Rants and raves

Comments from readers:

WE HAD A GOOD laugh. Someone should tell your writer that "moray" is an eel. The word he wants is "mores."

THIS IS A RANT for all the single parents. Everything in the paper is about single parents. Don't you Southern women have any respect? These men don't care about you. If they did, you wouldn't be a single parent.

I HAVE AN EXCELLENT idea to save the gardens. Why not build lovely, moderately priced homes with a gated community? Let's improve the gardens in a pleasing way as well as the gardens already established.

THIS IS FOR the person talking about the speed humps. They're speed bumps.

THIS RANT IS FOR THE Richmond County police department. How can they break the law but you can't? They tell you that if someone lives with you and they leave with their stuff, and then later want to come back, they have the right to kick down your door. I don't understand it.

YOU MUST BE CRAZY if you think that our economy was stronger and that we had low gas prices and jobs under Jimmy Carter. I remember the long lines at the gas station and the gas was higher back then. Unemployment was in the double digits, and our economy was not strong. We were going through the same stuff that we're going through now. Read your history books people.

IF BEN HARBIN HAD been arrested in Augusta, we would have never heard about it. It would have been covered up if it was local.
