Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:



RAVE FOR THE young man who gave my wife his place in the doctor’s office. My daughter was really sick, and he gave her his spot. I don’t know who he is, but God does. Thank you so much.


THE GARBAGE SITUATION is a continuing problem, but it is not going to get better with commissioners like Marion Williams, who defends people’s misuse of it. Everybody needs to recycle. Inner-city residents should not be exempt from decent practices just because they are inner city.


REGARDING THE baseball stadium in Project Jack­son’s plans, please report on how it will be financed without raising taxes in North Augusta or Aiken County. A referendum seems in order.


OF THE 532 MURDERS that took place in Chicago last year, many were children. Why aren’t people up in arms about the killing of children there? I don’t see any of our leaders addressing this issue. Maybe there are not enough political gains to get involved. Remember the killing of a child is a tragedy no matter where it occurred!


I JUST READ in your newspaper that some women are “swooning” over Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the Boston bombers. What a sick society we live in.


CAN ANYONE HONESTLY say Iraq is a safe place now that we left? Daily one reads in the paper of deadly attacks. The morning’s paper listed 38 dead across Iraq. What did all our troops die for since we did not solve anything? Of course our leaders have to say that the operation was a success.


A BENEFIT GOLF tournament for the Boys & Girls Club is going to apply for a temporary alcohol permit?


I HAD A REVISION on my knee replacement, and from the surgeon to the anesthesiologist to all operating nurses and doctors, to the ninth floor on Eisenhower, a super bravo. My care was great. Thank you.


IF THE CASE BETWEEN Zimmerman and Martin had been turned around and Martin had killed Zimmerman, there would be no demonstrations and nothing else heard about it.


RAVE FOR CHANNEL 12. They did a story on the deplorable conditions at Irvin Towers where the senior citizens live. It is a shame senior citizens have to come last and live in a place that is not fit.
