HERE WE GO AGAIN. South Augusta is the last to get everything. It had the mayor’s forum already passed over the city with the exception of the Diamond Lakes area. We are in south Augusta. How come we’re being treated like stepchildren? We are always the last people to get anything.

THIS IS A RANT FOR the lady in Golden Corral on April 4. Honey, we feel your pain. It’s awful to have a disabled child. But sweetheart, the world does not revolve around your every single mood. You were rude. You called managers names. You were rude to the customers and the employees. You need to keep your hiney home and cook supper because you are one miserable lady.

IT’S UNFORTUNATE, your article about farmers not granted individual storm aid. This country probably doesn’t understand what hunger is all about. It’s disgusting. Farmers should be first in this country.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED to Richmond County schools? A lot of teachers are breaking the laws with drugs and other unlegal things and then my 11-year-old grandson in the sixth grade gets jumped on by an eighth-grader, beat down to the ground. All the students are calling the teacher, who’s nowhere around. What kind of school system do we have? God help us.

SUNDAY, MARCH 30, at Cracker Barrel in Evans, you paid for my lunch. What a blessing you were. I will never forget your kindness. May God bless you. I appreciate it greatly.

I WENT TO A neighborhood meeting and lots of neighbors complained about barking dogs. There’s a saying, “Only a dead dog is an obedient dog.” Keep your puppies close and keep them quiet.

I’M NOT SO GULLIBLE as to believe this thing with the plane. Ever hear about Diego Garcia?

I’D LIKE TO THANK Glynn Moore for his article about his dad in the April 7 Chronicle. Wonderful, wonderful article.

WITH ALL THE LIES that are being told in the capital, they should make April Fool’s Day a national holiday.

WHEN THEY HAD the ice storm they warned people against price gouging. I guess the Masters doesn’t count. People are paying $400 for an $80 room. Now, if they allow price gouging during the Masters, why should they exempt anybody else?

My prayers to the families

My prayers to the families and surgeons in Pennsylvania. A school stabbing incident. I wonder if Obama will surround himself with kids and suggest we register and ban certain knives-he would be a hypocrite not to, as it would be inconsistent and irrational otherwise in following his logic to deal with weapons. WHO suggest regulating alcohol consumption, guns and knives to deal with violence so I imagine he will suggest to go after the knives.

Farmers don't get ice storm aid? What you say? :)

To the Ranter about no farmer aid: Farmers who grow row crops don't feed the world by planting in the woods.

The only farmers who should get storm aid are those who are 'tree farmers.' There is hope for the tree farmers who clear cut their damaged timber and replant. Some disaster relief in the form of replanting monies is in the works.

The people you really need to

The people you really need to blame, Bizkit, is the morons in Congress that won't pass a law getting psychotic, disturbed children out of our schools.

The school districts are stuck with these psycho kids, they know that they are dangerous but there's nothing they can do- thanks to "mainstreaming".

Think of this as a Network Information faucet dripping

up 64K of data in a millisecond.

A millisecond is one thousandth of a second so it is possible but not likely to siphon off 64+MB a second

64kb can hold about 30 pages of text,
64mb holds about 30,000 pages of text.

That is how much leakage the hole "could" have allowed a second.

Corgimom is Correct

School systems need to be able to expel disruptive students. No alternative school, no sending government teachers to the students home, no special tutoring, no special internet classes. Nothing.

Corgimom you are saying

Corgimom you are saying something right.

Sweet son

I was wondering what damage open field farmers suffered from storm debris. I am not so certain tree farmers should expect help from the feds on the interior of their property. That seems to be a business risk to me.
