SINCE MARK SANFORD has declared his love for the South American woman and left his office secretly to be with her, he should be removed from office immediately so he can have all that time to be with the woman he loves.

THE SOUTH CAROLINA Light Governor (playboy Andre Bauer) was on national TV. Please get him to crawl back in his hole where he is reasonably harmless. He said he would "take over the state in the governor's absence." My kids' parents have not slept since.

OBVIOUSLY, Mark Sanford has some deep-rooted mental issues going on. I voted for him, but after hearing everything he has to say about this affair, I think he needs some help. I hope he resigns; I do not trust him as our governor.

IF THE GOVERNOR has found "his soul mate" and is trying "to fall back in love" with his wife, it's pretty obvious his choice has been made and it's just a matter of time before he admits it.

THIS IS A RANT to you and the rest of the media for your biased coverage of Mark Sanford. Everyone knows that you are only going after him because he dared to criticize Obama, just like you go after anyone else who's critical of that man.

I WOULD LIKE to send out a huge rave to the Grovetown Public Safety Police Department for doing such a good job for the citizens of Grovetown.

YEAH, YEAH, there's a lot more coverage on Michael Jackson's death than most. So what! He was an international star. Everyone in the world knows who he is.

RAVE FOR Cal Thomas' column in the Chronicle Wednesday. It is right on the mark about all this media coverage of Michael Jackson. He is an idol all right. All such worship is a sad commentary on our culture today.

ENOUGH ABOUT Michael Jackson. He is "king of pop"? No way. Big band music. Glenn Miller. Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey. That is popular music; had been for 50 years or more. Always will be.

ABSENTEE LANDLORDS have the ability to make Harrisburg wonderful and to raise their own property values if they follow this golden rule: Never rent to anyone you would not want living next door to you.

IS THERE ANY code enforcement at all in the city of Augusta? You have dilapidated homes and buildings all over the place that look worse than shanties in Third World countries. Some with no electricity or running water. This is pathetic.

AFTER READING your editorial page Tuesday swatting down Sonia Sotomayor, I must say that I don't think there's a justice on the Supreme Court that hasn't had a case overturned. That's just the way it is; you are going to win some and you are going to lose some.

Pat Buchanan and "Obviously" are right: Mark Sanford does need psychiatric help.

"Employers cut 467,000 jobs

"Employers cut 467,000 jobs in June, far more than expected, and the jobless rate hit a 26-year high of 9.5 percent. Just as worrisome, wages shrank to their lowest in nearly a year.

The bleak news Thursday from the Labor Department underscored one of the big threats to an economic turnaround: Rising joblessness and falling wages for those still working could send Americans back into spending hibernation and short-circuit any recovery"..........................are we stimulated YET??

Wake up and stand up to the gun lobby! Your children are no longer safe at Aiken State Park (or any other park for that matter) thanks to the NRA! Read this and get informed: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/03/opinion/lweb03guns.html

ladyjanegrey, what I just

ladyjanegrey, what I just posted is NOT a game, and yet you treat this issue like one. Well over 100,000 children were killed by handguns in 1975 alone and an average of 65,000 children have been killed by handgun violence since then. Although I have been fortunate that none of my younger family members have been killed by gun violence, the same cannot be said for many other family members. The deaths in Pittsburgh; Blacksburg, VA; Wichita; Littleton, CO; and Blackville over the last 15 years from gun violence should have sent some kind of common sense to us. But no. The same s*** keep happening again and again, because the NRA is essentially in control of the federal government and the state legislatures. In NY, Rep. Carolyn Maloney is already challenging one such hack from the gun lobby, Sen. Kristen Gillibrand. I hope that Rep. Maloney wins this US Senate seat.

Williston, you idiot, do

Williston, you idiot, do think criminals are going to the gun store to buy guns. Hell no, they buy them on the street. You can't legislate that kind of gun control without taking the guns out of the hands of law abiding people. I swear I don't know where you come up with you're stupid, stupid liberal ideas.

What about Gang control laws? Williston if they can get all the drugs they want from Mexico. You don't think the illegals can smuggle guns also?

If someone is determined to kill another, the lack of a gun is not going to stop them. Also, trying to get rid of guns altogether would be almost as possible as getting rid of illegal drugs. Ain't gunna happen!

If you are not for the

If you are not for the freedom to own a gun you are a total friggin Idiot. A gun alone has never killed anyone without assistance so get you head out of your butts and see that. It is like people fussing about the gators coming near them. that is not normal activity for gators, hmmmmmm why then do they come up to you if you walk up. that is because a few Idiots fed them because it was cute, prob the same damn Idiots that want to do away with the gun ownership.

For all that enjoy the right

For all that enjoy the right of freedom of speech. You can keep it. Millions also like this one. Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

You can keep your free speech just keep it to yourselves and stop showing your stupidity every time the gums flap.
