Rants & Raves

Comments from our readers:

AS I'M SITTING here Friday watching the second day of the U.S. Open, I'm appalled at the USGA would give the greatest golfers in the world such easy conditions and such an easy golf course to shoot at. I think I'm watching the Shell Houston Open. The winner's probably going to be 20-under par. I guess the players bickering at the deep rough and the conditions in the past, the USGA is finally giving in. Now we're just watching another cheap imitation of the Shell Houston Open.

IF THOSE AGAINST fossil fuels would rid their existence of all plastic (by-products of oil) then I might not think they are gas bags.

THIS IS A RANT to all the drivers who can't move over to the left lane if clear when approaching an on-ramp. We know you have the right of way, but would a little courtesy put you out too much?

I COMPLETELY AGREE with the medical student ranting about Augusta. I am in the same boat. Most of us call living here "serving time," like we are in prison. I would consider a residency in inner-city Detroit a step up from being stuck here. I always heard this placed called "Disgusta." Now I understand why.

A BIG RAVE to the person or persons who had the new signs installed at the entrance of Holiday Park subdivision. This project was very much needed, and so thanks again for stepping up to the plate and getting the job done.

HOW ODD THAT with all the dangerous bozos who end up in Congress, we have ended up with Weiners and Franks.

THIS IS A RANT on Republicans. No, I'm not a Democrat. I'm an independent. But the Republicans keep telling the American people we are spending too much money we don't have, yet they keep giving billions of dollars to the big oil companies and billions of dollars of tax breaks to most wealthy Americans. Is this money we have or money that don't count when you spend it? Can't be both. Which is it?

I WENT TO MCG and agree with Dr. Azziz and the medical student. I'm now a neurologist in Atlanta. Most of my friends at MCG were eager to leave Augusta. Now that the Athens campus is open, I imagine many medical students will choose to study there over Augusta.

REGARDING THIS whole debate on whether Augusta is "cool" or not: I think The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band settled that question more than 30 years ago when they said "Augusta, Georgia, is just no place to be."

WHY WERE PRISONERS at Augusta Mall cutting and removing shrubbery on Wednesday afternoon?

WE HAVE NO business sending troops into Libya. Bring our National Guard home. Get rid of Obama and his crew and we'll have a country left.
