Scorpions For Breakfast: Flipping Through Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's Book

November 4, 2011
"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). "Amid all the chaos, a group of people I don't even know started a Web site to defend me against all the obnoxious, hurtful accusations being recklessly thrown around. It was a tongue-in-cheek site in which people could post colorful descriptions of me. The actor and activist Chuck Norris alerted me to one of his favorites: Jan Brewer eats scorpions for breakfast. "I guess it was meant to be flattering. I guess it was meant to portray me as tough. But even if you're tough enough to start your day with a meal of deadly poisonous insects, it's not something you particularly want to do. You don't seek it out. You do it because there's no other honorable option" - p. 011 (N.Y.'s "Evening Numbers," 10/24).
