RUSHING TEA ROOM
I don’t remember the last time OC Weekly made any positive comments related to the tea party [R. Scott Moxley’s “Tea Time!” May 28]. They need to be more objective in the way they present their information (even the title of the article seems biased). It’s the tea party and libertarians who truly seek to put a stop to these endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. What Barack Obama is doing is no different from what George W. Bush did. The unconstitutional Patriot Act, Gitmo, the so-called war on drugs are all still running with no end in sight. As long as we elect established party members, our government will continue to strip away our liberties—while media outlets such as OC Weekly attack the very groups who are trying to prevent them.

That’s just great. The latest photos of Bill Hunt’s clients shows gangsters posing with their weaponry, and this idiot goes out and poses with his retirement badge in an egomaniacal photo. Just the example we need for OC sheriff. Grow up, Bill, and stop with the ridiculous poses.

You can always tell who to vote for by the attack ads. Bill Hunt is the one who believes in the Constitution and our individual rights as human beings and Americans and the rule of law. This terrifies the mainstream political parties and the media. This is exactly why the public doesn’t trust the government or the mainstream media any longer. Hunt has my vote.

This is a great and inspiring, though tragic, article [Gustavo Arellano’s “A DREAM Undeterred,” May 28]. We need more stories like this to open our nation’s eyes to the complexity of the immigration issue in this country —and the real lives affected by some of the insensitive responses, both from the government and, sadly, some Americans who don’t fully understand the problem.

Great article, Gustavo! I was one of Tam Tran’s Santa Ana College professors and spoke at the UCLA memorial, at Tam’s funeral in Anaheim and at the Santa Ana College memorial. I am so appreciative of your voice being part of the chorus calling for justice in the treatment of our undocumented students. Tam was like a surrogate daughter to me; the hope of DREAM Act passage is just about the only thing that helps me deal with the pain of her tragic, senseless death.

I so badly want to try this place [Harry’s Deli] and have had it on my radar for about a month [Edwin Goei’s “A Cult Above,” May 28]. I only haven’t yet because I fear a wait. Have to go try that Chicken Di Giorgio though!

It is so nice to see someone who loves their job so much!

COLD AS FRO-YO
How sad [Hey, You! “No Frozen Yogurt? That’s Cold,” May 28]. What a bitch to do that. I feel bad for you. I have been in your exact position, and it is not fun. Just keep your chin up; it will get better.
Sherie, Irvine, via ocweekly.com
This is quite a bizarre story twist. Your house is foreclosed, yet you used money someone loaned you to buy frozen yogurt? How did this happen in the first place? Is it the economy? Did you lose your job?
Additionally, the person who took your money will suffer, as I believe in karma.
