"Grady Gammage summed it up as: AZ is a challenge. Our government does not function; we, along with the rest of the US and the world, are in transition but we are not fully aware of it. Some want to go back to the days of housing being our economic engine, and it is not and will not be. How do we get the individual, society, and government on the "same page"?
