IF RICHMOND COUNTY wanted to sell those rundown schools for a huge profit, it should have let Marion Williams sell them. He knows how to sell real estate.

I DOUBT IF THE government's spreading the money around is going to help our problem. The financial advisers have tried this and it has not helped.

A PROPOSED LAW would "permit" regions to charge extra taxes for roadwork? No! Period! If Georgia needs roadwork, Georgia lawmakers must stop the abysmal waste in socialistic programs already being paid for. Then there'll be enough money to pay for roads.

RANT TO THAT auto dealership on Washington and Bobby Jones that has closed. It is a disgrace to see all those U.S. flags just flapping in the wind and getting raggedy.

WHY DON'T PEOPLE start acting like human beings. The president been in the chair for one week, and they want results. Bush was in for eight years and left all this mess.

A BIG RAVE for Nicole E. at The Olive Garden who provided us with outstanding customer service.

OBAMA DOESN'T WANT war, but he wants more American soldiers in Afghanistan. It must make sense to somebody ...

DUE TO THE DEGRADING quality of The Chronicle and since it no longer cares about what the readers want, it should go ahead and shut down! Print this, you jerks.

IF YOU STEP BACK and look at the number and diversity of the lawsuits against Augusta and the Purchasing Department, you would have to be a fool not to see that there is a big problem there. What are they trying to cover up? If everything is on the up and up, there should be no problem with any freedom of information requests. Correct?

I CAN HARDLY WAIT for my stimulus check to come. I'm going to buy a TV made in China, a car made in Japan, and I'm going to take a trip to Mexico. I hope "Barry Bucks" are good in Mexico.

THERE IS AN ANGEL flying around Augusta who watches over my two grandsons. Because of her, I sleep better in Florida. Thank you.

WHOSE SIDE IS (columnist Eugene) Robinson on? Mr. Robinson is on the side of those who abhor the slaughter of children, no matter what the cause.

Last night I was sitting in

Last night I was sitting in the waiting room of MCG's Emergency room, with my Brother who was there to comfort a friend who Father suffered a possible heart attack. We were there for approximately 2-3 hours with about 4 others, when the aftermath of another night club shooting spilled in through the doors. From what I could gather there had been a double shooting at club Platinum. What was a quiet night in the E.R. quickly turned into something that concerned me. Approximately 50 or more family and " Friends" of the two shooting victims arrived and tension filled the air. I had immediately concern for my Brother's friend who is a State Trooper and was in full uniform with only a jacket covering the shirt she was wearing. I was immediately taken over by a sense of pending chaos and had started planning a course of actions should things blow up. The group were very vocal and cussing and bragging about who beat who down and knocked who out. To my surprised at least an hour went by before I saw any visible or felt the present of law enforcement. My Brother expressed to me the concern for his friend should anyone recognize her uniform because at the time I did not know whether or not

Our government is spending

Our government is spending $640 million MORE on this digital television transition. Why? Because 5.7 million idiots in this country are estimated to be so stupid they couldn't get a converter box even with 10 frickin years warning. That's less than one half of one percent of all tv households. Why are they concerned? Because it's our "poorest" and "minorities" who will lose TV service. GOOD. Our Government is beyond repair folks. We spend trillions to solve a crisis that affects less than 10% of our population. Vote for anyone but Dim's and Repugnant's in all elections. THROW THE ( X )'s OUT!

continue....this was a law

continue....this was a law enforcement involved shooting or not. I found out later that it was not. At the time there really was no way to know and my Brother's friend had her young daughter with her. Also there was no way of knowing whether or not the two " victims" shot each other and that friends of each one would meet up there and start part 2. I am used to volatile situations but this was an emergency room filled with cursing and young thugs and I meant to use the word thugs just loud and disrespectful. I know the few patients that were there had to be intimidated. You could see it in their faces. I brought this up to say that MCG had better look at it's policy of how many " Friends" not necessarily family member, can be in there waiting room. The potential for disaster was there. There was entirely no reason that several dozens friends should have been there all hyped up, bragging about their thuggish behavioral and talking about revenge and who better not go to school, or the gym or the park. I am begging all hospitals to look at their policy before innocent people are caught in the cross fire of these THUGS.

Good morning all. After

Good morning all. After seeing our wonderful senators agree on this Democratic wish list of enormous spending, I decided to join in the fun at Club Platinum. I can only assume I have been searching for intelligent life in all the wrong places.

The minute MCG attempts to

The minute MCG attempts to limit the number of people allowed in their waiting area - someone will protest it as being biased against one group or another. I can see it now "MCG discriminates against large families"........ you get the picture. MCG is by far the best hospital in this area but unfortunately their night time clientele is enough to make at least some people go to other area hospitals to avoid the exact situation you described.

Family is one thing but these

Family is one thing but these so called " Friends" should be limited. Hell they only allow 2 family members at a time to visit, why should they not limit how many none family members can occupy their waiting rooms?

p thomas, bush wouldn't

p thomas, bush wouldn't accept responsibility for the weather anymore than he has anything else.he would say it was clinton's fault,or possibly fdr's anyones but his.this guy is the ultimate coward.when asked if he would serve over seas during vietnam, he checked no,vincete foxe said he wanted bush to go horseback riding with him on his ranch in mexico.he said bush froze and was scared to mount the horse.the only thing this wimp coward can do is attack twigs on his ranch with a chainsaw,and i bet the secret service had already cut it and he thought he had done something masculine.and who can forget that burst of adrenalin he displayed in the school on 911?ask any texan and they'll remind you that wimpy was born in conn not texas.
