Background checks

Hey everybody, watch out! After what happened in Texas, Obama’s going to have us have a background check before we can buy an Exacto knife anymore.


Don’t trust Sanford

To say that we should leave Mark Sanford’s personal character to God for judgment is ridiculous. Whether considering someone’s political or personal life, his character is all he has to offer and it doesn’t change. If he lied to the people closest and dearest to him, how do you think he will treat us mere citizens? He promised God that he would honor his wife till death, and he broke that promise. You just can’t trust this man, no matter what the arena. He has no business representing the good citizens of South Carolina in Congress. We must demand better and send Mark Sanford back to his mistress in Argentina.


Patient care

Responding to the Medicare TalkBack, most doctors only have seven minutes to spend with their patients, so they’ve got to get through as many as they possibly can. We have to remember that there are a lot of sick people out there, too. Have all your lists written out, the questions you need, and ask the questions that you need to ask. The people who deserve to be served the most are the sick, and we do pay them – I know some don’t, but those people who have insurance pay enough to take care of them, too. So why don’t doctors just take a few minutes and put themselves in the patients’ places?


Naming golf holes

I remember, one year, that you put in the Aiken Standard the names of every holes, and they were either trees, shubbery or lots of blooming bushes. Please put that in there again, so people who have to stay at home can know where each one is.


Theatre talent

The Aiken Community Playhouse has presented another awesome comedy in “Fox on the Fairway.” Great script, excellent direction and a superb, fantastic and incredible cast! It was an extremely enjoyable evening. We are so very fortunate to have such talent in our community.


Murder trial

President Obama infamously said that if he had a son he probably would have looked like Trayvon Martin. Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a black doctor, is on trial for murdering many black babies. Guess those babies wouldn’t have looked like Obama because he has been totally mute on the subject.
