Arizona vs. Arkansas

Someone from Arizona moved to Arkansas and misses the cactus.<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">We now have the gentle waves of DeGray Lake practically lapping at our back deck, not to mention more than two acres of grass to mow. In Tucson, we were greeted each morning by the outstretched arms of a giant saguaro cactus outside our front window.</span><br /></div><br />This is big news in the <a href=";entry_id=1646" title="" onmouseover="window.status=’’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Arkadelphia (AR) Siftings Herald</a>. And why shouldn’t it be? We have a big competition here in the US for residents. Every state is battling with every other state for new and better people to come to their state and fill out the ranks. And here we have a classic example of AR beating out AZ for one key person, notwithstanding all the fantastic cacti one can find in AZ. It’s a mystery worth pondering. <br /><br />I wonder what the people in AK think? Well, I can tell you that they regretted losing 2 of us to CA 12 years ago. It made all the local papers, and generated so many letters to the editor they had to set aside a page just to print the whole controversy. True story.<br /> <br />
