"I'm at a Place Called Vertigo"
"Slow down, St. Louis. The U2 show last night was really, really good. Having said that, though less concert production, the music portion of the Joshua Tree concert at Checkerdome was better. And, the best St. Louis concert ever? The Beatles at Busch Stadium. How soon they're forgotten. (I bet U2 hasn't!) Three important points: Bono flubbed the lyrics to 'Pride' (In the Name of Love), probably the most important song in the band's history, the one that signaled they're pending dominance, 'Bad,' wasn't played (unacceptable), and the ending impact of the stage certainly didn't warrant six days of setup, X number of trucks and the barrage of coverage from St. Louis media. Very good concert, but let's stop the hyperbole."

"I find it interesting that the only one who would not pick it up is the 12-year-old. Doesn't say much for our youth."

“FREE the chickens—NO to privacy fence! One chicken is lonely, two is a pair, three is a conspiracy and 10 is a FLOCK. Go No. 10! :)”

Can’t Give What You Don’t Have
“I am all for helping the other guy (flood and hurricaine victims, for example), but if you don't have the money to give, you just don't give. All the monies given to foreign countries could be better spend here in the good ole USA. Now we might not get our Social Security checks? That is just plain wrong! That's like going to the bank to cash a check and the bank telling you that John Doe needed it more, so they gave it to him.”

To Reward or Not To Reward
“If Goodwill recognizes the temptation for people to keep this money and realizes what a good employee they have in Ivanna, she should be rewarded. I think that Ianna Drane should be rewarded.”
—JANET BROMEIER, Arnold Patch
“Why do people who do the right thing need to be rewarded? Recognition is suitable enough.”
— Bunny, Arnold Patch
Spend Spend Spend
"The president has run up $4 trillion in debt in two years. Why does it take 12 years to reduce what went up in two?"
— Ted Wright, Hazelwood Patch
"I had to laugh out loud after reading this. All you have to do is look at his voting record, and you know he is a big spender. He doesn't vote on any legislation that will halt illegal immigration. Heck, he spends most of his time in Maryland where he has a home, instead of his apartment in District 1. He knows most of the people in his district do not monitor his voting."
— Bob Emling, Hazelwood Patch
