Mail Call

December 06, 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:

"Did I read right, in last night's paper they are going to have a game preserve where they bring in live birds and people are going to shoot them? What are we trying to do, replace that little town in Pennsylvania that got hit by every animal rights group on the planet?"

"I hope I am not different from anyone else. I like to give my mail carrier a gift for Christmas, but by the time you put it out there, that mail carrier isn't there, or he has missed me a few times. So I guess I will just have to put something out there and whoever gets it, gets it."


"Why don't the evergreens that the city planted at Washington Square and Five Corners have Christmas lights on them this year?"

"Would anyone know where I can get a new phone book cover? If you do, please put it in Mail Call, I would appreciate it very much."

"I want to thank Donnie Parrott for supplying Thanksgiving dinner for the people in the Alexander House. He did it out of the kindness of his heart. He opened his door, people went in and filled their plates up. We were all happy, satisfied and full. Thanks very much."

"I was reading in the paper about a woman who was asking if Tim Rowland got free advertising in the paper. I would certainly hope so, because that is why I buy The Daily Mail. Also, Tim, how is your book selling?"

"Why does the state of Maryland keep pushing these computer voting machines when several computer experts say they can be manipulated. Like the system we have now, who profits from the making of these machines and the buying of them?"
