Rants and raves

Comments from our readers.

I CAN'T BELIEVE someone complained about the "Fat Lady" headline. It's a well-known fact that female opera singers tend to be on the hefty side.

I WOULD LIKE to put in a grateful rave for Michael, who went out of his way to help my husband and I when our fan quit running while on post. Thank you, Michael. We will always remember your kindness. Please put this in the rave column. This young man is a wonderful man and has spent four tours in Iraq.

I want to know why they won't bring down the grocery prices so we can get more stuff that we need instead of just picking over a few things.

MY PET PEEVE is people that leave political stickers on their cars long after the election is over, especially the presidential election, and further than that, the people that voted for McCain. It's over. McCain's probably not going to run in 2012. So please take them off.

JUST WANTED TO SAY thanks to the gentleman who found keys in the Hill Station Post Office on Stovall Street and returned them to me. Thanks again for your kindness.

I CANNOT UNDERSTAND the law. If Michael Vick had killed a human being he would have been out of jail and playing football again, but killing a dog you get more time than you do for killing a human being.

YOU KNOW THERE'S something wrong in this country when Bernard Madoff can sit in his luxury apartment after robbing thousands of people and ruining thousands of peoples' lives, but yet don't you get caught smoking marijuana. We'll put you in jail.

IF AUGUSTA PUT security cameras everywhere on Broad Street and Walton Way and all the other busy areas downtown, we would all have a safer city.

REGARDING ALL THE retired teachers that are being let go. I say: "Tough luck." They were already taking way too much of the taxpayers' money by being able to claim retirement and continue to work for a salary. It's unfortunate that they lost their jobs, but it had to happen.

IF SHERIFF RONALD STRENGTH and the commissioners know who the gangs are that are causing all these problems at these teen clubs, why don't they pick up the Harrisburg Posse and Southside Boys that are causing all of these problems? Why should the kids that are trying to have a clean good time suffer for what these gangs are doing?

THE MANAGERS OF movie theaters in the area need to start doing their jobs and start making sure that disabled people are allowed to have the proper seats in their theaters.
