All debt

There is no debt to income ratio. None. It’s all debt and no income.

Tears

My wallet is like an onion, opening it makes me cry.

Little vs. big

Mississippi has very little. Texas has quite a lot.

Quit it

Please stop littering by Edgewater Mall. This is a nice area and people do not want it to look like a ghetto. If you don’t care about trash, move to a landfill.

Perfect song

The current situation at the White House reminds me of an old ’80s song by Queen: “Another One Bites the Dust.”

Slow down

Imagine how many fewer deaths and serious injuries would occur in the U.S. each year if everyone drove within the legal speed limits.

Scared to vote?

The vocal opponents of our state flag do not want another popularity referendum on the issue because they know what the outcome would be. The silent majority will speak.

Spray please!

Help! Please help us here in Pascagoula. Walked the dog today and got “bitten” at least 10 times. We need spraying twice a day all over town. Just read of a Mississippi death and seven West Nile cases today. Using mosquito spray, caladryl, anti itch etc., etc. Again help!

Questionable

The headline, “Questionable value” was provided by the Sun Herald. I wasn’t questioning the value of body cameras because their value is great. However, the fact remains, a deputy filling out paperwork would not have had his body camera turned on, and the assailant would not have been identified by it. Body cameras do not save lives, but they illuminate responsibility.

Alternate route

Someone said they had to do 80 on the interstate to pass big trucks? Are you serious? Most all trucks now are governed between 65 and 70 and they take forever to pass each other. If you had to do 80 on the interstate, you are lucky. Try driving between Ocean Springs to the state line where it is stop and go for miles at 30 mph. If you are worried about going too fast, by all means take U.S. 90, that is more for you leisure drivers.

Good read

If the Mississippi Tourism Association would send a copy of Tuesday’s article about Arthur Davis and his Old Country Store Restaurant in Lorman to every major newspaper in the United States, Mississippi’s image would be instantly transformed. The number of visitors that would flock to our fine state would probably be more than we could handle. Excellent article!
