On May 7, I sent you a letter ("Irresponsible headline," April 20) about your headline "Santa Clarita ranked one of richest cities" (April 12).
So the Republicans want to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency. Great, now we can burn all that "clean coal" and drill, baby, drill. They also want to eliminate the Department of Education so we can all be as dumb as they are.

Junior and Missy's parents are driving them 12 hours away from their hometown to The University of Getting Out of My Parents' House. Sure, there are plenty of local community colleges and state schools they could have attended, but then they would have to come home every night to live with those stupid cash machines who raised them.
