I got the surprise of my life when people were complaining about a DR editorial. You mean the BYH column is not the...

Jan. 18 Bless Your Heart

I've always tried to shop locally, it's just the right thing to do. But when I see the gas prices here versus what it is in neighboring Wayne and Wilson Counties, it's worth a fill-up when we pass through these areas. They can give their Econ 101 excuses for the difference, but we all know it's pure greed. 

The person complaining about Boyd Street not being completed in a timely manner in Winterville should go to the NCDOT website for information. They would learn that Boyd Street is a state street, which means Winterville officials have no control over it.

If Trump wants this wall built so bad — he’s supposed to be a billionaire — let him build it. He’s rich, so let him pay for what he wants and stop acting like a big baby. The same ones who voted for him —  if they could do it again I guarantee they wouldn’t do it.

BYH to those who keep the Russia probe going. It is time to stop wasting money and time on this. Nothing has been found. If you have not found anything by now, you will not find anything. Move on to working on other things. It is time to leave President Trump alone, so he can do his job without distractions such as this.

BYH to Greenville drivers. For the love of all that is good and right in the world, is there someone monitoring Greenville traffic? Is it possible to synchronize a single stretch of stop lights in this town? Is it necessary to stop at every. single. stoplight. in. this. town?

BYH to the State Theater. I checked your calendar and you have virtually every genre of music scheduled to perform there except rock and metal. Why is this?

BYH to the NCDOT. The asphalt at the Fire Tower Road and Portertown Road intersection is already deteriorating. Let's see how long it takes for the repair work to commence. ECU will probably try to find a way to take the funds for silly spending.

Bless his heart, several people have asked, why didn't Trump get his wall when his party controlled both houses of Congress? Don't Republicans want the wall? Was he afraid to push them?

BYH to our people in the U.S. Congress. I think I read in The DR last week where Congress gave Israel $3.5 billion for the military over the next 10 years. Also they’re helping Jordan secure their border from Syria and Iraq. It’s good to protect theirs, but not ours.

BYH to the Congress. Let’s cut off their paychecks and see how quickly this is resolved.

No bless your heart to people traveling on Frog Level Road who don’t think “closed” means “closed.” The road is closed. That’s why we have so many wrecks around Greenville. You’re not paying attention to the signs.

BYH, why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?
