We pause briefly in our ponderings about Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu's sex life to consider a case equally shocking (though far less titillating). That is, how did a frail old lady named Pauline come to be giving away her house to a stranger? And not only a stranger but the person who owns the state-licensed assisted-living facility that was supposed to be taking care of her?... A spokeswoman for the hospital, Mayo Clinic, says it had no involvement in selecting an assisted-living home for Pauline. Pauline Balseiro, 78, retired to Arizona a decade ago from Malibu, Calif., where she worked in the airline industry.
