Rants and raves



Comments from readers:

I WOULD LIKE people in St. John's Tower to mind their own business. They talk entirely too much.

SINCE RICHMOND COUNTY Board of Education spokeswoman Mechelle Jordan will no longer accept questions on the Larke vacation leave deal, perhaps she'll refund her daily income. Isn't response to the taxpayer the primary justification for her employment?

THIS IS ABOUT the student who might be deported. I read in The Chronicle about what this person said, that she should be deported. They ought to be ashamed. That child was brought over here when she was 2 years old; she had nothing to do with it. I think it's a shame and a disgrace that people have to do this. I think they should let that child stay. She didn't have anything to do with what her mother did. If I had the money, I would pay for her to get a lawyer.

I WOULD LIKE to give a rave to whoever came up with the suggestion of making a large and much improved heart center at University Hospital. We have needed that for so long, much longer than the new maternity center they put there. It's hard for elderly people who have heart trouble. ... I'd just like to say thank you, and I hope it comes through real soon.

ONE OF OUR commissioners said no to naming our ballpark for Ty Cobb. Said he was a racist. Would he like to change the name of Strom Thurmond Lake? Seems he was more than a racist.

THIS IS A RANT for the person who put up a Share the Road sign with bicycles on Wrightsboro Road from Belair Road to Grovetown. They're lucky enough we can get two cars side by side, never mind sharing the road with a bicycle. They should not be on these roads.

I JUST WOULD LIKE to know what has happened to America when a child cannot go to McDonald's and play in the playground without someone stealing their shoes from the sneaker keeper.
