Mail Call for 11/13



"I want to thank my mom and dad, Bill and Martha, for always being there. If I ever win the lottery or ever come into any money, they wouldn't have to worry for nothing."




"It is wonderful to see that the Newcomer house is finally going to be restored to Mr. Chaney's wishes. Best of luck to you, Mr. Chaney."




"I think there is a serious problem with the flu shot this year. They say there is a shortage and the senior citizens should get them first. Yet, the doctor's offices are not the ones giving the flu shots. They can't get their quantity. But if you are willing to stand in line, you can go to Martin's and some other places and get your flu shot, of course, you are going to have to pay for it. But unfortunately, the senior citizens are not able to stand in line for hours. So therefore someone is making big bucks off of this program. The people who are going to suffer or even die are the senior citizens."

"When does the Boonsboro Ambulance Company send out their request for help? Every year, we have to go to them and ask them when are they going to do this. They should let us know, we shouldn't have to go to them. Don't they need the help, don't they want the membership? We want to know."




"Can anyone tell me how to release air from my pipes and spigots without calling a plumber? I already had a plumber, but I thought someone would have another answer, other than a plumber."




"I don't mind if a bank employee calls me by my first name, it just makes me feel good. Some of you people need to stop complaining about everything."




"To the lady that called about the bank teller calling her by her first name. If you want some respect and nice service, I suggest that you bank at the Hagerstown Trust Company."




"If every time someone votes and the person that is losing says 'that is not right, we are going to do it over.' What is the point in voting to begin with? No wonder the younger people don't go to the polls, I am with them."




"The one state where the vote is questioned, is the one state where his brother is the governor."




"I am 45 years old and I have been voting since I was 21. Why even bother to vote for a president if it doesn't count? I have voted for president for the last time unless they do away with the Electoral College."




"Just when we thought things couldn't get any worse in the election, we find out that it looks like there was a lot of shady dealings going on in Florida. Ballots turning up missing, machines that let you vote for more than one candidate, ballots that were drawn up and presented at the day of the election that were different than what people saw before the election. Sounds suspicious in a state where one of the guys that is running for president, his brother is governor. Makes you wonder and makes you want to question the whole system. Gore won the popular vote and he should become president. As far as Bush, keep saying that he won, he won. He thinks that we are just going to go along with it. If it was the other way around, the Republicans would be crying foul, too. This seems mighty suspicious."
