Arizona Wildcats Win 2012 CWS

Congratulations to the University of Arizona Wildcat baseball team for beating the two-time defending champions South Carolina Gamecocks to capture the 2012 College World Series (CWS) title.

Arizona did not lose a game in the NCAA Tournament, and won its last 11 games and 18 of its last 20 in 2012, a great time of the year to get hot. They played flawlessly! This NCAA baseball crown is the Wildcats 4th national title (also 1976, 1980 and 1986).

100 Years, 100 Ranchers

Scott Baxter traveled across Arizona photographing ranching families that have been around since the state's birth. This mythos of the American West serves as inspiration for a new centennial exhibit at the Tucson Museum of Art entitled "100 Years 100 Ranchers: Photographs by Scott Baxter."

Arizona: At Least We're Not Mexico

Someone behind the political scenes recently leaked to me this alleged Republican campaign theme being considered for the upcoming state elections - "Arizona: At Least We're Not Mexico"

An unknown Democrat argued that, perhaps politically, we are exactly the same. Any thoughts?
