April 1, 2006
One of our local papers, The Sonoran News, published an April Fool's edition on Thursday. I went to the post office and picked up our mail, was walking out to the truck and noticed something was wrong with the logo. I glanced at some of the headlines, "Giving The Finger: Broken Finger Slows Becky" and "Should the president issue shoot to kill orders at our borders? 93% Say Yes!" Granted, publisher Don Sorchych (spelled Sorecheck on the cover) is notoriously anti-illegal immigrant, but this seemed way over the top. It was. I finally took a good look at the logo and it said "Snor 'n Snews."

I don't know if this also applies, but I got this in my inbox this morning: "On Wednesday of next week, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00 in the morning, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06. That won't happen again in this century."

I'm working on an illustration of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday blitzing on third down. I've got great reference of the place where it happened: Fourth and Fremont, in Tombstone. Big football game on January 12, 1882. It's for our sports in the Wild West piece in the next issue.
