State should have taken on Blue Cross

On July 4, I read an article in The Signal titled "State feared insurance big guns." In summary, the article stated that Anthem Blue Cross had the largest number of rescissions "about 1,770" between January 1, 2004, and now. Having read this article, I turned a bright shade of purple. There is nothing that can destroy a family faster than to have their health insurance cancelled. Although the article does not say, I assume these were most likely individual insurance policies and not group policies.

Will the real urban center please stand up?

There has been a lot of talk generated over the term "urban center" - did our city manager say he wants to turn our suburban bedroom community into a legitimate urban center of its own, or was he incorrectly paraphrased?

Urban centers should first do no harm

The first rule of "urban centers" should be a line from the Hippocratic Oath: "First of all, do no harm."

Let’s take control of the price of oil

I wonder what would happen if President Bush decided to sell a lot of the oil that he has in our reserves, say, for $75 per barrel. Just what would the buyers of futures in oil do? Maybe lose a lot of money?

Criticizing the critic — a message for deaf ears?

Vinton Lampton's assertion that only New Orleans residents and Democrats deplored Katrina ("God bless the tough Midwesterners," Letters, July 6) reveals that he is deaf to all but Republican indoctrination.

Mormons' opposition to gay marriage is hypocritical

On Sunday, June 29, a letter was read at all Mormon worship services worldwide calling on members to contribute their time and money to help pass the California initiative this November that would limit marriage to different-gender couples. The letter, from the Office of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said, "The Church's teaching and position on this moral issue are unequivocal. Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God." (Actually, the "State" did it before God did.)

Creditors must keep an eye on Newhall Land

Since the debtor is still in possession, the debtor, Newhall Land will still be paying the salaries of its executive officers, while those to whom they owe substantial debts must bite the bullet.
