I know I shouldn't be all that surprised, but it always hits me sideways. A college professor whose academic background turns out to be a sham. An incumbent politician whose military record is found to be fiction. Professional athletes caught using illegal drugs to enhance their performance. Journalists discovered to be plagiarizing material and quoting non-existent sources. High-placed executives revealed to have embezzled millions of dollars from their own companies.
Regarding "We need a professional debate" (The Signal, June 2), I have proudly stood in solidarity with Dr. Gene Dorio on issues regarding our "community hospital."
Regarding "Israel's flotilla massacre: made in the USA" (June 10): Thank goodness The Signal adds a disclaimer to the end of columns from contributing writers. Phyllis Bennis' superior intelligence conveniently didn't mention the flotilla knew full well Israel had a blockade in effect, and that Israel does its best to protect its country. But this gave her such a glorious opportunity to be indignant about the U.S. and shoot her mouth off about how bad we are.
I'm fascinated by Bruce McFarland's concept ("Calling for clergy action," June 8) regarding people who are here illegally.
Our liberal, political leaders are misrepresenting Arizona's new immigration laws as "discriminatory."
I just finished reading Tom Pattantyus' column ("Jumping through hoops and over fences," June 4).
I cannot believe it! The April Fool's issue of The Signal is becoming reality. It was a most clever article (in jest, I thought at the time) that told us all the City Council was being voted in "for life" and we wouldn't need anymore elections.
Three cheers for Arizona and shame on California for the idea of boycotting Arizona.
In response to the recent rhetoric regarding "environmental terrorism": OK, I get what City Councilman Frank Ferry ("Ferry: Stop 'developmental terrorism,'" June 1) is trying to say, although I might have used the term "developmental obstructionists," because there are indeed vocal individuals in our valley who attempt to oppose any new development for any reason in Santa Clarita.
Are you appalled by the front-page story ("City OK's $117K 'Old West' re-do for Newhall Library," May 13) regarding the cost of revised architectural drawings for our new library? So was I.
It is an eagerly awaited rite of summer when the cherries begin to ripen in the Leona Valley.
