Rants & Raves

Bruce Jones sent in this shot he took out of an airplane just before landing in Newark, NJ. What you see sticking out above the clouds is the Freedom Tower and Empire State Building across the river in NYC. If you have a photo you want to post here. Send me an email. Have a good week everybody, let me know if you need anything. sean.moores@augustachronicle.com - Sean

THIS IS A RANT to the person who messed with my motorcycle at Logan’s on MLK Day. Didn’t anyone ever teach you to never mess with another man’s bike? I promise I didn’t do anything to the truck that you couldn’t park without messing with my property. Especially since it looks like you dropped or tipped it.


I’VE NEVER KNOWN a man whose waking hours seem to be consumed with another man’s “hard drive”. Would someone please let Marion Williams have a peek at Fred’s so that we can move on?


RAVE FOR THE policeman that lost his job for hitting the kid who ran. I am on your side. You can go out any night and see young kids roaming the streets late. Irresponsible parents let their kids loose with no guidance. Somebody sometime will have to deal with them. It is insanity to take the job of a working person just because you don’t discipline your own kids. Give the policeman his job back


WOW! BILL KIRBY’S bio on George P. Burdell is his best work!! Funny, informative, and perfectly served with a taste of corporate self-deprecation. Makes me glad to be a subscriber.


RANT FOR THE CITY of Augusta. Give the policeman his job back. He gets the blame for irresponsible parents letting the unruly kids roam the streets late at night. Why wasn’t a 15 year old at home being watched by his parents? Insanity


I DROVE BY SO much trash and litter on the John C. Calhoun Expressway today. Many of our out of town visitors for the Futurity also use this road. With all the city employees, why doesn’t Augusta have a cleanup detail for events like the Futurity, other than the Masters? It’s not the only game in town!


I WAS IN GRANITEVILLE the other day and got behind a pickup with a decal on his rear window that said “OBAMA- YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!” BEST ONE I’VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME!! YOU GO, DUDE!


A HUGE RANT TO Marion Williams. “People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.” I don’t know what you are looking for in another’s files but it is public knowledge that YOU are reluctant to pay your own taxes. Meanwhile, many have seen you waste multiple thousands of dollars on racing cars at the drag strip. I bet some people would like to see YOUR files.


WE HAVE GONE from “I have a dream” to “I have a scheme.”
