We must fight
"In response to the Rant April 1 regarding Clarke. Soreheads Clarke, O'Neill and Madeline Albright are trying to play gotcha with President Bush. The number one priority we face is protection from terrorists. The economy won't matter if we have no place to work. People need to realize that we never fought a war like this and that it will go on for a long time. I thank God for a leader that will take the fight to them. Appeasement won't work with terrorists. It boils down to the fact that do we want a Chamberlain or a Churchill to guide us. Our choice should be clear. Our survival is at stake."
A great center
"This Rave goes to the director Jennifer Ezekiel at the Maggy Campbell Gingerbread House. I had never heard of the center until I went to substitute. The first time meeting Jennifer, I watched how she would take people's children to the doctor appointments when they couldn't. When mothers were sick, she and another teacher would go and clean her house. When certain parents couldn't afford Christmas, Jennifer made sure the children did for Christmas. My child hated different centers until she started at Maggy Campbell. She just fell in love with Jennifer and all the teachers. I believe this happened because she felt the love that flowed from Jennifer and the teachers. I believe that Maggy Campbell will always be blessed because of the genuine concern and love for the children and not for money. Keep up the good work."
Stop the madness
"Can we stop the madness with the smoking? I would love to see the city and county commissioners get together and pass some kind of ordinance banning cigarettes at city and county ballparks. It's ridiculous. You go there to watch a kid play ball and you can't even enjoy the game because parents are smoking. They should at least pass an ordinance to make them smoke outside the gated area or in one designated location over there. You can't watch a game and breathe. It's killing my lungs and it is hurting the kids trying to play ball. Please stop the madness with the smoking."
"To the person that feels like arresting a drug dealer will get drugs off the street, they will never get off the street until this world is over. Anytime we have a drug dealer convicted, do you know his legacies carry on? We don't have one drug dealer out there, we have about six or seven because they take his customers and split them up."
