    Hum. My first thought is I wonder if rescam is a scam to build up a mailing list.

    Great idea, but didn’t they just give the game away?
    Do they really go straight to smart-ass mode? I have to think the scammers will catch on pretty quickly. Maybe the ad was just being cheeky, and the responses are more….realistic.

    Regardless, great idea.

    Re: Snowflake

    Like Tombstone and Show Low (among others), those not-from-Arizona might think that Snowflake is just another of those places with a quirky name.

    Not so.

    Snowflake was settled by two familes; the Snows and the Flakes. When their little berg got big enough to need a name, “Snowflake” was a natural choice.

    Arizona’s current and soon-to-be retired Senator Jeff Flake was born in Snowflake. He came to elective office out of his tenure at the Goldwater Institute, and his terms in the Congress reflected his libertarian-ish views, but while in the Senate, not-so-much.

    But Jeff Flake has another connection to politics and Snowflake. His uncle was once the Speaker of the Arizona Legislature before he moved into the Arizona Senate. In 2008, the now-late Jake Flake from Snowflake died in office from injuries he received from falling off a horse.
