SALOME
"WHERE SHE DANCED"

THIS DESERT TOWN WAS MADE FAMOUS BY THE HUMOR OF DICK WICK HALL, HEALTHSEEKER AND OPERATOR OF THE LAUGHING GAS STATION. HALL'S PUBLICATION OF THE SALOME SUN WAS FILLED WITH EXTRAVAGANT TALES OF THE DESERT'S ADAPTATION OF SPECIES. HE TOLD OF HIS FROG THAT WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD AND NEVER LEARNED TO SWIM.

In Salome, Arizona, Salome is pronounced suh-LOM (two syllables, long o at the end, for which, it seems, there is no HTML special character code).
