Kudos to Tom Patterson for his commentary on winning in the Middle East (Aug. 24). Needless to say, he’s “spot-on.” I’m sure the “American” majority would be totally supportive. We’re tired of being losers under less-than-adequate leadership. While we’re at it, use some of the tactics to clean up the coffer-depleting human trash who inhabit the communities of our “homeland.” Force is justified when put to use for the right reason(s) — in defense of the Constitution.

Arizona State University. Mill Avenue. Arizona Mills and Tempe Marketplace. These are some of the places and institutions most associated with Tempe today. While ASU and Mill Avenue both have deep roots in our town’s history, there is much more history to this desert city than we see at first glance.
As the home to Arizona State University, Tempe is a vibrant and progressive college town that is always on the move. Located at the center of the Valley and surrounded by five freeways and just minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Tempe is the perfect place to do business or for visitors to enjoy vacations.
Like many middle-class parents, we promised our kids that we would pay for their college education, a reasonable promise in the 1980s from two parents who were teachers. We are still paying off their college loans in 2014, yet we feel lucky compared to students and families who are paying off college loans accrued between 2008 and 2014.
I have been impressed with your coverage of the light rail expansion. It has been interesting to learn that the Sycamore Station by Dobson Road is the busiest in the entire light rail system. The expansion to Mesa Drive will transport 9,700 more passengers a day and will help reduce emissions, cars on the road and traffic congestion. I also learned that new and upcoming stations will be grand and very artistic.

Past generations of Americans defied the odds to achieve the right to participate in the political process — overcoming menacing threats of violence, arrest, and coercion, all to earn the right to vote. As United States citizens, we pride ourselves on living in a country that has become the standard-bearer of democratic values worldwide. But a troubling pattern has taken hold, threatening this distinction for generations to come.

Does anyone really know what happened in Ferguson? I certainly don’t. The media reporting devoid of any investigative journalism has done virtually nothing to clarify things. Regardless of what the alleged unarmed teenager Michael Brown did or didn’t do, he is entitled to a fair trial, not an execution. The arresting officer Darren Wilson is also entitled to his day in court instead of “mob rule” even after emptying his entire magazine into this kid. Although I have no clue as to who is innocent or guilty, I can only conclude the following. First, disproportionate force by the police may have been used to stop Michael Brown. Second, law enforcement is excessively militarized and we live in a police state. The militarization of law enforcement greatly fueled the flames of community outrage. The bureaucrats know this and are using this outrage to justify further militarization. Third, there appears to be little leadership or accountability at any level of government. Watching local politicians and law enforcement pass the buck to county officials, the county to the state, and finally the state to the federal government was absolutely pathetic. What good are these ineffective officials if they can’t do their job and follow the Constitution as we pay them to do? Clearly, you are correct, Gov, Nixon; the whole world is watching you and your fellow public servants. And thus far, all of you are failing miserably.
