Mail Call - Dec. 26

December 25, 2011

“I agree something should be done about the fences in front of the restaurants down there in the theater district, on downtown South Potomac Street. It’s an accident waiting to happen.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m a pet owner, with more than one pet in my household, so I am a regular at the vet’s office. I have noticed when a pet owner is given their bill at the reception desk, the first thing that comes out of their mouths is a long sigh, and then the word, ‘What?’. ‘What?’ follows. I’ve said the word ‘What?’ many times.”
— Clear Spring

“I was driving into Hagerstown today, west to east, coming in off Cearfoss Pike onto Salem Avenue. Well, a vehicle turned in to Salem Avenue school there, almost rolled over, they were going so fast trying to get in there, going way too fast for Salem Avenue. Then the next block down, where Nottingham is, the light was green for everybody. Somebody ran through the stop light. There’s a traffic signal there, and they went right through the red light. Typical day driving in the city.”
— Hagerstown

“Since this paper took a hard turn to the left, the only thing worthwhile reading anymore is the comics.”
— Smithsburg area

“Anyone who can’t see the difference between the Occupiers and the tea party is not very smart. The Occupiers have had over 4,000 arrests, including at least three-plus deaths, many rapes, crimes and violence, and just plain filth. The tea party had none of these things happen at any of their gatherings. By the way, President Obama and several Democrats approved of the Occupiers. Come on, who would you rather have running our country?”
— Hagerstown

“I’m terribly sorry that the person who called from Hagerstown, their dog’s very ill. Please call around to the different veterinarians and the hospitals and see if there’s any of the hospitals out of town in the bigger cities that will help you with some kind of a plan. Surely there’s something there that might be helpful. Please let us know how your dog is doing.”
— Washington County

“There you go, Republicans, there’s your candidates. They’re going to take care of the average American. One of them’s placing $10,000 bets, and the other one’s got a half a million dollar debt run up at Tiffany’s. I’m sure they’re going to keep us in mind. Good luck voting.”
— Hagerstown

“With Newt Gingrich leading in almost every poll, it shows the Republicans are truly scraping the bottom of the barrel.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“I just want to give myself a big pat on the back. See, all year long, I eat Happy Meals, and just today I donated all the prizes to Toys for Tots. It was a big bagful. I don’t have any kids. I surely do feel good.”
— Boonsboro

“I’m responding to the writer from Hagerstown about the actual estimated electric bills. My advice is try reading your electric (meter) yourself, which you can do. I do that myself every month.”
— Jefferson, Md.

“I would just like to comment on the beautiful Christmas lights at the park in Williamsport. They have done such a tremendous job, to give a little cheer to people in the area this year. The lights are absolutely gorgeous, and I think Hagerstown should probably follow suit next year.”
— Hagerstown

“I’ve called before about these political rants coming out of Frederick. I don’t why you’re publishing them. They’re not Washington County, for one things, and they’re disturbing to read. And I’ll have to check this to see if I continue reading it, if you continue publishing these.”
— Hagerstown

“Certainly glad one reader has the knowledge that President Obama has put us in a much worse position than we were before he took office. I’m sick and tired of his blaming everyone except himself for the catastrophic position in which he has put our country. ... He has lost all of our worldwide respect. Get rid of him. Save our country.”
— Williamsport

“What is with all these Christmas lights this year? Don’t get me wrong, I really like to see them, but since they were put up at Halloween, I’m kind of tired of looking at them now. The ones at City Park are beautiful. But let’s get back to where Christmas was thought about after Thanksgiving and could be enjoyed.”
— Hagerstown
