UNTIL THE CITY government is willing to make Riverwalk Augusta as safe and profitable as Savannah’s, I suggest that everyone avoid the area. How many more people need to be assaulted?
THAT DRAGON BOAT Festival was a great event! I sure hope they have it next year. I liked being able to buy real Asian foods, too.
LIBRARIES WILL live on! As for empty shelves, I know how a lot of books get damaged over time to the point where their conditions means they need to be withdrawn. As for library need, it’s for nappers not to take space at the tables for students. The library guard should shoo them on their way after an hour or so.
EXACTLY HOW MANY valuable staff members will the library lose before the library board wakes up this time? Six down and how many more will go?
I HAVE LIVED IN National Hills since I got out of the Army (1968). When are these lazy people going to get off of their butts and clean up their front yard, instead of sitting watching TV and waiting on their welfare checks at the mailbox? Hey, National Hills Association: Why am I contributing yearly?
IT’S BAD ENOUGH paying a high-priced attorney to represent the Boston terrorist, but do we have to add another one so that she can fight against the death penalty? The terrorist is guilty, so let’s have a quick trial and give him what he deserves.
THE DEPARTMENT of Veterans Affairs is withholding bonuses for senior officials who oversee disability claims, citing a failure to meet performance goals for reducing a backlog in claims processing. Maybe some of them should have been fired, too. By the way, the senior executives were paid a total of $2.8 million in 2011.
PRESIDENT OBAMA complained that American guns were responsible for much of the mayhem in Mexico. This is funny since Obama’s own Justice Department sent more than 2,000 guns into Mexico during Fast and Furious, and those weapons were responsible for more than 300 killings.
I JUST READ THE article about the malice murder acquittal. Did anyone ever see the gun license that these two men should possess to have a gun? Based on law, without possessing a gun license, there should not be any gun violence.
