THE PHOENIX SPECIAL
Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport is supposed to be the worst in the world
for making friends. Weather’s just too good, so no stretched time for mingling during a delay, plus a relative lack of amenities. Unless you like shops selling dream catchers and ‘Paint Your Own Pony’ sets, Wendy’s and overly lit bars with $4.40 beers and no music.
I went to see if I could debunk the notion, but broke away to Papago Park for an early m morning hike to do something serious: retrace the footsteps of my favorite dead governor, seven-time Arizona governor-elect George Hunt: a strange Missourian who called himself the ‘walrus,’ and his people ‘his peepul,’ and who died 75 years ago this Christmas.
