A HUGE RAVE TO THE fifth-graders at South Columbia Elementary. Your play performance of Hamlet was wonderful. All those months of hard work paid off. You should be proud. Also, a big thank-you those who helped make this possible.

YOUR AP STORY CALLED Stonehenge "Some of England's most sacred soil." What's sacred about a pagan rock pile?

SECRETARY RICE AGAIN is "threatening" Israel if it doesn't follow the dictates of the U.S. Rice needs firing, and immediately.

THE GEORGIA SUPREME COURT upheld the conviction of Charles Lee Bowman, who did his murdering 17 years ago. What kind of "justice" system takes 17 years to get a confessed murderer completely convicted?

AUGUSTA GETS $11,000 (U.S. taxpayer money) to study Harrisburg?

Is it up to Oregon taxpayers to pay to study a section of Augusta, Ga.? Is it up to taxpayers from Kansas? From Florida even? No wonder Washington, D.C., can't balance a budget.

DO WE NOW HAVE TO hear about James Brown's vasectomy for the next who knows how long? Would the media PLEASE take better responsibility for what they print? Would you like YOUR most personal info out there for the whole world?

TO THE IMPATIENT JERK at the gas station: I hope it made you feel better Saturday when you blocked my 65-year-old mother and my aunt in at the gas pumps because you thought my Mom took to long to pay for her gas. I hope it made you feel more like a man to make them sit in their car while you pumped and paid for your gas. Oh, by the way, they had just left the hospital, where my aunt had just lost her husband.

TO THE IDIOT RANTING about the Pre-K Program in Columbia County. Their Pre-K program is not a baby-sitting service. Those children go through school activities all day long. They don't just sit there and play and watch TV. I am a mother of a 6-year-old and I say their program is excellent and it helped my son out a lot.

What happened to the good old

What happened to the good old days before public kindergarten when we all had to pay for our children to attend if we wanted them to have that experience? I say if there aren't enough spaces available in Columbia County's programs for ALL kids then they need to start filling spaces by taking the children from families with the lowest incomes first as they are most likely the ones who need it the most. If that means busing the little ones over to Blue Ridge, or any other program on that side of the county, from Harlem then by all means do so. I cannot believe I hear so much whining about this program, especially from parents who have sufficient income to pay for private kindergarten.

To the person ranting about

To the person ranting about the Stonehenge special.... hello, your ignorance is showing. Your religion/beliefs is NOT the only one that is allowed to consider their relics sacred. As a Christian, comments like yours make me cringe, because some reading your post will assume you are Christian and see the "devil" in everything outside of what you consider acceptable in your little, narrow minded world.

DD - G'morning - Allow me

DD - G'morning - Allow me start the tournament today - - A little girl asked her Mother, 'How did the human race appear?'
The Mother answered, 'God made Adam and Eve, and they had children, so
all mankind was made.'
Two days later the girl asked her Father the same question.
The father answered, 'Many years ago there were monkeys from which
the human race evolved.'
The confused little girl returned to her Mother and said, 'Mom, how is
it possible, you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad
said they developed from monkeys?'
The mother answered, 'Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about
my side of the family and your Father told you about his.

thank you areyoukidding for pointing out my mistake. I too noted it when I made it. Do you recall the apology? I know I'm not perfect, I just appear that way when compared to posters like you. I try to stay my usual humble self, but you really make it difficult.

I agree patriciathomas. Too many of these religious fanatics in the right-wing have destroyed the meaning of sacred. I would not describe you as narcissistic, but rather the victim of overcompensation.

Dig deep into the roots of

Dig deep into the roots of christian history, and you'll find your beloved religion topsy-turvy; full of fanatisism, fear, intolerance of non-christians, etc., etc. The list goes on, and on. This religion was contrived from Pagan beginnings, and twisted to dupe the populace into "conforming" to this garbage. Spew your venom elsewhere! Oh, and dinosaurs didn't walk the earth tens of millions of years ago either. OK...

The Pope and Hillary Clinton

The Pope and Hillary Clinton were on a stage together in front of a huge
crowd. However, both of them have been in front of crowds before, so, to
make this time more interesting, Hillary said to the Pope, 'Did you know
that with just one little wave of my hand I can make every Democrat in
the crowd go wild?'

He said, 'Really! Show me.'

She waved. Sure enough, every Democrat in the crowd cheered wildly. The
cheering then subsided as quickly as it started.

The Pope, not to be outdone by such arrogance, thought about what he
could do to answer her stunt. "That was impressive," the Pope said, "But
did you know that with just one little wave of my hand I can make almost
every person in this country go crazy with joy? What's more, this joy
will not be a momentary display like that of your people, but will go
deep into their hearts. They will forever speak of this day, and they
will rejoice."

The senator doubted this, of course, and said with a smirk, "One little
wave of your hand and all people will rejoice forever? Show me."

So the Pope slapped her.
