hCheers: To manager Brad Goss and his employees at the Wal-Mart store in Weatherford for the luncheon for veterans on Veterans Day. Cheers also for the stop signs in the pedestrian crosswalk.

— Preston C. Snoga,


iJeers: To the Texas Rangers for trading a team leader with class in baseball socks for a guy with dreadlocks in baggy pants. It makes me sick. I’m thinking of sending my blue Ian Kinsler jersey to Rangers general manager Jon Daniels with a bill for $85.

— Jerry Schmidt, Cleburne

iJeers: To the Defense Finance and Accounting Service for requiring a 15-to-30 digit password with at least two capital letters, two lower-case letters, two numbers and two special characters. To enroll you have to submit answers to eight security questions selected from a list. All this to receive monthly and end-of-year pay statements.

— Raymond J. Wimberg, Fort Worth
