Sound Off

Fads: Thirty years ago, when I was in my twenties, the fad was peroxided hair done up in an Afro. Today my hair has grown out and I’ve changed the style. Today’s fad is the tattoo. Thirty years from now, that fad will also be gone, but those shoulder-to-wrist tattoos will still be there, embarrassing the wearer.

Dumb argument: Sure there are other jobs you can get without an education. For example, digging ditches, trimming trees, mowing grass, etc. Just kidding. You have to admit, though, this whole argument is pointless. Stay in school.

Going bankrupt: I ride Harleys and always have known that it is not if you lay your bike down, but when. Same for our country. It is no longer if our country will fail, but is now a matter of when it will go bankrupt.

Savannah port: Georgia’s governor has already set money aside up front, the Army Corps will soon start despite the lack of funding now, and the administration will pay their agreed upon share later. So what's your point, is it Obama-bashing time again? Get some more info before you go public.

Trade Obama: Putin takes slices of Georgia, half of Ukraine in two days. Obama gives back Iraq and Afghanistan, cuts recon planes 25 percent. I want to trade Obama and California for just Putin.

Other foot: Funny how Senator Feinstein complains when a federal agency abuses their power and it affects her, but not a peep when it affects the other side of the aisle. Boo hoo hoo.

Quoting Hugo: The next time you are very cold and step into a hot shower, or you are very tired and crawl into a warm bed, be thankful for what you have, not resentful for what you have not. Victor Hugo: "Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment and poverty are battlefields ...."

One turn lane: Turning from west on Bullsboro to north on the bypass, why are there two turn signals but only one turn lane? The other day a second turn lane would have saved me part of the three signal cycles and the better part of ten minutes it took me to make that turn.

You didn’t get it: The writer critical of John Winters’ column couldn't recognize satire from reality, so he attacks the satirist? What an angry guy. April Fool’s Day is coming up, so here's hoping he doesn't get too confused.

He didn’t get it: The writer was correct: John Winters did not dish up a good helping of irony. Winters showed he does not understand what the law is all about. It is the same law Bill Clinton passed in 92.

No more Obama: I hate to say it, but if there were an election tomorrow, Obama would win again. It’s not about what's right for Americans anymore. Obama has not accomplished anything for the cause of the good but at least we don't hear as much complaining, but I bet we will the next term.

Makes sense: I can surely understand why Grantville leaders support the behavioral hospital!
