Welcome to the Jungle

It gets worse there every day...

COTTONWOOD, Arizona. — A bobcat has attacked three people in the central Arizona community of Cottonwood, including two men who were bitten by the animal after it wandered inside a bar.

...About 11 p.m. came the call from the bar that a bobcat was inside as patrons climbed atop bar stools to get away.

Meanwhile, a Phoenix jury handed Dale "Serial Shooter" Hausner six death sentences, plus 500 years in prison for having such a lame nickname.

It has been two years and eight months since Hausner, 36, and Dieteman, 33, were arrested in the Serial Shooter crimes, which terrorized the Valley for 14 months in 2005 and 2006.

Eight people died in the attacks. Hausner was found not guilty of two of the murders. An additional 19 people were shot or stabbed but survived, and 10 animals were wounded or killed.

In all, Hausner was found guilty of 80 crimes, including multiple counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, drive-by shooting, arson and animal cruelty.

So close to our border...

Dude, is it possible for you to make your links open in a new window (or tab) rather than navigating away in the current window? Is that even an option on
I'm not sure how your other reader(s) would feel, but it would make life easier for this lazy "surfer."

You're seriously too lazy to hold down the Control key (opens in new tab) or Shift key (open in new window) when clicking links? People like you are why America's lost her way. I'll send a couple Mexicans up there to hold down the keys for you.
