Murphy: 'Give us some respect'

All ASU baseball coach Pat Murphy wants is a little respect.

Yes, the Sun Devils are off to their worst start since 1985. And yes, they have lost five games in a row for the first time in six years. However, ASU's 6-8 record might not be reason to panic. The Sun Devils have the nation's toughest schedule. Four of ASU's last five losses have come on the road against top-10 teams, including No. 1 Tulane.

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.
POP CULTURE

Welcome to Wal-Mart

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.
