Mail Call

July 14, 2010

"I saw where six more Americans just died in Afghanistan. Would someone please give me a good reason why?"

- Greencastle, Pa.




"Please just save the dam at Devil's Backbone. It costs more to tear it down than just to repair it. Without the dam at Devil's Backbone, there isn't going to be a park. It's just going to be boring, and no one's going to want to go there."

- Hagerstown




"Those readers of this column who continue to support this federal administration, I'm afraid wouldn't recognize a con man if he was sitting in your kitchen. The Marxist leanings of all his advisers are bent on bringing down the economy of this great nation. You are not intelligent enough to recognize the truth of which Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh speak."

- Hagerstown




"Everybody's complaining about the government, federal government spending so much money. I think the people that are receiving welfare from the government probably need to be drug tested, and if they do come up drug tested, they should freeze their welfare checks, not freeze the unemployment checks."

- Hagerstown




"This is to the Greencastle caller coming onto I-81. Are you out of your mind? This is a yield sign, not a go sign."

- Hagerstown




"Read Matthew chapter 6 very carefully."

- Fiddlersburg




"My comment is, isn't it ironic that we have a police officer running for county commissioner and he says that he will be accessible; 'You'll always have access to me,' but then he doesn't disclose his address? ... Sounds like just another professional politician to me."

- Halfway




"To the caller who wants us to move over to the left when we see you coming down the on-ramp to I-81: I'm sorry if you consider us inconsiderate because we won't move over, but you need to go back to Driver's Ed 101, because you are the one who needs to yield. I'm tired of inconsiderate drivers rewriting the driving rules to suit themselves."

- Hagerstown




"I live on Bower Avenue in Halfway. Recently Bower Avenue and Sterling Road were paved. ... They performed an excellent job, both in their paving and traffic control operations. I just wanted to publicly say thank you to this company for their efforts and their work ... I've had 44 years experience in engineering and construction inspection prior to my retirement, and I recognize expertise when I see it."

- Halfway




"This is to the Greencastle, Pa., caller who wants people to move over on 81 so they can come off the exit ramp. If you remember back to your driver's test, there was this little thing called a yield sign, which means slow down and possibly stop until it's safe to merge into traffic. You don't have the right of way; the people on 81 have the right of way, so learn how to yield."

- Hagerstown




"I'm calling in reference to the person that said 'Please, please, if you see us coming down off the ramp on 81, move over to the left lane if you can.' I don't recall in anywhere in the laws that states that we have to get over. There's a yield sign at the end of that ramp."

- Greencastle, Pa.




"As a Christian, I am appalled at all the support of the Arizona immigration law. I have prayed about it, I have read about it, and for the life of me I cannot see where this is doing any good to give the glory of God. We need to stop it. Let those poor people alone, and just pray that they do the right thing. The immigration law is wrong, and it does not make our Lord and Savior happy."

- Boonsboro




"I just wonder if the Hagerstown Mail Caller really ever reads a newspaper. He said that the Democrats control the House and the Senate and they can pass anything they want to. Have you not paid attention to the Republicans' constantly filibustering and blocking anything the Democrats try to move? Right now, they're blocking the extension of unemployment for millions of Americans who have lost their jobs because of Bush's bad economy. You better pay attention."

- Sharpsburg




"To the gun-owning caller on July 6: If Mayor Daley were to use a tactical board with pins representing illegal gun use, I am sure a pattern would be seen as to gun violence. Tougher gun laws on citizens never stop gun violence. Education of guns and looser gun laws for law abiding citizens have, always. The only gun law I could ever support is, showing and or passing a test showing proper use for the purchased weapon, including ability to hit the target and knowing what happens to the projectile after impact with the intended target."

- Falling Waters, W.Va.
