The Arizona judge with no guts removed the guts from the recently passed Arizona immigration law Senate Bill 1070 last week.
The ill-functioning Democratic Party is in the process of spending money like a drunken sailor, and putting us in a financial hole for years to come.
Today's Opinion page (July 26) contained a great juxtaposition between Steve Lunetta's column ("Speak only when you have the facts") and Carole Lutness' letter to the editor decrying the alleged privatization of our local libraries ("Public libraries should stay public").
You know, for what appears to be about a $12-a-month hike per water bill, there is sure a lot of screaming going on. Too bad we don't get that kind of response for other, more vital items like resurfacing and restriping our roads and fixing pot holes.

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines.
