Re: “‘Lines & Strikes’ raises funds for and awareness of majestic and endangered Right Whales

It won't help. Fukushima has killed the Pacific Ocean, where many whales still travel, and absolutely nothing is being done as the meltdown continues and tons upon tons of radioactive water and waste are pumped into the sea daily. This poison and death is slowly spreading to all other oceans and no one--no one-- has ever done a thing to stop it.

Re: “Letter: Questions about the horse-drawn carriage industry

"Strolling happily in the evening, broken only by the" frequent gunshots, sound of a mugger running quickly up behind you, crash of a broken car window as a thief sees a grocery bag inside, rattling of a locked door as a burglar tries to jimmy the lock, cries of a beaten, wounded victim sprawled on the sidewalk--and oh ,yes, the clickety click of a shopping cart being wheeled away from Kroger's. Forget the muggers, the shooters, the thieves, the strongarm boys--stop that old lady with the cart!

Re: “Incivility and ‘Combat Parking’ Syndrome

How about that time-honored Savannah driving practice of stopping in the middle of a lane of traffic to let someone out, then spending a few minutes in a
farewell conversation. Don't worry about pulling to the side of the road, those people in the 15 cars you're blocking won't mind. I've never seen this phenomenon anywhere else but here.

Re: “Letters to the editor: Shopping Cart Edition

They get their speedos in a tangle if a shopping cart is out of place while muggers, rapists, carjackets, shooters and burglars dance happily up and down the streets--yet they do nothing about that.

Re: “5 Questions with Jomo Kenyatta Johnson

Agreed. And it is based on a lying premise. Trayvon wasn't killed as a result
of "police brutality," (though many people are, I'll say.) He was killed--after a physical scuffle-- by a dude who lived in the apartment complex he was visiting and questioned what he was doing there.

Why should anyone care what's happening in the 'hood? People in the 'hood don't care what goes on in the CBD or the suburbs.

And why should somebody in Church A give a hoot in hell what goes on inside Church B? Ridiculous.

Re: “1964 The Tribute: The Fabulous Faux Four return to Savannah

I'd like to see this band, bet they're good. Best Beatles-channelling act I've seen
so far is the Monalisa Twins, two young girls out of Austria who have become the house band at the Cavern Club in Liverpool. They have bass and drums backing them, Lisa plays lead and Mona plays rhythm.

Re: “Georgia, S.C. now have firearm permit reciprocity

To--hog: there's no longer a draft, friend. Anyone wanting to fight for USisrael
has to willingly join and presumably they know what they are getting into: illegal wars waged 8500 miles from home on innocent people, most of whom do not have the capability of striking back. Easy, huh? The swamp creatures running this country certainly think so.

There is a measure of truth in the rest of what you wrote, though low-income people are there to be exploited, not protected.

I agree that gun prices have gone up, but you can still pick up a bargain here or there. Try some of the web sites. Now and then you can find a very decent firearm for well under $200, the new threshold price, it seems. I remember in the Seventies buying an M-1 Carbine .30 caliber with a 30-round magazine for $35. I looked on Armslist the other day and now the exact same rifle is $700, the magazine sold separately.
