Cameron Smyth is only kind to a few

I think it's great that Cameron Smyth has been named the Humane Society's "California Legislator of the Year" ("Assemblyman Cameron Smyth recognized," Nov. 1) for introducing legislation that would have given people tax breaks for adopting and spaying poor animals, but how about the poor kids without health care, the massive cuts to our schools and the elderly and disabled who are having to endure big cuts to their SSI and now have no dental or eye care?

Ban the death penalty

Without a doubt, the death penalty is not a new discussion. Community activists, politicians, religious leaders, philosophers and the medical community debate, discuss and question the practice throughout our history.

Palin Giuliani 2012?

If anything is funnier than the fringe right's obsession with Sarah Palin, it's Rudolph Giuliani who may be riding to the "rescue" as a candidate for governor in New York. Subscribing to the McCain, Sanford, Ensign, Gingrich, Limbaugh (and OK, John Edwards) school of "kick your wife when she is down," he may be the most ethically/morally repulsive person in or near public office.

Stick with English

Regarding "City defends English forms," Nov. 1: Santa Clarita has grown tremendously in the last few years. I am glad to see that the city is taking an active stance to beautify downtown Newhall. However, I believe the city should continue to only offer its grant forms in English. I understand that many of Newhall residents speak Spanish, but the language spoken in this country is English.

Until death to us part

There are death penalty arguments aplenty. The common ones are: Does it deter crime, is it moral, equitable, more costly than life imprisonment - is it "cruel and unusual punishment?" People don't usually consider what happens after an execution. These and other death penalty issues will be addressed in an upcoming symposium. The death penalty's greatest issue is finality. Executions cannot be undone.

What's the best approach to reform?

A camel is a horse designed by a committee. Imagine 450 politically appointed individuals trying to revise or re-write California's state constitution and the result will be more bizarre than Frankenstein's creation. It will contain provisions to accommodate the numerous special interests who will twist and turn this document into a larger quagmire than what we have today.
