"Thanks to the caller who said, 'there is a big difference between diversity and perversity' how very true. Thanks Mr. Mayor on your comments, but I am disappointed that you find it necessary to apologize to the protesters. To those persons, Father forgive them, for they know not what they do, or do they."


"This is a time of year where I think you should remember your mail carriers and paper carriers. This is when you should show your appreciation for all the hard work they do. They do hard work all year long and are usually not shown appreciation."

"If the State of Maryland is in such bad shape and out of money, can't afford this and can't afford that, then how can they buy $55 million worth of voting machines? What was wrong with blackening in the arrow and voting the way we have been for years."

"I am reading Mail Call and someone mentioned about how to get a gift to the mail carrier. We put one out every year and we put the mail carriers name on it and whoever picks it up, will take it to him. He always came back and told us he received it, even if he wasn't on the route that day."

"When you go into beauty salons, why do they charge so much for haircuts or just a wash and set? Is it because people aren't getting perms like they used to? I know supplies are high, but come on. You can't even go get a haircut without paying $25."

"Thanks to Ed Kline for plowing about five driveways on Saturday after the snow storm."
