Rape and punishment

If an American citizen is convicted of rape, his punishment is severe, possibly even life in prison. Why, then, should alleged rapist Adrian Arriano be deported (for the third time) if he is convicted?

Love that TV image

Neil Postman, author of "Amusing Ourselves to Death," offers a prophetic voice when he says that television politics offers its viewers a compelling image of themselves in a particular candidate.

Thanks so much for John Boston

I join wholeheartedly with John Boston's prayer, "Dear Lord, save me from the politically correct sub-committee of The Always Victimized."

Hey, Detroit, how about some creativity?

Instead of a total bailout for the Detroit Three, what about making it attractive for prospective car buyers to buy an American-made vehicle?

Great political cartoons

At first, when I viewed the two political cartoons on the opinion page of the Sunday Signal (Nov. 16), I reacted to them with anger.

Go, Team Signal!

I wanted to thank The Signal and Mr. Collier for their recent coverage of the Saugus High School Band and Color Guard.

The health care threat

Lack of creativity, not lack of money, is threatening health care coverage for more than 160,000 children. Like most of the state's health-care safety net, California's Healthy Families program for uninsured children in low-income families is facing the budget ax.

Take time to do the bailout right

Isn't it interesting that regulation and oversight were fighting words for the investment houses, until they stopped making huge profits. Then, when the marketplace started working and their short-sighted risky business practices caught up with their bottom line, they want to be bailed out even before they straighten out their own shops!

Palin in 2012

In the far-right's non-reality-based universe - in which logic was entirely abandoned in lieu of whatever reality the Rovian twisters deemed essential - they are already attacking a popularly elected president-elect before he has spent a minute in the Oval Office.

McCain is not our man

I've followed the presidential campaign from the beginning, riding its roller coaster of events. I've had a hard time putting my finger on exactly what it was that bothered me about John McCain and the prospect of facing four or eight more years with Republicans in the White House.

Blame for McCain

Let me get this straight. John McCain says that the failure of the Wall Street bailout is Barack Obama's fault? Let's backtrack to 1980 and the beginning of the Reagan era.

Squirrel poisoning

I live in the American Beauty Classic housing tract in Canyon Country. Recently I received a letter informing my family and me that our board members - seven homeowners - decided to kill off our squirrel population by poisoning them due to burrowing problems.

Republican policies equal economic woes

Look to history. In 1929, the Great Depression, the 1989 recession, and now in 2008, the country was under the command of the Republican Party, Herbert Hoover, Bush Sr., and Bush Jr.

Doublespeak and fringe rhetoric

The "Drawing Conclusions" cartoon published in The Signal on March 18 is a perfect example of the doublespeak that comes so easily from the fringes of both left and right - and the stupidity of the voters who don't even bother to think about what they're hearing.

Tracking the elusive ‘jump head’

This may be trivial. I enjoy reading The Signal except for one thing - your style on "jump heads."

Sprinklers and corporate citizenship

Saturday at noontime, in the hottest time of day, we passed a large green stretch of land with sprinklers going full blast. I guess they couldn't wait till night.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Our Senior Center needs everyone’s help

At the City Council meeting I asked "What happened" most of the candidates have stated they have been on the Senior Boards for years. Yet it is outdated and underfunded.

Campaign blight

During each City Council election cycle the citizens of Santa Clarita are subjected to a plethora of campaign blight on public property created by candidates who are asking for voters to entrust them to represent their interests in our beautiful community.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER:Vote for Mercado Fortine for City Council

On April 8, citizens of Santa Clarita will have the opportunity to elect GLORIA MERCADO FORTINE to our City Council. I have known Gloria and members of her family for more than 40 years. In my opinion, she is the exact type of person our City needs at this time!

Editor's note: The following letter was directed to Santa Clarita City Council candidates.

Conserving water

I was thinking: Why do we have to cut down on our water usage by 20 percent while the city tears up the center dividers and plants more trees, flowers and bushes?

When Seconds Count

A very heartfelt "thank you" to the 911 operators, firefighters, paramedics, ambulance staff and sheriff's deputies who responded to the call for help at my home the evening of Feb. 26.

Wilk goes against voter wants

I received correspondence from Scott Wilk recently saying why he didn't support SB 27, which requires nonprofit organizations to disclose the names, addresses and employers of donors of $1,000 or more when their funds are used to make contributions or expenditures of more than $50,000 in any one year, or more than $100,000 over four years.
