REGARDING SUNDAY’S editorial: Where was The Chronicle’s moral outrage at the lack of transparency in the Bush administration?

JUST WHAT THIS country needs: another U.S. senator in his 70s. Be­ware of ambitious older men. He should retire and take up fishing.

WHY DO WE ONLY hear about people protesting guns and what they have done, but you never report what the Con­stitution declares is our rights as citizens?

RANT TO THE gray car with South Carolina plates that was speeding past me on Jan. 31. I was given your ticket by a Richmond County patrol officer. Also another rant for the patrol officer, who was not paying attention to who was actually doing the speeding! What goes around comes around with time.

SYLVIA, BRAVO to your Easter Sunday column! Great suggestion for replacing the former chimney’s name.

A HUGE RAVE to Thomp­son Building and Wreck­ing Co. for donating the nonperishable food from Laney supermarket to Golden Har­vest Food Bank. You are all angels of mercy to this community. You should be proud of yourselves.

ABOUT TWO WEEKS ago I was at Kroger on Wrightsboro Road. Long story short, I had replaced my debit card but forgot to reset my PIN. I had almost $60 in groceries to pay for, and I had to step outside to call the bank. There was this angel behind me with two very young children. … When I came back into the store, she was gone … just after she had paid for my groceries. … Just when you give up on the world, something gives you hope. God bless you..

I SAW A CITY TRUCK with a UGA logo on it at the Augusta Common today. This is an outrage! An insult! A slap in the face! There are three choices: Display logos for all public colleges in Georgia, display no logos to avoid showing preferential treatment, or display a logo that is acceptable to all: Georgia Tech.

U.S. CITIZENS having guns is what has kept this country safe this far, and if they take our guns they threaten our lives. It is one of the reasons other countries don’t invade us.

THANKS, RICHMOND County, for taking out the trash on Alden Drive. Long time coming. Only a couple more druggies left partying weekends. Haul them all to prison with the rest.

To the person who said "....or display a logo that is acceptable to all: Georgia Tech." on the city vehicles. Hey, I thought there were already Georgia Tech stickers on all the city's trash trucks! I think that's enough!

EBT CARDS

Last night I actually got sick watching a program about the dang cards.....they showed how easily anyone could change out the card for cash.......then spend it on cigs-drugs-gambling-whatever.....how can we continue with this crap....really....how much longer can we...why don't we just throw the dollars off the highest building & let them have a free for all....we might as well.
Do it during Masters week in downtown on Broad St....

The Masters

I also saw a great program about the National.....about the beginning & how desperate they were for cash....it seems Clifford Roberts & Bobby Jones had a 1 track mind to make it the great adventure it is today......the magnificent & mind bending beauty of that golf course.....they said that the place was made to have a golf course on it....where there is a will there is a way....I can see the same thing south of the Gordon Hy....stay tuned my friends...

Scalping tickets

I was reading about the Allen Caldwell tragedy and the article said Zell Miller was going to get the law changed. Does anyone know if that happened?

Hey Webmaster.....I get it.....ALDI pays you money to advertise. Does that entitle them to cover up the menu bar? They are new to the market here and I'm already sick of their obnoxious ads.

@ dichotomy

I have spoken to several people about that. We are waiting on corporate to fix it. I don't know why it is taking so long.
