The Rant

Since FWACA (Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority) is spending millions of dollars at the airport, could the powers that be please get some signage on Airport Expressway? The sign on Indiana 3 for Smith Field is bigger than the one for FWA. A little picture of an airplane is not enough when it is dark out. And you wonder why locals and flyers from out of Fort Wayne proper will not use the airport.

No need to Google sweet corn. Soak in water for 2 hours. Cut off silk and put on hot grill. Turn three times (every five minutes). Done. Perfect every time. Do not ever open the husk until it's time to eat it. No fancy bacon, chili peppers or other stuff. Just great sweet corn taste. Been growing and enjoying it for 30 years.

To all you folks complaining to the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) about the Miley Cyrus show on NBC, is your remote broken or is it you can't figure out how to use it? Or maybe your didn't watch it all, and you just want to control what others may watch.

No manners and consideration. I like the smell of barbecue ribs and chicken, but only in a restaurant or at home. Not inside a Citilink bus where people eat out of a box and break the rules of not eating inside a bus.

President Obama said Iraq was a dumb war. What's so smart in bombing a truck and artillery piece? Great accomplishment. You can bring the air power home now, little Prez.

Please do not ride your bicycle on Amstutz Road north of Leo-Cedarville! Amstutz Road is very narrow, has no berm, is full of blind hills, and is treacherous! Cars, even though driving the speed limit, cannot see you until they come right up on you. If a car is coming from the other direction, someone has to go off the road! Very dangerous!

The people of this country are getting dumber by the day. I bought a cell phone ... for $30. It wouldn't work a week later. When I returned it for a refund, they said it would cost $35 to return it. How stupid is that?

If George W. Bush would not have let his ego get in the way, we would not be back in Iraq bombing ISIS. Saddam Hussein would have it all under control. But no-o-o-o-o. He had to start something that will haunt us for the next 100 years. Thanks George, thanks for nothing.

Throughout all of earth's history, the bad guys always cover up their faces while doing their crimes, like Hamas does today.

If you live on the east side of Woodmont and your dog barks for five straight hours while you are gone, when you get home your dog will be at Animal Care and Control. How can you treat your animal that way? He or she is supposed to be part of your family, not just a plaything that you have for your kids. Mosquitoes bite dogs, too. Shame on you.

Why are we supporting Israel when 90 percent of their population wants to see the Palestinians wiped off the map. The Palestinians want the Israelis wiped off the map. What's the difference? Why not support all of the civilians in both areas?

All the dump trucks in the area ... (should) have tarps/covers to cover their stone loads . Yet they say (in small letters on their trucks) that they are not responsible for damage. It's stuff off your truck, so who is responsible? And it doesn't always work to stay back the "magical" 300 feet like the sign says.

Congressman (Marlin) Stutzman needs either a bigger mouth or a smaller foot. It has to hurt him every time he speaks. He's worried about immigrants having Ebola. Does he not realize that almost a quarter-million people a day enter our airports on flights that originated outside the country. Should we quarantine all of them for 21 days because they went on vacation or are here on business? Who voted for him?
