Happy 100th Birthday Arizona!

Tucson and the Santa Catalina Mountains from Gates Pass
Having grown up in Kentucky, which joined the union in 1792, I find it hard to imagine that Arizona is just now celebrating its 100th anniversary of statehood.  I see the changes that have occurred since my first visit to Tucson in the late 1960's (I was a mere child of course) but I will let the late Barry Goldwater speak for what he saw as the future of Arizona...in an article he wrote in 1962 on the occasion of Arizona's 50th anniversary of statehood.  It is very interesting reading and he has proven to be quite prescient.
