They have lost what this United States was founded on. Keep it up, Bob.
Take the emotions out of the equation and you have the almighty dollar. That U.S. dollar is being misused violently and that is criminal. We need to become more realistic and make some of these other countries take care of their own. If people choose to be here illegally and not go through the process of legalization, like those who paved the way, then get out. No right. No benefits. No nothing. Do it legally ...
Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar is being vilified and is anything but a racist.

I've heard of all-star casts, but "Valentine's Day" has a complete star cast. What did other movies do for talent when this one was filming? It has 21 actors who can be considered stars, and some are very big stars indeed. It's like the famous poster for "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World," with a traffic jam of famous faces.

One of our first acts when moving to the Santa Clarita Valley was subscribing to The Signal. It has never been a "small town" periodical. Over the years it has presented issues on a high professional level. In today's (Feb. 7) editorial edition, the paper continues to present opinions in the Kellar debate. Then I see features on "Don't ask...," education, the Jan. 21 ruling on campaign spending, First Amendment, etc. Lila Littlejohn, this is ...
