Two cents for McFarland

Regarding "Getting rid of developer kissers," (July 6), columnist Bruce McFarland sings the praises of the Democrats and says that they're natural allies of the tea party. Well, I'll skip the obvious jabs at the free-spending Democrats in Sacramento and Washington he helped elect who are bankrupting our country. Many other Signal readers will send that message, I'm sure.

Patricia Skinner Sulpizio: Rest in peace, Sen. Byrd

Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-West Virginia, the longest-serving member of Congress, died June 28 at age 92. Born in poverty in Appalachia, he rose to third in succession to the president.

Steve Lunetta: The cultural tie that binds us together

This summer, we have a female college student living with us. This young lady is the daughter of some very good friends of ours who happen to be African. Going to the University of California, Santa Barbara and having no cash to travel home, it was natural that she would stay with us.

David Hegg: Today’s choices determine tomorrow’s opportunities

While the proverbial advice to "take each day as it comes" has some validity, it also masks the dangerous assumption that the choices we make today won't have consequential carry-over tomorrow. In fact, while it is both harmful and a waste of time to worry about the unknowns of the future, it is always wise to consider what effect my decisions today will have on the options available to me later.
