Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

TO THE RANTER who said Augusta could use better customer service in its restaurants: Augusta could also use better customers in its restaurants.

TO SGT. LAFFERMAN at the Richmond County jail: Keep up the good work, and you will be rewarded in the long run.

TO THE PERSON who ranted about Hillary Clinton not controlling her husband: I don't recall anywhere in marriage vows that you're supposed to control your husband. It's not my job to control my husband. It's not her job to control hers.

I ENJOY THE ASK AMY column. Sometimes I read what she says. Sometimes I don't. If you don't like it, don't read it.

RANT TO THE PERSON who suggested that smokers eat a pack of cigarettes. I think that would kill you. Filters can't be digested.

WHEN BILL CLINTON was president, he assigned the medical care program to Hillary. She couldn't fix it then. What's changed?

A HUGE RAVE for Erick Montgomery and Historic Augusta. Their hard work toward preserving historical sites is admirable and greatly appreciated.

RANT TO THE CHRONICLE. You need to change your name to The Augusta Gazette . You've done away with the business section and the stock listings and put the important news in the back section. This is more like a gazette than a newspaper.

I BELIEVE Colin Powell. He was given false information about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Should a Democrat running for president choose Mr. Powell as a running mate, that person would have my vote in November.
