Metro Sound Off - Letters To The Editor

Someone from Michigan keeps making crank phone calls to our house. They keep calling, playing loud banjo music and then hang up. Now my husband is having flashbacks of whitewater river rafting. Can you help?
-Not Pickin and Grinnin in LA
ED NOTE: Hi LA Picker and LA Grinner. I have been getting similar crank phone calls, and the only thing I have found consistent during every call is that Karen McCarty is never at home. 

Drugs for the pain. The good kind too, not the over the counter stuff. Vicodin, Percoset, etc. Glad to hear you made it through okay. If it weren't for you, I'd come in last place at Gull Lake!!!! Get well soon.
ED NOTE: Last place doesn't seem so bad when your flying higher than anyone else on the golf course.

Why Not Sound Off To The Metro


When did the Doc say you can start eating massive amounts of wings again? We should celebrate. I hope you feel better and feel free to give Margaret a call if you need the drain bag emptied. Otherwise, let me know if there is anything I can do.
ED NOTE: Thanks for the offer Steve-O, but ever since the surgery, the stuff in the drain bag looks a lot like really saucy buffalo wings, and the excretion from the wound looked like the blue cheese. It may be a while before I hop back up in the saddle.

I just downloaded "Bad Reputation". Is it true Peanut helped write these lyrics ... because they are so blue?
-Nota Prude
ED NOTE: Peanut did write the lyrics, but I don't think the words are very sad. Why are you so blue? Turn that frown upside-down, Nota.

I was looking at the festive holiday pictures on the December Metro but was troubled when I zoomed in on the poker game picture.  At first I thought Steve was wearing a watch ... but now I'm not so sure.  How much did Steve win in this "friendly" poker game?
ED NOTE: If I'm not mistaken Larz, he and Erin McCarty, (who just happened to get in the game after Kelly was booted out on an alleged "cheating" incident provoked by Steve), were the big winners of the night. Erin was wearing a similar item on her wrist. Metro Investigational Reporters were dispatched to the case after your observation and reported that they found no problems. After blowing up the photo even more, we found that Steve supplied the standard "Marshall Brodene X-Ray Deck" of cards, and the X-Ray glasses were worn by Kevin mostly.

I heard Al Gore actually won the Iraq Election, but George Bush again stole the election from Al and gave it to a true Iraqi. Any truth to the facts?
-Iva Nolife
ED NOTE: I'm not sure, but in Baghdad, I heard there were a lot of hanging Chads (along with beheaded Bills, and car-bombed Johns) that election officials still haven't counted.

Thanks for sharing the McCarty Metro with us. We really enjoyed it - great job! Loved the final thought.
ED NOTE: Thank you Bev and Moe for sending in your comments, baby name suggestions, trivia and quiz answers. You did a lot more than most McCartys.
