Mail Call

January 12, 2009

"How sad it is when you pick up the paper and read where young people and high school girls talking about the president and the election, that Obama was, be our future president, and then say that George Bush has done a lot of bad things. How sad that is when they have no idea what they're talking about, and he never done anything bad." -- Hagerstown




"I'm a 72-year-old woman who has always been for the underdog and for people getting what they have coming to them, and I thought this senator from Illinois, senator-elect from Illinois, should get this job, regardless of what's going on with the governor -- until he throwed the race card in, and then I wondered how many times he would try that in the Senate." -- Falling Waters, W.Va.




"The Herald-Mail does not run Mail Call on weekends, but during the week, there is a note at the top of the column saying that they don't have enough room to run all the submissions. Let's get it together guys, and run some of those leftover didn't-make-it-into-the-weekday items. Mail Call is the pulse of the community, full of the funny and the stupid, and one of my favorite parts of the paper." -- Chambersburg, Pa.

"President Bush, in his last scheduled press conference, said the press sometimes 'misunderestimated him.' I believe that a large number of voters in the years 2000 and 2004 grossly misunderestimated George W. Bush." -- Rohrersville




"Berkeley County Commissioner Anthony 'Tony' Petrucci has the chance to become the 'financial watchdog.' He should try to expose every inappropriate, special-interest-requested, unnecessary, wasteful spending proposal. Somebody has to do it." -- Martinsburg, W.Va.
