    Dance, Kim, Dance - Forget the pain, forget the unpaid bills, just dance

    To see Kim Sonderegger on-stage-- her elegant face covered in layers of make-up, her slender body wrapped in net and tulle--you'd never think she was just a "grunt." You might guess she used to prance around her parents' living room, dre...

    Insect Asides

    Most people who've had the misfortune of making my acquaintance are of the opinion that I am just another cynic hardened by living far too long as a city dweller. They couldn't be more wrong. Just this past week I bought my fourth farm--speci...

    MacDonald: This Shakedown Artist Didn't See the Real Profits

    Some thoughts about the Peter MacDonald hearings: I pick up my Arizona Republic each morning in the dark. I walk with it to the porch light. It is then that I'm able to see that Pat Murphy's Republic staff has placed still another story...

    Four Easy Pieces

    I'm not a Lute Olson fan. To me, any Sunday his University of Arizona team loses a basketball game on national TV is a fine one. I've nothing against the Wildcat players. Actually, they appear quite likable. They play very well, too. It...

    The Perfect Couple

    I called Cameron and Heidi because I cannot imagine what it feels like to be an entirely likable person. I cannot imagine that the day will ever come when drill squads of military men will tramp across the TV screen and chant about me ...

    Jesus Swiped My Goldfish

    The morning coffee had yet to complete the perk cycle when my three-year-old son hollered, "Daddy! Come look! Come look!" I get this request about 3,000 times a day. There was no reason to suspect I was being summoned to view anything more unu...

    Dear Cap'n Dave, Where can you go in Phoenix and spend $3 for a lunch that would fill a Phoenix Cardinals defensive lineman? Answer: Food City, at 1648 South 16th Street. A mixed burro, side of beans, and a medium Coke will set yo...

    Gimme Shelter! - When the homeless speak, inventor Bill Moss listens. His solution: paper houses for those left out in the cold.

    If Bill Moss can teach Arabs how to sew tents, he can probably teach America how to house its homeless. At least house them temporarily so they won't freeze to death in the long, cold night. House them in cardboard. This f...

    The Road to Hell is Paved

    It's relatively easy to turn a "2" into a "4" on a piece of paper. Mark Killian thinks he can do the same thing with Arizona law. Four years ago state lawmakers agreed to let Maricopa County voters decide whether to impose a temporary ...
