Rants and raves

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.

"Citing privacy concerns, the

"Citing privacy concerns, the Cambridge, Mass. City Council has voted 9-0 to remove security cameras scattered throughout the city. 'Because of the slow erosion of our civil liberties since 9/11, it is important to raise questions regarding these cameras,' said Marjorie Decker, a Cambridge city councilor. Rather than citing privacy, WCBVTV is running the story under the headline 'City's Move To Nix Security Cams May Cost Thousands Maybe we can get them to donate the camera equiptment to Augusta, GA

Sarge: That's a huge problem. It seems we've forgotten sometimes the greater public good must supercede the objections of "big brotherhood".

About the retired teacher

About the retired teacher comment...those teachers came out of retirement to make sure that your children and grandchildren were not in over-crowded classrooms and to ensure that they receive a quality education. Otherwise, it would have been our future's "tough luck"! Without an education, you are nothing!

i4putt,i will give you an

i4putt,i will give you an example of the american press biased attitude toward american cars .in the early 90s i worked at fairway ford,well the explorer had just come out and we were curious about how they rated it .we bought a copy of consumer reports to look it up,well they were very unflatering on the explorer ,they rated it poor across the board,well just for kicks and giggles we also looked up the mazda navajo,well guess what ,it rated exellent across the board.THE DAMN THINGS ROLL DOWN THE SAME ASEMBLY LINE .one gets ford badging one get mazda badging .so dont tell me the press is not biased ,i havent trusted consumer reports since.
