Arizona’s Ocean
 n.— «In 1853, had the Gadsden Purchase been squared off horizontally instead of following the existing rail line, Puerto Peñasco would be part of Arizona. So it is natural for many to refer to it as “Arizona’s Ocean,” since it is closer than any California destination.» —“Warning about Mexico ill-informed” by Jim Hamblin Arizona Republic (Phoenix) Mar. 27, 2005.
