Mail Call for 1/28



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 am 46 years old, I worked for 30 years and I know the poor side of the fence and I know the rich side of the track. No let me re-word that, I know the very comfortable side of the track, not rich. But when I picked up Thursday's Mail Call, I was outraged, at the message someone put in there. They said they were sick and tired of the senior citizens who was always crying about their Social Security and their insurance. This person said that everyone is affected and they needed to go out and get a job like everyone else. Can you imagine someone telling an elderly person to go out and get a job? Until you have lived on a couple hundred a month and until you use that couple hundred for medication and you have to decide whether you want to eat or have a roof over your head. My lord, do you realize what income some of these people have to live on? Most of them have already worked most of their life."

"I can't understand people in our country complaining about those terrorists not being treated right. I think they should be treated worse. They sure didn't care about the savage and cruel way they left our people burned up and a lot of lives separated. This country is too easy on murderers."




"About the person who said the seniors should go out and get a job. Well when you get to be a senior citizen, you will find out, you can't get a job that simple. It would be nice, I have been trying and I can't. I know I have been there. You owe an apology to the senior citizens."




"People keep blaming the birds for invading our towns. We the people are responsible for this, just as we are for deer and in some places bears, coming into the towns and on roads. The developers are taking away the trees and the habitats. Where can they go? It is all due to greed and the city is responsible for letting this happen. The worse part is, the green space is getting smaller, it's being replaced with steel, wood and concrete. What a shame. Bush wants more tools to rebuild the economy, what's wrong, has the Social Security been drained dry?"




"I want to know if there is someone out there who can tell me what to use on my leather pocketbook to remove black ink?"




"I wonder about the planning commission, about the fact that they are willing to grant ground to anyone at all. Even the Wal-Mart, which has one already sitting and yet they want to build another one. For what? They are not the only people that are moving on and leaving the buildings sit empty. Does someone have something in mind for those buildings and if they do, what are they intending to happen to those buildings?"




"Why does it take citizen complaints to get some police action, mainly on these out-of-state cars parked month in and month out? When they come to Maryland to live, they are supposed to get Maryland tags and pay tax on that car. Why do people have to complain in order to get some action? That is their job."

"To the person who took my wreath stand and wreath over at Greenlawn Cemetery. Please bring them back, I know who you are."




"To the lady who comes to my house and picks up coupons for the store. I have another bunch of them. Call me at 301-791-1775."
