"I just got behind a car here in Hagerstown. There's a woman driving it. She has a cell phone in one hand, was lighting up a cigarette in the other hand, has a little kid in the back, and just went through a red light. If she can't even do one thing at a time, why is she doing that many things at a time? So, you know, I think they shouldn't be allowed smoking anyway, with little kids in the car."

- Berkeley Springs, W.Va.




"Hagerstown's got to be the worst-run town in Washington County and in the state of Maryland. It isn't anything but a big mess. The traffic, everything is so screwed up."

- Hagerstown




"I'm a Washington County taxpayer, and I just saw where the CEO from that AIG, they want to give their top executives and employees ($165 million) in bonuses. For what, for messing the company up? I own part of that company now, and so do you, and so does anyone else that works. Enough is enough."

"This is an older woman who's not a mother, and it's to the married mom who had the unkind and not understanding comments to make about the single moms out there. Single moms tell you that they're single moms upfront, so that you don't expect things from them that they can't provide, to let you know what their status is."

- Hagerstown




"For the caller from Boonsboro on Monday, March 16, who said that they got their $16 taxes decreased: No, you didn't. They decreased the withholding tables, but not the rate. And if you actually are a person who pays taxes, this is taxable. The $16 you're getting, you will be taxed at the end of the year if you are someone who actually pays taxes. It's not a gift. It's nothing but a scam. So enjoy your 16 bucks, but it's probably gonna cost you anywhere from $4 to $10 to enjoy that 16 bucks from Obama. Enjoy."

- Maugansville




"We would like for the town to be cleaned up. In the last four years, if Mr. McCleaf was such a fantastic mayor, I think he would have the town, especially on Potomac Street as you come in, cleaned up. I think that is a must, instead of worrying so much about the canal."

- Williamsport
