Opinions: Reader responses are anything and everything but predictable

WADE: "Interesting article, kumquat."

Picture this: You've written a column advocating the abolition of Presidents' Day and the return to celebrating Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays and one favorable response refers to a small, orange-like fruit.

Reader responses to columns can sometimes be a little different.

Usually reader replies are article-specific, but many responses are a general expression of support or opposition. One Facebook message informed me, "I like your columns. Keep it up. Stick it to the man!"

"You shouldn't nanny that stone so. One day she must spread her wings and fly."

I draw in my breath, sharply. Can it be? There, framed in the doorway of my spacious desert home, stands a veritable NBA superstar. His jaw is set and his eyes twinkle with a ferocious sparkle. "For what reason," his resonant voice intones, "do you wear the skin of that ungulate?"

Spilled coffee from early morning e-mail checking. Some strange green stain. Cookie crumbs in the cracks. The "T" button that is still sticking from the Red Bull flood of December 2006. Sound familiar?

Local Limelight: Outside the Music Box
Juggling band practice, booking shows, recording, promoting, studying at ASU and being a working stiff isn't easy. Just ask the guys in Inward from Outside, a Tempe-based, pop-punk outfit featuring three ASU undergrads.

Hot Spot: Unlike your texts, books you'll want to read
This small, mysterious store is anything but your typical used-book shop. Old Town Books carries out-of-print tomes on interesting subjects, such as crime books and old magazines you couldn't find at Borders.
