Tonawanda News — I’d like to give my prediction for 2013: After the Buffalo Bills have another terrible season they’ll raise ticket prices again. Then, you’ll get all these crazy die-hard fans running to give them their money. The more they kick you, the more they love it. I can’t believe people flock to watch the Buffalo Bills lose each week. You’d think people would have better things to do with their money than give it to a millionaire football owner who doesn’t do anything to get a winning team.

I went downtown, walked from Wheeler and Fletcher to go to the local establishment next to the Tonawanda Tower. I had a cup of soup and a glass of wine. I forgot my glasses and left to go buy a pair at the Dollar Store and the manager called the police. I told the barmaid I would be back in a few seconds. I probably would have stayed longer. But I just don’t understand why I have to pay $14 for a glass of wine and a cup of soup. This is Tonawanda. I walked there. This is just ridiculous.

Bush and Cheney are responsible for ethanol gasoline? Check your facts, it was tree-hugger Al Gore. Blame him for ethanol gas ruining our vehicles.

That smoking ban in Tonawanda, you know where you can shove it. We pay taxes too and smoke goes straight up in the air. Stop with all this political correctness.
