Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

 

THEY SHOULDN’T HAVE to ponder solutions to the violence downtown; the lighting and the cameras should go into effect immediately. There should also be a curfew downtown.

 

TO THE FOOD STAMP RANTER: You don’t know if I am taking my neighbors, parents or grandparents shopping. You need to look more closely before you make a statement.

 

RANT TO OUR local judicial system. Very often people are arrested for theft of lost or mislaid property. But let a local attorney get arrested for this, and you have several other attorneys willing to help her free of charge and will probably get her charges dropped. Are these same attorneys willing to help everyone arrested on these same charges free of charge? What happened to this attorney’s case?

 

RICHMOND COUNTY IS not the only county in Georgia that is black and poor, but it is the only county that furloughs its students and teachers. Maybe they need to ask around and see what other counties are doing to balance their budget.

 

WE IN HEPHZIBAH do not want this new trash service that is being forced on us, and our city officials should be ashamed to force us to take it. A lot of our neighbors are on fixed incomes and cannot afford this service. Shame on all involved.

 

I MAY BE WRONG, but I promise to get to the real facts of the Scott Dean trial and his last appeal. This is wrong. Trust me, I am getting the Innocence Project involved. I am all for justice, but this is dead wrong.

 

RANT TO COMCAST CABLE. Why did the Na­tional Weather Service interrupt programming multiple times on May 9 to broadcast a missing 88-year-old man’s disappearance?

 

SAVE MCG in Augusta, Don’t vote for Nathan Deal.

 

I AM CHINESE. If Chi­nese people were committing the majority of violent crimes, I would be ashamed.

 

ONCE AGAIN, SOUTH CAROLINA voters confirm every politician’s favorite adage: There’s no electorate better than an uninformed electorate.

 

RANT TO THE National Or­ganization of Women. Why didn’t you have me burn my high heels instead of my bras? Now I’m crippled and have sagging breasts.
