Keep those letters coming

First, relative to the much-despised name of “Georgia Regents University”:

I believe the effort to get the name changed or altered would be better served if each school – Georgia Health Sciences University and Augusta State University – organized a letter-writing campaign by the students and staffs. Then, direct those letters to Gov. Nathan Deal and the Board of Regents directly. When I say “letter-writing,” I mean just that – i.e., use pen and paper. A handwritten letter carries a lot more weight. Keep the letter short and to the point.

If each student and staff member would do that not just once but weekly, I can assure you results will follow.

Second: Most of us are shocked at how the Richmond County sheriff’s primary runoff turned out, but that can be corrected. In the general election, forget party and vote for the best-qualified candidate. Just place their resumes and backgrounds side-by-side, and it becomes abundantly clear. There is only one candidate who is truly qualified, so do your homework and vote with your brain and not the party. Come on, Reagan Democrats, use your brains.

I'd like to be among the first to congratulate Dr. Azziz on his nomination as
president of the U. Of Florida. I would hope he's already packing, and will be
out of here on his way to Gainesville very soon. We certainly don't want
this idiot here in Augusta any longer, ruining our Augusta State University, to feed his overgrown ego. I would hope the Board Of Rejects will be sure to collect the $45,000 he wasted on his phoney
"survey" about the new name. Hopefully, the Board Of Rejects will now
get about correcting this new name very quickly before money if further lost on signs, stationary, cards, etc. Don't let the door hit you on the way out Dr. Ricardo. We don't like Florida that much anyway, but great
if Fla. can take Azziz off our hands here. Bon Voyage Dr. Ricardo!!
