Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

WHY DO GUNS have to be regulated, you ask? Why, would you be one of the people who need to be barred from having one or a hundred?

IT WAS REPORTED that GRU was considering remodeling the King and Sibley mills for student housing purposes. Has anyone asked the owners about the asbestos and lead paint content in the buildings? This cleanup could cost in the millions.

THE CITY OF Hephzibah wants to build a charter school. That’s cool. On Windsor Springs Road in the city of Hephzibah, commissioners purchased the old elementary school. But why? It is a safety hazard, overgrown with weeds and brush, varmints of every kind. Where are zoning enforcement, fire inspectors and the Georgia Environmental Protection Division? Oh, that’s right; it’s time to reopen the haunted house for Halloween.

I LOOKED THROUGH all three days of the Spotted photos for Arts in the Heart trying to find pictures of the actual event. Ninety-five percent of the photos are of patrons cheesing for the camera. Please find some photographers who are interested in taking pictures of event happenings and not just cute girls in tank tops with tattoos.

PRESIDENT OBAMA is willing to negotiate with North Korea, China, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, the Palestinians, Hamas, the Taliban, al-Qaida, the Muslim Brotherhood and just about any other communist, socialist or terrorist group.

I FIND IT interesting that many historical documents are not subjected to the same critique as the Holy Bible. When was the last time Plato’s Republic, Caesar’s History of the Gallic War, Homer’s Iliad or Odyssey, or even the writings of the world’s various religions scrutinized and criticized as much as God’s Word?
