“I’m trying to quit smoking, but how can you when you’ve got people like the ACLU and Arizona businesses that want to hire illegal immigrants?”

“The last time I applied for a job, I had to present a driver’s license, Social Security number, mother’s maiden name, where born and when, etc. The lawsuit against the state (employer sanctions law) infuriates me. Present your papers and if you are denied employment, go home!”

“Checking a person’s legal status in the U.S. is no different than checking a person’s background for crimes committed. What part of legal and illegal don’t they understand?”

“Five counts of manslaughter for a red-light violation (Tribune, Wednesday)? I think that’s slippery slope we don’t want to go down.”

“Isn’t it just like the education system? They don’t take the blame for anything. It always somebody else’s fault. Here they are blaming a contradiction in the rules for No Child Left Behind (Tribune, Wednesday) as the reason why our schools are such failures.”

“These old mine shaft holes that are openings in the ground where the young girl just died … why doesn’t the state put a bounty out? Surely, there are people who know about these holes in even some obscure parts of the state.”

“Filling all of these empty mine holes in the ground, a good way to do that, shore them up a little bit and fill them full of garbage. Metal garbage, heavy stuff, not paper.”

“I’m just curious about the venter in Wednesday morning’s paper that says humans have encroached on the coyotes’ home. Where does she suggest humans live? Is she willing give up her home first and move out of the desert and the forest?”

“In the Bible, God gave man dominion over the animals. That means we’re to be their caretakers, not their executioners when we go where they were first or because they are inconvenient.”

“To the people at the Vent, I am discriminated against. For the last two weeks, I have called four times to have something put in the Vent section. Do I get to see it? No. Maybe us seniors don’t know what we are talking about.”

“I can’t believe you printed six vents (Wednesday) about your TV guide. I didn’t even know you had one.”

“I’m going to compare the Tribune’s new format to US Airways. No matter what you do to improve the quality of the product you are putting out there, they are going to get the complaints. It’s just too bad US Airways always seems to make your paper on these complaints.”

“As I stand again in line at Fry’s understaffed stores to ring up my own groceries, I can’t help (but to) wonder why are they not giving me a discount for this?”

“An open vent to the Phoenix Mercury: Go Mercury, win the WNBA title. And when you win, I hope you get treated with more respect than the Rattlers did when they won the Arena Bowl. I hope you get a parade and a rally and everything.”
