THANKS TO THE CONGRESSMAN who can’t even spell “Brown,” next November I will be casting my first non-Republican vote in 93 years.

ANOTHER POINT OF
illogic: not providing officers with Tasers. Why are higher-ups willing to flap their jaws with praise of a deceased officer but so unwilling to provide the most minimal of equipment to preserve their lives?

HELLO? IF THERE are going to be parade closings of roads on bus routes, can someone from the city please get word to Mobility/Augusta Public Transit so they can plan the alternate routes for the sake of drivers and bus riders?

TO THE READER commenting on transit of students hopefully to downtown: Many students already have that option. ASU, Paine and Augusta Tech students already pay a transportation fee that covers them riding the public transit buses wherever they want. MCG has their own private shuttle among the various areas of their campus.

SOME PEOPLE TREAT waiting rooms and restaurants like it’s their own private living room –
staying all day long and leaving a mess for someone to clean up. Please don’t even throw a TV into the mix!

ONE MAN GETS 10 years in prison for “enticing a minor,” but Scott Richardson’s suspected killer was known to be violent and was out on the street.

WHY WILL THE CHRONICLE not print my comments on the weather? The government, primarily the military, is messing with the weather. Floods and droughts, maximum snowfall, no hurricanes in the U.S. since Katrina (which was an experiment gone wrong,) cloud seeding, machines controlling the jet stream. Some are calling it global warming, but that won’t fit. Ask them about that place in Alaska, shuttered from the world with a high fence and guards with big guns. Can someone please find out? Other than Jesse Ventura.

DOES IT REALLY take this long to investigate the Warren/Hancock football fiasco? How is the coach? I hope he is well and is able to still do his job and not be disabled. He had a horrible injury. Could you please do a story about him when the investigation is over?

IF THE CHRONICLE is going to continue to increase the cost of the paper, you need to add some other sections to the newspaper.

Rant#1. So who is the alternative?

Rant #7..There likely is no such place in Alaska. Jesse Ventura suspects a conspiracy if the person sitting next to him sneezes.

I have a friend, an older man, who doesn't sleep well and listens to 3 AM radio programs. The things those people say are enough to make one laugh...

*Shave and a Haircut*
*
An old man walks into the barbershop for a shave and a haircut, but he
tells the barber he can't get all his whiskers off because his cheeks are
wrinkled from age.*
*The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the shelf and tells
him to put it inside his cheek to spread out the skin.*
*When he's finished, the old man tells the barber that was the cleanest
shave he's had in years.*
*But he wanted to know what would have happened if he had swallowed that
little ball.*
*The barber replied, "Just bring it back in a couple of days like everyone
else does".*

Hehheh...think about it!!

I bought a computer at Sams a few months ago. Don't ask me anything about it because I don't know. It was the next to the most expensive one is the reason I got it. Heh. One thing, though, I love the big monitors. You can put everything on 150% magnification and it fills the screen perfectly. It makes things so much easier.

Whatever Newt's wife is using

Whatever Newt's wife is using on her hair, we should give it to soldiers. They wouldn't need to wear helmets with that stuff.

Whenever a woman's hair looks like that.....it means one thing..

If I had been at the bar where Nikki Haley used to attend meetings it would have been a good thing she was a Republican.

Give the cops phasers but

Give the cops phasers but tell them to put them on stun. Hope the coach is okay as well and get the skinny on what happened under the Friday nite lights.

Re: public transit being used for shuttling students.

The school should be providing shuttle service that is exclusive to students. Their routes limited to school related destinations. Students pay good money and shouldn't be pushed off into public transit to get from destination to destination. It also taxes the public transit system to run those routes. Students need to get from point a to b 3-4 times a day just for classes, not to mention other locations they would typically visit daily (cafeteria, library, etc). It's far more logical to seperate public bussing and university shuttles.

and a good morning too. :)

I don't think it is her REAL hair. If the hair never changes it is usually fake, or as the liberals like to say,"faux".
