Your turn to sound off.
Scott, I want to sign your petition to keep Stan Van Gundy. Dwight Howard may want him fired. But I don't think Rich DeVos got rich by letting immature, overpaid employees tell him who to hire and fire. Shirley
Amway. He'd be more prone to listen to Dwight if Dwight got three of his friends to call for Van Gundy's firing. And those three friends each got three of their friends to do the same. And so forth.
Dear Mr. Maxwell, thank you for not sensationalizing the tragic events of Feb 26th. I'm not sure what's worse: The media who put a nasty twist on almost every event or the people who choose to believe either side as the gospel truth. Sheila
Indeed, Sheila. False idols are dangerous in both religion and politics.
Good job Scott. Al Sharpton is a racial arsonist and Sean Hannity is a conservative windbag. I think they care more about ratings than how much damage they are causing. Chris.
Want to know a secret, Chris? Guys like Hannity and Sharpton pay more attention to each other than most thinking folks pay to either one. It's a self-fulfilling prophesy that plays — and pays — well for them. Not so much for meaningful discourse.
Mr. Maxwell, I just read your column and have to say only 40 percent of what you wrote was right. Barbara.
Barbara, you've earned 40 percent of my gratitude.
Maxwell, I guess I can admit your last column was halfway decent. Ed.
Half? Hey, that's a 10-point jump!
Hey Scott, I heard you talking about cameras in the police vehicles. Well, I'm a county employee, and we have cameras in our vehicles … in case of an accident or to show improper driving by the employee. It seems to me that if they have the money to install cameras to protect their liability, they should be able to install some cameras on the police cars to help the officers. Jason.
It would seem, Jason.
Scott, did I hear Randy Johnson wants to run for the State House again? Does he think voters will forget his past? Sam
Come on, Sam. Just because Johnson made headlines for questionable spending — like $4,000 at Bass Pro Shops and claiming local mileage reimbursement for 30,000 miles (enough to circle the globe) — that doesn't mean Floridians won't vote for him to make a legislative comeback. Heck, I know a few people who even touted his sad-sack and unsuccessful campaign for CFO … like the Sentinel's editorial board.
Scott your columns often come close to the real truth of the matter. I wish the truth mattered to someone, and that your columns had some impact; not just something to read like Hagar the Horrible. Bill
How dare you, Bill? Hagar revolutionized medieval Scandinavian fiction.
Scott, most of the time we see eye to eye. But not on the Citrus Bowl. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money. A proper stadium … will make lots of money. Christina
Fair enough, Christina. Then some of those who'll be making all that money should pitch in and help fund it. Not just taxpayers.
Maxwell, every time you start whining about the cost of the Citrus Bowl, you sound like a sports-hater. Jason
Hey, Jason, quit stealing Mike Bianchi's schtick, will ya?
Scott, I can't imagine why the Citrus Bowl backers think we should refurbish that place with only public money when the performing arts center — by far the most popular of the three projects — is still trying to find private money to build its signature hall for the symphony and the ballet. Elizabeth
Scott: My 77th birthday is coming up in two months … Want to play a game of racquetball? Kenneth
Kenneth, the last time I played racquetball, I got trounced. In fact, I think I recall… wait, you're 76? Meet ya at the Y.
