"I'm wondering how the Obama voters are loving this change. It seems Obama's gonna sign a spending bill over 9,000 earmarks, yet he promised there would be no more earmarks and pork. And it looks like the Dow is responding to Obama's economic policies. It's down below 7,000 as I make this message, and Obama has had a bigger effect on the Dow than 9/11. It is now down over 2,500 points since the chosen one has become president." - Chambersburg, Pa.

"I was wondering if anyone knows what has happened to the TV station WJAL. I really miss that station." - Boonsboro

"This is on 'Lawmakers headed to Annapolis.' This is on Joe Lane. I'd like to respond to his article in the newspaper on the Opinion page. It looks like he's downing the Republicans for everything that happened in Washington County and everything, but you know, the state of Maryland's been Democratic-controlled for so many years ... and look where the taxes is going. The Democrats keeps raising taxes." - Hagerstown


"I've always been an admirer of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and I've been a lifelong resident of Maryland. Now, why I mention her and my status here in Maryland is, I'm one who argues continually that under Gov. O'Malley we have become a socialist state here in Maryland, and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. Look around you, taxpayers. You'll understand what I'm talking about." - Hagerstown

"I've noticed that you have restaurant inspections published in your paper for Maryland. Why aren't there restaurant inspections published concerning the restaurants in Pennsylvania, especially in the Greencastle area? I would like to know if they actually inspect some of these restaurants in Pennsylvania, because I know a couple in the Greencastle area ... I feel the health inspector should." - Greencastle, Pa.

"After watching Rush Limbaugh speak this evening, I was wondering, if Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity know so much about running this country, why didn't they run for president and win, and maybe they could have done it their way? I'm tired of hearing these guys say how it should be this way, it should be that way, and they never do anything about it." - Falling Waters, W.Va.

"Just like to know why anybody would want to have another trial when this guy's already been tried twice for the killing of that woman in Smithsburg. He's in prison, he killed before, let him stay where he's at. He belongs there." - Hancock

"An American citizen from Washington County. Thanks for the global warming. March 3, wind chill, 7:00 in the morning, 7 below. And thanks, Congress and the Senate, $150 billion to AIG. They just lost $50 billion over in the last quarter ... and we're gonna loan them another $30 billion. There's a lot of real good thinking going on in D.C." - Washington County

"Concerning the Celebrity Apprentice show I caught a little bit of last night, I think it's really stupid and silly, but it just goes to show how these celebrities that appear on Donald Trump's show goes through anything, even if it means being embarrassed in front of American people. Yeah it just goes to show, I mean, these celebrities that appear on his show will go through anything just to get attention, bring attention to themselves. I thought that show was really stupid." - Greencastle, Pa.

"Will somebody tell John McCain that he lost the election? Everywhere I see, he's on the TV now, or radio, talk shows, cutting up our president. Somebody should tell him that he lost the election, and then go home and keep his mouth shut." - Hagerstown

"Hey, I see where they still got two lights burned out on the new bridge in Shepherdstown. The Sharpsburg town clock is six minutes slow. If they need to borrow a ladder to fix the clock, I'd be glad to lend them one." - Hagerstown

"Next year, Pennsylvania senator Arlen Specter turns 80 years old. Arlen, it's time to come clean and clear your conscience. You're on the Warren Commission, and you offered the single bullet theory, which we know is bogus. Free your mind, free your conscience, and come clean about the Kennedy assassination." - Chambersburg, Pa.

"I want to know why up in front of Winter Street Elementary School it says no parking from 8 to I think it's 4 or 4:30 in the afternoon when the kids when are in school. Well, today I tried to go up the street, and there was a rig that had to park out in the middle of the street, because the cars were parked there where they're all the time parked, and nobody does nothing about it, and I had trouble getting through because the rig was trying to unload food to take into the school. Now I think it's about time the city does something about them cars parked up there every day when it says 'No parking.'" - Hagerstown
