Rants & Raves

JUST HOW MANY GOOD people have to resign over this renaming before it’s reconsidered?


I AM BLACK. I DID NOT vote for Richard Roundtree. He can’t control his own taxes. How is he going to control a $50 million budget for Richmond County? You voted for him just because he is black. He is not the best man for the job.

ADD AN APOSTROPHE to Regents ... Georgia Regent’s University. It is clear it is their (belonging to Regents) school, not the citizens, students or faculty.

READING YOUR EDITORIAL page, one would think that you want the new university to be named The University of the Masters Tournament.

I THINK INVITING Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore to be the women to become members of the Augusta National golf Club is an insult and a slap in the face to the women of Augusta. You have women of both races who are just as important, educated and recognized. The Masters is in Augusta and that is where the selection should have started.

RICHARD ROUNDTREE, if you are elected in November, will you do your job with the same integrity and results-driven zeal as your predecessor? Arrest and hiring practices without thoughts of the color of someone’s skin? If you win, good luck to you and please keep our city safe.

RAVE TO JUDGE Scott Allen. You are a great judge and a fair judge and you have a great sense of humor. Thank you for giving me a second chance. Fair skies now and all is good. God bless you. Have a good one.

IF THE BOARD OF REGENTS is so smart, why did they have to pay more than $40,000 to get a name changed? That money could have saved jobs or been given to the children’s hospital or other needy places. What a waste.

TO ALL THE ATHEISTS out there: Why are you so concerned about our Christian belief in Jesus Christ? We are not interested in your unbelief. Back off and leave us alone. We believe in Jesus Christ and one day when it is too late, you will believe too.

RANT FOR THE Republican Party. If the best we can do is Allen and Anderson to run against Barrow, I’m embarrassed to tell people I’m a Republican.
