Mail Call for 1/31



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 see that the surveyors are out surveying Maugans Avenue to widen the road from two lanes to five lanes between the interstate and Pennsylvania Avenue. This is going to affect all the houses. I urge all the people who own the properties to fight it and all other people in the county to fight it. It is going to cost millions of dollars to widen a road that we do not need widened."

"I found a heart-shaped key chain with three keys on it and says 'TAL and TMB forever and always.' If these are your keys, call Mail Call and leave your number. I would leave mine, but I don't have a phone. I found them at the Food Lion on Wilson Boulevard in Hagerstown."




"To all you Pittsburgh Steelers fans and Philadelphia Eagles fans that kept knocking the Baltimore Ravens, what happened?"




"Now that Glendening has a new wife to occupy his time, maybe he will let law-abiding, God-fearing, gun owners in Maryland alone."




"I don't know why we even have vice principals at these small elementary school, the principal could handle that job. They could save money by not having those vice principals."




"All you seniors do is complain. Find something worthwhile to do like volunteer work, a hobby or join a club instead of whining. I have worked for over 20 years and I will continue to do so until I am unable. I do not expect a free ride like so many other people do."




"To everyone who is complaining about the seniors, I agree with the seniors, they have worked their days, they have worked their days in our hospitals, in our factories, they have been our city employees and they have worked in our town. I feel for them. They deserve money to live off of. It's very hard for seniors these days. How about we all step back and take a look at where we are going to be in the future? Let's stop picking on the senior citizens."




"Now we see where another one of the Bush girls was arrested for allegedly trying to forge a prescription. You know what I noticed about the Bush family, they remind me more every day of the Kennedys, they are all alike. Yet it seems like the American public, the more they are like that the more the people like it. As far as I am concerned, Clinton was the best president we had since Roosevelt."




"I am sure that both papers will have some big long article praising Bush about his speech, no matter how bad it was. That is why you are losing circulation all the time. The only thing read in that paper in this household is the deaths, Mail Call and the classified sometimes. The only reason I keep this paper is because there is an 80-year-old in this house that doesn't want to do without. But when they are gone, so is the paper. I get all my news off the Internet anyway."
