You Said It, Nov. 29, 2009

To the wonderful individuals who found my purse full of very important belongings in the Wal-Mart parking lot and turned it in to customer service: a very large thank you. People like you make this a lovely place to live. You are honest, respectful and good citizens, and I wish you a very happy holiday season.

Thanks to the staff and volunteers at the Golden Corral for taking care of us veterans. You did a great job.

A few days ago, I was in my vehicle waiting for my wife to finish her massage. A medical marijuana shop happened to be nearby and in the half-hour I waited, eight customers went into the shop. Most were in their early- to mid-20s, and only one appeared to have a visible condition that would qualify for medical marijuana. I just wonder how many of those that qualify actually had their family physician prescribe medical marijuana as a means to alleviate pain or whatever. Probably none, and most likely they got some quack doctor qualify them for a fee. I think the opening of these shops is just a scam to get to use marijuana.

Fruita is imposing all sorts of restrictions on where medicinal marijuana shops can set up shop, but they allow JD’s bar to share a building with a Head Start school. What’s up with that?

People should learn how to tip when they go out to eat. Your server pays bills with tips. We don’t get a paycheck; we get taxed on our sales, so if you don’t tip us right we still have to pay taxes. It’s also the holidays. Come on people and have a heart.

Can anyone explain to me how a holiday food drive has anything to do with Honors 10 English at GJHS? Call me Scrooge, but shouldn’t these students be spending their time studying Honors English?

I would like to apologize to the motor home I cut off at Broadway and the parkway Saturday about 9:30 or 10 a.m. I was trying to get a plate number on a car that just egged my car and caused me $250 in repairs. To the people who did this: You are such chickens and lowlifes. If what goes around comes around, you will be paid back. If anyone knows the name of the driver doing this, I would gladly pay $1,000 for the info.

I wonder if Mrs. Obama is going to abide by the new guidelines presented to American women for mammograms and Pap tests, and Mrs. Biden, and all the members of Congress (or the wives of members of congress). Methinks not. Statistics are only true if it happens to the other guy. If it happens to me — it’s 100 percent.

Please tell me again why three families here have to do potlucks to raise funds for medical procedures to save loved ones and face choosing economic suicide or a death? So much for the greatest health care on Earth.

To the kind woman who stopped on a snowy Saturday night and helped my son and me get my dog out of the street and then to the Emergency Vet Clinic — thank you. Your kindness and compassion were wonderful. To the Emergency Vet Clinic — thank you very much for the care you showed not only to my dog, but also to my son and me.
