December 31, 2002
Last day. What a year! I can’t complain about much of anything. I’m doing what I love to do. How many can say that?

The Arizona Republic is doing a new year wish list for the state and they asked me to contribute. The assignment was, “What do you wish for Arizona in the coming year and how would you pay for it?” I knew all of these “civic” politico types would go on and on about the usual pie in the sky blah-logna, so I decided to be short, sweet and even more full of blah-logna. My contribution:

Arizona needs respect and cash, here’s a simple, cost-effective way to do both: Pit the Tombstone Vigilantes against a group of pedophile priests in a demolition derby in Sun Devil Stadium. Give them all Crown Vics to drive. The pay-per-view revenue alone should cover most of our budget woes thru 2010.”

Of course, they declined to run it. Too offensive.
