Hot Links: Obama Coming to Phoenix; Jehovah's Witness Church Burns; Foghat and Starship Fly With Ostriches

It's not a honeymoon: President Obama will stop in Phoenix and Denver next week as part of his whirlwind U.S. tour to promote his stimulus plan. Fire, but no reported brimstone at a Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall in Mesa. Their albums have sold millions of copies, they've played before waves of adoring fans -- now Starship (once known as Jefferson Airplane) and Foghat are lucky to get a gig at the Chandler Ostrich Festival. It sorta looked like a bomb, but the device found at Washington High School in Phoenix was just a dummy built by some devious hoaxer. Desee un pedazo de dulces, senorita? U.S. candymakers move to Mexico. A shooting suspect faces another murder charge after the baby of the woman he allegedly shot dies. Whoo-hoo! Queen Creek finally gets a Chick-fil-A and an In-and-Out-Burger... And judging from this story about a "marijuana bust" involving high schoolers Queen Creek, they shouldn't have any trouble finding clientele. This sort of thing used to rate an "attaboy," but now a 26-year-old high school coach is facing charges after having sex with a 17-year-old. Troopers arrest a 27-year-old Cottonwood man after stopping his car in southern Arizona and finding nine pounds of meth.
