“Barry Bonds is the home run king, and if you don’t like it, I can tell you where to stick the asterisk and it’s not in the baseball records.”

“I keep reading (in) vents and letters to the editor that people are disappointed that the Democrats are just as bad about earmarks as the Republicans were, and it’s true. But I don’t expect it to happen overnight. The Democrats have been in control for only one round … We’ve all got to starting yelling at our congresspeople to change the system.”

“I know the sagging infrastructure of our highways and bridges is not a fun political issue. But when are our politicians going to address that, because this country has lots of bridges that need refurbishing? It wasn’t in the last transportation bill and I can’t imagine why.”

“How many studies does it take for us to know that the media influences our lives? Stop telling us that sex and violence in film and music have no influence on our kids, but a McDonald’s ad makes our kids salivate.”

“I find it amazing that the same people that are crying and complaining about George Bush’s wiretap stuff (Vent, Tuesday) … are the same people who will sit back and allow our Constitution to go to nothing, to nothing, to nothing when it involves gun control.”
