The Hitler wanna-be
Please take off one of your editorial shoes and throw it at that Iranian dog, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
He’s itching for a showdown and we’d best be giving him his heart’s desire before he becomes too powerful.
We dilly-dallied on Adolf Hitler and look where that got us.
Plight of the hungry
I wish to thank The Tribune for the excellent series raising up the plight of those impacted by the economic downturn and also for their support of today’s Hunger Walk that will help fund the San Luis Obispo Food Bank and its affiliates.
The Hunger Walk is just one of the many ways that local residents can assist their neighbors during this rough period of rising unemployment and poverty.

Where are the signs now?
During the weeks of killing heat in the Midwest and East Coast this summer and the recent sweep by Hurricane Earl up the Atlantic Coast, there was a curious lack of those cute “half-witty” homemade signs ridiculing President Barack Obama and the science of climate change that were so prevalent during the record-setting blizzards on the East Coast last year.
Maybe the skeptics had their sarcastic brains fried by the record-breaking heat waves that scorched much of Russia, the United States, India and many other countries.
Even Bjorn Lomborg, the noted Danish political scientist, climate change skeptic and author of “The Skeptical Environmentalist,” has reversed course and joined the ranks of the vast majority of reputable scientists seeking ways to address the ever-increasing warming of our planet Earth, complete with the concurrent extreme winter weather, fierce hurricanes and floods and other extreme weather phenomena. No funny signs? It’s probably a “sign” of the deadly serious times to come here on Earth.

A good man lost
I would like people to know that we have lost a very kind, generous, patient man with the passing of Ronald Arthur “Tuffy” Kelsey in a tragic accident (“Motor home death under investigation,” Sept. 16).
I had the privilege to meet and get to know Kelsey over the past year. My wife and I purchased an RV and we didn’t have a clue about how they worked. Fortunately, RVs were Kelsey’s passion. He knew them inside and out.
Being new to the RV world, I had a million questions. Kelsey was always available, teaching me the way to do things, fixing things that needed fixing.
It wasn’t about the money for Kelsey. He really cared about every customer and he made you feel like family. Even though I only knew him for a year, I felt I knew him forever.
Kelsey, you will be missed.
