Mail Call

"A very highly respected clinical psychologist concludes the following in the AMA journal: A man whose ring finger is longer than his index finger is more likely to have cheated, or will cheat on his wife, girlfriend or boyfriend. So ladies, pay attention. Men, keep your hands in your pockets after you check."

- Hagerstown




"I read with interest the article on autism and was disappointed that it did not mention that studies are finding heredity is a key factor. It is through the male line. Perhaps there could be a more in-depth article in the future."

- Hagerstown




"When is the town of Funkstown going to remove the tree that got knocked down in the storm about a week and a half ago? It's blocking the sidewalk where residents have to walk out around into the street to get by. And the Potomac Street diner, in your April 30 editorial, is not where CVS is. I grew up in that area."

"This is to the response to the Smithsburg caller that said the South Potomac diner was now where the CVS is on South Potomac Street. Where the CVS store is now, that was the Central Motors Dodge. And the South Potomac diner was just off the street a little bit farther than that. It was right beside where the Hagerstown Trust or Columbia Bank building is now."

"Tim Rowland's thinking is wrong. He equates effective lawmakers with getting bills passed and getting funding back to Washington County. I vote for your project, you vote for mine, politics as usual policy. That's how all the pork projects in Washington and Annapolis get passed. How about cutting spending statewide, with Washington County and all the other counties providing for themselves and not looking for a handout? Do we really need to rely on a bankrupt state with huge deficits to help us out?"

- Hagerstown




"Since the local inmate population, which is mostly not from Washington County and Hagerstown, since they can't be counted on the census for this area, well, then let their residence, their area of residence, their county, pay for their medical care, which is thousands of dollars per day. That's right, thousands of dollars per day in medicines. Just a suggestion. Maybe ... if these inmates aren't to be counted as Washington County residents in the census, then let their own original residence take care of their expenses, come out of their taxes, not our local taxes."

- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about all the comments of a 49-year-old woman that called in about freedom to listen to her music turned up real loud. I say go for it. I do the same thing. I'm 48 years old. If we're not hurting anybody, then we're fine."

- Greencastle, Pa.




"On Saturday, May 1, in the Thumbs Up section, a Thumbs Up was given to Alice Humphrey for all the work she did to bring great theater to the Blue Ridge Summit area. However, one name was left out of that Thumbs Up. It's that of Nina Rouzer. Nina is always there to be helpful and volunteering for the Blue Ridge Summit area."

- Blue Ridge Summit, Pa.




"You know, this is May 1. I have received my bills for the month. Lights, phone, water, sewer and cable have all gone up - very tactfully, just a couple of dollars, but to a senior citizen that means a lot."

- Hagerstown




"I'd like somebody to tell me what the difference is between the census that they sent out with all this information they want to know about you, and the Arizona law that's calling for - that people are calling this boycott for. They just want to know who's who. If you're an illegal, you got problems. If you're not illegal, don't worry about it. You should be legal to work in the U.S."

- Hancock




"You know what I don't understand? Any time something went wrong, like Katrina or anything, they blamed Bush. You know, the big-time media ... blamed Bush for not doing anything quickly. Well, you have this gigantic oil spill in the Gulf, and Obama really hasn't done anything. But see the media getting on him? No. Stuff just doesn't work - I mean, it just doesn't average out. You know, Bush got blamed for everything, and this guy can't do any wrong."

- Hagerstown




"It almost makes me sick when I watch those protesters about the illegal immigration on TV, the ones that are for it. Those illegal hellions have more rights and more benefits, more things handed to them than our American people have that have been in this country all their life. And they think this should be automatically handed over to them. And one more thing, you politicians, we're going to remember you, any of you guys support the protesters, support the illegal aliens, because us voters don't mind them being here legally, but if they're illegal, they shouldn't be here."

- Sharpsburg




"You know, I'm listening to all this baloney about these states, about these laws about the Hispanic and Mexican people come across the border. All I'm hoping and praying is that their ego will get the best of them, and they let these poor little kids alone in these schools and don't embarrass them and scare them to death. And let them alone and don't even try - in fact, I even heard one right-winger wants to go to schools and take them up and deport them. I think that's a crock."

- Hagerstown
