Travel woes: Some still searching for flights home


If students haven't booked their airline flights home for Thanksgiving break by now, they better be prepared to drive, said Michael Glen, the UA branch manager for STA Travel.

Veronica Duncan, a travel adviser for STA, said she met with many students last week who were looking for last-minute deals for Thanksgiving-time travel.

"They're baffled as to why it's so expensive," Duncan said.

Though airline tickets may appear to be pricier, Annika Blau, a travel adviser for STA, said seats aren't more expensive than usual, but premium seats are the only seats available for those searching for flights at the last minute. [Read article]

Arizona holds on in first round of Maui Invitational

Unranked Kansas gave the No. 9 Arizona basketball team all it could handle last night in the first round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Hawaii, before the Wildcats crept out with a 61-49 win to advance to the semifinals.

Arizona will play the winner of the Connecticut-Arkansas game in tomorrow's second round at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN.

Kansas tied the score at 41 with 11:46 left to play on freshman guard Mario Chalmers' jump shot, but Arizona used a 20-8 run the rest of the game to come out with the win. [Read article]

To err is Bush, but to lie?


What is a liar?

Like all pieces of loaded language, it means different things to different people. But most would say that a liar is someone who knowingly makes a false statement.

For an example, see Bill Clinton's whopper, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."

As of late, many prominent figures on the left (congressmen, activists, filmmakers of considerable girth) have been saying that our current president is a liar because of the false statements he made regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. [Read article]

It seems like the perfect vehicle for a romantic farce starring Jack Black, Kirstie Alley or some other overweight comedic actor. Here's the premise: An aging, portly man down on his luck and desperate for some green, tries his hand at the gigolo business.

Scouting out his prospective clients, being the ever-astute statistician, he tries to improve his chances of scoring a meal ticket by not just sending out one letter of seduction but two, both to women who reside in the same town. He also uses the same letter verbatim, recycling the same sweet nothings but being careful enough to switch names when appropriate. [Read article]

More than 7,000 bike in 23rd annual El Tour de Tucson

As the sun rose over the Santa Catalina Mountains on a chilly Saturday morning, thousands of bicyclists - young and old, experienced and novice - geared up for a daylong adventure.

The adventure: a winding, hilly, dusty 109-mile journey around the perimeter of Tucson, starting and ending near the Tucson Convention Center to raise money for Tu Nidito Children and Family Services, the American Parkinson's Disease Association and the Global Sports Alliance. [Read article]
