 "As sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, every time it rains, the street floods at Elliot and Signal Butte (roads). So why don't the rocket scientists who are setting up our water system fix the street first?"

Have more to say? Send in your vent

"Instead of spending $340,000 for a study of traffic light synchronization, wouldn't it make more sense for the town of Gilbert to spend $5 for gas to drive to Mesa and find out how they've been doing it for the last 20 years?"

"As sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, every time it rains, the street floods at Elliot and Signal Butte (roads). So why don't the rocket scientists who are setting up our water system fix the street first?"

"So Sheriff Joe comes down to the middle of Mesa and arrests 30 illegal immigrants, most of which were doing ID theft (Tribune, Thursday). Where was the chief of police of Mesa? Why isn't he protecting us against these criminals? It is his city."

Yay! Sheriff Joe just saved us from 29 really bad, terrible, criminal landscapers in Mesa. What happened with all of the felony warrants that are sitting in his office?"

"To the man who cut me off on the entrance ramp of Superstition Springs (Road) to (U.S.) 60 and then proceeded to flip me off, very nice. Especially with your child in the back seat. And you are lucky a police officer did not see you, as you can get a ticket for that."

"If Gateway airport wants to borrow $3 million from Allegiant Air and pay 10 to 12 percent interest, I'll give them $5 million in a heartbeat at 8 to 9 percent interest. What a crock! Who would pay that outlandish amount of interest?"

"Want to read how Mesa congratulates a resident for years of outstanding water conservation efforts in support of their own campaign? They dispatch a utility tech all the way out to your house to check to see if your water meter is malfunctioning. Beware anyone using less water than the 'average' user."

"Attention, (Mesa) City Council! You want us to vote on bonds for one thing, to build more fire stations. I voted for a quality of life (sales) tax, part of which was to build more fire stations. Fool me once ..."

"Mesa don't need no libraries. We don't need no books around here anyway."

"To the know-it-all venter in Saturday's Tribune regarding the correct pronunciation of Germann Road. The venter said it's like 'German' with an extra 'n'. As a member of the Germann family, that is incorrect. It is pronounced correctly as 'Ger-main.' "

"Don't move here and start telling us how to say things. Just work on saying Tucson and Guadalupe correctly."

"Steve Helm, mall manager of Scottsdale Fashion Center, said he didn't get any complaints Wednesday when six of the Lush female employees were naked with aprons that didn't cover their bare bottoms. Mr. Helm, you were forewarned about the promotion and did nothing to enforce standards and decency in public shopping areas."

"I personally would not want their naked derrieres touching my 'unpackaged' soap that I then would have to use in the shower on my naked derriere."

"If we are going to have these ladies running around in their skinny, little aprons, naked as a jay bird, why do not we have men there also selling soap? For God's sake, give them a carpenter's apron and let them go to work!"

"When did they start putting high-fructose corn syrup and soy into everything from bread, salad dressings ... things you would never think of!"
