I have a query that returns me data like what I have below...
Temp1_TS                                         Temp2_TS
NULL                                             2011-11-01 18:08:59.883
2011-11-02 03:01:45.843            NULL

I would really like to have:
Temp1_TS                                         Temp2_TS
 2011-11-02 03:01:45.843               2011-11-01 18:08:59.883

I tried using Coalesce(Temp1_TS, Temp2_TS), but that gives me a single column with 2 rows.  I need a single row, with 2 correctly named columns.
