PHOENIX — A special task force is recommending tougher penalties on “johns” who patronize underage prostitutes. But several state lawmakers are not sure they can sell it to colleagues.
In the July 11th opinion piece, "Rosenstein: Should the legal BAC level be .05?", Craig Rosenstein wrote that most people only begin to be impaired to operate a motor vehicle at a BAC level of .08 and that there are no peer-reviewed studies supporting that impairment begins at lower levels. As the National Transportation Safety Board thoroughly laid out in our recent report, those statements are factually inaccurate.

To Edward F. Murphy regarding his comment about the Mormon church being populated with hypocrites: I just wanted to let you know that not one of the members of the LDS church is perfect. In fact, that is true of every religion. I hope you are not that naive to think so. Like yourself we are tempted and make wrong decisions and mistakes. We are each individuals, free to make our own decisions hopefully trying to be better each day. I hope you would be doing the same. To accuse an entire religion of being “the epitome of hypocrites who populate... the Mormon church” is exactly what’s wrong with our society. Although I do not condone drunk driving in any way, I’m not sure what’s worse, driving drunk or judging others? And it doesn’t matter because all I need to worry about is me and being the best person I can be without belittling others since I am far from perfect myself. I guess what I’m saying is lets all try to be a positive contributor to society, since I’m sure we’ve all done hypocritical things in our life too. Especially when a family is grieving over the loss of a loved one and want to remember them in a positive way. You would want others to be kind if it was your loved one.

Sarah Longwell: When most of us think of Memorial Day, we think of long weekends with our family, trips to the shore, and barbeques in the backyard.
