Editor's column: How do you pronounce Gettysburg?

Never have truer words been spoken.

You can't even call the police to protect you around here, they are probably the ones robbing and shooting at people. Just read the newspapers, Gettysburg bites wind.

So I came here looking for an article a friend saw and in my search I had to scroll through the first 5 pages of topics. What gives with this forum? I only went back 5 pages, 500 threads, and nearly every one says last by Pink Eye, Davenport, or Colorado Chick. That's a whole lot of time spent saying the same things over and over again back and forth to each other no?

That's a lot of time that you spent worrying about something that you can't change, you stupid, bumbling Gettysburg hick. Violent Crime and Child Rape are what Gettysburg is known for, so get lost ,you worthless hillbilly.

For one thing Pink Eye and Davenport are the same person, absolutely no doubt about that. Colorado Chick has never even sat foot in Gettysburg and is just someone who posts all over Topix nonstop so just ignore her nonsense.

There's a lot of crime down there in Gettysburg. Many Child Rapes too.

It's sad these hick losers even argue those facts. They must feel worthless inside. I would too if I was from Gettysburg. Thank God I'm not!

I pronounce Gettysburg D.O.A.

This rotten little town has been dying for years. The Child Rape Epidemic and the vocal White Supremacists put the final nail in Gettysburg's cheap pine wood coffin.

Good riddance. I hope the entire borough is swallowed up by the earth.

The KKK has applied and received permits to have demonstrations in the GBNMP several times already. In the past a few of them showed up and got just a bit of attention. Once they even made the local paper, and a few times, after getting the approved permit, they didn't even show up.

It is no big deal. The national media may show up and some of the local media from miles away, will have a flash, but there will be no problems and people will hardly know they are here, if they show up.

You are a typical Gettysburg loser who tries to minimize the awful things about his worthless little town.

Gettysburg is a cesspool of Violent Gang Crime, Child Rapists and White Supremacists. What a dump.

The local hicks are mad because I'm right about Gettysburg. A Deputy Sheriff was arrested for STEALING nearly $100,000 worth of merchandise from a local store. Then the guy killed himself.

I hope you moron hicks follow suit. It's a good start. Gettysburg licks toilet seats.

Awww, look, it's another frustrated local loser!

His self-esteem is directly tied to a two-bit town.

People stop in Gettysburg to take a dump on their way to somewhere important.
