Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from readers:

IS THERE ANY PLACE that wants old Christmas ornaments, trees (artificial, of course), etc.? It seems a shame to throw them out, and many older people have too many.

A RANT FOR the person who complained that her daughter was picked up for a DUI. I am thankful that the police did catch her before she had the chance to kill someone. I hope it is a nightmare; it should be.

I am sure the families of drunken-driving victims will extend their deepest sympathies that your daughter is living a nightmare.

IT’S INTERESTING that an editorial writer bemoans the state of society two days after The Chronicle promoted an Augusta RiverHawks hockey game with a picture showing two players fighting. The next day, the leading page of the sports section showed referees separating fighting players.

A BIG RAVE TO ALL who came out and supported Laney High School for the dedication of the new gym last week in honor of coach Bonner and coach Smart.

WAKE UP, Columbia County parents. Your schools have been affected by Section 8 housing the past several years.

A RANT FOR the irate shopper who went off on the staffers at Bed, Bath and Beyond. She thought they orally greeted a customer and skipped her. Lady, get the chip off of your shoulder; you embarrassed your daughter.

RANTS FOR THE Bulldogs: Playing LSU is a little different from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, New Mexico State, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, etc. They played three good teams all year and got spanked each time. They still had two articles on the front page and four on Page 6. Georgia Southern won its playoff game in the second round and was on Page 7 with one article.

RANTS TO THE Dawgs: Sanders Commings should learn not to run his mouth before the game.

DON’T BLAME ALL the denizens of the Cherry Tree community for the crime. There are many fine people there who had children who got out of those projects. The Augusta Chronicle has written stories about them. It’s the bad ones there that need to be rooted out. I say that for public housing, there ought to be drug testing and searches of all facilities for illegal weapons and any drugs. Get metal detectors and drug-sniffing dogs in there.

"IS THERE ANY PLACE that

"IS THERE ANY PLACE that wants old Christmas ornaments, trees (artificial, of course), etc.? It seems a shame to throw them out, and many older people have too many."

I'd imagine that Salvation Army and/or Goodwill would accept such things.

The secret to success is

The secret to success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it

"Always borrow money from a pessimist -they don't expect to be paid back.":

"Suicidal twin kills sister by mistake!!"

"The hypochondriac's epitaph: NOW do you believe me?????"

"I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up the idea - they have no holidays."
(Henny Youngman)

"Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't go to yours."
(Yogi Berra)

"Roses are red, violets are blue,
Some poems rhyme,
But this one doesn't."
"When you come to a fork in the road, take it." (Yogi Berra)

"I have enough money to last me for the rest of my life - unless I buy
something."

Not yelling and screaming - like the passengers in his car."

SeenIt, your opening line is

SeenIt, your opening line is the best. One of the biggest political office holders in Macon once told me her secret was being a sincere BS'er.

What did AlmostGone post that

What did AlmostGone post that was so over the top that it provoked deletion? I didn’t report AlmostGone, I never report anybody for anything; free speech and all that.

SeenIt, I wonder what

SeenIt, I wonder what happened to the general the Chronicle hired to be its president? When does he show up? I wonder if he will start a blog and comment with us like Don Bailey did?

I want the General to walk in the Chronicle and do what you said a general should do. Start cracking the whip. Straighten Mike Ryan up. Then turn that whip on Sean for stiffling our creativity. Fine people for typos. Make them stay late for stupid headlines. Make them pay to park on the TEE Center ground floor parking deck. Make them all do physical training.

Hahaha. By the way, I can

Hahaha. By the way, I can actually tell which bobblehead is which. Each one has its own personality. Yep, I had a surprising e-mail thing with Ryan once, but in his defense he was taking up for Sean...I suppose. But, heck, I wasn't disrespecting Sean really. He wasn't even on duty that weekend. Maybe just a misunderstanding, but I never got an apology. Basically, I defended the Chronicle commenters and he defended his people. Nothing wrong with that, but it wasn't me attacking anyone, on the other hand he.....

seenit, like your new door

seenit, like your new door knocker. We get those kind around here all the time. And the exercise machine is the invention of the year. Noticed the pink color also-rekon that was by design for certain people. And for those that report commenters, I say get a thicker skin, it will not hurt you. The comments are just someone else's take on the subject and we all have different feeling according to our situation in life. I like all the discussion and the fact that I can see all different ideas on the same subject even though I am a conservative to the bone and that will never change.

If Darrin Bell want to

If Darrin Bell want to express his liberal ideology and support wealth redistribution, he should do so on the Opinion page of the Chronicle as opposed to putting his crummy Candorville in the Comics Section.
