The following comments were generated from an editorial by FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, which first aired on Tuesday, March 16, 2010.

Drennen from Empire
I listened to Lou's report on speaking correctly. Tell Lou that in one of her editorials to remind the graduates of Alabama and Auburn to quit saying "dem", "dat" and "does". I think the first thing they should learn to do to make it in this world today is to speak correct English. I am Indian by heritage...and Indians if you will notice, speak correctly English. Think Alabama learn to speak correctly, not "dem", not "dat" and not "does".

Josephine from Fayette
I just listened to your editorial. I am in accord 100%. I just hope the message has gotten over to the public, especially our young people.

Eddie from Margaret
I been outta work for three years. I need to get a job. I been to many interviews and I can't seem to land a job. My resume is in good shape but nobody will give me the time of day. I'm on disability and I need an extra job for the kids and the grandkids. I don't know what's gonna happen in the near future but I need a job.

Pamela from West Birmingham
I do agree with the comments made by Lou in regards to you being very well prepared when you go on interviews and being able to sell yourself...I do believe that if something is for you, you gonna get it.
