    Miscarriage of justice

    Thank you for publishing the commentary by Victor Davis Hanson on July 18, “The turbulent summer of 2014.” Not only did it ring true, it also was eloquent and very much on point. Hanson spoke the feelings and thoughts of many, many Americans who have been forced to suffer under the...

    Gangs are cancer

    In need of moderates

    I just love people spouting off about how Congress can’t get anything done. Yes, Congress is constipated. The blockage (a very apt analogy) is Tea Party Republicans who either outvote or shout down their moderate colleagues. Moderate, sensible members of their party seem too weak to stand...

    Where did the billboards on Hwy. 101 south of SLO go?

    Travelers can rejoice in the restoration of scenic views from Highway 101 of the Johnson Ranch, just south of San Luis Obispo’s city limits. The two billboards on the property have been removed.

    CO2 causes drought

    California’s unprecedented heat wave and drought (“First six months of the year were the warmest in California history,” July 22) is yet another unmistakable wake-up call to the increasing risks of climate change.

    More Hobby hysteria

    Evelyn Cole’s letter on July 9 in reaction to the Hobby Lobby decision outrageously lumps the U.S. Supreme Court together with ISIL and the Taliban, falsely claiming that the Supreme Court “wants to ban birth control.”
