Mail Call for 12/12



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 during the week. The Mail Call number is 301-791-6236.

You are welcome to leave a recorded message on any subject, but some calls will be screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:




"I live on Avon Road. I walk two small dogs on Salem Avenue and Church Street and around back to my home. Since it has been cold out, there have been people just letting their dogs loose out in the yard instead of walking them, since it is colder. I think it would be a good idea to remind everyone that there is a leash law. You wouldn't believe how many large dogs have gotten out after my little dogs. It would be helpful, if you love your dogs as much as I do, please take care of them."

"I am trying to locate some apples locally. They are called Crispin or Mutsu."




"I am calling in response to the person who called in to Mail Call that is on a fixed income and is looking for a computer. I have an idea for you. If you would like to talk to me about this, my number is 301-393-4356. I was the same way as far as the prices, they were way out of my price range as well. If you would give me a call I would be more than glad to talk to you about this."




"This is concerning the president. If Al Gore gets it, that's great. But if Bush gets it, it is wrong. If Al gets it, it would have been gotten fairly. If Bush gets it, it would have been gotten wrongly. I think someone cheated for him. I think his brother wants to become president one day also. They will find out what happened and they will put them to the courts."




"To the person who can't draw unemployment. I just happen to be one of those people who is drawing it right now. Not by my choice, but by the closing of a plant. So before you go running your mouth to the paper, check out things to see if you know what you are talking about."




"Who says crime doesn't pay, just ask the voters down in Florida."




"After hearing two Florida Supreme Court rulings for Gore, it seems quite evident that if they could give Al Gore the presidency, they would do it."




"I am interested in knowing where I can find a fresh killed turkey for Christmas dinner. Leave a message in Mail Call. I would appreciate it."




"Again Washington County Board of Education has asked us to put on our rose colored glasses and accept their explanation on why the dropout rate is so high. And again The Daily Mail puts on their rose colored glasses and reports the Board of Education's side of the story. Has it ever occurred to anyone at the newspaper to interview the dropouts? You may be surprised to find out just how many of those former students were encouraged by school administrators to drop out. If the newspaper took off their rose colored glasses, you might see the other side of the story."




"What is going on the Dual Highway? It is a wreck. There are so many bumps on the road, you can't even drive on it. I wish they would hurry up and finish it, instead of worrying about the other stuff."




"I am tired of seeing all the people on the street asking for food or money. There are plenty of places hiring and they can't get a job? That is why I don't give them any money. They need to get a job and stop asking for the help all the time."

"Can someone tell me how I can get a job with the city, so I can get my own personal truck and ride around all day long like the rest of the city workers do. That is all I see are the city workers riding around all day and the taxpayers pay for it."




"To the person who was looking for the popcorn balls. They are being made and sold by the Greencastle Presbyterian Church on West Baltimore Street in Greencastle, Pa. The phone number is 717-597-8333 and you can order some."




"I am wondering why the churches aren't doing anything to help in the fight against the drugs in town? It seems to me that it is very rampant."

-Hagerstown
