Dear Editor:

I read with amazement in the Ahwatukee Foothills News about James Hays' new law banning door-to-door solicitors except for politicians and religion ("Restrictions on door-to-door salesmen exempt religious, political activists," Feb. 2).

I got a great idea for Hays; let's pass a law that allows door-to-door solicitors except religion and politics. I'm sick of people knocking on my door asking me if I've "heard the good news." If I wanted to be part of your religion I'd visit your church.

The next time someone wants to tell you how you should live your life, tell them that you need to go get a pencil and paper. Then come back to the door and ask them for their home address. When they hesitate about giving someone they don't know their home address, just explain to them it's OK, you just want to drop by with some witches from the coven and talk about all the positive aspects of satanic rituals.

If that doesn't work, tell them that you would be happy to attend their church on Sunday if they would come visit your church first. Chances are their religion prohibits them from going to another church.

The only door-to-door sales people that really annoy me are the magazine sales people. Most of the people knocking on my door are from the local high school raising money for their athletic team to go to some event, and I'm fine with that. Our schools don't have money for athletics any more because they spend it all passing and enforcing stupid laws.

I was also amazed to read that Hays' wants me to call 911 when the Girl Scout down the street wants to sell me some Thin Mints. Really, call 911?
