Still emitting zingers but notably less frenetic than in prior years, the perpetually youthful comic was an active participant, to the delight of all, in a panel discussion called "The Innovative Genius of Jerry Lewis."

In a stunning blow to the Tea Party movement, a huge turnout in Mesa's conservative LD 18 overwhelmingly voted out Arizona's hardline State Senate President Russell Pearce in a historic recall election today.
