9. How does a lawyer get appointed to the Superior Court bench in Maricopa County?
Take the case of Chris Skelley, appointed to the bench last week by Governor J. Fife Symington III.
Skelley's father is a former far-right-wing-Republican member of the House of Representatives who was a close ally of Burton Barr.

11. What's the worst-designed airport terminal in North America?
Terminal Four at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport wins hands down. Nobody can possibly cope with it. To start with, the system of ramps intimidates you even before you get in the building. A prize should be given for anyone who is able to park his car, pick up a passenger and then find his car again in less than 40 minutes. The long walk to the gates makes a stressful journey out of every trip out of town.
