Mail Call for 3/17

March 18, 2003

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 complained about people not pumping gas. I don't pump my own gas because I am pregnant, so I don't have to breathe in the fumes. I wish people would stop and think before going and criticizing people."

"To the person who said about them sending all of our troops overseas. We're not, I don't think we are that stupid."


"I wanted to thank the person who turned in my tags to MVA. Thanks very much, you saved me a lot of trouble."

"After watching the Elizabeth Smart story, I will assure you that I will not be picking up any homeless people, bringing them back to my house and introducing them to my 15-year-old daughter. Duh!"

"I would like to know two things. One, why can't Bush do the talking for himself? Why does he need a spokesperson. If this is his war and if he wants to start it, shouldn't he be the one out selling it. Second, if Iraq isn't allowed to have missiles that can reach 500 miles, How can the U.S. have missiles on their battleships that can reach 1,000 miles? What's good for the goose, apparently isn't good for the gander."

"I read in Mail Call where someone asked who was going to protect the nation while all the troops are overseas. It's going to be all of us gun owners, we will be behind every tree when someone invades."

"I have two sourdough recipes. Call 301-739-8469."

"In response to the person who needs help to find a vet that will take payment plans. If you would leave your name and number in Mail Call and how much you need, I may be able to help you."

"I have been reading in the paper about the Maryland Med Bank Program. This is a wonderful program. I have been working with them for a while now. They are the most patient and wonderful people to deal with. If you have a question or problem, you contact them and ask them, they will give you an answer. I hope everyone has such success like I have. It has been a life saver for my mother."
