Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:



MAYBE I WOULD HAVE enjoyed Masters Week more if it wasn’t for the obnoxious Yankees who invade our town and crowd us locals out of our favorite restaurants.


I WOULD LIKE TO SAY thank you to the gentleman that paid my family’s tab at The Chop House on March 14. We were celebrating my birthday and your unexpected generosity made my night!


FOR AS LONG AS the Azziz empire exists, for as long as there is a school in Augusta with Regents in the name, I will boycott Augusta-Richmond County.


WITH ALL THE DRUG activity you see in Augusta I wonder why a K9 unit isn’t used more often? As many roadblocks as I’ve been through lately, I haven’t seen a one.


RANTS TO THE PEOPLE who tie out their dogs, especially when they give them no shelter from the rain or sun.


RANT TO PEOPLE WHO believe pit bulls are evil. It is all about how they are raised! Just in my family we have a total of 11 pit bulls. Have never had any issues whatsoever! Pit bulls are a part of this nation’s history! Punish the deed, not the breed!


PRETTY FUNNY The Chronicle is surprised by S.C. support for Mark Sanford. S.C. voted for Newt Gingrich in the presidential primary. Newt cheats on wives, changes wives, changes religions based on constituency, had his famous failed “contract with America. Sanford is an amateur compared to Newt.


IF YOU HAVE TO get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.


WHOEVER COMPLAINED about the Blythe mayor and council does not really know what has been accomplished since the new mayor has been in office. Most people know that crossing guards are the responsibility of the school board. Besides, the kids ride buses! And sidewalks would cost half a milllion bucks – want your taxes raised to do that??


QUITE FRANKLY, I am sick and tired of seeing police officers ride around Harlem, and not in fact interacting with the community. This is one of many reasons why I am leaving this unfair city after 17 years. Goodbye, and good riddance!
