Mail Call for 2/5



"To the lady who called and said about her mother being in a nursing home and not being treated fairly. Call Mail Call back and leave your number. I have quite a bit of information that will help you."




"I wish someone could explain to me why John Walker is only being tried for a life sentence and not being tried for treason when all the evidence is against him?"




"To the ones who want us seniors to get out and work and stop whining about our troubles. I worked from the time I was 12 years old and worked as long as I was able. Why wouldn't we complain about not getting what we deserve when you young people are too lazy to work, when you run from place to place getting everything handed to you for free?"




"I want to say to Chris and Julie, have a very happy birthday. Mom loves you."

"The nominees for the most annoying commercials are: Number one, Capital One, number two, Capital One, number three, Capital One. The envelope please: The winner is Capital One!"




"Hagerstown Police Department, since you have been checking out the out-of-town license plates, you should also check out the alleys because they are now parking in there, thinking you won't check. But please, check the alleys also."




"About the lady who has the mother in the nursing home. No, they are not allowed to do that. They are supposed to get all patients up until bedtime."




"I saw 'Titanic' at The Maryland Theatre. It will be a very long time before I spend another penny at that place. First of all, no programs. What's the matter, couldn't you get advertisers to spring for a one-nighter? Too bad, then you pay for it. Suggestion, if you turn the heat down, you might be able to afford to pay for one. Who lit this show? I have seen high school productions lit better. Sometimes the audience had to scan the stage, character by character, straining to see whose lips were moving. Sets, what's the matter didn't anyone feel like moving them from the truck for a one-night stand? Or when they got here, they found out the stage was too small? Don't you know what size the stage is or the back stage is? But what do we know, we're just a bunch of local hayseeds who will fork over $50 a whack so The Maryland Theatre has a good looking season. Hey, Maryland Theatre, this was an insult. You owe us an apology."




"To the lady who has the mother in a nursing home. I have a mother in a nursing home, too. If you only knew everything that was going on. There is no use to go to the administrator about anything, even if you have power of attorney. They have an answer for everything you bring up. These poor people, especially the ones who have Alzheimer's, they can't speak up and say what is happening to them."




"I am the person who called in about Dick Cheney and this is to the person who responded to me. I am informed. I voted for Bush. I still like him and Cheney. I was referring to the Gulf War. When we were in the Gulf War, Gore was not hiding somewhere in a cage like a scared rabbit. He was out there helping the president. How do you know Cheney is doing his job? You don't know that. All I know is he is hiding. He is scared to peek his head out. I want to see the vice president and the president out here fighting this war. I want to know he is doing something."




"I just got my emissions inspection ticket. I have an old car; it is $14. I just got my Social Security and now there goes $14. I have to use this for this instead of medicine. It's really sad."




"After watching the PTA Reflections program at Valley Mall on Saturday, I think one thing could sum it up - 'fast food.' These children spent many hours and days on their projects. What kind of lesson are we teaching our children if the adults who are presenting the program just throw it together to get it over with? How sad for the children who had their family members there and their name was never called out. Their faces didn't seem like much of a party. The refreshments were very slim to none. There were no newspaper people to recognize their hard work. No wonder the programs disappear. How exciting was the presentation from the adults? The children who had a ribbon, the ribbons were very pitiful. The certificate looked like it was printed from the computer. They didn't even have names on them. The Board of Education needs to find the right volunteers for the job. This year's Reflections Program was, 'let's get it over with.' They never even furnished chairs for people to sit down. That tells you how fast they wanted it to be over."




"I want to tell Harvey, who works at the Three-Minute Car Wash on Jonathan Street, to keep up the good work. From an old employee."




"Best wishes to Joanie. Good luck and congratulations."
