“Has anybody read The Herald-Mail paper today, the 17th? They talk about guns. Now they’re even showing you how to load guns in the comic strip. What is this world coming to? Violence, I don’t know, I am amazed. And they say that there’s going to be a gun law. Well, they should have a comic strip law too, then.”

“Wouldn’t it be nice to know how much was spent planting, watering, staking and mulching trees along Interstate 70 since spring? What program is paying for this?”

“Just a question. I’m kind of curious. When a president is re-elected for a second term, without any break in between, just like President Obama and Franklin Roosevelt, and several others, is it in the Constitution where they have to take the oath of office again?

I’m just thinking it’s such a waste of time and money to have another inauguration, to be sworn in again. Just curious.”
“I’m calling in reference to two different people who called in, it was Monday’s paper, Jan. 15, about Potomac Edison. Well, I’ll go a little deeper than that. I’m a senior citizen, I’m in bad health, I’ll soon be 75, and I have all my receipts for the past 2 1/2 years that I have lived in Hagerstown, almost to the city line. I live on Downsville Pike in Hagerstown. And anyway, my bill that I got that was due in January is $239.87, and the highest, any bill that I have had was $90 when I first moved ... in the summer, to cool the apartment down, and no more than $51. Something has got to be done.”
