Mail Call - Nov. 18

November 18, 2011

“Hey, make sure you don’t miss the best new comedy series on TV this fall: the Republican debates.”

— Hagerstown



“Congratulations, Hagerstown and Washington County. You criticize our few unions. This area is mostly nonunion. You should be proud that half of Washington County students are below poverty level.”

— Keedysville



“I’d like to thank the two ladies who found my wallet at the Davis Funeral Home in Smithsburg, Md. ... I appreciate that, and may the good Lord always look over you two angels. I tell you, I’m sure glad and happy. God bless both of you.”

— Falling Waters, W.Va.



“The caller’s right. The (Occupy) Wall Street aren’t bums. When they have riots and sex and rapes and crime, they’re not bums, they’re criminals. Half should be in jail, the other half should be in the zoo. How can you possibly compare them to the patriotic, well-behaved tea party, who’s trying to do good, against the other ones who are just trying to do evil? ‘Bums’ isn’t bad enough.”

— Hagerstown



“It is getting close to the middle of the month, and I have not read one thing in the paper regarding November being Native American Month. I certainly hope someone recognizes the Native Americans’ contributions to this country.”

 — Hagerstown



“I see where in this morning’s paper about closing downtown businesses. That’s all over, that’s been going on for years. Taxes are going up and people are moving out, and the tax structure’s getting smaller, so they have to keep raising it on the taxpayer, to cover the money that people’s moving out of the city of Hagerstown. And the county is spending more money ... they got all these projects they’re spending on, and everybody’s leaving Hagerstown. The population is lower than it’s probably been since 1960.”
