July 11, 2002

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:

  • "To the person who was upset because someone was waiting at green lights. You suggested that those people stay off the streets during rush hour. Well, I suggest that you stay off the street all the time, because you don't know how to drive. When you are at a red light, you make sure nobody is coming when it turns green, or you are going to get clobbered one of these days. This is called defensive driving."

  • "I have boxwoods that are dying. Is there an expert out there on boxwoods who could give us some help or tell us where to go to get help?"

  • "People better pay attention to who is running for County Commissioner now. The current candidates are formerly Board of Education members. Is this who you would really want running the county? Get out and vote."

  • "I lost a set of keys on July 4 at the Fairgrounds. If anyone finds them, please call Mail Call."

  • "The person who called in about the new facility for CRS, it is no longer new. Anyone driving past the Eastern Boulevard facility would know that this tiny little place, that used to be their headquarters could hold the operation that is now saving lives in this city. Maybe that is the problem, this caller doesn't live in the city."

  • "In response to the caller who said that this column was for opinions, not religion. I have one question, on your death bed are you going to state your opinion or call on God?"

  • "The most comical news of the weekend is that Bush went to New York on Tuesday to give a speech about corporate reform. Bush is a good one to do it considering what he did with all of his oil wells and used that money to invest in the Texas Rangers. You are going to find out when it's too late. Bush is just like all the other big business CEOs."

  • "What a wonderful tribute to our country, our nation, our flag and our servicemen was rendered by the beautiful orchestra the other night in City Park. We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy these concerts. They do such a wonderful job. I hope they will read this and get a bunch of thank you's. They are such an important part of our summer season and our city and the wonderful tributes they play for everyone. I hope everyone comes out and enjoys these great concerts. Thanks, Mail Call."

  • "Since the old one doesn't suit anyone, try this one: 'I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stood, one nation under federal government and liberty and justice for politicians.'"
