Paul Sibek finally speaks out about churches ("Churches and politics," Letters, Nov. 20), as he perceives, being involved too much in the political process.
I have read the editorials on yes versus no on Proposition 8 because marriage can only be defined by the creator of marriage - God. I voted yes on 8 because God said that marriage is between a man and a woman.
Poor Gary, poor Gary (Horton, "Free at Last! At least for the majority," Local Opinion, Nov. 12).
Congress authorizes $700 billion to save the mortgage meltdown but no one has a clue how to apply the funds.
Republican animosity to government regulation is long-standing. And yes, they emphasize property rights over notions of the commons and have often been comfortable sacrificing wildlife, air, and water quality in the pursuit of profits.
Thank you, Diana Sevanian, for your article in the opinion section on Sept. 7 regarding Sarah Palin.
Southern California Edison's hypocrisy is now exposed. Very exposed. So much for their "Environmentally Conscious" advertising.
Karl Marx, the father of communism, stated in a speech given in Brussels, Belgium, on Jan. 8, 1848: "The (free trade) system is destructive. I will use the (free trade) system to break down nationalities in order to build my communist world."
Who is responsible for copy editing at The Signal? I wonder this almost daily, most often when the copy is local, but sometimes even with copy from the wire services. Examples are voluminous, but a case in point: Did anyone there notice that "Doonesbury" was there in name only (no strip) in the Sept. 18 edition?

I suggest to David Kirscher ('Flipping the bird' is protected expression, Letters, Nov. 11) that even though "flipping off" a group of political demonstrators may be protected as a form of "political speech," how about practicing common decency? Just because it is legal doesn't make it right.
The public seems to have already forgotten that the election in Los Angeles County was a travesty for early voters.
Gov. Schwarzenegger seems to have it all wrong. Originally he said he believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman and he rejected legislation authorizing same-sex marriage (ref. Los Angeles Times, Nov. 10: "Schwarzenegger tells backers of gay marriage").
Dear John Graham Who Voted Yes on 8 (Letters, Nov. 13): You believe in the sanctity of marriage that is the design of God, our creator, and believe it should be between one man and one woman in a miraculous procreative purpose.
I replaced the word "religion" or "religious" with "gay" or "gayness" in the following from EEOC. Interesting!
Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.
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.
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.
