The Rant

Saturday, May 4, 2013 - 12:01 am

The Rant is The News-Sentinel's anonymous sound-off forum. The readers' views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The News-Sentinel.

Congressmen and senators continue to receive generous pay and benefits for a job and work they are not getting done. Anyone else with a similar performance would be fired.

A couple days in the 70s (degrees), and the bikes with their pipes are out for all to hear. We have a noise ordinance in this town so, FWPD (Fort Wayne Police Department), please enforce. Clearly the decibel limit is being exceeded by many.

Being in the school zone and with yellow flashing light (for) 25 mph, I still had two drivers get mad, go around me and speed off. So no, our laws are not being enforced!

Instead of finding a way to save the taxpayers money, the city of Fort Wayne will now start charging us separately for hydrant maintenance. So instead of collecting one source of money, they will now collect two sources of money.

Why do people think that the street and other people's lawn is their private garbage dump? Put your garbage where it belongs. Let's take pride in our neighborhoods.

What state INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) idiot scheduled both the closing of Covington Road at the bridge and closing down two lanes on Illinois Road into Scott Road (which is going to be a major detour for the aforementioned closing)? Man, they have all year to do one or the other.

Maybe suicide bombers and terrorists wouldn't be so quick to do it if they knew they would be referred to as a coward in the worldwide media. If the media constantly called them cowards, maybe it wouldn't seem so attractive. Who wants that legacy?

Would somebody please do something about Landin Road as you enter New Haven? My kidneys can't take it anymore.

If Jesus made $200 million a year, he would be taxed, too. And he would be OK with that.

Why does the sequester have to result in a cutback on air traffic controllers when there are plenty of government employees in Washington, D.C., who aren't getting any work done and wouldn't be missed for a minute if they were furloughed?
