* Banning the standard use of cell phones while driving is ridiculous. Cell phone users should file a class action lawsuit challenging the law.
* I ordered a Paula Deen cookbook. I know she has plenty of money. I did it to make a statement about the politically correct stupidity surrounding her situation.
* West Virginia to Beretta: We don't want you.
* Tea Party demonstrations resulted in virtually no arrests or property damage. The "occupy movement" is a very different story. Nearly 8,000 arrests and have cost taxpayers millions of dollars in damages to buildings, cars, and blocking workers' access to their jobs. I guess a higher IQ is needed to toss a Molotov cocktail.
* Thanks to Tasty Blend Foods of Teays Valley for sticking with Paula Deen. We've all made plenty of mistakes and will continue to do so — that's life.
* I purchased a sesquicentennial coin and I am far from rich. I chose to spend $50 on something I thought was a nice keepsake. You choose how you spend your money. Not everything is free.
* City of Charleston: we don't need the graffiti lightened, we need it removed. It would be nice if you'd respond when we catch the thugs in the act, too.
* Learn to drive or stay home.
* Shame on Mayor Callaway of St. Albans for blaming God for his backed up sewers and drains. The fault is his and his street department, not God.
* Joe Haynes said he was not aware of the financial situation at the health department in Putnam County. If he didn't know that, maybe he should resign as a Putnam County commissioner as well.
