Regarding "Size Matters," The Signal, Nov. 12: I wrote a published Letter to the Editor to the SCV Signal about "Trader Joe's smart move" (The Signal, Sept. 14). The parking at the Bouquet Canyon Plaza was already designed before Trader Joe's moved in. There were many more empty parking spaces before Trader Joe's occupied its recent store, which made it easy to find and negotiate a parking space. Management of the Bouquet Canyon Plaza is ...

Just as the crusades for "affordable housing" ended up producing disasters like public housing and a ruinous real estate market, so many of the same politicians are now carrying on a crusade for "affordable health care." Expect the same results. No message has been more welcomed by the gullible, in countries around the world and throughout history, than the promise of something for nothing.
I am an American, too. Proud and working hard to get America back on its feet. Right now it seems that Uncle Sam is on his knees trying to carry all this debt we have compiled in our great United States. Let's give him (and us) a hand by defeating this terrible health care bill.

If you question New York City's Stop and Frisk policies, you might consider the constitutionality of Santa Clarita's DUI checkpoints. What justification is there for stopping over a thousand cars when there is absolutely no reasonable cause? Just because we have a federal grant, Do we have to spend taxpayer money to cite a single DUI? Some may argue that it takes just one drunk to run over a child, but I'd ask what percentage ...
Our President Barack Obama is asking the Congress' vote. It's legitimate. If we have the proof that Syria killed children and adults with chemical weapons don't we have to intervene? I understand this time France would be our ally if we decide to save lives.
Junior and Missy's parents are driving them 12 hours away from their hometown to The University of Getting Out of My Parents' House.
