Arlington Avenue in Charleston is probably the shortest street in America -- just two blocks long. It was a wonderful place for young children when I went to Taft School in Mrs. Newhouse's and Mrs. Thompson's classes. We would roller-skate and ride bikes in the trafficless street. I am so grieved for the children who lost their lives in such a child-friendly spot on this Earth.
Ask not what I can do for my country, ask what my country can do for me. Seems like the Obama administration today, opposite of what Kennedy said 50 years ago.
Hey, what's the deal with all these law enforcement officers texting while driving? I was coming down MacCorkle and I saw two deputy sheriffs texting while they were driving. If the general public shouldn't do it, neither should the law enforcement officers.
The news needs to get on something besides this house fire and that shooting of Trayvon whatever his name is. Same old thing over and over and over. Get off the track. Get on something else.
The House of Representatives has sent 30 bipartisan bills to the Senate, to no avail. Those policies, if voted on, could help West Virginia. Sen. Rockefeller, why are you not showing an interest in getting those voted up or down?
I'm a landlord, and I rented through HUD for 10 years. There had to be a smoke detector in every room, a carbon monoxide detector. I find it hard to believe that HUD approved this house.
The rich oil companies keep getting their subsidies year after year, and the fledgling wind farms are going to lose theirs. Ask us who's in power.
Is there any ordinance or law for recalling a Charleston city councilman? He only works for business, not the residents, and they made a mistake and voted him in office.
I saw in the paper where Cheney just had a heart transplant; now if George W. Bush could just get a brain transplant.
America has never been a Christian nation, yet a nation greatly blessed by its transforming influence. It's easy to see what is happening as we lose it.
