THUMBS DOWN TO Madonna being the halftime show entertainment. I’m glad when she disappeared in a puff of smoke.


WHY CAN’T SOMETHING be done about River Glen Apartments? Is there anyone listening?


EGYPT IS GOING to put Americans in jail. Americans should stay home and keep their noses out of other people’s business. Whether nonprofit or whatever, other countries don’t think like we do. Stay home. Do-gooders end up dead-gooders.


THE FLAT TAX IS a fair tax. Even drug dealers, users and crooks will pay their tax. They will have no choice; that’s what I like about it.


AUGUSTA IS NOT SAFE. When will something be done about all the criminals on the streets? The commissioners need to fix crime instead of always fighting and bullying one another.


IF YOU WANT my breakfast business, you should give a senior discount. It’s the right thing to do.


IN REGARD TO the bus service being privatized, I see no change in it whatsoever. The only advantage I see in it being privatized is that it keeps the city from having to discontinue service.


SHOTS FIRED, another murder victim. No one saw a thing. Same old thing. It looks like some people just don’t want to help themselves or their neighborhood.


IF PEOPLE ARE renting in Hyde Park, that means they chose to live there. They should not get relocation money.


AFTER LOOKING AT last Saturday’s front-page picture of the shooting at River Glen Apartments, it’s not hard to figure out why there is so much violence at the complex. What an ironic tribute – empty beer and liquor bottles!


STOP BUILDING homes in Columbia County and start building them in south Richmond County. They have lots of nice land and can use more schools and tax base.


IT MAKES SENSE to have occasional controlled fires to burn off excess fuel in the woods at Fort Gordon. That said, why must the government always come up with absurd reasons for doing something? Can they name one truly “endangered” species in those woods? In real war, are the woods where battles are fought always cleaned up before the battle to “make the area accessible”?
