Mail Call

January 09, 1998

Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line.

Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call weekdays at 301-791-6236.

Readers are welcome to leave their recorded message on any topic they choose, but some calls are screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:

"To the man, and I assume it was male, seeking professional, single women in Hagerstown but that can only seem to find tattoos and NASCAR fans, I do pity you. However, in due time you'll find the one you want but in the meantime don't talk beyond the others that aren't on your so-called level. You put your pants on the same way everyone else does and with your arrogance no woman would want you. Are there any single men out there that aren't so self-centered and egotistical?"


"This is in reference to Tuesday, Jan. 6 about the party where the woman was gone and there being a party in her house. Well, first of all I understand where you're coming from but they had to be invited. I can't see just any kids coming into a house to have a party and not be invited there. So you must have someone in your household that invited these people to come there for a party. Second of all, have you thought to let these kids' parents know that they did this? Some of us are loving, caring parents and would like to know if our children do wrong. Third, why don't you specify about where this location was so that we can find out if our children were there or not and so we can make them come and apologize and if any damage was done, pay for them?"

"Mail Call, we'd like to have the privilege to thank all the wonderful people who came and assisted the man that left the road on Eastern Boulevard on Saturday. We are thankful to have people like you who are good citizens. Also thanks to the Sheriff's Department and Mr. Sanders. May God richly bless you all."

"Hi Mail Call. This is for the fellow that wants to get a thing passed to hunt on Sunday cause he works six days a week. If he gets that passed then the next thing he'll want to do is to be able to sell his guns on Sunday, too. Thank you very much."

"Hello. Just a word of caution to anyone desiring to use the Washington County rubble landfill to deposit your yard waste, Christmas trees, etc. Make sure you have a 4-wheel vehicle to get out of that muddy, sloppy mess and plan on stopping by the car wash when you get out to get that gunk out from underneath your vehicle. It's just like a swamp."

"Hello Mail Call. We've heard enough on women and tattoos. That's enough."

"Yes. WHAG radio is one of the best kept secrets."

"On Sunday it was such a wonderful day so I decided to go up to Big Pool and get on this new bike trail but guess what? You have to park your car along the side of the road because they do not have the gates open. I'd like to know why the gates aren't open? It's supposed to be open to the public and all this money is going to waste because you can't get in there to park your car."

"Mail Call, I'd like to respond to the man that said he's hunted for 35 years and now he can't hunt because he's got to work six days a week to make ends meet so he'd like to hunt on Sundays. Well, if that man goes to work six days a week to make ends meet he might as well take that gun and shoot himself."

"To all of our Daily Mail paper customers in the Fairplay, Sharpsburg Pike, Downsville, Bakersville, and Dam No. 4 area, thanks for the many tips and gifts at Christmas. You paper carrier. Thanks again."

"Yeah. I just read in the paper where Walter Dill thinks his kids should get free skating. Well, if they give everybody free skating it isn't any wonder why the skating rink is in the red. Why should he be better than anybody else? Let him pay for his kids."

"Yeah, when they first started talking about this ice rink I thought it was a real good idea and I think I talked to an official and I think he told me my kids could skate there for free for the rest of their lives, too. So I'll bring over my kids. I don't see what's the difference in my kids and Walter Dill's kids, however, I do want to say your paper said the sign wasn't up. As of Tuesday evening of this week, the sign is up that says Walter Dill Drive and I just wanted someone to know that. Thank you Mail Call."

"Hi Mail Call. I cannot understand how any jury in the United States can't find Nichols guilty and not give this man the death sentence. This is a man who knew about the bomb, knew everything and could have called at any time and tipped somebody off, stopped it at any given time and he didn't do that. He let this happen. He had to know people were going to be killed and not only that, how can they say that this man doesn't deserve the death penalty if there was a third person and they feel sure there was? He's showing no remorse for what he did and yet he doesn't get the death penalty. I just don't understand it."
