Re: “Tales From the Outskirts: Arivaca

You forgot to mention Arivaca resident Clara Godfrey's attempt to popularize cockfighting. My visit to her back yard back in 1996 steeled my resolve to see cockfighting put on the trash heap of history. I had been opposed to it on principle, but seeing handlers with blood dripped down to their elbows after numerous attempts to get fatigued birds fighting again, seeing small children watch one handler put his rooster into his mouth to help clear its airway, and then the blood dripping down his chin, made it pretty certain I'd see the long ballot process through to its just conclusion. That's my Arivaca. Last time I drove through, Clara Godfrey was standing outside and I waved. She waved back unaware of who I was and what our encounter had meant.
