The State of Alaska is bigger than the State of Texas!

And Texas takes more than a days driving to cross if you are going East to West, or West to East! The US in general is 3,000 miles wide and about 1,500 miles tall, in kilometers that is about 4800 KM wide and about 2400 KM tall!

Though never sent to the electric chair, before becoming a noted gunfighter, the infamous "Doc" Holliday was a dentist.

Virgil Earp, interviewed May 30, 1882, in The Arizona Daily Star in summing up Holliday said of him:

Tales were told that he (Holliday) had murdered men in different parts of the country; that he had robbed and committed all manner of crimes, and yet, when persons were asked how they knew it, they could only admit it was hearsay, and that nothing of the kind could really be traced to Doc's account.

It's a fact that I have a huge contingent of my family living in Phoenix, Arizona - uncles, aunts, etc. It is also a fact that I have visited more parts of Arizona than my sister who has lived there for more years than we both care to remember. It's also a fact that Arizona has two of the most popular tourist sites in the whole of the USA - the Grand Canyon and London Bridge.
