RADIO COURTESY

Praise to the ... fellow who turned down his boombox Saturday in traffic. He was alongside me and I asked him to please turn his radio down a bit. He said, sure, and I thanked him. ... Now that's what I call courteous. Thank you, whoever you were.WORK TOGETHER

The fiscal crisis must not be solved by cutting already modest Social Security and Medicare benefits. We can lower health care costs by eliminating the greedy health insurance industry and adopt a single-payer system of Medicare for all. Allow the Medicare-for- all system to negotiate with the drug companies for the best price.MUTE IT OR TICKET

For a city in need of revenue, I wonder why [the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office] doesn't issue citations for loud radios or these beefed-up exhaust systems that are as loud as military jets overhead. It also seems a lot of drivers ignore the window-tint laws. Enforcement here is a joke.THERE FOR A REASON

Turn signals have been mandatory equipment on automobiles for 60 years, since 1952. How much longer do we have to wait for people to learn how to use them?FLAWLESS ILLOGIC

Everyone knows that you can't put anything on the Internet that isn't true. And I know that's true, because I saw it on television, and you can't put anything on television that isn't true.TIRED OF THE BULL

Obama told Republicans to sit in back of the bus and that we had our chance. Obama wanted nothing to do with Republicans his first four years. And, if Romney had won, Harry Reid promised not to work with him. So as far as I'm concerned, Obama can fix this economy his way. Republicans are always expected to give in, compromise, work together.
