Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 17, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — Why would you allow a child of a drunken restaurant patron to continue to thump you on the head without complaining to management?

Got blown away in USAToday contest. Didn’t need the money or pride. Never would have believed that Lowndes County would have gave up. Losing your touch.

A great big Rave to Gary at SGMC Pulmonary Department. Thank you for being so friendly and kind to our mother. She will never forget you. You made her day with your kindness. Keep up the good work.

That chick is either new to “Winnersville” or one crayon short of an eight pack, because that “Seasons Greetings” sign has been at Five Points for at least 20 years. With that being said, if I were to rule the world it would read, “Merry Christmas, Y’all!”

I love the Snoopy on Jerry Jones and the Christmas cards, displayed in Eager subdivision. But, folks, check out a home in Cross Creek, located off of Bemiss. It is amazing! There are over 1,000 lights and the family starts working on it weeks before Halloween. Enjoy!

All intersections on Perimeter have a red light but Howell Road. There are two elementary schools near and traffic is horrible. Our children’s lives must not be a priority. What does it take a busload to be hit by a semi or log truck?

Kudos to the sweet lady at the Inner Perimeter Post Office for helping my mother-in-law with her Christmas cards. You did an amazing job!

I don’t see anything wrong with the legalizing marijuana. While I do not use it nor want to use it, I believe it is safer than cigarettes, alcohol and prescription drugs.

Kids these days have no respect for anyone. It is absurd. They are not taught manners, respect for their elders and have no sense of get-up-and-go. I dislike being around this new crop of kids.

I really pray that the GBI, FBI, Valdosta City Police and VSU find out what happened to Jasmine Benjamin. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

I agree. Valdosta should be renamed, “Trafficlightville,” instead of “Winnersville.”

Congratulations to the Chamber of Commerce on a great parade and festival in Lake Park on Saturday. It was awesome! Thank you for all your hard work!

The pathetic drum-machine versions over classics is an insult to the original artist and the song itself.
