Here's some advice for those who live on flood plains: Move!

Another child gets hold of a gun and shoots his sister. If you ask me, this is where the law needs to step in. Parents, ... lock up your guns.

What has happened to human morals? Since when isn't life and all its beauty sacred and to be protected above all else? Now 15-year-old girls can take a pill as if they had a headache.

Here's what radio listeners don't want to hear: The DJ complaining on nice days that he'd much rather be on his motorcycle than what he's doing. There's a lot of nice days ahead — maybe he should get a different job. And kiss your listeners goodbye, because they want someone who is as enthusiastic about the music as what they are.

Over a quarter million dollars from the city to build a sidewalk downtown. The developer of condos requested it. Why doesn't the developer pay?

Why do you nurses and doctors have to show on TV “jabbing” needles into patient's arms? Their “jab” is unnecessary, especially for children to observe.
