Rants and raves

Comments from readers:

YOU HAVE to admire the Israelis since they mean what they say. They have taken decisive action after their “red line” was crossed. In January and again recently they have performed airstrikes in Syria on weapons shipments bound for Hezbollah. Good for them!

 

TO THE 82-YEAR-OLD in the wheelchair: The unfortunate tendency to lawsuits makes it impossible for some extra services to be done off premises, so I suspect that is the reason why MCG can no longer send someone out to the parking lot for you. Someone needs to help transport you at least far enough into the hospital or doctor’s office and to get you out, too.

 

WHAT IS GOING ON in Syria is none of our business. It’s time to bring our troops home and put America first.

 

MORE THAN $280,000 worth of things that GRU President Ricardo Azziz did to the home without approval? That money could have helped out some little bit for the low-paid staff with no raises for several years.

 

RAVE FOR THE WORK of Operation Thunder in cutting down on drunk drivers. Now, if they can only roll one out for downtown a bit to catch the crooks who are attacking people out there at least two days in a row.

 

LOOK, BAR OWNERS, if cuts in your alcohol sales mean fewer drunk drivers, you will have to live with that. Either that or have a better system with the taxis or other services to have someone drive the drunks home.

 

OPERATION ROLLING Thunder ... Though catching DUIs, drug abusers is a good thing, I got caught up in it. I’m a senior citizen living on a fixed income and a careful driver. I see in Sunday’s paper many people got warnings while I got a speeding ticket. I wonder why this is? Since I got the ticket I’ve been trying to find out how much this operation cost me but no one has been able to tell me. I have provided the citation number and my driver’s license and no one has a record for it. What’s up with this mess? I am trying to budget to pay this thing.

 

DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA does not need a bus to take Fort Gordon soldiers to the bars on Friday and Saturday nights. What downtown needs is more police patrolling the streets.
