Mail Call for 12/3

Mail Call for 12/3



"I was reading the paper on Thursday in Mail Call: There was one from Sharpsburg. The person said they were watching TV and listening to the people from the Middle East; these people are very upset because they think they are being discriminated against and they are really upset because the FBI wants to question them. This person from Sharpsburg said they were tired of hearing them whine, she said that they have a country to go back to if they think they are being treated unfairly. I have one thing to say to the person from Sharpsburg: Right on sister! I will even put a couple of dimes in the pot to help them get on the boat. If they don't have time to pack, we will send them their stuff. It probably belongs to us anyway. They can either get over it or go back."

"I want to comment on all the people who are very upset about Pangborn Park possibly being developed and their concerns for the apartment buildings that could be put in there. I have a lovely home, you probably have a lovely home, too, but what about the people who need a home, that don't have enough homes? There is not enough housing, there are a lot of people who can't find apartments to rent and they can't find a home because there isn't enough housing. Even if they have enough money, they have to live with other people because they can't find a place. I think we need more apartments and more complexes. After all, the population keeps growing. It's called progress. Of course, you don't want more homes in the area because you are worried about the beauty. But you know there are some things that you have to sacrifice. What would you rather do? Try not to be selfish when you answer this. Would you rather look out the window and see a beautiful park or a a beautiful apartment building when you know in that building are the people who needed a home. Remember, the haves should be a little more lenient with the have-nots."




"I love Mail Call. The recent calls about the 'Harry Potter' movie are very interesting, not funny, not hilarious. Where were all these callers when most all movies and TV shows are and were so violent that I would not let my 15-year-old daughter watch them? Violence is much worse. I suppose some Bible quoters, might say that the Bible says, 'Thou shalt not kill.' Others might interpret the Bible as saying killing is OK under certain conditions. Well, the Klan is another example of how other people's interpretation of writing has gotten completely out of hand. My opinion on 'Potter,' I don't have one. I mostly let the world go by and observe how human beings can disagree on just about anything and I just smile. This 'Potter' caper is about as funny as the flag caper, but not nearly as funny as the classic dog, street road caper."

"To Good Heaven: The Good Lord helps those who can help themselves. Please read the word 'Can.' This man cannot help himself. I tried to converse with this man. Sometimes in situations like this, it takes professionals to intervene. They need to help this man the correct way. Remember, the Good Lord places us in situations where we can help others and rewards us when we do."




"For all the 'Harry Potter' haters out there: It's fiction, it's fantasy, get over it. Nobody is saying that you have to practice witchcraft if you read the book. I have read all four of them and I have not even been tempted to practice witchcraft. So, get over it."




"We would like to wish Tisha a happy 18 birthday. Love, Mom, Dad, Brittany and John."




"About this 'Harry Potter' thing. It's a movie! That's all it is. Don't throw the Bible at it, don't condemn it. It's a movie, plain and simple! It's not real life, it's a fantasy. Stop using the Bible and acting like this movie is real life, IT'S A MOVIE!"




"No wonder nobody wants to teach in Washington County. The salaries for the teachers are pathetic. The administrators are getting all the money."




"I just read in the paper where someone said that the Bible says, 'God helps those who helps themselves.' I haven't found that."




"The UAW has decided we were to work two hours without pay, our pay will be donated to New York. We have no say in it. Our company collected money for New York and the company matched our donation. I gave, my wife's company gave, we gave at Wal-Mart and at our church. I don't like working for nothing for two hours. I feel sorry for New York, but I also want to make my own choices."




"Thank you very much to the people who stopped to help my daughter last Sunday morning. She had an accident on Burnside Bridge Road. She was very grateful for such kind and helpful people. A special thanks to the sheriff's deputy and the woman who stayed with her the entire time, being so comforting and caring. As a mother, you have no idea how wonderful it was to have her tell me about all of you when I got there to pick her up and take her home. Thanks very much."




"I am interested in the plants that you have. Call 301-991-8851."
