“We would like to give you our special thanks, to a young gentleman who was following our car near Leitersburg Saturday, for quite some distance, then at a stop sign, he blew his horn to let us know and get our attention. He got out of his car at a stop sign, and got the keys out of our trunk and gave them to our husband. We thank him. We are forever grateful to you, sir.”

“Well, you can tell that President Obama’s not for the military. I did 20 years in the Navy, and we still need the Navy. He said since we have modern equipment, well, every other country has modern equipment, too, so we have to stay up with them. Plus the Marine Corps still carries bayonets. I know a lot of Marines still in the military. Obama’s not too much up for the military. ... So best choice would be Mitt Romney.”

“The ‘Born Loser’ comic on Oct. 19 hit the nail on the head. He says, ‘I know how the politicians can solve the economic crisis. Just take all the money they plan to spend on advertising for their campaigns, and donate it to pay down the debt. We’d be solvent in no time at all.’”
“Does anyone know if it’s a scam when someone calls and wants to reduce your credit card payments to your credit card companies, and they say that if you let them get it reduced, then you pay them less than what you’re paying your credit card companies? I’d just like to know if that’s on the level, or if that’s some kind of scam.”
“This is about the article on Oct. 21, ‘Journey’s End,’ about the Pangborn estate. I would really love to see more articles done like that in The Herald-Mail, about Hagerstown’s history, and how people prospered in times gone past. It was very enlightening. Good job, Herald-Mail.”

“Just heard John McCain say he’s never seen anything so mismanaged as Presiden Obama’s economy. McCain should harken back to his selection of vice president, to name just one bad example of choice.”
“Again I say there’s nobody, not even Mitt Romney can get us out of the mess in four years that George Bush left us with. So give the president another chance. And then on top of that if there are 23 million people out of work why does Romney only want to put 12 million back to work. And I remember when my dad worked on the CCC rebuilding roads and bridges and schools and stuff like that and the world bounced back then, so give the president another chance. He’ll make it.”

“Well I see old Etch-a-Sketch Mitt is now no longer the severe conservative, he’s moving to the center once again showing the man has no convictions at all.”
