“I just read your editorial in Friday’s paper about the Pinal County sheriff. If he can’t be trusted to write an honest letter as a member of AzPOST, how can he be trusted to testify in court?

Have more to say? Send in your vent

“Every word in your paper is in the dictionary. Therefore, you plagiarized everything in the paper. How many words do you have to put together to call it plagiarism?”

“Pinal County Sheriff Chris Vasquez, who has been plagiarizing from the Internet, excuses his behavior by simply changing the name of the crime to ‘providing a public service.’ So, why don’t we follow suit, call things like prostitution a public service, and justify them off the books?”

“What is the big deal about the secrecy involving the arrest of the serial killer (Tribune, Friday)? I’m so glad the police waited until their investigation was complete before releasing any information. Wouldn’t you hate to see the sick animal released on a technicality ?”

“When Cathi Herrod, the head of the Center for Arizona Policy, said California judges ignored the will of the people in overturning the law against same-sex marriages, she means only the people who think like she does. The rest of us know better.”

“If a student can’t pass the AIMS test, how is he going to enter ASU anyway? (Granting bonus points for diplomas) doesn’t seem right to me. Are we wasting a lot of taxpayer money sending people to school who haven’t put the effort forth to pass AIMS?”

“We just want to tell Jäger the service dog (Letters, Friday) that we are just as bothered by the brats of rotten parents as he is.”

“This is to the dog that writes letters to the editor. Sit! Stay! Stop writing letters!”

“President Bush is trying to make fun of (Barack) Obama, saying you can’t negotiate with terrorists. Well, we can’t afford to keep fighting them at the tune of $30 billion a month. … He’s going to bring down our democracy and our government and our way of life because we will go bankrupt.”

“Hooray for Barack Obama and any U.S. president smart enough to know that we need to talk to our enemies, not just our friends. If over 4,000 dead U.S. soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens could speak, they might attest to that. Thank God Bush’s days are numbered !”

“People are calling for (John) McCain to step down from his senator’s seat because he’s running for office. You never hear anybody say Hillary (Clinton) and (Barack) Obama should step down. They’re senators, too.”

“Recently while vacationing to China, I was appalled by the behavior and arrogance of my fellow American travelers. The disrespect they displayed embarrassed me greatly.”

“I am holding a competition between my stimulus check and my mortgage foreclosure paperwork to see which one arrives first.”

“The government should supply me with health insurance. The government should also supply me with car insurance. Then, after I eat, they can throw me over their shoulder and burp me.”
