Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:


I WISH TO THANK the doctors and all the staff at the ER at Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center for the care and consideration they showed to my wife. They were very professional and caring to her. I appreciate everything they did.

A BIG THANK YOU to Gen. Jeff Foley and the staff at ASU for placing flags on the graves of the veterans buried on the campus. We too often
forget about these men and what they did for
our country a long time ago. Thanks and please don’t forget them in the future.

RANT FOR Mr. Ballas at Luigi’s, blaming business down 10 percent in a decade due to strip club, etc. Those have been
in his block for a long time.

IF JUSTIN BIEBER did rough up a photographer, it must have been a wimpy photographer.

OUR FAMILY WAS extremely disappointed in the Banjo-B-Que this year. The location in Evans Towne Center Park was great, but over half of the bands didn’t even play bluegrass music. If it’s not going to be a bluegrass festival with barbecue and a petting zoo (which was advertised both on radio and Web site) don’t advertise it as such.

TO THE MOTORISTS who thought it was important to involve the authorities about what you thought was an inappropriate sign. Grow up; it was an advertising logo, and the dancer was hired to hold the sign.

AN ADULT DRIVER not buckled up is not against the law. If you give me a ticket for not wearing a seat belt, we will go State Court and I will win because that is not a law and it is not endangering anybody. You can’t prove it saves lives. I think it is denial of rights and just a way for Richmond County to make more money and scare people to death.

“IT IS TRUE that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time” (Abe Lincoln). Though apparently, Obama can fool all the Democrats all the time.

CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN how it is “evolution” when a person running for election goes from supporting, then opposing and then supporting gay marriage in a mere four years, whilst it is “flip-flopping” if one keeps the same opinion supporting civil unions and opposing gay marriage since 1994?
