Mail Call

July 31, 2008

"Since when did it become acceptable to bring your baby or small child to a rated-R movie? Friday night I was at a showing of 'Step Brothers,' and was forced to watch the movie through the screams of a newborn baby behind me. Oh, did I mention the preschool-aged children running around the lower seats in a spirited game of tag? The movie was rated R for a good reason, and even as a 22-year-old, some parts were offensive. When you become a parent, you can't always do what you want to do, such as going to any movie you please with your child. Please be courteous to others, and above all, responsible for your child, and leave them at home. Don't have a sitter? Don't come."




"This goes out to the kids who decided they would have a little fun in Maugansville, and put corn cobs in people's tailpipes and in their gas tanks. Not very nice. Very malicious, and you trespassed on property. And to the parents out there who these children belong to: You should really know where your children are after dark. If I catch the kids who did that, I will prosecute them, along with the parents." - Maugansville

"How could I be a part of the consultant study for the county's waste stream (dump)? I could be an expert, since I have been going there since it opened. My opinion is: Leave it like it is. If supervision is needed, perhaps the employee and his truck could do it. It is too isolated to use inmates." - Hagerstown




"I just want to say one thing. On Tuesday, July 29, on the Opinion page, the 'Hemphill/Rooke plea deal plays mockery of justice.' I think everybody in the whole wide world should read this. It's right to the point, and I think it should be looked into. Other people have to suffer, so why don't they suffer? Because you know why, because they have clout in this town. So I think this should be printed, and people should read everything that they say. This is a very good article."




"No matter what you think about President Bush on other matters, that's beside the point, but on this issue, the recent and sudden drop in the price of crude oil, it is all about Bush. You've got to give the man the credit. On the day he lifted the presidential ban on domestic drilling, the oil prices went into a downward spiral. Now if only the Democrats ... it would drop a lot more. Just wait until this winter and see what you're paying for fuel oil and kerosene. It's going to hurt, my friends." - North End




"Things must have changed since I've been to shows in New York, Washington, and Baltimore. Yes, alcohol was served, but only in the lobby."
