In Your Own Words: McCain, Star Wars and Latitude Eight Thai Grill

Tomorrow another issue of your favorite alternative weekly will hit the stands and the Web. Take this opportunity to pick Phoenix's collective brain on last week's stories.

On: Postmodern John McCain: the presidential candidate some Arizonans know — and loathe

"Whatever happened to real journalism? Where you remove all the personal emotions and stick to the facts? Where are the footnotes that support your "facts"? Everything you say may be true, but your creditiblity is lost because you choose to give your "spin" instead of sticking to real facts. I hope that one day this country returns to real journalism instead of blogs like this." - Todd

"What a terrific piece of writing and journalism. You're bucking the well-crafted maverick myth and that cannot make you a popular person with the GOP. This is a must read for anyone who thinks all presidential candidates are alike." - B.J.

On: Sheriff's Office Confirms Profiling Investigation On Deputy

"I hope Justice will prevail for Jessica Rodriquez and others. As for Jesus Cosme, well this is what happens when you're a minority working for a biased, KKKorupted, racist mean ol` Sheriff. And if you do something wrong, you're gonna be investigated while there is a double standard base for his White deputies." - D.J. Racist Ryke

"I also think that Sheriff Arpaio would rather eat nails than hand an employee of Mayor Gordon the makings of a propaganda victory." - Emil Pulsifer

On: Newcomer Latitude Eight Thai Grill scores points with tom kha and garlic prawns

"Sounds wonderful, good to see good Asian coming to the valley. When I started college here there was hardly anything. Now we have Vietnamese, Thai, even a half decent Indian joint. Bring on more!!!" - Angela06

On: Star Wars invades Tempe Harkins Cinema Capri

"Great to see these guys putting smiles on people's faces, in yet another capacity! I think I'll quit my local Freemasons, this sounds way more fun." - Evan Tozier
