The soccer tournament and Multifest didn’t bring millions of dollars into the valley. The tournament brought in millions, Multifest recirculated local money already here.

Mayor Amy joined the fun at the West Side street fair on Saturday and let herself be dunked. What a breath of fresh air she is.

It is comforting to know that our Commander-in-Chief is so knowledgeable about our military. Who knew George Washington secured the Airports around Washington D.C., or that the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 happened during the same time period.

Let’s do this. ... Let’s begin paying male soccer players what the women make and the women what the men make. Then let’s tell the men to keep quiet and not be “political.” We’ll see how fast the laws are changed. And why stop with soccer, let’s do this for every job.
