Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

RANT TO THE DOG PARK proposal. Something to think about: The Southeast is the parasite capital of our country, due to our weather. Parents, do not take your children there! Wear shoes!

RAVES TO CIVIC-MINDED people like Sgt. Rountree, Judge Sams and Mr. Sammie Sias, who are willing to work to improve our area by solving our crime problem.

MY RANT? There aren't enough Rants or Raves that make me chuckle as I eat my Cheerios.

A RANT FOR National Hills Shopping Center, where I see hundreds of gallons of water running down the parking lot every morning from watering their grass. Bad corporate citizen.

DOES IT REALLY MATTER how The Augusta Chronicle is laid out? If you do not like it, do not read it. If you do like it, good for you. But for crying out loud, stop talking about it.

THIS IS A BIG RANT for all you idiots who acted like a rioting mob, pushing and shoving people out of line while the Harlem Globetrotters were signing autographed basketballs. Some things never change.

LAST WEEK, I FLEW out of the newly renovated Augusta Regional Airport. The building was beautiful. The security and ticket agents were extremely friendly and helpful. There were no lines, and the flight to Atlanta was 15 minutes early. The entire experience was so pleasant, such a contrast to the chaos at the Atlanta airport.

IT'S TOO BAD that more of the James Brown monies will have to go towards legal fees, what with the ridiculous filing by Tomi Rae for DNA tests for the adult kids listed in the will.

THANKS TO THE LADY at Wal-Mart on Deans Bridge Road for returning my purse to the pharmacy. I had my blood pressure checked, and I forgot it there and didn't know it until I got to the checkout and I went back and she had turned it in there in the pharmacy. ... May God bless her.

A BIG RAVE for the person that found my papers that I lost at Fort Gordon for vehicle identification. I thank him very much. I also have a rave for Mr. Turney, who works there and issues these vehicle ID numbers. I thank all of them. They have done a fine job.

HYPO- why are you so

HYPO- why are you so defensive all the time? i don't think your comments are very "christian like" (as you would put it). i do think however that you condemn anyone who does not think like you and have your point of view. therefor, is the reason you are so defensive. it's like you're trying to instigate, just so you run your mouth and down people for their point of view. everyone is entitled to their opinion. quit trying to convince everyone that yours is the one and only.

thanks dani, i wrote several

thanks dani, i wrote several posts on the oil article on the opinion page.i don't have problems with people making a good life for themselves, i just shudder at those who do and could care less if anyone else makes it or not.we're all in this thing together.as fritz hollings once proclaimed we don't need to keep cutting the pie slices thinner and thinner for the poor what we need is more pies.we have plenty in this country,why can't we share more? we cannot all be as republicans think,business owners,inventors,or entreprenuers in general someone has to be the workers and laborers.sure we have a segment that refuses to contribute anything to the pot,but if you throw them in the streets they will only get worse.if people on here would read what i say instead of just attacking me personally,they'll find im just like you are.

The 4 month old girl murdered

The 4 month old girl murdered in N.A died from massive head injuries. There is no punishment that would be too harsh for a mother who would do this (or let it be done) to her child. Poor baby...

Must we bring the bible into

Must we bring the bible into this christian. I have a deep love of God, and a personal relationship with him. HOWEVER, I don't believe in organized religion, as too many folks shove stuff down your thoat. Christians are THE MOST intolerant. They judge everything and everybody. Christ was not like that. He loved everyone. The bible, I don't understand too, like it was OK to have LOTS OF WIVES back then, but now it is not, too many contradictions. I keep Baptist, Methodist, so on and so on out of my relationship with God.

Now let me get this straight.

Now let me get this straight. Delta is asking for 30,000 emplyees to take pay and leave. What does that mean? It means that over half their employees are not going to be working for Delta. When companies get rid of employees, they ask for volunteers first. Dang some of you are dense today.

Yep another hussy murdered her child. I told you children are disposable. I tell you right now, nobody better not say one word to me defending that thing of a monster. I hate people who murder kids.

Rose, they offer it to 30,000

Rose, they offer it to 30,000 in hopes that the 2,000 will accpet the deal so they don't have to come out and fire people. Why would they cut half their work force when they only are trying to reduce by 5%?

Now you say I am it is 2000. We will just have to wait and see. I read that as saying they are offering 30000 workers a deal to leave.

"Executives at Atlanta-based Delta said in a memo to employees that the airline's goal is to cut 2,000 frontline, administrative and management jobs through the voluntary program, " this is the part you are missing.

Maybe Delta is trying to pressure Northwest Airlines to complete a deal with them. If you can't believe the story then ask Delta.
