“I want to thank the honest person who found my purple Kindle at the ... mall, and turned it in to the service desk. You don’t know how much that means to me, that someone was that honest. Thank you very much, again.”
— Hyattsville, Md.
“Does anyone know of an initiative to show respect and appreciation for law enforcement personnel, by replacing a white porch or deck light with a blue bulb?”

“Regarding the Herald-Mail editorial of Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, the comment that $25 million is already sitting on the table: Where is it? Where is this table? I’d like to visit it, touch it and feel it. Don’t count the $25 million until it’s in the city coffers.”

“I guess the Limbaugh boys and other columnists are happy that President Obama won. They now have a job for four more years, of writing a column in newspapers, of bashing our president. If Mitt Romney would have won, they wouldn’t have had anything to write about, or bash Mitt because they just spent the last six months or so telling everyone what a great person, what a great president Mitt Romney would have been.”
“This is to all the callers who keep calling in and criticizing and insulting the people who voted for Barack Obama. They keep calling us takers and welfare class. I make a six-figure income, I work hard, I have ever since I was 15. I’ve never taken anything from the government, yet I voted for Barack Obama. They’re going to continue to lose if they think they’re only losing to welfare people. The people who voted in Barack Obama, a lot of them are hardworking.”
“‘Selfish’ — hundreds, hundreds of elderly and disabled and residents along Summit Avenue are ‘selfish,’ because they don’t want 80 to 90 days of absolute horror, from the lights and the noise and the crowds and the traffic and their criminals in their lives. That’s ‘selfish.’ It takes (gall) for somebody to call in and say that they should just put up with it, so the rest of us can do what? Three hundred, 400, maybe, shows up for a game, indulges in all that nonsense.”
