Sound Off

Proper name: The proper title is Division of Family and Children Services, a Division of the Department of Human Services. Reporters should know better. Sound Off pundits, however, frequently speak out without knowing of what they speak.

Stop the threat: Law enforcement officers, when threatened, shoot to stop the threat. Any officer will fire as many rounds as it takes to stop the threat. Shooting an assailant in the knees or arms only works in bad westerns and, even worse, mafia movies.

Where is the protection? The police who are sworn to protect and serve do not exist anymore. They feel they are better than others. This will never change until people stand their ground and stop taking it. Protect yourself from them as you would anyone else.

Kudos: As a veteran I wanted to say thank for the article in Saturday's paper concerning depression in the military.

Help the vets: The serious problems that our veterans experience after they return home should never be forgotten.

Pew Research Center: More than a third (34%) of those who watch the liberal MSNBC in their homes also tune in to the conservative Fox News Channel. That is on their site. Where did you come up with 10 percent? Can't find that data. Oh wait, you are a liberal and made it up.

Time to change: Okay all you "insane" liberals, it's time to amend your crazy ideals. It's time to stop caring that children get fed, that women and minorities have equal rights, that everyone makes a livable wage, that everyone has access to proper health care, and that everyone gets a good education. Are you out of your minds?

Don’t get it: What a perversion of justice, truth and integrity for the media to broadcast the funeral of a thug!

Dictionary, please: I wish people would learn the difference between "flaunt" and "flout."

More to it: People need to be careful jumping on the bandwagon before the truth is out. There is so much more to the story with the teacher who was arrested for possession. Trust the people in charge and understand liking somebody and that somebody being in a position to influence children is two different things.

Phone drivers: Is there any truth to the theory that cell phones today have disconnected the turn signals in cars?

Come on, Zell: Has old Zell Miller lost his rudder? Just because Zell and Sam are good friends is not a good enough reason to give Harry Reid another vote. Georgia deserves better than that.

Here we go: The mayor of Grantville decides to run again. Let the circus continue. Canadian burger: Hurrah for Burger King daring Obama to stop them from going to Canada. We should all go with them.

Poor Obama: Does it matter to Obama that people think so little of him? His respect level is nil.
