Rants and raves

Comments from readers:

RE: COMBINING ASU AND GHSU: Nobody has asked the college students who are working to get their degrees and want to have the title of their college on their diploma. Nobody has asked the professors or teachers about whether they want this.

THIS IS A MAJOR rant to the James Brown Arena. The RiverHawks are an exciting hockey team; they are doing everything they can to grow the sport in the area and make a night at the James Brown Arena a fun family night – until you want to purchase some concessions. Way to gouge the public on concessions at the arena. You’re not at an MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA event; you’re minor league hockey. Wake up, Augusta, and stop killing your fan base.

WHAT IS MR. ROMNEY’S first name? I don’t think his mother named him Mitt. I think it may be short for Mitchell. If anybody knows, I would really like to know.

THESE PEOPLE SAYING Mr. James is doing such a wonderful job don’t know what they are talking about. Chief Willis was fire chief and EMA manager. Mr. James is not doing the EMA; an assistant chief is doing that.

SINCE DR. AZZIZ flew into town, there have been changes. First the name of MCG. Then he wanted to close the street. Now he is going after ASU. I guess the name of the new college should be the Azziz Medical & Arts of Augusta Georgia. Right.

PATHETIC THAT ONLY three commissioners showed up to interview David Greene for fire chief. It looks like the rest already had their mind made up.

SUGGESTED WORD OF THE DAY: Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing and the most capable of reproducing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. Kind of defines our society, doesn’t it? What a crying shame.

HOW CAN A READER (say) MCG should merge with Paine College when Paine is a private Methodist college? It is not owned or funded by the state of Georgia, but by the Methodist church. I am sure Dr. Azziz would love to take over Paine, but tell all of the dreamers to dream on!
