Mail Call - March 13

March 12, 2012

“Bring on the rails for trails. I can’t think of a better thing to do with our tax money than improve where we live.”
— Hagerstown


“I wish that people would check on their computers, because I know they’ve got one, and find out the truth about President Obama not wanting to drill, which in fact, if you look up all the oil rigs that he has proposed, they’re drilling more than they have been in the last 30 years. So what the Republicans are telling you is all bogus.”
— Hagerstown


“To the person from Berkeley Springs, W.Va., who doesn’t think that Leonard Pitts’ linguistics expertise should appear in our local paper: Your problem is that you obviously misinterpret the words you read. Mr. Pitts is an outstanding journalist, a Pulitzer Prize winner, a champion Afro-American editorialist, whose understanding of the many social issues concerning Americans is to be admired and applauded.”
— Hagerstown


“This comment is for the caller in the Thursday, March 1, edition of Mail Call who made the statement, ‘Typical Republican. Anything to make the president look bad.’ He doesn’t need the Republicans’ help, because he’s doing a fine job of that on his own.”
— Greencastle, Pa.


“To the caller from Hagerstown who said that the Republicans are using this for a political scheme against President Obama, because of gas prices, and they said that just a few weeks ago gas prices were really, really low: What country were you in? And remember, the Democrats and the liberal news media tore President Bush up about the gas prices, and they were never this high at this time of the year.”
— Boonsboro


“Why would we want to vote for a Democrat for the 6th District of Maryland? We have enough of them in Congress. They’re already driving the car into the ditch — no, I’m sorry, they’re driving it over the wall into the river.”
—Brightwood Acres East


“To the caller from Hagerstown on March 1: If you were invited by the king of all kings to come to his house, would you wash your face and comb your hair, put on your best suit and tie, or would you just wear your old cut-offs and tank top?”
— Berkeley Springs, W.Va.
