KEEPING CONTROL IN RIDLEY
I agree with “It Could Be Worse Than Ridley.” Things are getting serious with school taxes around here, but people should look at some situations around us in New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland – at least here we still have decent schools and immediate local control over the districts. You could be paying high taxes for a mediocre district that covers half of the county and have little say over your kids’ education.
To “Wheels Of Fortune,” the flip side to that is that they actually issue recalls when things are wrong with cars these days. Remember when Ralph Nader was pulling teeth to get the auto industry to admit there could be anything unsafe about their vehicles?
Any other year if we have a Friday the 13th in October, I’d be a little bit more superstitious and cautious. However, since things already seem to be falling apart all around America right now, I’m not too worried. It’s like we’ve been having more and more frequent days of bad luck for the last 20 years, so if anything happens to me today it should blend right in. JUST SAYING
To “Brookhaven Rocks,” are you kidding me? I’ve lived on Trouble Boulevard for years and speeding and going through stop signs is a major problem. It’s worse than ever, and hardly ever see a cop around here. You live in Aston and have blinders on – and what is your concern about Trimble anyway as compared to other ways to go passing through? Try Brookhaven Road or Dutton Mill Road. Trimble residents went before council several times and the speed bumps and speed monitor haven’t worked. Sorry, neighbor, but I couldn’t believe what I was reading from your input. MRS. G
OH BOY, ODELL
My heartfelt sympathies go out to Odell Beckham Jr. I bet he’s wishing he could lift that left leg like he could in the Eagles’ end zone like he did a couple weeks ago – what goes around comes around. It looks like these current cornerbacks and safeties are learning what we all knew back in the ‘60s. These big 225-pound fullbacks and halfbacks come through the line, the only way for us 170 pounds safeties to get them down was to throw yourself at the back of their legs and maybe, just maybe, they won’t be so fast to get up. You know that, Odell? You’ve got to protect yourself in the clinches, buddy.
“Why They Hate Us” is the most ridiculous article I’ve ever read in Sound Off. “Wise Man” is anything but a “Wise Man.” R.G. IN D.H.
SHOOTING DOWN LOGIC
“Old And Knew” might take the cake for ridiculous leftist anti-gun calls. First of all, cannons are artillery and the Second Amendment is taking about arms, not artillery guns. That’s as ridiculous an anti-gun argument as a pro-gun person saying private citizens have right to nuclear weapons.
WHO’S THE MORON?
So Donald Trump wants to compare his IQ to the man who called him a moron. Donald, you couldn’t spell IQ if you were spotted the ‘I’! BILL FROM BROOMALL
HIDE AND SEEK
I agree with “What Language!” about listening to those old Oval Office tapes. Trump is an openly more rough around the edges guy than any of those presidents, but there is no question that any politicians around before 24-hour cable news and then the Internet greatly benefited when it came to personal character issues.
TIME FOR THE 25th AMENDMENT
Trump’s bashing on Twitter of Sen. Bob Corker, a Republican no less, proves that not only is Trump not qualified for office, but that is he is mentally unstable. And of course Trump supporters are going to back him in all this, proving that they too are mentally unstable.
What is in the water in Radnor? Have all the politicians up there lost their minds? The Spingler case even made the British tabloids. I’m ashamed to live on the Main Line.
