Grrr, it’s Monday already. I try to escape from the real world on weekends so make an effort to avoid all news if possible. That makes Mondays even worse, as I start early catching up.

Thankfully, Jonathan Larsen is here each Monday to share his reporting and tell us what went on while I was pretending nothing was happening… Jonathan writes a daily substack to share his work with you. Subscribe at

Plus, I ventured out in to the world of AZ politics this weekend and it was a pleasant surprise!
