Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

We swiped this terrific photo from the Facebook page of Rachel Alexander, former henchwoman for shamed former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas (which you can see here). Plus, we've been sitting on the above photo of Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and Congressman Trent Franks for more than a week.

It's time for it to get a little love in this week's New Times' You Write the Caption contest.

Bachmann was in town last week to talk about how illegal immigration is now a terrorism issue (read all about that here), and that's when we snapped the above shot.

Here's how you play You Write the Caption: We show you a picture (above) and you -- in the comment section of this post -- write what you think would be an appropriate caption.

On Monday, we'll announce the top-five reader captions and put them to a vote. The winner will receive a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building for a firm handshake and a lukewarm glass of municipal Phoenix tap water.

Do your worst -- and let's try to keep things somewhat polite (in other words, keep  death threats to a minimum).

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
