Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

THE TRUTH “will” come out now about that sneaky, snakey Mark Sanford. He lied until just before the court date to THEN admit he violated the residence of his ex-wife. Then paid only $5,000 in legal fees. He cost the election of the people of S.C. into tricking 54 percent to vote for his lying hide. They need to throw him out and put Colbert in!

RAVES TO THE Georgia Regents University Admissions staff! They are very knowledgeable, understanding and friendly, especially to freshmen who are unfamiliar with the complicated admissions process. They are wonderful and worthy of much praise!!!

I HAVE A BIG RAVE for Commissioner Lockett for directing me to the Augusta Cares to voice my concerns about kids playing basketball in the streets. Not only does this impede the flow of traffic, it’s a safety issue. Also, I work very hard and at night I do not wish to hear a group of teens playing ball at all hours of the night in the middle of the street.

EACH STORE AND place of business needs to train employees to be proactive in theft prevention. Cameras just sit there and do no good if they are not watched or checked. Walmart has greeters but no one who could walk around in an odd pattern around the store so that someone does not have time to pack a suitcase of 13 cell phones?

MS. PICKETT IS right. There has been a loss of campus beauty that has been ignored. The upkeep of some minimal appearance is important to the Summerville neighborhood we live amidst. So if you are going to use other grounds crews, then have them work “some” time at the Summerville campus.

I APPLAUD THE move to cut the threshold for drunken driving to 0.05 blood alcohol level matching what exists in most other countries. Now if we could only come to grips with the epidemic of texting while driving. The frightening statistic is that it makes you 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash if you text while driving. Stop it before it’s too late!

DR. KERMIT GOSNELL and his conviction brings the issue of illegal and unsafe abortions to the forefront. One has to wonder how many more Gosnells are out there practicing freely with a total disregard for life. Isn’t it time that we gave the abortion issue a second look?
