Mail Call - April 23

April 22, 2013

“Many thanks to The Herald-Mail, for finally publishing, as seen on April 13, a front page without a robbery, murder, arson, or other low-life activity. I have never understood why pictures and stories such as these would be on the front page of a newspaper. The front page should be used for good news and recognizing good deeds.”
— Hagerstown

“I hope a lot of people who are pushing for new gun laws realize that your politicians, your celebrities, the rich and the elite, they have police protection any time they want. Just look around. Any time you see a politician anywhere, he has some kind of police protection. I’m not talking about our delegates, I’m talking about governors, and further up the ladder. Well, I guess the people have it if they need it. But the bottom line is, ask any policeman or correctional officer, the present gun laws don’t work. Do you think these new ones are going to help any? I seriously doubt it.”
— Hagerstown

“I was just reading The Herald-Mail editorial about the correctional officers, and how they were bringing them to justice since they were found guilty or they pleaded guilty to abusing a inmate’s rights, by beating him. What I don’t understand and what I wish The Herald-Mail would tell us is why when the state investigated this, nothing was done to these correctional officers, but now that the federal government’s involved, things are being done. Did the state not do a good job when they investigated it? Did they sweep this under the rug, or what?”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to give my utmost appreciation to the men and women of the surrounding fire and EMS companies who are now protecting the Fairplay community. Thank you very much for doing what you have done, standing up for yourselves, and doing what’s right for the community. It’s time for the leadership of Fairplay to step down, so that we can get our fire company back to where it’s supposed to be.”
— Fairplay

“This is about the Mail Call about the mean mothers. Just have a statement to make. You know, we see a lot of children going around, one in six are going hungry, and yet the mothers have their nails done, their hair done, everything’s done, they’ve got the best of everything on, yet the children go hungry. They expect everybody else to take care of the children, to feed them, to clothe them and do everything else for them. They want the children, but they don’t want the responsibility.”
— Hagerstown

“Thank God for the National Rifle Association. We should have more organizations like that, which are trying to protect our constitutional rights. Once again, thank God for the NRA.”
— Washington County

“I would like to thank the older lady and her granddaughter who returned my cellphone to me on Monday. It was a very expensive cellphone that you found in the middle of the street at Halfway Park. I greatly appreciate it, because I would not have the money to buy another cellphone. Again, thank you very much. It just shows that there are still good people.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.

“There was a Williamsport caller who was equating the knife attacks to outlawing the guns in Maryland. I also have been hearing a lot of this on conservative talk radio. In the knife attack, nobody died; 14 were wounded. But in the gun attack, there were a lot of children who died. You can’t even equate the two. I’d rather be attacked by a crazy man with a knife than a crazy man with a gun any day. A child could shoot you with a gun and kill you, but I doubt they could fight you with a knife and kill you.”
— Hagerstown

“As a retired college professor with three engineering degrees, I can honestly say that Gov. O’Malley’s wind farm would be laughable, if it wasn’t at taxpayers’ expense. There is a potential solution to the energy question, but it will not come from tilting at windmills.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m sitting here reading in Tuesday’s paper, Catherine A. Skaggs’ letter to the editor about Vinnie DiCola and Rocky’s Pizza. I agree with her tremendously. They just did that guy, they gave him a bad deal. I just don’t appreciate that.”
— Hagerstown

“I was a spectator at the Washington County Academic Team competition on Saturday, and I noticed that there were no history questions. How can you have an academic tournament with no history questions?”
— Hagerstown
