, Turkey Lurkey and Foxy Loxy in “The Story of Chicken Little.” I feel like they could have named the protagonist Mikey Microsoft and it would be the same story. Companies love to throw a scare into people using older versions of their products to induce them into purchasing the latest and greatest version so they go around like a town crier telling anyone who will listen, they no longer will support Windows XP after April 8. What shall we do? What shall we do?
I drove by the Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course the other day when the wind was up. It was odd to see dust blowing across the course. There was something forlorn about it. On the other hand, it seemed like the desert was reclaiming its own. On Ash Wednesday, millions of Christians received the sign on the cross on their foreheads in ashes with the admonition, “remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.” It is the spoken decree of God in Genesis 3:19 as Adam and Eve are tossed out of the garden. There is something powerful yet troubling about those words. I remember one year marking the cross on a beautiful baby and nearly choking on what seemed to be such a dark proclamation. She was not a year old, just how depraved could she be?
