My name is Ray. I'm calling regarding the young lady who assisted me at the Weis store on Dual Highway. I would like to say thank you very much. I thought I was having a sugar attack but it turns out that I was having a seizure. I think her name is Mary. She drove a little white car. I just really, really want to thank her. She was definitely an angel sent by God."

"I enjoyed some of the comments about NASCAR fans in Mail Call. I agree with one gentleman. NASCAR is a clean sport. You don't read about drugs, wife beatings, murder, robbery by its members or participants. I hate to disappoint the people that really like NASCAR but I would bet money that these problems are coming in the near future."

"I think they ought to have a law banning people from using cell phones when they're driving. I think they're abusing their cell phone usage while driving. I think they're also making a toy out of them. I don't feel it's that important for them to be talking on their cell phone while they're driving. It's a traffic hazard, to say the least. I think they ought to have a law passed fining people that are caught talking on their cell phones while driving."

"I was reading the column today and I would like some of these parents to tell me why they have to take their children to school. I'm not trying to be smart but I just want to know some of the reasons why they have to take their children to school. Do they not have buses? Are they not close enough to walk? I personally feel that a lot of these kids are being taken to school when they wouldn't have to be. Just curious."

"I saw the music of the '60s on PBS Saturday night. There were more than 50 great bands like The Byrds, Steppenwolf, The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, the Temptations to name a few. Music of unsurpassed quality, all great musicians and composers. Music of love, togetherness. This music made the generations of the '60s what they believed for. But now I see the rap music of today and not only the musicians, but people who degrade women, speak of hate and violence and disrespect society and this is what I see of the generation today."

On Wednesday evening there was a bad one there but of course it wasn't in the paper. The speed limit is 35 but they do 50 or more. It is really hard to get out of there."

I forget who started that but that's why we have emissions testing and the state says it's a good job and good-paying job and that is why we have it in this county and that is not why they have it in Southern Maryland."
