“Three stores leave downtown, but the ones who run the State of Maryland are not going to be happy until they spend a billion dollars downtown to bring in Ma and Pa shops. Maybe I can get a job in a back room making candles.”

“Whatever happened to this idea that the Obama administration was supposed to be the most open administration we ever had. There’s getting to be more and more things coming up that he should be responsible for. Of course, he’s not responsible for anything. But this Benghazi thing. They were regular citizens that were murdered. It’s terrible, but it’s one thing for a military person to get killed, but these people weren’t military.

“I want to know how a welfare recipient can be caught driving with no license and license plates that belong on another vehicle and be caught numerous times and always get off with nothing in the court system. Or have four or five cases continued for more than a year and then get caught for a DUI and theft for shoplifting and still let go to continue on all while giving fake addresses or old ones. Can someone please explain this to me.”
“I see by the Hagerstown paper that we’re now on the verge of losing our Suns baseball team to a Virginia city. Thanks to the local people who sat on their ... you-know-whats and could not make a decision. How sad. ... We will never see professional baseball in Hagerstown again. How very sad.”
