Mail Call for 3/31

April 01, 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:

"I know an older couple that is not very well. Their health is going down the hill. They are in their upper 70s and early 80s and their family doesn't even come around to see them. They have to realize that they are going to get old, too. So you better go see them while you can."

"I want to suggest that you protesters, some time that you don't have anything to do, sit down and listen to the country song called, 'Have You Forgotten' then maybe you will realize why we are over in Iraq."


"RJB, come clean, stop playing people. Stop being a player, just come clean. You know what we are all talking about."

"Is there a number to call to see if any of these things that you get in the mail, these organizations for children are legal or not? What I am talking about is, Running Strong for the American Indians. It is supposed to be a project of Christian Relief Services and I was wondering if it was on the up and up or not?"

"I want to invite anyone who has people in their family who are in the military serving our country, to a support group that we just started. Our first meeting is Thursday, April 3, at 7 p.m. at St. James Catholic Church Parish Hall in Boonsboro, at Ford and Main streets, right across from the Hagerstown Trust building. We are looking forward to seeing you. We hope we have a good turnout because this is our first meeting. I want everyone to know that there are a lot of us out here and that there is support. If anyone needs directions or questions, call Lynn at 301-432-4979."

"Where are there Eckard stores located in the Hagerstown area? I keep getting flyers and coupons and nowhere on there does it state where they are located."

"I was going out South Potomac Street near Bester School. Traffic was backed up, I was moving with the traffic and suddenly the crossing guard asked me, 'don't you know about crosswalks?' If he had been doing his job instead of laughing and joking with a young lady on the sidewalk, this would not have happened. He was talking to me very nasty."
