Radical members of the "No on 8" campaign in California have quickly turned their disappointment over the reinstatement of traditional marriage into rabid hostility.

I'm amazed by liberal semantics

Interestingly, the lead article on Oct. 17 read "Baby killer gets 25 to life." Indeed, the mother was convicted of killing her baby shortly after birth and tossing the lifeless body into a trash bin.

Thanks, firefighters

I am writing about the fires we have seen throughout the Los Angeles area. The firefighters have done a terrific job of keeping the fire contained. We have a great fire department that reacts to any threat from fires very seriously. I can say that I feel safe with them doing their job.

The financial lesson is up to you

Can any financial institution make loans or ridiculous offers without a willing purchaser? Second question: Would you invest in a financial institution that showed poor profitability or one that was booming and was very profitable?

I think that the Valencia Public Library should be redone. The library is a great place to get books, especially in the bad economic times we are having.

What happened to fair and balanced news?

Would it have been too much trouble for Signal staff writer Brian Charles to contact Dr. Marc Winger of the Newhall School District to be able to present a balanced article regarding the "Gay couple living American dream" as reported in the Oct. 30 article?

O.J.: All about intercollegiate athletics

In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.
