Our city is full of haters. Taxpaying haters and haters that want to to take all the money they can while they can because they did not ask to be born, so they are entitled to all your money for nothing. If you do not like it, then do not read it. You are another example of wanting it your way and most of us are tired of it!

In order to say/do something constructive, you have to get rid of the trash/garbage first.

Stop with 'hater' word already, will ya? It's way over-used as political speak for 'you don't agree with what I believe, thus you are morally corrupt and probably drown puppies for fun.' Let's reserve that term for things like, say, ethnic cleansing or concentration camps. Let's not use it to describe the 'unhappiness' or 'discontent' of people who may comment here.

"...the 'unhappiness' or 'discontent' of people who may comment here" due to inept, corrupt and incompetent highly paid leadership in entities such as the DCSS and the Pulpits, which are destroying our wonderful city, stuff like that?

Yes, Sister, that stuff would be the source of my discontent along with certain non-profits that operate for the benefit of their highly-compensated management - on a tax-exempt basis and accountable to no one but the IRS.

I wish Mr. Murfree would stop posting squawks like this one and concentrate on his job, while he still has it.

If a "visitor" stayed here long enough, it wouldn't take them long to see it.

Thats actually a good point. You guys need to tone it down some. Stop being so ridiculous and outrageous all the time.

Better than eating that dog poop you eat all the time. Do everyone a favor and go back into hibernation for another 3 months, and then come back when you can't stay as long.

Bubba, all it would really take is for the Visitor to come for the weekend and watch the local news and they would have a perfect idea of the city....as long as they watch Fox31 and NOT Walb.

If a visitor read the squawkbox and stayed a couple of days, they would realize the squawkers were telling it like it is. They might even submit a squawk of their own downing this city.

I don't know that casual visitors coming here would buy the paper since it seems the locals don't either. Since the paper picks what prints, is the squawk directed to those who submit--or those who pick from the submissions? People seem to be "haters" because issues never seem to get corrected by political, business, religious, and social "cheerleaders" who advocate "everything is beautiful" in the Good Life while pressing the "Easy Button" as a solution to problems. All others are "haters".

Now that we have an Olive Garden, and after the election, all we will have left to Squawk about will be Dr, Murfree and the School Board. Yes, we may as well shut it down.

If you want to start making improvements to Albany, it should start with changing the racist culture found at ASU. Get rid of the label as a Historically Black College. This in itself is contributing to the racist culture in this school and city.

For the ASU supporters, don't use the excuse that this reference is part of the history of the school. The same could be said for what used to be white only restrooms, white only drinking fountains, etc. These were wrong then just are they are wrong now. Change is needed to reflect a non-racist value system.

is a person who points out that over 90% of the crime is committed by blacks,a racist,a hater or a realist?

As of the census of 2010, there were 77,434 people residing in Albany, Ga. The racial makeup of the city was 71.6% African American and Black, so it's not a stretch to believe that the majority of the crime was committed by the race who is part of the majority of the population.
