You Said It

February 26, 2007

"To the caller who was saying we should talk to the terrorists and turn the other cheek like Jesus did: Should we put you down to be the first sacrificial lamb when they attack us again after cutting and running? Also, for the record, you say we should be in Afghanistan looking for bin Laden. We are."




"Another historical figure observed that a country will be destroyed by politicians who cater to the money-changers and merchants - meaning banks and big business. Welcome to 21st-century America."

"I served in World War II, and that was a real war. Young men and women are being killed in this so-called war, and it is a travesty. There is no declared war. During World War II, the whole country was involved - as it should be in a war. If a young man was not in uniform, people wondered why; their loved ones were. Now military people do not wear the uniforms whenever possible. Why? I'll tell you why. The government wants you to run this hard blunder in as low a key as possible. Don't get American people any more than you have to or than is necessary. The dying and wounded servicemen and women and their families are a real problem for the government. Right now, they can just say 'All military people volunteered.' I say if you want to get the whole country involved, restart the draft."

"A 'thank you' goes out for a snow angel in Mercersburg - Roger Hockenberry. While I was doing my paper run, I got stuck.Roger came out and worked for more than an hour getting me out of the snow. Thank you again."

"The thugs are out. It's a warm day in Hagerstown. You drive through Hagerstown, it's a very sad sight. The criminals will be out doing their crimes. The warmer the weather, the more you'll see, so I suggest everybody look around, report anything you see - any suspicious characters and drug deals, report it immediately. The police need your help and they need your support - and no lawsuits against the police for doing their job."

"I would like to congratulate all the students who participated in Fountain Rock's talent show on Feb. 21. Great job to one and all. A very special 'thank you' to B.J. Ostrum, director and coordinator, for putting it all together and making it a fun night for everyone. Fountain Rock has a host of talents, from actors, pianists, to singers and dancers, just waiting to fill the shoes of today's stars. Keep up the good work."

"For the people of the city of Hagerstown, remember this: All that is needed for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing."

"On Feb. 2, I was in an accident at the intersection of Resh Road and Williamsport Pike. The gentleman whose car I hit was very kind, considerate and helpful. Several persons stopped to see if we were hurt and if we needed help. One man in a truck stopped, and with his bare hands, pulled my right front fender away from the tire so I could drive the car. My warmest thanks to all who helped."

"I just want to thank the man with the huge equipment that cleared my driveway of snow and ice Saturday, Feb. 17, approximately at 3:30 p.m. I didn't get your name or name on your equipment, and I'm not sure I thanked you. I appreciate your kindness. Hope you read (You Said It)."

"I know it's a little late to comment on this; however, I feel I must. The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates that all organizations must have access to people with disabilities. In most cases, that means curb cuts, handicapped parking and the like. However, during the recent snowstorm, and I've noticed it over the past few years, snow is plowed into the handicapped parking spaces, and curb cuts are not plowed with the lot. It's a very simple thing to do, folks, just to take your shovel or your dozer and cut into the curb to allow access to people who use wheelchairs."

"This is to those who left their trash laying on National Pike on Wednesday morning, before 2 in the afternoon. Apparently they ate lunch at one of the fast-food places and they ate in their car or vehicle, whatever they were driving, and then just threw their trash out on the middle of the road. I live on National Pike. I don't appreciate your trash. Take it home with you, or take it somewhere and throw in the Dumpster. "

- Hancock




"Has anyone else realized that the school board budget has gone up $100 million in the last seven years? This just astounds me."

- Washington County




"I'd just like to let the man that knew I turned his brother's wallet in to the Valley Mall customer service: A simple 'thank you' would have been nice."

"Would Del. Myers go up toward Clear Spring, at the Myers farm, and cover up that bull? Look what's showing on it. There are surely enough problems in this state to solve without getting into something so trivial."

- Hagerstown
