Mail Call - Aug. 15

August 14, 2013

“I’m a big Yankees fan, but A-Rod has to go. And never compare him to Derek Jeter, because Derek Jeter is a super ballplayer, and person.”
— Williamsport

“Hats off to the mayor and city council for finally making a stand on something, without having to do a study or paying for an outside group to do it. I’m referring to disbanding the food for soul downtown in the city market lot. ... It’s not the place to hand out food. They can find another place, I’m sorry.”
— Hagerstown

“I’d like to know if the U.S. still has a vice president, and if we do, where is he?”
— Hagerstown

“This is on Gov. O’Malley’s environmental plan. Well, you people in Maryland better wake up. We’re going to be like Detroit and going to be bankrupt. O’Malley, with his environmental plan, it’s not going to work. It’s just going to cost poor old taxpayers more money. And as far as this Catoctin Group, the environmental man, he says he’s been studying this thing since 1974. You know something, everything the environmental people have been doing over the last several years, things are getting worse, not better.”
— Hagerstown

“I don’t think our forefathers would want a redo. I think they would want to wage war and declare independence again, given this day and the way things are.”
— Funkstown

“I’m really tired of reading about how muscular 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was, as if that justifies George Zimmerman walking in there with a gun and killing this man. You know, if George Zimmerman never had a gun, he would probably be too scared to get out of his vehicle to follow anyone. No one should be followed by anyone and be stalked. I don’t care if he was a full-grown man. Anyway, Trayvon Martin was still only 17. Trayvon Martin was a 17-year-old boy. He could not drink, he could not vote, he could not join the military. So he had no right to die that way.”
— Hagerstown

“I’d like to comment and ask about when they’re going to prosecute those guys who beat that fella in jail so desperately. They never prosecuted the rest of them, and they really put it to the other ones. Let’s hear about these other guys, OK?”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“It must be nice to have a judge for a father, and lawyer friends. No wonder Mr. Zimmerman wasn’t arrested right away. This trial was political.”
— Hagerstown

“Dress codes: Why isn’t piercing included in the dress code? Ears, nose and lips are being pierced, and that’s just an accident waiting to happen, if someone pulls on them.”
— Warfordsburg, Pa.

“It’s nice to read about the police going to crack down on the texting laws while you’re driving, but you know, now they don’t enforce the laws that are on the books, like turn signals, lights on when it’s raining, complete stop at red lights. So pardon me, but I’ll believe the enforcement of the texting law when I see it. And I wish they’d enforce all of them.”
— Halfway

“I was just wondering if someone might know if the town of Hancock has some kind of installation on the Round Top Road west of Hancock, because there is a tremendous amount of Hancock municipal vehicles out there each day until dark. If anyone knows, please put it in Mail Call.”
— Hancock

“I see on Oct. 1, they’re going to start to enforce the cellphone law. This cannot come soon enough, far as I’m concerned. I feel if they enforce this enough, in a couple months they might have enough money to build the stadium.”
— Hagerstown

“I went to North Hagerstown High School, graduated in 1988, and I heard over the grapevine, I think it’s the 24th, 25th ... 25 years, somewhere in Clear Spring, and it’s at a person’s field or something, and I was wondering if anybody had the address.”
— Hagerstown

“I think it’s time for the EDC to take a long walk on a short pier.”
— Hagerstown
