Mail Call - Jan. 27

January 26, 2012

“As an independent, I don’t know — I have no dogs in this fight coming up in November, but when I see the knuckleheads that are in the Republican Party, there isn’t a single one I’d vote for, so I guess I’m voting for President Obama. I mean, you got one who never tells the truth. He flip-flops more than the flip-flops I wear. You got another one who is sadistic, you got another one who can’t remember what day it is. He’s so far to the right, he’d only take care of Christians. Anybody that’s not, heck with them. So I think I’ll just vote for Obama.”
— Hagerstown

“I just wanted to call to congratulate the ... construction company on the fine job at Valley Mall intersection. Nice to see a local company get the work. Also, whoever set the traffic light should get all in their territory, because it’s the best job I ever seen.”
— Mount Lena

“Thanks, Hagerstown caller, for unintentionally proving me right, with your imaginary quotes and projection. I don’t want and never said I want the EPA abolished, and seniors limited to spending $15,000 a year on health care, while you did, in fact — don’t deny it; it was right there in Mail Call — actually call for the paper to stop printing my calls. And by insulting me. ... I couldn’t care less if you think I’m un-American, un-Christian, etc. I may be wrong, but you’ll never convince me or prove it by insulting me. In fact, you’ll only reinforce my conviction that I’m right. So thanks for that, caller, from a proud, conservative woman. Never assume, caller.”
— Frederick, Md.

“I’m calling about the recent calls in Mail Call about the three comics that were taken out. I believe The Herald-Mail did run a readers’ poll to decide what comics should stay in and which comics should be eliminated. Unfortunately, those three comics, I guess, were rated low enough that they were not left in. And there’s an old saying, be thankful for what you have and don’t really fret about what you don’t have, and I look through the paper ... so the people should just chill out and be happy with the comics that they have left. With the rising price of print paper and ink, it’s great they even have some comics in the paper.”
— Hagerstown
