David Hegg: When world views collide

Since the announcement of Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling on Proposition 8, the media has been blanketed with commentary and insightful responses written by better men and women than me.

Roger Gitlin: My money is on Meg Whitman for governor

Who is Meg Whitman? Is she your typical bored billionaire looking to buy her way into office? I don't really know, and quite frankly, I don't really care if she spends millions of her own money to be California's next governor. If nothing else, her money helps the economy, creates lots of employment and plenty of jobs in media and advertising that wouldn't necessarily be there if a pauper like me were running for the state's top office.

The libraries are fine

A recent editorial, "The city should take over the SCV's libraries" (Aug. 1), stated that "Santa Clarita is the biggest city in Los Angeles County not to have its own library system." That comes off like "all the other kids have one." We don't need our own library; we are part of a library system that provides services the city can never hope to match.

Leave the library be

Along with Dianne Bartley in her recent letter to The Signal ("Keep libraries the same," Aug. 8), I would be less concerned over the city's proposal to take over operation of our local libraries were I not concerned about a subsequent loss of service.
