Gila Bend Branch Library Rates Mention in Opening Paragraph of Article About Prince Harry

Military Drills Paired With Shrimp?  For a Prince, It's Possible.  (The New York Times, 10/26/2011)

Excerpt: Among the books mentioning princes in the Gila Bend Branch Library is “The Prince and the Potty,” about a young prince learning to outgrow his diaper, and “The Frog Prince Continued,” about a frog who was turned into a prince but kept hopping on furniture and flicking his tongue at flies.

But it is the story of a real-life prince that has captivated the people of Gila Bend, from youngsters to old-timers. If it were a book, it might be called “The Prince and the Shrimp Eating Contest.

Come on down, Harry!

Gila Bend (GB) is often the butt of jokes in Maricopa County. Sort of like Polish and Newfie jokes.

I used to fill-in at GB the branch is small but with a loyal clientele. Driving out there was a major hassle.

The one steady employee there was married to a guy who works on the bombing range. He once found illegals sheltering in the plywood vehicle mock-ups used as targets.
