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.

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.
