Thanks everyone for looking. I appreciate everyones input. Even if it is to say I am SOL!
What does the Subaru God (Josh) have to say?

Fail safe is to Judge OFF operation.
That is from Legacy777's page, BTW. . .
From that I would guess that you have a bad idle switch. Is the car idling badly?

Car idles a tad rough but when it warms up it is fine. Should I replace it or skip it?
Is there anything besides the O2 sensor that would make it run rich? Still kinda stinky.

Swap throttle bodies. Pull one from a junkyard. I have swapped throttle bodies on my car to have one that still has its factory settings (I played with stopscrews when I was younger :-\ ). Then I did the same with a coworker's 92 Legacy who had the same code. Problem fixed.
The idle switch is built into the TPS, which is on the passenger side of the throttle body. The TPS is set from the factory in a certain position, you can see the white marks on the screws. It's best not to mess with that, so if you just swap the whole thing, you won't have that problem.

Follow this procedure
Here's the preceeding info, which tells you which pins are which
If it's out of spec, adjust it so the readings are in spec, clear the codes, and see if you still get the code.

Anybody have any suggestions as to where I can find a bigger throttle body? Perhaps the WRX has a biggger one?
