Who's the racist in this argument?

Tim Myer's column (Oct. 19) would be positively breathtaking if it weren't so laughably predictable.

Anti-virus, Take 2

As a counterpoint to Joe Messina's answers to questions regarding anti-virus and e-mail, unfortunately Joe is recommending products he also sells and services.

Government charity starts at home

As we grow older, none of us can be certain we won't find ourselves at some point needing assistance to help us pay the rent, mortgage, utility bill, medical bill or some other bills that come up. Senior members among us are struggling to do just these things. Many are on fixed incomes. Others simply don't have the means to meet the basic needs.

Prop. 8 opponents intolerant?

For the second night in a row, our "Yes On Prop. 8" yard signs have been stolen from our front yard. I find it very hypocritical that the liberal groups that support gay marriage call people who vote for traditional family values "intolerant," when they themselves don't allow for free speech when it disagrees with their views.

Prop. 8 opponents oppose free speech

Wow! So this is where we are in our society? Last night my "Yes on 8" yard sign was stolen from my front yard. This doesn't surprise me, however, given the type of people that would not support Prop. 8. If Prop. 8 is defeated, then this is just a glimpse of the suppression of free speech to come. You can be sure that B. Hussein Obama and the rest of the "Dims" will try to further suppress the voice of those who stand for traditional values.

Only about 10 percent of homes have not taken the rebates and keep the old softeners. Yet unless we remove these chloride pollution sources, we could be forced to install a "brine line" to the ocean. That is estimated to cost every home $500 more and an average business $2,000 more on the sewer portion of the property tax bills. This fee would be annual, and would apply ...

Marching bands

The indomitable Mr. Boston had me laughing out loud at the breakfast table. He must feel the same way about walking music the same way I feel about soccer and still you ruin half a sport page filling it up with that junk.

City Council flip-flopped on Benz Road

In response to the Letter to the Editor titled "Kudos to the council" (Oct. 17, 2008): Sure. Kudos to the council for flip-flopping all over the place with the Benz neighborhood traffic problem.

Pit bulls are not people

I wasn't going to write, but the inane follow-up comments on the pit bull situation at Valencia High School have caused me to write.

Boston’s message

John Boston's Dec. 7, 2008, column "On Dirt Clods and an Acton Bullet" is not just interesting, entertaining and creative, but important and poignant.

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.

City, take a stand against petition blockers

I know there are quite a few people in the SCV who can remember back to the '40s, '50s and '60s during the big strikes that some of the big companies had - and how violent they were.

As the College of the Canyons Theatre Department performs "Rent" at the Performing Arts Center on May 9, 10, 11, 16, and 17, it puts the spotlight on Marfan syndrome, which is believed to have caused the death of "Rent" playwright Jonathan Larson at the age of 35.
