This is probably the most likely solution for Phoenix. They'll either reach an agreement with Mexico for desalinated water from the baja, or it'll come from the Calif coast.

Either pipeline will be horrifically expensive, but the federal gov't will probably foot much of the bill, given Phoenix's population and clout.

America's next ten cities: (The era of coming to our senses and realizing the value in history)
1. New York City-(really do you think that anything could ever replace this?)
2. Chicago-yes, it takes over the #2 spot from LA after years of the writers strike when people the world over realize that television is actually better with no writers
3. San Franciso---the west's major metropolis
4. Washington DC--global ecomony and government spending
5 and 6- Boston and Philadelphia--people realizing the good life is in fact, not baking in the sun all day but working and living a good life with a martini or two
7. Los Angeles--still there but struggling
8. Detroit--someone over there has to do something to alter the movement the automobile industry created in an era of increased consciousness of gas
9. Baltimore--still the cheap alternative to all the other east coast cities
10. Houston-Dallas-San Antonio---struggling from heat, but you know the Texans--they have to be in the top ten of everything.

I can not imagine that New York City will lose its prominence anytime soon. It really should be maintained on the list.
