Rants & Raves

GENTLEMEN: You should know that I have never in my 80-year lifetime written to a newspaper to protest something. I feel that the time has come for me to change that. Perhaps Mr. Azziz should offer to repay our citizens the $45,000 he stole from us for a survey, the results of which he not only ignored but also failed to share with the Board of Regents.


WHAT’S IN A NAME? Everything! He should be ashamed.

NIX THE GRU name and let us give credit where credit is due: Ricky’s Ed U Mart.

I AGREE WITH Publish­er Morris about this terrible name for Augusta State and GHSU. The Board of Regents is not listening to the people. Our voices have not been heard by the Board of Regents!

AZZIZ BELIEVES Augus­ta is “not cool.” So his opinion of Georgia can’t be far behind. He wants to preside over a global university.

I THINK AZZIZ brought earplugs for all administration when he came, or either had a hypnotist come in. When concerns are voiced, everyone just shakes their heads, but no one is doing anything about it!

DR. AZZIZ, you continue to insult the people of Augusta by stating that the GRU name is final and there is no time to reconsider. Augustans, take your passion directly to the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents.

HOW COULD ANYONE be surprised at the pompousness of Azziz over the GHSU-ASU naming controversy?

HEY, WHO IS THE individual who first dragged Azziz into the Augusta area and gave him a job and forced him on the people? Somebody is guilty and should be named.

AZZIZ SAYS getting used to the latest renaming of MCG “will be a 10- to 20-year process …” This is the standard operating procedure of both Azziz and Obama. Say something absurd and then claim the absurdity will work out great, but it’ll take decades.

RANT FOR THE ASU/MCG name change. Dr. Azziz should have revealed his true first choice – Science College of Re­gents Unified Uni­versity, otherwise none as SCRU-U. Now that’s cool! Azziz has to go!
