Mail Call for 2-9

February 10, 2005

"In regards to the closing of Holly Place. I think it's a shame that these elderly people have no place to go."

- Hagerstown




"I want to comment about the murder of that inmate who was on that bus with five guards. I think this needs to be investigated and the guards should be the ones in trouble. They are supposed to be in charge of their prisoners while on the bus and I think it's disgusting that this even happened."

- Boonsboro




"Maryland Gov. Ehrlich said he needs more respect. How does he think he will get more respect by raising taxes on the automobile tags and all the other taxes? We all live off of a limited income and can't afford this anymore. Lower them and keep them lowered."

- Sharpsburg Pike




"I recently moved to Hancock. In reference to the call about the kindness at the hospital. I just moved here from Jamaica. Last Friday, I was at the hospital being cut open and my life being saved by these people. Everyone of you in that town needs to go down there and honor these doctors and nurses. Get in touch with them, it's bizarre to read something bad about the wonderful angels of mercy that just saved my life. Stop complaining and be grateful for what you have. Enjoy life and the people that surround you."

- Hancock




"I just can't believe what I read in the paper. These people would take our money and give it to Iraq instead of giving the money to the seniors who really need it."

- Washington County




"Think about this people, the people at Holly Place don't have any place to go. Then think about the organizations at all the churches and the homeless shelters that will help people who are able to work and make a choice to be lazy and they will take care of them. But they won't take care of the senior citizens."

- Washington County




"I love to go and watch the ice hockey games at the Hagerstown ice hockey rink. I think it's great for the young boys and girls. But I just wish the paper or whoever is responsible would call in the results of the divisions. These guys are doing a great job. It's good sportsmanship. We just need to learn more about who is playing where and what the scores are. Love to see more articles about this."

- Big Pool




"For all you callers who said Bush is doing a great job. Why don't you tell the people at the tannery in Williamsport who are losing more jobs going to Mexico. Tell them that Bush is doing a great job."

- Washington County




"Everyone is so happy about these elections in Iraq. They had a form of democracy to begin with. Think about it, they are like gangs over here. They kill each other, murder, mayhem. Give them a TV and show them a bunch of reality shows and they will be just like America."

- Hagerstown




"I am so glad that the Eagles lost. I can't believe that Mr. Owens said that racist remark against Bret Favre. If Favre were to say that against Owens, he would be called a racist. I think Owens should be suspended from playing football."

- Boonsboro




"Let's put all the tension about creation vs. evolution to rest. There need be no arguments. The answer is so simple, it seems to have escaped the fundamentalists and intellectuals. God created evolution."

- Hagerstown




"For all of you who are under 55 and voted for Bush, congratulations. This man is about to destroy the trust that was created by Roosevelt in the 'New Deal' and give us all a bad deal."

- Smithsburg




"I just wanted to say about the halftime show for the Super Bowl. I think this was the best halftime show I have seen since I have been watching the Super Bowl since 1970. Hats off to Paul McCartney for the best show ever. Thank God there were no Jacksons in there ruining the show again."

- Williamsport




"I would love to have the old encyclopedias. Call me at 301-416-7704."

- Hagerstown




"Hey people, guess what Bush did for you? He went to Canada to stop you from getting your prescriptions there. Is he for us or against us?"

- Clear Spring




"About the inmate killed on the prison bus. I think from the commissioner, including secretary, all of them should be fired and should be made to resign. I think they all need to go and be replaced."




"I was passing through Hagerstown to visit a friend of mine on Monday afternoon. I have always admired Hagerstown for its beauty. But this time when I passed through, trash was all over the West End of Hagerstown. What is going on here? It really looked horrible. I was very disappointed to come all this way to see a beautiful town and all I see is trash."




"I am calling about the person who said they know people who didn't work and never paid a penny into Social Security and now are getting more money than them after working for 30 years. Are you referring to a wife who is drawing on her husband's Social Security or are you talking about a widow who is drawing on her dead husband's Social Security? I can't think of any other incident where people don't pay in and would get benefits."

- Hagerstown
