ON THE COVER
The sweat slowly trickles from 19-year-old Courtney Gagle's forehead. Her heart is racing and her breathing is strained. She thinks about stopping, but she knows she shouldn't.

Gagle thinks to herself about how thrilled she is to be at the happiest place on earth as she walks through Disneyland in California. She trudges on for a few more feet until she realizes that no amount of excitement is enough to make her get to the next ride. She spots a bench, walks over and collapses as if she just ran a marathon at a record-breaking pace.

Welcome to Wal-Mart

Wal-mart, the nationís largest retailer, is known for its low prices, but also for its crowded and somewhat hectic environment.
To walk into Wal-Mart is to enter a world of endless noise, masses of merchandise stuffed on every available surface and a smiling old man saying, "Welcome to Wal-Mart."

The nation's largest retailer, known for its low, low prices, yellow smiley face icons and tendency to put the little guy out of business is tough to take, even in small doses. But just imagine working there.

Triple Shot: Coming out

Every Friday night, somewhere in the greater Phoenix area, there is a partier wishing for something more.

Perhaps she is at the neighborhood watering hole, and a plastic cup of tapped Pabst Blue Ribbon is just not going down as smoothly as expected. Or perhaps he is alone on Mill Avenue sipping a cocktail when he is suddenly overtaken by a drunken troop of human Barbie and Ken dolls.
