Humor by Agus Hamilton: Bush throws out first pitch

George W. Bush threw out the first pitch in the Texas Rangers’ season home opener last week. The former president should do well on the dinner circuit. Former catcher Bob Uecker made a fortune regaling audiences of his eight years as the worst player in Major League Baseball history.

President Obama told Turkey the U.S. does not consider itself a Christian nation, a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. It’s sad. For over 200 years, we’ve worshipped the Almighty Dollar, so at the moment we are a nation without a church.

The New York Yankees unveiled new Yankee Stadium, with its 4,000-square-foot TV screens, electronic billboards and scoreboard. It burns nine megawatts of electricity a night. The new Axis of Evil is the left field pavilion, the right field pavilion and the Jumbotron.

A New York judge ruled that a strip bar is exempt from paying state sales taxes because pole dancing qualifies as art. That’s good news all around. Alex Rodriguez can now tell the baseball commissioner’s office that he is a patron of the arts.

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
