PHOENIX - Are you fascinated by reptiles? Do you have a big yard? If so, please consider adopting a desert tortoise through the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
Desert tortoises offer a unique alternative to more traditional family pets, and can teach many of the same life lessons to children, including responsibility, compassion and commitment.

Why is humor in the U.S. alive and well? Because America's most fertile field for ridicule is its enormous supply of new liberal politicians adept at producing failures with consequences that are joke material. The development of scathing punch lines exposing idiotic self-serving claims of progress benefitting society and the over-worked "middle class" are enlightening. Humorous indictments of political incompetents are as American as apple pie and are increasingly aimed at Comedy Central in Washington D.C., led by late night TV, blogs, newspapers, cable, e-mail and national conversation.

The number of patients I have seen who have come back with a significant worsening of their condition because they read about a S/ E and it scared them.
