Who is responsible for copy editing at The Signal? I wonder this almost daily, most often when the copy is local, but sometimes even with copy from the wire services. Examples are voluminous, but a case in point: Did anyone there notice that "Doonesbury" was there in name only (no strip) in the Sept. 18 edition?
We people of faith can and do hold different opinions on issues. In regard to Proposition 8, I am puzzled that those who have known/experienced religious discrimination would choose to discriminate against gays and lesbians whose sexuality is NOT a choice.
I suggest to David Kirscher ('Flipping the bird' is protected expression, Letters, Nov. 11) that even though "flipping off" a group of political demonstrators may be protected as a form of "political speech," how about practicing common decency? Just because it is legal doesn't make it right.

I would like to start by offering my sincerest condolences to the family of TSA Officer Gerardo Hernandez, and in no way do I want my words to diminish their loss.
Bob Comer writes in The Signal that he will vote for Democrat Lee Rogers if Rogers will pledge to live under the Obamacare exchanges like the rest of us, since Republican Buck McKeon is not doing that and even though Comer himself is a staunch Republican ("Abiding by the laws they make," Nov. 6).
I began my collegiate career at College of the Canyons in the early 1980s and, even back then, Canyons was an excellent community college - and that was before Dianne Van Hook began calling the shots there.
In response to Cheryl Lagrasta's article, I would like to explain how difficult it is to learn a second language - but it can be done.
