Mail Call - April 8

April 08, 2011

“The real reason that we install automated phone answering systems with 95 options: We don’t really want to deal with people or their issues.”

— Boonsboro



“This is to the caller who was complaining in today’s paper, March 29, about the condition of the city streets in Hagerstown. I would recommend that he take a ride up west to Cumberland, Md., my hometown, and just ride around the main streets of the city, and then when he gets back to Hagerstown he will appreciate the great condition his city streets are in.”

— Cumberland, Md.



“I had a thought. They’re saying about our Social Security and all, and Medicare and all is going to pot. I can’t understand why they couldn’t get some of this Lotto, this Mega Lotto and all that, and pull a couple million at a time back into that, Social Security and all, so to build that up, instead of giving the player all that money.”

— Boonsboro



“I think the Hancock police need to be aware that on this back road here, National Pike, up where Woodmont Road is, someone’s dropping their trash. There’s a chair sitting there on National Pike, and also on the road to the dump, someone dropped a mattress and box spring where that old house is, on the left side going towards the dump. They put it in with the other stuff that was in that old house. You need to keep your eye out for these people dumping trash and stuff up here.”

— Hancock



“Everyone has an opinion. Opinions on issues are always debatable. Tim Rowland’s opinion on legislative decision to stop gay marriage in Maryland is off-base. He may have thought he had hit a home run, but he failed to pass third. When the powers-that-be checked, he missed the bag; therefore, was called out.”

— Hagerstown



“With the arrival of spring, the flowers are starting to bloom around the fountain at Park Circle, City Park. What a great gift to the community from the Hagerstown Garden Club. Soon the water in the fountain will begin to flow, thus hiding the figures of the beautiful women supporting the fountain. What a shame. Welcome, spring.”

“As for unions being necessary, yes, they are. The problem, though, is they get greedy and never satisfied, for which the consumer pays dearly. Unions reach a point where they must demand more, to justify their own existence.”

— Hagerstown
