Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers.

A RANT TO THE online readers' comments: Do away with them. That way those that spend their whole day writing on them will be forced to get a job. Then maybe they can afford the gas prices they keep crying about.

WILL YOU PLEASE STOP publishing Rants & Raves over the new format of the paper? Who cares? I never heard so much crying over a non-issue.

A RANT ABOUT 95 Rock letting that ignorant Jordan on the air. He offends everyone. I would rather listen to a car alarm instead of that raving idiot.

TO THE RANTER ABOUT Columbia County taxes used to pick up trash. The sheriff's office has two inmate crews that go all around the county picking up trash. Funny thing, though, it needs picking up again within about two days of the inmates' cleaning up an area. So my rant is to all the people who litter.

THIS IS A RAVE for WBBQ and the affiliates that worked so had on Saturday to keep us up to date with the storms.

A RAVE TO THE Columbia County News Times for featuring people who make a difference in the community, but a rant for highlighting those who are profiting from the free advertising, like local authors and store owners.

RANT TO ALL DRIVERS WHO drive up the ramp to get on I-520 and completely ignore the merge sign. The one who drives fastest gets to the gas station the quickest.

A RAVE FOR JUDGE Carlisle Overstreet, who actually stood by the door as excused potential jurors were excused and personally took time to shake hands and thank everyone for the time to participate in the jury selection process.

A RAVE TO THE Richmond County Board Education for hiring a superintendent who knows what is really going on in these schools! Some of the slackest of principals are working hard.

A RANT TO PEOPLE that order pizza online and call in orders to be delivered and don't tip. Gas is high. Drivers are just like waiters. This is how they make their money.

DURING MASTERS WEEK many positive statements appear in this column. Let's put our best foot forward to show our visitors that we are a wonderful community. We have much for which to be thankful.

To the ranter about the online readers, hey goober I am at WORK when I respond. Do you work? Just as you have the right to rant, we have the right to respond or there would be no rant & raves, only a raves section. If you do not like it, then do not read it! Simple, huh?

I suppose that as long as we don't whine about how the gas prices went up 10-cents on Mater's Monday, or how the restaurants are too busy to visit, or how bad the "patrons" drive, or how bad the traffic sucks with the I-20 re-routing..... we'll probably be okay. ;-)

A RANT TO THE online

A RANT TO THE online readers' comments: I work at home and don't have to commute to work!!!! I get paid above minimum wage and I am blessed with this job even though it is part time! I get family time and I get my voice heard. It is too bad you won't join us cause you sure can't beat us!

I would agree that pizza

I would agree that pizza drivers need tips! I usually do as I know what they go through, I used to work as one myself and I know that they don't make much and even when they get paid only 50 cents to deliver that silly pizza a good distance from the pizza place, that doesn't give them much for gas the next work day. Then they have to worry about being robbed to boot cause the economy seems to make people want to steal more...They should ask for hazard pay to boot.

Ok RobbyLogan, I heard you

Ok RobbyLogan, I heard you the first time on your 4:56am post. I have to agree about the Jordan Zay rant, can't stand him. I listen to Lex and Terry every morning on the way to work, and the new Jazz station on the way home or during commercials. It is much more soothing to MY soul than the other stations. However I like lots of the songs on other stations, the jazz just puts me at ease, you'd be amazed.
