“Say goodbye to the best of old downtown Tempe. It’s fast becoming just another California-style conglomeration of greed, gluttony and phony glamour.”

“I was reading about the (former Mesa) cop dating the prostitute. So what? I would rather have 1,000 prostitutes out there than one child molester or rapist running around.”

-

“If most the buildings in downtown Mesa are too expensive to renovate, why not build a town lake using eminent domain, and we can call it ‘Mesa Arts Center Town Lake.’ ”

-

“Our pastor of a Southern Baptist church has insisted all of this time that Bill Crotts, who was found guilty of the BFA demise, was a good man. What does that tell you?”

-

“The article on law enforcement speeding (Tribune, Sunday) was sensationalism at its best. The first time you or one of your family members are in an accident, you’ll wonder why the police took so long.”

-

“The roads are in great condition. The cars are equipped. The drivers are trained and their employees are liable. I’m quite content to allow police to decide for themselves what speed is reasonable and prudent.”

-

“Try to stop the police from speeding on the freeway? I’d be happy if they would use their turn signals.”

-

“I’m a police officer responding to the Venter (Monday) about the police officer with a gun visible on his holster. I wonder if she got nervous, too, when she saw the butcher knife behind the counter the guy uses to cut the strawberries.”

-

“Please get this straight. Israel is not attacking Lebanese civilians. They are attacking Hezbollah who hides among civilians as they indiscriminately fire rockets into Israel hoping to kill anyone.”

-

“Israel is denying the use of phosphorus chemicals in the Lebanon and I know for a fact they are being used. My family is there and you wouldn’t believe the horror it causes.”

-

“You do know the real terrorists are in D.C., don’t you?”

-

“This is to the Venter (Monday) who thinks the boycott of Ford is causing its financial trouble. (They) are also protesting Disney because of its gay policies. But Disney’s little film, ‘Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,’ has made a little bit over $320 million. So much for (that) protest.”

-

“I guess it’s time to buy a Ford. They are the only one who stands up for what’s right in this country. I’ve been a GM owner for 51 years.”

-

“Thanks, Tiger Woods, for sharing your strength in tears for your beloved father. This sorry world could use more expressions like that.”

-

“If ever a group deserved to percolate in the hot weather, it’s the California crowd. They vote against building power plants year after year after year.”

-

“As for Minnesota winters, you can always put more clothes on. But you can only get so naked.”
