Humor by Argus Hamilton: Rabid NFL fans

Chicago officials met with the International Olympic Committee and made the case for the Illinois city to host the Summer Olympics in seven years. It’s premature. They shouldn’t make any decision until after the games in London, when we find out if the American team defects or comes home.

NFL fans are so rabid, says The American College of Cardiology, that a team losing the Super Bowl risks giving its followers fatal heart attacks. Not so fast. The study wasn’t adjusted for the pork rinds and empty beer bottles and couches where the heart attacks occurred.

George W. Bush signed a $4 million book deal to write his memoirs about his time in the White House. He’s going on the road with Mikhail Gorbachev. They’re going to do a comedy act called the Last Communist President of the Soviet Union and the Last Capitalist President of the United States.

President Obama fired GM Chief Executive Rick Wagoner (right) for favoring trucks and SUVs over hybrid compacts. It’s insane. The U.S. crushed Japan 64 years ago using huge Pratt and Whitney engines. Apparently, we learned nothing from the experience.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
