WHEN SONNY PERDUE made his Sonny Do list, he did not include the following: Pack bags for an early departure in January.

ANN COULTER AND some of those other women need to do something about their hair. She's a lot too old for that hairdo, hanging down like that. She's witchy enough as it is. I don't know what people think the style is, but that's not the style.

I SEE THAT ADP IS coming to Augusta, but its temporary offices are close to the Columbia County line. Let's make sure that ADP knows that there are places in south Augusta or east Augusta where it could put its permanent operation because the land is cheap.

THIS IS A RANT for the people who have gave the Dixie Chicks so much trouble and NBC for not promoting their ad because they said they don't like the president. Last time I checked, in the United States you could air an opinion. If you don't like the president, you don't like the president. I don't like the president.

RANT FOR INTOLERANT anti-Buddhists. Think you know everything about God? Look up Osiris, Isis, Set, Amen, Ptah, Atem and see where Moses got his ideas about the tree of life, snake and Creation.

HELEN, WHAT WERE you thinking? Running against Quincy! The man has done a great job. Helen, please don't allow anyone to push you up a tree you can't climb. Wait for your time.

WHEN YOU GO into the voting booth in November, ask yourself one question: Who do the terrorists want to see win?

TO THE PERSON who equated home-schooling with child abuse - you need a dose of reality. A truly lazy parent is one who daily puts a child on a school bus to a failing school system, never gets involved and does not follow up on the child's progress. Too many children endure this sort of abuse and never get an education of any type. Home-schoolers on the other hand are routinely ahead in grade level and outperform their peers scholastically. Home schooling is hard work, but it provides a lifetime of rewards.

THIS IS A RANT for all you people buying into the Republican/Democrat election frenzy. Remember the old saying, divide and conquer? While you bicker back and forth, our constitutional rights are flying out the window. It's time to unite and take our government back from the corporate lackeys who now occupy the seats in government.

IN LES WILKINSON'S radio ads, he claims that he is funding his own race and he is beholden to no one, yet on his disclosure he reflects a $2,000 donation from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. I don't recall that group being a collection of conservatives from Richmond, Burke or Columbia County.

I SEND A BIG RAVE to the area movie theaters for showing a great family movie, Facing the Giants. It's about time we are able to see a good movie without holding our ears.

RANT TO THE PERSON who advised others not to wish a blessed day to just anyone simply because the recipient might be an atheist or a criminal. Are you insane, and who are you to decide? Finally, a rant for the remark on Jose calling your home. Would you do his job at minimum wage and live in those conditions. Ignorance is very big in the South.

WHY WAS RICKY Lumpkin arrested? Firefighters, church supporters, school car wash supporters and newspaper sellers do the same thing he was doing. He was not even charging; he was offering free information. Even if he was passing out information to support the SPLOST, I do not see where this is illegal. People dodge to and fro while selling goods or begging for money all the time. Why is this different?

JUST HOW SMART DOES a person have to be to vote for a candidate just because he or she is of the same race?

THIS IS A RANT for the person complaining about the party at Sego Middle School. If you don't want to hear the noise of children playing, then move away from the school. You knew there was a school nearby when you moved there.
