Things I wonder

I read "Soundoff" in the Herald. I am not proud of that admission. But it's like passing a car wreck after crawling in traffic for thirty minutes - you just have to look. And I wonder: Does the caller(s) really think the DOT is going to pave Brooklet-Leefield road any sooner because he (or she) called the paper anonymously? Do they think the synchronization of lights on the by-pass will happen more quickly? Do they think roadgraders purposely watch the weather so they can be sure to go out and scrape "THEIR" road just before it rains so it gets all yucky? Do liberals/conservatives think their regurgitation of some MSNBC/FOX News diatribe for/against whatever will amount to a hill of beans or change any opinion minutely?

Bless those who call in with positive comments about a kindness which has been done for them. Sure would be nice to see more of them.

And Jim and Jason, if you read this, I subscribe to the Herald and the op-eds about local newspapers are getting tiresome. Really would appreciate not seeing them any longer.

You are right about Soundoff, it is almost impossible to not read.

A recent article in Wall Street Journal reviewed the popularity of these call in comments, a feature of many local newspapers throughout the country, and found that this was not only what most people read first but was a significant circulation booster.

I have to admit to being addicted to our Soundoff, the comments are colloquial, heated and often outrageous, practically guaranteed to raise your blood pressure a couple of points and help you wake up in the morning.

It's kind of like watching Jerry Springer...

In case you missed it the first time: Texas, dead church goers, 30 round magazines, failure to report to FBI, and the beat goes on... I thought the time for gun control debate was after more than twenty innocent five and six year old children were killed in Sandy Hook ...

Guns, again
October 05, 2017
I thought the time for gun control debate was after more than twenty innocent five and six year old children were killed in Sandy Hook using a military style assault weapon and a high capacity clip. I was wrong. And after Gabby Giffords was almost killed using a pistol with ...

President Pinocchio
February 13, 2017
The following was sent to both Senators and Congressman Allen. I am extremely concerned about the current President's callous disregard for the separate but equal parts of our government. His crude, insulting comments about judges and members of the Congress who dare to disagree with him, not to mention members ...

Voting Rights for Virginia Felons
April 27, 2016
Well, the governor of Virginia has restored voting rights for felons who have served their sentences and been released. Immediately, and as expected, right wing pundits decry this as a Democratic ploy to get more votes for Hillary. Who are they kidding? Folks, let's face reality. They're felons, certainly not ...

SCOTUS Nominee

An open letter to Sens.Perdue and Isakson, Dear Sirs: I am greatly offended at your refusal to carry out the Constitutional duties each of you were elected to perform. Your stance that the American people need to have a voice in the next nominee is disingenuous. The American people exercised ...
