Rants and raves



Comments from readers:

THIS IS A rave for the column by Leonard Pitts. I think he is the best columnist in The Augusta Chronicle. He says the right thing at the right time. I really find his articles stimulating.

THIS IS A rant for The Augusta Chronicle. You ask people to write in with their opinions on certain issues, but you don't want to print the ones that you don't think need to be printed. I have sent in several and have not seen them. I guess you won't print this, either.

THIS IS A rant for Mr. Cook, who owns Silver Lining. He said he saw the type of people he wants to see at this First Friday. He just wants to attract wealthy Caucasian Augustans downtown. This was a snub to African-Americans.

THIS IS A rant. Halloween night was sad for many kids because in the Sibley Road area there were grown men snatching children's trick-or-treat bags and going to an empty lot and pouring the candy into their book bags. Someone needs to get a grip on their older children because they are making it very difficult for the little ones to enjoy the holiday.

I JUST READ the article in the Nov. 1 paper on Ronnie Few. Apparently, the man has moved on with his life, and we should move on as well. The man has done what he needs to do in Augusta and has moved on.

I AM SICK to death reading about Ronnie Few. Who cares if he is looking for a job in Michigan? Who cares as long as he doesn't come back here.

THE LAST TIME the civic center was sold out was when the Gaither Homecoming concert was here. Why weren't they invited back?

I DON'T REMEMBER reading anything in the Bible that gives Christians the right to criticize other people.
