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...

PSC seat in Republican Primary

For those of you who have not voted early and will be voting Republican tomorrow, I have one entreaty. For the Public Service Commission seat do not vote for the incumbent, "Bubba" McDonald. McDonald has admitted reports in the Atlanta Constitution that he comes to work less than 1/2 the ...

Government by intimidation?
May 18, 2014
Letter to the editor which may or not see the light of day in print. I never fail to marvel at George Will's ability to wield language in such a fashion as to denigrate liberals (anyone to the left of Rick Santorum) and trash those he purports to support (law ...

Linguistically speaking
March 30, 2014
A recent commercial on TV for some sort of massaging goggles supposed to be a health benefit were touted as aiding the purchaser to "rest and de-stress". I guess "rest" wasn't hip enough. Pretty soon Boy Scouts will be de-bunking at camp at reveille.

Quality Candidates
March 20, 2014
Just an observation that in these days of candidates trying to out conservative or out progressive one another and talking about anything other than how to actually solve some of our country's problems, Bulloch County is truly blessed to have two such well-qualified candidates vying for Clerk of Superior Court. ...

Ambassador Appointments
February 17, 2014
Much is being made of recent nominations for ambassador positions. Nominees not having ever visited the country to which they are being nominated. Not being fully versed in the current political situation of the country. Being rewarded for fund raising for the sitting president. Big whoop! Ambassador positions have always ...
