Wassa matter, Russ, didja hear your momma callin'? State Senate committee gives Jack Harper's bonehead mic move a pass. DMX in trouble, again. The D-Backs give the Rockies a bruisin'. Mike Phelps finds gold in China, lots of it. In women's gymnastics, U.S.A. garners silver. Someone at the Tucson Citizen finally comes to the defense of pro-immigrant firebrand Isabel Garcia. Barriozona interviews Chief Gascon. And the Tempe 12 girls deliver some much-needed hump-day hotness.
