Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

A RANT TO THE people living in the Manchester neighborhood that told my children were too big to trick or treat. I think that if my kids are still school age and love the holiday then let them celebrate it.

THANKS TO THE idiot who put a dog biscuit with purple icing in my grandson’s trick or treat bag. Probably would not have hurt him but that is just gross and it scary to think that weirdo lives in the neighborhood.

TO THE (OLDER) teenage thief who stole the werewolf hand plasma globe off our front porch on Halloween – you can explain to the over 100 kids who come by each year, why there will be no more Halloween handouts at the cool house on Jamaica Drive next year or any other.

I AGREE WITH THE ranter about the need for “blue” recognition of men who fight cancer. I would really like to know what all they go through for the breast and non-breast type cancers. How about some articles there in honor of male cancer survivors, please?

A BIG RANT to the mother who dragged her little boy around in his costume on Sunday to solicit for candies from homes.

HUGE RAVES TO THE Chronicle for going to Reuters News Service “to diversify the political news coverage”. I do not know if Reuters will more “fair and balanced” than the Associated Press but is obvious that the AP is slanting all their reporting to ensure Obama’s re-election.

TO THE WOMAN who ignored the stop sign and pulled out right in front of me on Mike Padgett in not only her pickup, but with trailer in tow, if the left lane had not been clear for me to swerve to avoid hitting you, there may have been another senseless death due to your actions. My child was in the car with me so learn how to drive with some sense or get off of the road!

YOU KEEP ON CUTTING the paper and you will cut yourselves out of business. Not everyone has computers.

ANOTHER RANT against the editorial page. I guess you have nothing else to do except report on Coach Spurrier. He had every right to ban Ron Morris from their press conferences. He is a very biased reporter just like The Augusta Chronicle.

Come on man, don't make 100 kids suffer because of the low life thief who stole your property. It wasn't the 100 kids fault. Don't you see that if you don't participate in Halloween (which you obviously enjoy) then not only do you and the kids lose but the low life thief wins. Take the year to think about it but the kids need a "cool house on Jamaica drive". Do it for the kids. It will make you happy!

Going for a Pre-Op. I would like to say, IMO, that this great nation is being destroyed plus all the issues discussed here was caused by "Political Correctness."When are we going to realize to speak and act the truth.

Huge rant for Economy

Huge rant for Economy Sanitation of Martinez and a warning to Columbia County residents. Avoid using this company. It has been 3 week since my trash was picked up despite repeated calls to them. I was always promised "somebody will go by today". Well it ain't happened. I am sure some other company will appreciate my business.

AJC sez...4 accused by feds don't fit the profile...heheh...no joke!!

The article goes on to say that castor beans dried down will only create a powder that isn't the killing type....so the plan is not as deadly as first thought......
Gingrich is saying it will end up with Gingrich & Romney in the election...I just wonder if he is going for the VP slot...

For river.. Deaths caused by

For river..

Deaths caused by ingestion of castor plant seeds are rare, partly because of the indigestible capsule, and partly because ricin can be digested (although it is resistant).[7] The pulp from eight beans is considered toxic for an adult.[8] A solution of saline and glucose has been used to treat ricin overdose.[9] Rauber and Heard have written that close examination of early 20th century case reports indicates that public and professional perceptions of ricin toxicity "do not accurately reflect the capabilities of modern medical management."[10]

Nahhh.....I don't think castor beans will take you down river...

If the seed is swallowed

If the seed is swallowed without chewing, and there is no damage to the seed coat, it will most likely pass harmlessly through the digestive tract. However, if it is chewed or broken and then swallowed, the ricin toxin will be absorbed by the intestines.

Just DON'T chew.

Food talk has me thinking

Food talk has me thinking about supper (you are from the south if you eat breakfast, dinner, and supper). I am leaning towards pork chops baked with apple sauce, tater salad, and string beans with a hint of vinegar and just a little sugar. I was informed earlier I am the designated cook for tonight.

Cobalt back, Good news from that there Pre-Op talk meeting. ( My first one ever). Walked in with no pain except when trying to reach above my head and this sweet lady said I will be in extreme pain for 3 to 5 days after they hook up the rubber bands that I tore 3 1/2 months ago. Are you smart to go from no pain to extreme pain. Don't make sense to me.

"I just thought of something, got to get stocked up on Crown Royal Reserve."

You have good taste my friend! I don't drink it because it is TOO smooth, and I have a tendency to overindulge. I stick with something with a little more bite that I will just take small sips, eat ice, etc.
