You Said It, Aug. 12, 2012

The TV coverage at the Olympics suggests that medal winning is dependent upon having a solo mom in the stands cheering on one’s athlete. So, I told my Rio-aspiring daughters that, to ensure their success, I’ll be leaving the household all together. Maybe Steve Beauregard will join me in this new movement.

I don’t know what scares me more, a heavily armed man who has carefully planned an attack at a movie theater, temple or grocery store, or some guy in the crowd who’s going to “defend himself” and his only qualification to use a gun is a concealed weapons carry class.


Mr. Wright, you are Mr. Wrong. Do the right, logical and moral thing and resign from running for state office. Your record proves your dishonesty and we have enough of that right now with our politicians.


I find it very interesting to watch a group of scientists excited over their accomplishment of landing Curiosity on Mars. It reminds me of watching Neil Armstrong land on the moon in 1969 and seeing grown men cry.

In contrast, watch the fundamental political ideologues who will only accept input that supports their belief. It the best example I have seen of showing the difference between thinking and believing. Were you taught to think or were you taught to believe?


We spend all this money to investigate Mars. What good is the information? I guess it was great entertainment for a few Star Trek fans.


Regarding the Sentinel calling the homeless vagrants: Wow, really? How about building a few concentration camps, although we would still need to feed them. Jesus could also have been called a vagrant. How about more compassion?


Many thanks to the anonymous donor who bought meals for customers at Chick-fil-A in Grand Junction on Aug. 3. It was such a generous gift of support.


Way to go to the thugs supporting Chick-fil-A handing out coupons at Walmart. Does the Bible really say to harass thy neighbor when they do not share your hatred of homosexuals? I must have missed that chapter.


OK, I like animals as much as the next person, but humans are more important.


To the person in a black truck who scavenged the gold-and-brown bike from Rana Road. It wasn’t trash. It is the only form of transportation for a working young person who didn’t have money for a lock. If you read this, will you please put it back where you found it?


To the person who captured our shepherd/lab dog on the Redlands: Thanks for your kindness in keeping him safe. He was running from the thunder. He made it home safely.
