THIS IS A RANT against Congress and all of the politicians out there. I've worked all my life and I've lost my job and I've been receiving unemployment. Now my unemployment's about to run out after three months. Only three months. And there is no extension. Don't you think it's really wonderful the way my family has to suffer? Meanwhile, millions of people have to suffer. Instead of taking care of other countries, it's time the United States takes care of its own. Buy American and take care of us Americans. We worked all our lives to make this country what it is. And we would like to have unemployment or a job.
THIS IS A RAVE to The Chronicle for putting the wonderful article and pictures of the snakes in the paper recently and a rant to the person who sent that ignorant rant in to you about snakes. I am 80 years old. I go hiking. I love snakes. I put pictures like that in my backpack when I go in case someone along the trail thinks he has been bitten by a poisonous snake. Snakes eat mosquitoes and other bugs that might be detrimental to our environment.
THIS IS A RAVE for the snake article. It was very good. The pictures help one be able to identify the snakes. Thank you very much.
A RANT FOR the person who was grossed out about the picture of snakes. Please do us all a favor and stay inside your house forever and ever. A rave for The Chronicle for educating the rest of us.
THIS IS A RAVE. I am a 90-year-old woman. I would like to see a woman as mayor. But Deke Copenhaver is doing a good job. We just need to cooperate with that man and work with him. When he took office, there was so much dissension. Let's wait for our woman mayor. Keep Copenhaver in there.
THIS IS A READER that's been there for y'all for 33 years. Please put our Mini Page back in. And by the way, I don't have a computer. I'm an old woman.
I'M CALLING concerning all the murders going on in Augusta, especially the east side, in just the past month. The news media are really not letting us know what's going on. Is a serial killer in the area, or what is it? We want to know what's going on.
I DID NOT VOTE for, nor cared much for Bill Clinton as president. I never thought I would say this, but looking back and comparing him with what we have now, Clinton was wonderful.
DRIVING HABITS tell a lot about a person. When my family and I ride down the road and we see someone in the left lane blocking traffic or weaving, etc., we play "cell phone or older driver?" Most of the time it is a cell phone. Your phone call is not more important than my family.
