FOR THE MICHAEL Jackson supporter, I would like him to know that the testimony from the security officer was under oath. The jury acquitted him, but I didn't. There should be more Michael Jacksons in the world? Give me a break.

MICHAEL JACKSON was talented. California is broke. Now the state is going to spend $2.5 million on a memorial. Why not let the family pay for the memorial if they want to have one?

I'D JUST LIKE to say thank you to those responsible for the wonderful fireworks display on the Fourth. It was spectacular.

THE FIREWORKS on the river were awesome as always. But for me the contemporary music that was played during the event seemed to cheapen the moment a bit. What ever happened to patriotic martial music for events such as these? Just wondering.

A BIG RAVE for Bill Kirby and his uplifting, enjoyable column, rather than the criticism of the mean media always looking for ways to put folks down. Could he share his mother's biscuit recipe that helped him finish the Peachtree?

WILL EVERYONE please just leave the death of Michael Jackson alone? No one felt this strongly towards him when he was alive. Why now?

ONLINE COMMENTER says she wants an explanation about the "mentality" behind blue laws. Maybe she should stand back and look at the big, long-term picture. The more commonsense Christianity falls, the more destruction of our economy and freedoms ascends. It's as plain as day.

RICHMOND COUNTY schools seem to be bragging about how 1,400 failed students passed a test on science and social studies. "The overall pass rate ... was 68 percent, more than double last year's pass rate..." Alas, a pass rate of only 68 percent is still pathetic. Surely, Richmond County kids are not so innately stupid. It's parents and schools who are making the mess.

IT APPEARS that downtown Augusta still needs some major improvements and still has a long way to go. Several property owners refuse to invest in their buildings, even when they sit in what appear to be prime locations on Broad Street. Without noise and curfew controls, it won't take long for renters to move out. Motorcycle noise is such a hindrance, and something needs to be done to quieten the mufflers.

LOUD MUSIC of any kind -- be it vulgar, gospel or elevator music -- which is coming from a automobile is unacceptable and it is unlawful. Nip these gangster wannabes in the bud. Show them how to be decent law abiding citizens. If these law breakers are hard of hearing senior citizens, we will take up a collection to buy them hearing aids.

A RANT to the AC for not even

A RANT to the AC for not even mentioning the storm-related power outage to at least one subdivision along Old Petersburg Rd in Martinez last night. The outage lasted from approximately 8pm until 1am. I'm curious about how many other customers were affected.

Greetings and Salutations

Greetings and Salutations !!......Well lets see Unemployment is at a high that the Dims. said would happen IF they did NOT pass barrys boondoggle.........CNN is reporting what the barrys kids are wearing in Rome...and barrys sidekick emanual got a long distance "howler" from barry for mis-speaking on the ever ballooning health issue.....oh and this.....The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 32% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-seven percent (37%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –5. The number who strongly disapprove inched up another point to the highest level measured to date and the overall Approval Index is at the lowest level yet for Obama

The unemployment rate is now

The unemployment rate is now 9.5 % but that only reflects the number actually drawing benefits. It does not include those who have become ineligible or simply have not applied. It also does not include the illegals. 6.88 million out of work. 565000 applied for new benefits in a 4 day work cycle last week (holiday closing) Ohio shows O'bama down by 14 % favorability in 2 mths among likely voters. Anti tax tea party numbers swells since apr 15th. Source CNN of all places. Guess Rose and RCR (run call rose) will doubt these figures too.....

My guess is we would be

My guess is we would be better off making the RC teachers take the tests. From what I have seen, I do not think 68% of the teachers could pass.
