In response to "An unholy alliance at city hall" (July 27): Thank you, Bruce McFarland. Your good citizenship is helping us all by giving a view of what you see. Thank you for taking the time to attend these meetings and keeping the rest of us informed of your observations. It will be in interesting to see the other side.
Has anybody read the hatred and other dubious ideas depicted in JournoList? It's pretty outrageous. The slavish behavior these journalists have shown is amazing.
I strongly oppose the proposal for the city to take over the three county libraries in Santa Clarita. What's the point? There is no way a new city library can provide the vast array of books, magazines, professional journals, CDs, DVDs, microfilm, etc. now available to Santa Clarita residents through the Los Angeles County library system, let alone do so at a cost savings.
