Personally, I can think of many reasons to not live in Arizona: the heat, the abundance of speed traps (a costly lesson) and the high resident/meth lab ratio. And know I can add something else to my “con” list: scorpions. No, not the Scorpions who sing about the “Wind of Change” (that’s reason not to move to Germany), but the actual arachnids.
That’s a lesson that Jhonny Peralta and his wife Molly learned recently while staying in the Phoenix suburb of Goodyear for Cleveland Indians spring training. The CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER reports that Molly Peralta was bitten under the arm by a scorpion while sleeping in a house the couple were renting.
