Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

THIS RAVE is for Butch Palmer. Mr. Palmer's message about cleaning up Harrisburg is working. Slowly but surely, Harrisburg's population is becoming more upwardly mobile. Keep it up, Mr. Palmer.You symbolize the mighty bastion of decency in Harrisburg.Thank you for setting proper community standards.

THIS IS TO the person in the little red sporty car. You ran the red light because you were not paying attention and obviously speeding. To keep from hitting me, you went into oncoming traffic and ended up in the parking lot of Wachovia bank on Peach Orchard Road. I pulled behind you and got your tag number, and when I pulled alongside you to confront you, you wouldn't even look at me. You could have hurt very badly or killed a lot of people with your careless driving.

I FEEL BAD for the truck driver killed recently on I-20. Readers need to understand that though some trucks can run fast, the majority are governed (most at 65 mph or less). We also have brakes on all wheels, but that doesn't mean we can stop 80,000 pounds on a dime.

THIS IS A GREAT BIG rave for the Aiken County Sheriff's Department, all the emergency service personel, the employees of SCE&G and all the volunteers all over our area for a job well done during and after the tornado on Friday. Thank you all.

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE Ruth Bader Ginsburg has gone bonkers. She insists that the U.S. court can make its decisions based on laws from foreign countries. Clearly, even Alabama doesn't base its court's decisions on Georgia laws, or vice versa. So how can this U.S. judge believe such nonsense?

THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS says it'll need $20,000 to do an "assessment" on Lake Thurmond/Clarks Hill. The lake is a giant water puddle. Giant water puddles have existed ever since water. The country is broke, but the Corps wants to spend more. Doesn't the Corps of Engineers already get paychecks and have operating money from our taxes? Why does it claim to need more?

THE RANTER who said our current commander-in-chief was too much of a wimp to handle the Somali pirates sure made a fool of himself. Our new president will authorize the use of force only when needed, unlike our previous president and his cohorts, who were loose cannons.

Well, such that it is, here's

Well, such that it is, here's the Fishing Report I promised before I left Friday....The fish, evidently being Government Workers(as Clarke's Hill is a Federal Impoundment) took the weekend off.....starting with Good Friday. Not to say that someone...somewhere didn't catch a fish over the weekend, but I gave it my best effort, and when the fish-finder quit working, I gave up. It was about that time that I muttered something to my FIL that we forgot the Dynamite. Just about that time, I realized that the Game Warden was approaching to have a look at our Licenses and Boat Registration......A fun time was had by all up until the point that he asked if We were sure he couldn't count our fish, at which point, I made it clear that we'd ran out of Dynamite just yesterday and had resorted to hook and line fishing to pass the time.

This is for the person or

This is for the person or persons who complianed about the Lady in section 12 row A at the Lord of the Dance Tuesday night April 14. I was setting behind her and she was not bothering any of us, so you must not enjoy yourself whenever you get out, stay at home and watch TV so the rest of us can enjoy ourselves when we pay to see a great show at the Bell. And to the Lady, I'm sorry that we have people like that in Augusta. Please next time stay and enjoy the show untill the end.

Tujeez, your fish finder stopped working. Does that mean your worm died on the hook before catching a fish?

This is RANT to one of

This is RANT to one of Richmond County's finest who threw two young men into the back of his squad while they exiting the mall just because one of gentlemen was wearing a jacket similar to the one a burglar suspect is wearing. These gentlemen have no idea whats going until later when the real thefts are caught and they are about to be released. At this time the gentlemen now understand and one of the makes the comment to the other "That's Wack". The officer gets upset and charges the two innocent kid for "DISORDERLY CONDUCT" for their comment. I understand the officer has a job to do, but part of that job is to apology for the mistakes or misjudgments "HE" makes. An apology would have been find but sometime when you have a badge it's not necessary.

I posted the rant about Obama

I posted the rant about Obama being a whimp! Today's ranter missed my point. My point is this - with the straight shootin', rootin' tootin' 6 gun straight shootin' cowboy Bush at the helm, no pirates or rogue nation or anyone else dared attack the USA after he blistered Sadaam. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With Obama, we are going to see the enemy become brazen and attack again and again. I give him credit for ordering the Navy Seals to kill the Somalian thugs and maybe, I hope, his actions will deter future attacks against the US and US interests. But nothing like the pirate take over of the Marsk Alabama happened under Bush's watch!

greenjacket - Thank you, Sir.

greenjacket - Thank you, Sir. But I must pick nits - he did not "order" them to be killed. He approved a draft ROE that permitted the on-scene commander to make a decision if faced with specific circumstances.

We were fishing Thursday and seems the fish know when the weather is good and disappear just like the deer seem to know when hunting season is over (and they show up).

Those South Richmond County Deer are favored as hood ornaments almost as much as the ones from Columbia County.

Yes they are. My kids have

Yes they are. My kids have grown up around the world, literally but love Bambi burgers and still get a kick out of seeing the deer on the road- me not so much.
