    Food rules
    I don’t know who came up with the ignorant rule that you can’t share food at school and throw away good food when someone else is hungry. That makes no sense. When I went to school we could share all the time, like if we didn’t like something maybe someone else did. Whoever makes these rules needs to be put out and somebody put in there that has a brain.

    Old men staring
    I was reading the Hotline comment about “looked over.” I’m so sick of these people calling in about old men looking at them. They are probably just staring at the wall. They have to go some place to eat and when old men quit looking at you and staring or even glancing at you, something has to be wrong with you. As far as waitresses, they don’t want to do those old men’s laundry. And, anybody that doesn’t like the old men where they go out to eat should stay at home.

    Rate rant
    Well, well, Appalachian Power got its rate increase. Wonder why? They give large contributions to our governor for his re-election. He had a chance to sign a bill a couple of months ago that would have helped us with our APCo bills. I don’t understand. I think everybody ought to think about the next election and kick his hind end out of there. And, along with it, get the representative, too. You know who I am talking about. Maybe we need Rick Boucher back really bad.
