Mail Call

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:

"Ninety-five percent of the male population has committed adultery and lied to their wives. Almost all of the female population has flirted and/or seduced. What was it that the Lord said to the self-righteous about casting stones?"

"I have two questions. Do the employees at the VA Center get doctor appointments before the veterans and do non-military experienced employees get care at the VA Center? Please answer these questions for me. I would really appreciate it."


"I just want to comment on Bev Hartle saying that she's going to open up her sub shop again. I've tried other ones but they don't come up to hers. Good luck Bev."

"I'm calling about the Mail Call for the soda can tabs and to the person that has two bags of them. I'm interested in them because my church is collecting them for dialysis. My phone number is 301-223-8155. Could you please call me?"

"I want to thank the two very good Samaritans that helped me when I fell on the Ames parking lot on Feb. 2. The man in the white pickup truck that called the ambulance and the lady who helped my daughter to pick me up and put me on the car seat. I thank God for you both and I pray that God will bless you both. Thank you again so very much."

"Could anyone please tell me where to find scrapbooks? I need them for a school project for young children."

"Hi Mail Call. Did Roscoe Bartlett ever get those Playboy magazines out of the Army PXs? I sure hope so. Man, I'm really worried about that. I sure hope he did."

"Hi Mail Call. I read in your column the other day about how expensive it was to ship packages and I agree. It's very expensive and if you check the retirement that these truck drivers get for driving trucks and delivering packages, you'd understand why it was so high. Some of them get more retirement than I made while I was working and I made over $35,000 a year when I was working."

"Is there a bus trip going to the Biltmore Estates between April 3 and May 3 for the Festival of Flowers? Please call 301-432-8363."

"Hi Mail Call. I'd like to reply to the person who made the statement about Calvary Temple and Benny Hinn on 'NBC Dateline' and his admitting that he was a fraud. I don't know where you get your information but you need to go back to that well and draw some clear water. Also about calling people idiots, you should go back and re-examine your own life before calling other people idiots."

"On Jan. 23 between 4 p.m. and 1 a.m. someone took my gray Ford Windstar van for a ride in the West Washington area. If you know who had my van or how they got my keys, please call Officer Saur of the Hagerstown Police Department at 301-739-8577."

"To all you soccer moms who elected Bill Clinton when your children were 12 and 13 years old. Wake up, it's six years later and these children are now 18 and 19, eligible for the draft. We should change the name from soccer moms to sucker moms. God help your children in the Middle East war that is coming."

"Instead of renaming the Washington International Airport the Ronald Reagan Airport they ought to name it the Nancy Reagan Airport because she ran the White House when he was in there and he didn't do anything."

"This is to the person that said Karla Faye Tucker is in Heaven now. I really don't think so because she was a murderer and they don't go to Heaven, they go to that dark, dark place none of the rest of us wants to go. I don't think it mattered if she was reborn or saved or whatever you or she wants to call it because of the fact that she took not only one life but two and people like that don't go to the good places in the hereafter."

"Go Karla, go Karla. I believe if I'm right, I think you're supposed to laugh at death and cry at births. So to the one that wrote about Karla Faye Tucker's death is just a typical liberal - don't know what they're talking about."

"Hi Mail Call. I don't even know who Benny Hinn is. Now should I feel good or bad about that?"

"I was wondering if the County Commissioners read Mail Call. It's about the only way you can talk to them if you don't have the time to go in there and talk to them. If the city wants to have $840,000 back because they're subsidizing the water and sewer then why should I subsidize the water and sewer when I live in the county and have my own well and septic? There must be something wrong or the County Commissioners wouldn't be trying to get a law passed in Annapolis to keep this money that they're subsidizing."
