"Last July, illegal alien deaths were so high that the Pima County Medical Examiner's Office had to use a refrigerated truck to store some of the bodies" - p. 047 (Va.'s "Pick 3," 11/1). "Chapter Four: Nazis in the Desert" - p. 129 (N.Y.'s "Midday Numbers," 9/5). "That same week, I noticed, the president's schedule included a fund-raising event in Pittsburgh, a reception for Major League Soccer, and a concert at the White House to honor Paul McCartney. I know he's cute and all, I thought, but we're in serious trouble here! (N.J.'s "Pick 3 Midday," 10/11).
