Mail Call - Oct. 11

October 10, 2012

“Tuesday morning, Oct. 2, here we go again. It’s raining, people are running with no headlights on, with the windshield wipers running. I do believe that is a law; windshield wipers running, you gotta have your headlights. It’s raining, like I said, and they’re running 85 or less, maybe, or more, I don’t know. They could hydroplane on the road, because of the oil. They’d rather take somebody’s life.”
— Hancock

“I’d just like to say, they’re talking about revitalizing the downtown area, they’re looking for businesses to go into the downtown area. I was downtown the other day and wanted to shop, and there is no parking available downtown. I finally was able to park on a meter, and ... if they want to revitalize the downtown area, they have to make parking available, the same way as if I were to go out to Valley Mall where they have thousands of places to park a car. I know myself, I wouldn’t even consider opening up a business downtown, because it’s obvious there’s no place to park.”
— Hagerstown

“Someone in your column inquired about John Delaney, who’s running against Roscoe in the sixth district. John Delaney is a very successful businessman. He’s worth $240 million. He’s only about 50 years old. After he graduated from Georgetown, he started three finance agencies that financed businesses that the banks wouldn’t take. His father was an electrician, he has three homes ... and so that’s John Delaney.”
— Hagerstown

“I just wonder, I’m listening to this stuff about the Libya ambassador getting killed, the three guys were with him, which I think is tragic, but what gets me, these Republicans want a big investigation, want somebody to lose their jobs and everything, but I didn’t hear a one of them say about Bush, with his lies, and Cheney, with their lies, taking these troops to Iraq and getting about 4,500 killed and about 100,000 Iraqis getting killed. Nobody says a word. They’re a bunch of phonies.”
— Hagerstown

“The trouble in the Mideast is the fact that we have a very weak president, and they know it. He would rather apologize and lie about the cause of the problem than to stand up and be a man and act strong. I hope we change this in the next election.”
— Williamsport
