Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

I WOULD LIKE TO GET in contact with Ben Harbin's lawyer or Ben Harbin himself on this DUI charge, and I'd like to know how he was able to escape the charges. As a person who's been convicted of DUI, maybe I'm owed some money back.

I JUST WANT TO THANK the two young ladies that shared their umbrella with my friend and me as we voted at the Municipal Building last week, and a special thank you to the nice lady who gave me her jacket when I didn't have one and didn't ask for it back. Thank you; there are still good people in this world.

PLEASE. WE NEED sidewalks on Aumond Road. All of the neighbors are saying we need them.

THERE IS NO OTHER country I know of in this world that would allow its president to be as run down and criticized as President Bush. With all the tornadoes, floods, storms, and World Trade Center bombings, President Bush has kept us safe. You'll really miss him when he's gone.

TODAY'S RAVES ARE for all the employees of the University Hospital system. Many thanks!

THANK YOU, BEN HARBIN. You have proved once again that the good old boy system is alive and well.

A RAVE FOR THE beautiful dogs at Columbia County Animal Control. I have two beautiful shih tzus I adopted there and I love them dearly. A rant for the people that don't go there and claim their dogs.

THIS IS A RANT for the North Augusta city government and mayor. With the economy so bad, why do North Augusta city department heads and others get a nice car to drive back and forth to work, lunch, and errands in?

THIS IS FROM A cancer survivor of another cancer besides breast cancer. If you want your problem cancer to have more attention then go out and do something about it. All cancer is bad.

RANT TO THE Democrats complaining about Sarah Palin's wardrobe. If you didn't contribute to the Republican campaign, then shut up. I contributed, and I want her to keep the clothes.
