Letters From OC Weekly Readers
TIME-SUCKS THAT DON’T
I enjoy the “few minute” games but find that those few minutes can turn into more—it is addictive [Megan Brescini’s “Little Games, Big Business,” July 2]! So proud of you, Daniel McNeely, for your creative, innovative and personal side. Continue on!

TODAY, THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT. TOMORROW, IRVINE!
Scott, good article and thanks for getting the facts out there [R. Scott Moxley’s Moxley Confidential, “Sheriff Hutchens’ Stunner,” July 2]. To the “boo birds” with egg on your faces, I won’t say, “I told you so,” because the voters did it for me. Now, if we could just wake up the voters in Irvine to the corruption and mismanagement in their city, some changes could be made. I must admit the slate of so-called conservative candidates is not all that appealing at this time. Come on, Chuck DeVore: Take the leadership in cleaning up your hometown. We need you to knock the Agranistas off their throne.

Ha-ha-hee-hee, Moxley! I laugh my ass off every time I see you’ve pissed off dirty cops! You are the best.

On the one hand, congratulations on your graduation [Hey, You! “Graduation On the Rocks,” July 2]. On the other, I hope you didn’t major in English; if you did, go back and ask for a tuition refund!

My insurance is only a $100 co-pay. Sorry, sh*t happens, and don’t listen to TRacer; we all use spell check.

Were you parked illegally? Did you do something to draw attention to your vehicle? Block someone’s driveway because you are an inconsiderate bastard who thinks rules don’t pertain to you? Or you were drunk and blowing some homeless guy in the backseat because you didn’t have any change to give him?

Gustavo, I read your column all time, but did you have an upset stomach when you wrote that stuff [Gustavo Arellano’s ¡Ask a Mexican! “Special Poetry Edition,” July 2]? Give me a break, UCLA grad; you’re better than that. Why don’t you write about something really funny, like President Barack Obama’s BS speech on immigration? From here until November, maybe you could remind “la raza” to go out and vote. If you don’t vote, you can’t complain when you are ignored.
Marge Kellen, Placentia, via ocweekly.com
Damn—did you have to include George Lopez? I was doing so good.
Richard, Santa Ana, via ocweekly.com
Roses are red, violets are blue, I just phoned ICE, now they’ll deport you! Andale al sur, y gracias para su hermanita.

You didn’t answer a question.
