Mail Call - Dec. 4

December 03, 2012

“I read in the newspaper on Monday, somebody asked where they could drop off used newspapers, who would like to have them, to use for various reasons, and said that they wanted to know where. I wanted to call in and say that (Promise Animal League) will use used newspapers if you drop them off. Go to Funkstown, outside of Funkstown, Route 40, and that’s where they’re in the back of the Next Dimensions restaurant parking lot.”
— Clear Spring

“In reference to the Friday, Nov. 23 (column) from Allan Powell, quoting Plutarch, he says an imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics. He’s looking for a utopia. I suggest that the esteemed professor emeritus find his utopia and go live there.”
— Hagerstown    
                                                                                                                      
“A Friday caller inquired about why it’s called ‘Black Friday,’ not something like ‘Good Friday.’ It’s all about the central meaning of this weekend of ‘celebration’ — the worship of retail. This is the day stores hope to go onto the ‘black,’ economically (red is debt, black is profit on balance sheets). Most retail businesses spend the first two-thirds of the year just earning back their ‘costs,’ and it’s only in the last months of the year, the ‘holiday’ season, that they hope to start to accumulate profits; ‘go into the black.’ ‘Good Friday’ is about people’s other gods.”
— Brownsville

“The American people clearly know who ran this country in the ditch: The Republican Party. Now the people will kick out Congress in 2014 and let the problem solvers move this country forward. Then real change will start for the American people.”
— Hagerstown

“I was shopping today at the Valley Mall, and I am amazed that there are still names of children for The Salvation Army ‘Angel of Hope’ tree.”
— Hagerstown

“I didn’t realize what a comedian David Limbaugh is. And if you don’t believe that, please read his column of Saturday, Nov. 24. It is hysterical.”
— Halfway

“The truth is, President Obama got a lot more votes than Mitt Romney, so he won. It’s time to accept it, move on, and hope Congress will do the right thing and solve some of the problems in this country. You know life goes on.”
— Greencastle, Pa.
