Mail Call

January 27, 1998

Mail Call

"This is to the individual in the East End of town who calls the SPCA for all the stray animals. I hope someone calls for your cat that you allow to stray all over the neighborhood. Maybe you'll know the feeling when your animal is missing - again."




"Yes, Mail Call. To the person that said they are not going to take a bath until everybody is voted out of office. Well, most people in Hagerstown don't take baths so you're really not sacrificing very much anyway."




"To the caller who's not going to take a bath, brush his teeth, shave or change his underwear until everyone of the County Commissioners are voted out of office. Well, isn't that election in November? Please don't walk around in my neighborhood."

"This call is in reference to the constant criticism of Mayor Bob Bruchey. First of all, I think he's doing an outstanding job. He has very little if any political experience and taking that into consideration, he's doing the best job he possibly can. The people of Hagerstown should focus on things that are much more important than Bob Bruchey's telephone call for a dollar or his meals that have exceeded this so-called limit by a few dollars. In addition, The Herald-Mail should stop running untrue stories about the mayor's wife and his personal habits. You're doing a great job, Mayor Bruchey. Keep up the good work, you've always got my vote."




"Why don't they give that girl immunity of prosecution? They just ought to give them all immunity of prosecution and that way maybe Clinton will admit to what he's done."




"Are the youth of the United States supposed to follow Bill Clinton's examples?"




"To the person who wants to know who Pork Chop is that lives in Boonsboro. Well, that's Meatloaf's brother."

"Local growers say don't fret about the mild weather. Well, I'm a local grower and I'd be concerned. You'd better mulch your bulbs and as for your flowering shrubs, it's a good chance you'll lose the flowers this year. My lilacs are so big with their buds that one good warm spell and they'll burst open and then the cold spell will kill them. This will be the second year that we will lose our lilacs. I don't know what they're doing but obviously they don't know what they are growing."




"To the person who wants to marry for insurance benefits only. That's insurance fraud so I suggest that you get a job that comes with insurance benefits and get your own insurance."




"Hi. I'm a fifteen-year-old who has gone to the ice rink in Hagerstown many times and I am the one that a group of girls tried to start a fight with along with some of my other friends. They were yelling and cussing at us and no one said anything to them for quite sometime. They were even yelling at my little brother and sent over a younger boy of 12 to push and shove him. The ice guards stood around just waiting for a fight to start. My friends and I stood up to them but wouldn't fight them. We were taught better than that and tried to walk away although they made it very hard to do so. On another occasion we were again cussed and yelled at when leaving the rink by some boys outside the front door. I enjoy going to the rink with my friends but there is a lot of cussing and fighting there even though all these calls to Mail Call try to say it's not going on. I know for a fact that it is and so do most of the other kids that go there. The adults don't see or hear all that's going on because like my mom, most of them just drop us off and then pick us up when it's over. So to all those people out there that don't see or hear this, I just want to say that it does happen way to often but I still enjoy going there and I hope that my friends and I can continue to go there for a long time because we do enjoy ice skating even though there are some nasty kids there too. Maybe they need adult ice guards there and more adults around or even better yet, why don't they hire a policeman to be there on the weekends to keep the troublemakers out. Thank you."




"To all those people that want to judge a fellow human being. Before you judge him, I suggest you take a long, a long hard look in the mirror."




"To all you so-called perfect people. Be careful when you walk by your closets tonight because some of that dirt just might spill out. Show me someone that doesn't sin and I'll show you a liar. Amen."




"To the fellow who's not gonna change his underwear until the Commissioners are thrown out, you're gonna have to take a bath or the Commissioners will know who you are cause you're gonna stink."
