Sun Corridor had always been the butt of jokes but when it sent a cactus that had been rescued from a trailer park to Jeff Bezos at Amazon in an effort to lure the company to southern Arizona it became a national embarrassment. That embarrassment has been compounded now due to the fact that Amazon has had to gift the cactus to the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum.
According to a tweet by Amazon News, because the company cannot accept gifts it has regifted the 21-foot Saguaro cactus.
Sun Corridor Inc., which passes itself off as an economic development group, admitted that the cactus was nothing more than a publicity stunt.
When asked in an interview on the James T. Harris radio show what he thought of the cactus gift by Sun Corridor, Pima County Supervisor Steve Christy said, “I’ll tell you what Amazon thought of it. They donated it.”
