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.

People will leave Delta. Some

People will leave Delta. Some of them probably hate their job or are close to retirement. It ain't nuthin to get worked up about. When I was in the Navy they were offering $40,000 to get people to quit. Then the Army gave people a 15 year retirement. Delta can cut 2000 jobs and get the rest thru attrition.

Oooooh my goodness, some of

Oooooh my goodness, some of the amazing brainpower in here... "Hmmm, they could not POSSIBLY offer a deal to more people than they need to have leave. After all, when Ashley furniture offers a sale on couches, 2 for $750, they will go out of business unless every single one of the 200,000 CSRA households buys one. Yep, yep, always assume that 100% of those to whom you offer something will feel obliged to take it. Yep, yep...mama always said, 'Life is like a box o' chocolates,' yep..."

You and John Smith are two of a kind. Heartless smart wannabees. You think you know everything and you don't know crap. You don't stop to smell the roses.

I'm somewhat a newbie here,

I'm somewhat a newbie here, but someone who is a regular contributer to this stew mill has often told me to look out for johnsmith. I've been throughly appreciating his sardonic evaluations and inputs on various subjects. I love tongue in cheek humor, especially when there's a worthwhile message included. Glad to read/meet you johnsmith.

Well I don't care for you

Well I don't care for you either. First impressions are not always right, I have found, but you stick with John Smith and he can teach you a lot. In no time you will be bashing people right and left, and making others believe you know everything and anyone who does not agree with you is an idiot.

One thing about me. You can

One thing about me. You can disagree with me all you want, and it does not bother me. But start the bashing and bullying because I disagree, and I can dish it right back.

I didn't say that I did not

I didn't say that I did not care for you Rose, I just said that you didn't 'impress' me. I'm sorry that you have decided that you don't like me. Somehow, I'll have to learn to live with it. *sigh*
