IF JAMES BROWN actually said his vasectomy was painless (Augusta Chronicle , 03-29-08), then he didn't have one!

PLEASE PRINT THE NAMES of the Coliseum Authority members, the government official who appointed them and the length of their appointment. Pictures of them also would be helpful. I would like to know who these clowns are.

A RANT TO THE MOM who complained about her daughter getting pulled over for going 10 mph on Furys Ferry. I am not even going to mention the numerous reasons why you should be glad this officer pulled your daughter over.

ENOUGH ABOUT THE dog park already! My wife, dog and I have been there on several occasions now and seen not one other human or dog there. Where are all of these people that are so upset about the dogs?

HOW HARD CAN THE JOB at the Civic Center be? It seems all you have to be able to do is answer the phone and learn how to say "no" to every form of entertainment that would like to come here to Augusta.

IT IS AMAZING! The Democrats want us to elect them to make the rules for our country, when after being a political party for years they cannot even make rules to run a successful presidential nomination selection process.

A BIG RANT TO THE churches in Augusta that refuse to take disciplinary action against their pastors for misconduct but punish the young ladies instead.

YES, WE HAVE SOME pitiful help in a lot of part-time workers. They act like they don't really care for the work they promised to do just because they don't get benefits. I fear for their work ethic and morals when they can get a so-called real job in the future. And a big rave for that special scanner for the maintenance workers that are catching the cheaters of work time in the Board of Education. It's too bad that it had to come to such a device to cut down on such bad workers.

I'm pretty confident that Mr Brown could have been "medicated" enough to feel no pain.

Thank you! :) I think I bought up every lifesaver wintermint candy.....lol. Yes, it's wonderful to be able to smell again........never realized how bad walking by someone who has just smoked smelled though. But, hopefully, they too, will find the will power to quit......it CAN be done. Christian, you have a wonderful and blessed day :)

playa - In ref to your beer line observation. Thanks once again to the CA staff for the wonderful planning. Who would have ever thought that folks at a Ron White concert might want a cold one or three on a Friday night before a week off?

How can you take your dog to

How can you take your dog to the doggie park when none has been designated? Is it legal walking your dog in the botanical garden? How in touch are you with what's happening in Augusta?

What's your point? The Republicans allow their scums to go around the country and get paid to give their feel good speeches. Can you say North and Newt. The pride of the Republican party.

To the ranter about local

To the ranter about local churches pastorial misconduct. Don't be broad-brushing all the fine churches in this area because of one or two incidents. If the girls were wronged, they can sue in open court.

Hypocrat, you are rightt abut reading to find out abut our elected officials. Evidently you don't follow your own advice when you talk about "quality" in the DIMocRAT Party, especially the two clowns performing for us now.

What will it take for people

What will it take for people to follow the rules for driving in the rain? A massive wreck with critical injuries and death???? People....it's a STATE LAW that you have your headlights ON when you have your windshiled wipers on. That means....if it's rainy enough to use your wipers...your lights should be ON. Why is this so hard tro remember? It's only common sense....if bvisibility is lowered because of fog or rain, you need your headlights ON so others can see YOU. Please....please.....turn your headlights on when it's raining. You don't want to cause a wreck or be in one. It's simple. And...use your headlights...NOT your parking lights. Those are for parking...they are NOT running lights...and NOT meant to be used while driving.

I had a friend my freshman

I had a friend my freshman year in college who tried to get me to start smoking right at the end of the last semester. I can't remember if I bought that second pack or just one. (1966). My NY grandparents were going to accompany me back to Georgia in a car I had inherited from my aunt. One word from my grandfather telling me not to smoke was enough. I wish I had all of the money I have saved!!

jancee..I am laughing so hard

jancee..I am laughing so hard it hurts. It is evident that thesee jerks who are driving around with no lights don't care about all that. If they think you want them to turn on the lights, they will leave them off just for spite. I have had them look me in the face, sneer, and drive off laughing, (sitting down so low in the seat that they peer through the steering wheel and can only see the tip of their hood) and sneering about what a jerk YOU are. That's life in the present state.
