I have one question for John McCain: If Sarah Palin is "absolutely ready," as you claim, to be vice president or president right now, then why has she been hiding from American voters?
I read yet another article in The Signal about the "Benz neighborhood" and how the traffic problems have "pitted neighbors against each other."

This is to the dad who was looking for his daughter's toy brown monkey at The Habit restaurant Thursday night.
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?
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.
I join wholeheartedly with John Boston's prayer, "Dear Lord, save me from the politically correct sub-committee of The Always Victimized."
Instead of a total bailout for the Detroit Three, what about making it attractive for prospective car buyers to buy an American-made vehicle?
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.
I wanted to thank The Signal and Mr. Collier for their recent coverage of the Saugus High School Band and Color Guard.
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.
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!

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.
In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."

Now that the saga of Flight 370 is coming to a close, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.
Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.
The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.
I have the time for Councilman TimBen Boydston to research and present the facts in a transparent manner when a 50-year lighted billboard contract is at stake.
Regarding the Sunday, March 16, Signal story "Abandoned Flag Flies Anew": I salute you, Patrick McGill. Being a vet, I truly appreciate someone who shows their patriotism toward our nation's symbol.
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.
This may be trivial. I enjoy reading The Signal except for one thing - your style on "jump heads."
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.
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.
Sunday night, March 2, I watched the 86th Oscars.
The Feb. 26 edition of The Signal published an article on the billboard proposal talks ("Billboard proposal talks draw hefty crowd to City Hall").
