A message about oil for our elected officials

Below is a letter that I have sent to Gov. Schwarzenegger, Sens. Boxer, and Feinstein, and Reps. McKeon, George Runner, and Strickland.

Do fireworks really damage air quality?

I found it quite perplexing that in Parimal Rohit's article ("SCV: Where you can see the air you breathe," July 8), neither he nor the South Coast Air Quality Management District official mentioned the recent fires as a possible cause for the poor air quality.

Gay marriage: It’s time to give up witch hunts

I'm a straight, married man who doesn't worry about what other folks are doing. A wise state legislator recently remarked that with the war on terrorism, the economy, the collapse of the housing market and the high price of gasoline, he had more important things to worry about than gays getting married. I concur.
