On the path unwinding in the circle of life, it's Monday Mail.
Here's a comment "Anna" posted to last week's Monday Mail, in which critics ridiculed Columbus because of an overhyped Little League tussle parents got into here:
Doesn't anyone ever send you an e-mail with something good to say about Columbus? I, for one, wish you would not continue to print these e-mails from our city's detractors, particularly those who no longer live in Columbus and do not know firsthand what's happening in our town. We aren't perfect, but I don't think we deserve the constant yammering from disaffected ex-residents.
I don't get emails with good things to say about Columbus, but hearing only from people who complain is typical.
The Little League brawl was no big deal, so it's no big deal if people try to make fun of us for it.
Back to school
Here's a posting from ItsBummerStoopid:
Timmy, I think the mountains are calling you. Run, Timmy, run!
That's so cute! What grade are you in this year?
Here's a posting from "baffled" to a Monday Mail column in which a correspondent said reporters didn't think Bobby Peters could win the 1994 mayor's race without a runoff, but afterward they understood his appeal when they saw all his campaign signs in south Columbus:
Tim, that is funny, I know every yard on Reese Road including ours had a Bobby Peters for Mayor sign. I think he had six or seven people running so winning without a run off was pretty good. As my husband said, signs, not size does matter.
I figured Peters would win outright because the people voting against him had too many choices.
Here's an email apparently in regard to the roundabout under construction on 18th Avenue:
Have you ever driven through a roundabout? Hate 'em. City planners just love them.... KPS and Boulevard suggested roundabouts for 13th and Broad streets in Phenix City. But I have to tell you, I drive the one on St. Simons Island regularly, and I nearly crash every time. Give me intersections!
If you nearly crash even when there's no other traffic, then try to remember to drive AROUND the roundabout, and not straight through it.
