"It is fine that these few were granted their right, but what about all the others that now DO NOT have the right to the group prayer. Can't the few whom it offends just wait outside until it's over? Also, if God offends them and the ACLU so much, then do not allow them to spend or receive money, because all the coins and bills have "In God We Trust" on them. I bet that would shut those hypocrites up!"
Efforts to balance the state budget prompted comments from another viewer in Salem.

"Maybe our leaders don't know how to handle the money or they are putting it where it doesn't really need to go.
These people sitting in high places need to come and see just how hard the blue collar worker has to work for their money and talk to them and see how hard it is to make ends meet... maybe they need to take some tips from them on how to do the budget."

And following our coverage of legislation that would prohibit gasoline retailers from selling fuel below cost... two viewers checked in.

"Pointing out Sheetz in Christiansburg is really unfair. They don't always have the lowest price in town and when they are low, others are low as well. Kroger , Hess, Crown and Racetrack are all low and the station across the street from Sheetz has always been low as well... Why not point out all of the stations with low prices and not just pick on Sheetz."

Another wrote...

"What about Kroger? They are just as cheap. And up the road there is another place that was selling gas for 89 cents a gallon. Nothing was said about that... I think some people just need to F.I.D.O. Forget It and Drive On."
