Mail Call for 9/10

September 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:

"In response to the person about the beagle at the SPCA, we might be able to help. Call 301-582-0242. We have called the SPCA twice and have gotten no response."

"I can't believe that our president would oppose assistance to our growers and ranchers hurt by the drought, and yet pushing for war with Iraq, which would cost billions of dollars, not to mention the lives of our boys. Can't he realize that we can't please the world. We need enough pleasing in our own nation. No wonder other countries hate us, we stick our nose where it doesn't belong. Let these countries take care of their problems and we can take care of our own. With all our interference in the countries, what have we really accomplished, except more children and innocent people being killed. I say hands off."


"Why do they have to take the soap operas off of channel 9 and 13? They always have to take them off for tennis or basketball. Why can't they take them off of channel 12 or 7 sometimes?"

"I was reading in the paper about this robbery attempt at Walnut Towers. I think it is ridiculous that a man goes in there and tries to rob these poor older people. He should never be released from jail. Mr. Hoffman, God bless you and may God always be with you. We need more gentlemen like you. Please, ladies, keep your doors locked."

"I was reading about all these things happening with mail boxes, car windows being shot out and things being taken out of yards. Years ago, you didn't hear about things like this. I think it has to do with the way the parents are raising their kids these days."

"If it is such great entertainment, then maybe everyone should call Mail Call with their To Do List."

"To the lady whose beagle is at the Humane Society. Please come and claim your beagle. The animal is being very well taken care of. We don't know who you are and which one is yours, we have six of them."

"About the kids not being allowed to go to the restroom in schools. Go to the school, parents and let the school know that you are not going to stand for it. The teachers, the principals are allowed to go whenever they want to, so why can't the students?"

"In response to the person who found a cell phone at Valley Mall. I think it may be mine if it is a black Nokia. The cell phone number is 301-491-1643 and my number is 301-797-7867, so if that is the phone you have, call me so I can pick it up."

"I found a set of car keys on Fairview Mountain. Call to describe what is on the keys and I will return them. Call 301-842-3364."

"I would like to know if anyone has an old time recipe for homemade cabbage soup?"

"Does anyone know the recipe for potato candy?"
