Rants and Raves



Comments from readers:

JAMES GALLMAN AND the South Carolina NAACP have naturally moved to Georgia because they don't want to go to a state that glorifies a symbol of division and treason. Mr. Gallman and his group should look at the state flag of Georgia.

HERE IS A rave for a gentleman who gave away four Lynx tickets to the opening game to a young couple and a senior couple. It is nice how some people still give and ask nothing in return.

SATURDAY IS no different from any other day. At 6 p.m. I want to see the news, not a football game.

SO WHAT IF the squirrels dig holes in your yard and eat a leaf or nut or two from your garden. Do you realize how much amusement and happiness they give to us shut-ins, watching them play and run?

WILL YOU PLEASE start printing Lowell Greenbaum's letters where they belong, on the comics page?

CYNTHIA McKINNEY is still trying to win the election she has already lost. She won't even make it in the Green Party. Why doesn't she go ahead and make her own party, called the Taliban?

THIS IS TO the person who called President Bush a draft dodger because he went into the National Guard. First, a draft dodger is one who does not go into the military (National Guard is military). Second, as a 22-year vet I am thankful for the people who do go into the reserves and National Guard to back up the active military.

THIS IS A RANT for the city politics. We had good trash pickup before we were forced to go with the city's favorite. Now we sort our trash and it sits on the street because only half of it is picked up. We have recycle bins that don't get emptied, but we still pay for it with our taxes. Wake up, somebody. Do your job, or let us go back to our own pickup.

A RANT FOR THOSE supporting Ed McIntyre: It is the height of irresponsibility to be supporting him. You should trust him with your own money before trusting him with someone else's.
