Thanks to my guardian angel

Yes, I believe in angels, since I met one accidentally on Sierra Highway recently when my car hit a rock in the road.

Pay inequality is not a myth of the liberal left

Leveling the playing field has been a struggle our country has mightily faced throughout history, but denying the existence of inequality creates an even larger hurdle.

Connecting with the liberal mind

With regards to Linda McCaskill and Curt Scott's criticism of Rob Kerchner's claim to know what liberals are thinking, I guess I have to agree with them, because I often wonder "What in the world are they thinking?"

What about the car drivers in motorcycle accidents?

Robert Burton wants to ban motorcycles from public streets because of the many accidents and even fatalities involving motorcycles, and because he saw a rider riding on the back wheel only, and because motorcycle riders cost our state many dollars in hospital bills.

The smart votes on SB52 were from the Republicans

A recent letter-to-the editor ("We need more transparency in our elections," April 1 in The Signal) authored by a Democrat, chided Republicans in general and Assemblyman Scott Wilk specifically for the failure to pass "Disclose Act, SB52," purportedly a bill intended to put sunlight on "dark money."

Water cutbacks should be required of all

I seem to have been living in a bubble that was not transparent. As I have been hearing for the past few years, and more so recently, we, the state of California, have been and are now in a very serious drought.

Faulty mind-reading

Kudos to Linda McCaskill's riposte ("Who gives the most to charity?" April 7 in The Signal) to Rob Kerchner's claim to know what "liberals" are thinking (Defining difference," March 27 in The Signal.

The best for others, in 2 flavors

Let's stipulate that both sides of the political spectrum want the best for others (a fair assumption, especially since both sides insist that is so).

Hillary’s sad Benghazi strategy

As Hillary Clinton prepares for her Democratic coronation as the next Democratic presidential candidate, she's decided to try dealing with the inconvenience of the Benghazi tragedy through her new book.

Pitch in and keep our valley beautiful

Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.

A salute to Maya Angelou

Perhaps the most difficult task to make a financial living at is that of being a poet. Yet, if one is great enough and has a measure of luck - like Maya Angelou - it is not impossible.

Concerning our local charter schools

I read with interest the article in the May 26 issue of The Signal ("Pavley's bill would change charter school law") about the bill introduced by California Sen. Fran Pavley regarding charter schools.

Violence in America

Historically we are a violent people and mankind's history throughout the world demonstrates that we are violent. Laws passed protect us all from violence. But laws alone can't eliminate violence.

Look at Switzerland

In Charlie Vignola's column ("Sensible about gun control," May 20) Vignola is basically making the intellectually flaccid argument that guns cause their own misuse.

Lousy films in SCV

Why do we not get fine films out here in SCV?

Cutting back on water use

A couple of years ago, when local officials said to cut down on the use of water, the wife and I bought a new dishwasher and a new washing machine that use less water.

Vilification of Sterling

I would be less troubled with the vilification of Donald Sterling if the popular press, including printed and electronic media, were as aggressive in the treatment of prominent blacks, including sports figures, when they make blatantly racist statements about whites.

Freedom of speech needs some curbs

Pastor Hegg's Sunday column "We don't have to think alike," is, as usual, rooted in fair-mindedness as he supports actions being legislated against, but not simply words.

Sliding down the slippery slope of speech sanctions

Pastor Hegg's column published in The Signal May 11, "We don't have to think alike," beautifully states my own concerns about the current situations when what people say is being used to destroy them financially and socially.
