“How can the Tribune print that on the front page (Saturday) with Jeff Groscost being such a tremendous leader when he cost every taxpayer in this state a lot of money?”

“Jeff Groscost was a great leader. He was the fall guy in the alt. fuels fiasco. Here is another case of the media literally destroying a good man’s life.”

“The photo of evangelist Ted Haggard in (Sunday’s) paper strongly resembles another fallen evangelist, Jimmy Swaggart. I wonder if they could be long lost brothers?”

“I applaud evangelicals who are willing to forgive Haggard. Now, take time to examine the obvious: His homosexuality was not a choice, it was by birth genetic. Guess what? God loves us all.”

“At some point, I’m going to just start throwing pennies away.”

“Hey, I escaped from Gary, Ind., 13 years ago and I thought I had turned the lights out. Oh, well.”

“Let’s put the Hamilton Huskies into the Cardinals stadium. Then we will have a winning team.”

“You want to know what’s stupid — ‘Friday Night Lights’ is on Tuesday nights.”

“Voting is every American’s right and obligation. But do yourself a favor. If you don’t know what’s going on in the world, and if you believe everything you hear on the late-night talk shows, stay home. Don’t vote.”

“If no one voted, no one would win. We should try that next time instead of being at each other’s throats.”

“Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to vote I go. To pull the lever for whomever can tell a joke — and not become a joke himself.”

“I’m not voting this time. Who do you trust? To me, they all have done wrong. They all are a bunch of crooks.”

“Our forefathers were sure smart to schedule graduations in the spring of the air and elections in the fall. All of that hot air and inflated rhetoric in the same season would be too much to bear.”

“Vote as if your life depends on it, because it does.”

“Voting 2006, truth or fiction from politicians. Truth or consequences from voters.”

“Truly America is blessed. Only God can make such a system work.”

“Sixteen- and 17-year-olds aren’t old enough to vote. How can they work the polls? Besides, they belong in school.”

“I’m taking my 9-year-old grandson with me (on) Election Day. He has, for the last three years, gone with me to help me fill out my ballot. I want to do my best to see that he grows up to be a voting citizen.”

“Cease thy grievous political rhetoric. Banish from sight thy fliers and mailers. Be still, gentle cell phone. Bring forth gratitude in heaven for 11/7.”

TALKING POINT

“When it comes to vote Tuesday, don’t look to your pastor, your preacher, your bishop, your community leaders. Look to your own higher power, and let them tell you what to do.”
