Mail Call

November 23, 2004

"I found a diamond ring at a local restaurant about a month and a half ago. I know the woman who lost it probably wants it back. Call me at 240-329-4082. My name is David. I want to give it back to its rightful owner. I don't feel right keeping it. Describe it to me and I will give it back to you. I didn't turn it in to my employer because I knew he would keep it. I want to give it to the rightful owner."

- Washington County




"It's time for the Bush supporters to quit gloating and the Kerry camp to stop complaining. The election is over, deal with it. Also, the hospital does not belong to Hagerstown. It is the Washington County Hospital. The last time I checked, Hagerstown isn't the only city in Washington County. The mayor whining about the move from downtown to Robinwood is absurd. How long does he think it takes the rest of us to get there? Here is an idea, bring it on up here to Hancock, the people are friendly, there will be fewer traffic problems and maybe we can get to the hospital in less than 45 minutes. "

"In regards to malpractice. I am tired of people walking around with horse blinders on defending or protecting doctors who kill human beings by accident. They have the arrogance to think that such behavior or negligence should not be held liable to pay for full restitution, which would include, jail time, loss of license and satisfactory monetary compensation. In closing, I thank God for coroners and lawyers who expose the truth, especially when hospitals, hide and shred evidence and blackball doctors and employees if they should expose wrongful doings on a patient."

- Mercersburg, Pa.




"To the mayor and council, stop and desist already. Don't fight the hospital anymore. Don't spend one cent more of my increased taxes for this purpose. The hospital will ultimately win, so please stop."

- Hagerstown




"We all may be a little generous spending our own money, as well as everyone else's on good causes and other people. But at least we aren't self-righteous, hypocritical conservatives who put the money in their own pocket and walk away with a smile on our face, because we won!"

- Hagerstown




"I am the person who called in about the no tomatoes on the salads at the spaghetti feed. I saw in the paper the other day where someone said if I leave my number, they would give me a bushel of tomatoes. You missed the point. I don't want them personally. I was just saying that there wasn't any on the salads when you go to the spaghetti feeds. I buy them for myself at my home. You can take them to the places they have the spaghetti feeds."

- Hagerstown




"I was in an accident in June and I had to be transported to several doctor's appointments by Mid-Maryland Medical Transport and I just wanted to say that I am praying for the drivers and everyone who worked there because you guys weren't nothing but professional. You cared about nothing but my well being and I am praying for all of you."

- Hagerstown




"I am constantly amazed how misinformed some people are in matters of the presidency of the United States. Someone said that Bush's administration voted for Kerry and hoped Bush would be defeated so they wouldn't have to resign. Common sense says that if Kerry was elected, Bush's entire cabinet would automatically resign and Kerry would appoint his own cabinet. That is standard operating procedure for the presidency."

- Washington County




"Congratulations to the North High volleyball team for a great season. You are a great group of ladies."

- Hagerstown




"The teachers who are whining about how much they are getting paid here. They need to stop and look at those kids' faces. They should be in it for the kids, not what they can get out of it for themselves."

- Clear Spring




"In response to the person who wanted to know how much a physician makes. According to a magazine, the gross income of neurosurgeons is $396,000, the gross income of a plastic surgeon is $312,000, and the gross income of a family practice doctor is $120,000. Keep in mind that this is gross income, and from that gross income comes employees' salary, rent, insurance, equipment and other little essentials."

- Washington County




"I saw Kerry on TV the other day and it seems like his face is longer now than it ever was. I don't know if it is from losing the election or if he had a bad day goose hunting."

- Frederick County




"It's so nice to hear and read so many hateful comments in Mail Call. It really makes my day."

- Washington County




"I am responding to the person who lost their wallet at Charles Town Races with a lot of money in it. I don't hardly think they were going to spend that money on their grandkids for Christmas or they wouldn't have taken it to Charles Town in the first place."

- Maugansville




"I want to thank the people at North Hagerstown Rehabilitation for being very kind and caring people. I hope you all have a very happy Thanksgiving."

- Hagerstown
