Mail Call - April 25

April 24, 2013

“What is the matter with our leaders here in America, that they’re so afraid to call a terrorist what they really are, which would be a terrorist? They are people, terrorists are people who hide behind little kids and women. They would take their life just as quick as they would a man’s life. They don’t care who it is. They are out to bury America, and it seems like all we do is try to appease them. So if the other leaders, if the leaders are afraid to call them a terrorist, I’m not. They are terrorists, and they’re nothing but people that the main goal is to bury America.”
— Sharpsburg

“On April 15, which is undoubtedly the highest-volume mailing day of the year, the post office was closed and locked at the regular time. And why couldn’t they have stayed open for a few more hours, until maybe 9 p.m. to accommodate taxpaying citizens?”
— Hagerstown

“I’d like to respond to a piece in Mail Call. This is on ‘Del. Parrott needs a lesson in politics.’ This is from a person from Sharpsburg. Well, this man, to me, is a good politician. He tries to help the American people. You must like this governor we have in the state of Maryland, but I think he stinks. And Mr. Parrott, I will tell you, I will help you to fight what this governor had passed. I think the people of the state of Maryland need to vote on this. I know we got a rough time, because of people in Baltimore and everything, but we can do it. We can get the people’s signatures.”
— Hagerstown

“I don’t understand why there’s a need for a dog park. People with dogs, or any pets, should not have them if they can’t keep them and take care of them themselves. They’re just like children. So why do they need a dog park? If they can’t take care of them, don’t have them.”
— Hagerstown

“On the Boston Marathon, think about this. We are allowing these bombings and tragedies to happen, for the reason that the U.S. is a free-for-all country, free for all. Think about it. Anyone can come into this country and do whatever they want to do. No president or government or law enforcement can control the amount of people that are in the U.S. There’s too many people of all kinds to control ... in order to stop crime, pedophilia, drugs, child abuse. It’s already gone too far. We cannot stop what the U.S. is continuing to do, in only slapping hands for these crimes. Please think about this.”
— Hagerstown

“The person who said there were at one time four beautiful theaters downtown was absolutely right. I worked at the Colonial Theater in 1947, until they had the fire that burned it out, but they later rebuilt. But it didn’t last long as a theater, because along came television.”
— Maugansville

We people of South Pointe have been hearing this all along. When they put the Funkstown bypass in, are they going to change the name of South Pointe to Gary World?”
— South Pointe Drive

“This is in reference to another field of dreams by the city council, on the baseball stadium. When are we going to wake up? Eighty days a year they’re playing, and it doesn’t bring in that kind of money, I don’t care what anybody says. And where is all that convention and visitors money that was supposed to be set aside? Over the years we’ve been collecting on this tax for motel rooms. Show me the money from there ... and who’s going to put up money for the baseball stadium.”
— Hagerstown

“Today is Wednesday, April 17, and I’m reading Mail Call. I see where people are disgusted about the trash pickup. I agree 100 percent, along with thousands of other people who called in last year. I think the trash should be picked up twice a week, and the recycling once a week. We got enough trash cans sitting up and down the street, and blue bins, and it’s time to change. Not only that, the odor out of the trash cans is totally ridiculous in the summertime ... and the city ought to reconsider taking up the trash twice a week.”
— North End
