    Bruce Henderson at And Still I Persist has been doing a great job with great maps. So good that his server got overwhelmed. He’s moving to a dedicated server and the blog should be up again soon. Not to be missed.

    Those ARI-Zonies to the rescue. First state to send firefighters, first ones to open up stadium’s in Yuma for displaced horses and pets!

    Perhaps we can now move up the food chain a bit in this time of crisis.
