Mail Call - Feb. 10

February 09, 2011

"Texting while driving has risen to new heights. Yesterday I passed a young man on a moped, driving on the shoulder where there were still patches of snow and ice. Nothing wrong with this — except he didn't have any hands on the bike. Instead, he was using both hands to text. This is not the first time I've seen someone texting while driving. I don't care what they are driving; car, moped, or bike — people should be smart enough to know that their attention needs to be on the road and their surroundings."

— Sharpsburg


"Regarding the headline 'Soldier shares stories of serving in Afghanistan with Pa. students,' I was just really curious how many Pa. students were in Afghanistan with the soldier."

— Falling Waters, W.Va.


"To the person who took my cross pendant and necklace ... it makes me wonder what kind of person you really are to take something like that."

— Hagerstown


"This is on electric companies, utility companies. I see where Maryland wants to start a thing, putting pressure on utility companies about outages. What I don't like about it is, and I don't think it's right, is that they're going to fine these utility companies if they don't meet the standards and don't get the electric on, their fines will be directed back to the customers. I don't think that's right. I think the newspaper ought to put it in 'What do you think?' and see how many people agree with me."

— Hagerstown


"Tuesday, Feb. 1, Tim Rowland's column: It was interesting, until you got to the last paragraph, when he makes a comment about everyone else gets something interesting with climate change, like floods, typhoons and blizzards, and all we get is cold weather in winter and hot weather in the summer. That is very insensitive and cruel, and I think he needs to apologize for that comment. Those people lost lives, homes, all kinds of things."

— Hagerstown


"What they need to do is start worrying about our polluted rivers and oceans, because without water, nobody's going to live. President Obama needs to worry about 2011, 2012, not 2035. That's too far down the road to even worry about right now. Last thing is I wish people would slow down, with this bad weather. They were flying like they're nuts. There's black ice out there."

— Hancock
