Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO a rant and rave about Channel 6 news and their acting like idiots. First of all, it's Channel 12 news that cuts up and all, but so what? Start your morning off with a little smile. News is bad enough as it is. All people do is complain about this and that and the other and worrying about what color Bob Smith's shirt is. Give the people credit, and start your day with a smile.

TO THE PERSON complaining about children using road humps for skateboarding: Are you the same type of person that complains that children are indoors too much doing video games? Leave the kids alone!

A RAVE FOR THE LADY who challenged me when I was in Wal-Mart and broke in line. Thank you for doing that; you're absolutely right, and I was dead wrong. I'm sorry.

IN THE PAST TWO WEEKS I've had the pleasure of picking up my granddaughters at two different schools in Aiken County. Both schools' students came out and took down the flag. No respect whatsoever for our flags today. They are not taught the protocol of going out and folding the flag properly.

THIS IS A RAVE for the Augusta Ballet School. I attended the Nutcracker last weekend. How wonderful to have this performance in Augusta!

WE STOPPED at the Meadow Garden historic home on a tour, and we heard an all-accordion band play music that we could relate to and enjoy. We like that very much. Hope Historic Augusta does it again. This is a rave.
