    Coble needs to stay in DC and work on getting the economy going rather than honoring the Grasshoppers. As a registered Republican, I’m very disapointed in Coble.

    How dare you say that! Howard Coble is a war veteran and so are many of the rest of us! We’ll meet you downtown tomorrow beside the dog statue! Those are fighting words bud and this means it’s war all over again!
