Mail Call

September 07, 2010

"They say the casinos bring in money for schools, roads and all kinds of charities. Yes, it does. Where do they think it comes from? The people that can't afford it, to lose it; rent money, house payments, food and family hardships."

-- Hagerstown




"Jesus does not condone divorce. He said to divorce and remarry is adultery. I'm not saying this is fair. I'm just saying that if you use the Bible to back your prejudices against a certain group, be careful. You might find a few passages that go against your own lifestyle. Anybody out there have a tattoo? Check the Bible, and ask yourself, should our lawmakers get involved?"

-- Boonsboro




"To the person concerned about the $75 charged to rent a trap from the humane society: You can buy a trap ... for less than half of that, and then you'll have it to continue catching animals if you need to."

"To the citizens of Washington County: You have a very important decision to make on Sept. 14 and in November. Remember, wisdom and knowledge are two God-given gifts to have. Use them wisely. Sen. Don Munson has. Thank you, Don. You have our family's vote."

-- Hagerstown




"I'm glad this global warming stuff is just a plot cooked up by the Democrats -- or maybe we should say 'broiled' up. Again we have worldwide record temperatures. It is not a joke. It's serious, and we need to do something about it."

-- Williamsport




"Concerning Mr. Shank and Munson, I've yet to make up my mind between these two gentlemen. Mr. Shank is quite talkative, but I confess, I can't recall hearing Mr. Munson speak, except at the beginning of every legislative session when he says times are hard, don't expect much. Explain to me his refusal to debate Mr. Shank. What is he afraid of, if he's so proud of his record? We the people love a debate and cast a wary eye to any candidate who refuses with an imperial and 'entitled' dismissal."

-- Hagerstown




"I'm calling to report that I was at the Glenn Beck rally on Saturday the 28th, and I have never, ever seen anything like that in my life. There must have been a million people there; women, children, older people. I've just never seen an outpouring like that. Friendly people, blacks, whites, you name it, they were there. Indians, colors just don't matter. It was just a wonderful, loving experience. I wish that they would do that every year. That was so wonderful. I've never had an experience like that before in my life."

-- Hagerstown




"Chris Shank, you lost my vote. This week I received two of the sleaziest mailings from your staff smearing Don Munson. They made me sick. Your smear campaign just reeks of big city politics as usual, something that those of us in Western Maryland who actually still have morals are mighty adverse to. Negative campaigning doesn't work with me, Chris. And you have the gall to criticize Munson for his outstanding ability to reach out and compromise with the opposing party, so that bills get passed instead of stalled."

-- Boonsboro




"Could someone please tell me why all the pools are closed the past few weeks since schools have started? It's really not fair to other people like college students and parents who would like to go to the pool during the day. There should be something they can do to keep them open, especially when it's really hot outside so we can cool off."

-- Hagerstown




"I agree with the Mail Call person who talked about Chris Shank's record. Where is his record? He has been in Annapolis for 12 years and has not accomplished anything in that time. You would think if he had a record he would run on what he had accomplished during that time. Shank's platform is nothing. Vote for Munson, a dedicated senator who works for the people of Washington County."

-- Washington County




"After reading the editorial (in) Sept. 2 Herald-Mail, on Munson, the clear choice in your upcoming election, I am convinced this will be a classic. Seems a vote for Munson is a vote for politics as usual, wheel, dealing and kissing up ability so you can get yours. A vote for Shank is a vote for let's do what's right, and to Hades with this wheeling and dealing, we've had enough. This election of yours will tell a lot about the people in District 2. My question (is) are you all tired or content with politics as usual? Or are you going to get yours and straighten out politics, too? This will be amusing. Personally, I will vote for any politician that has had enough and is the bull in the china closet, willing (to) shake this nation."

-- Falling Waters, W.Va.
