From what planet did Leonard Pitts just return? His obvious hatred of and bias against Fox News was evident in his article about Fox’s coverage of Rupert Murdoch. His statement that Fox only provided 30 minutes of coverage is erroneous, if not a lie. That must be all he watched before he turned to a liberal station’s coverage.
I not only watched the coverage of the Rupert Murdoch scandal on the Fox cable channel, but I read about it on its website as well. I watched for hours on Fox as Rebekah Brooks, a key figure in the scandal, was interrogated.
I see Pitts as an extremist who only sees one side of issues. I can only think that people who continue to support his column are those that kowtow to his beliefs.

Deep thanks for care
My deepest thanks to the doctors and staff of the emergency room at French Hospital who stayed after hours to perform an MRI and send me to Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara for brain surgery.
Also, thanks to the crew of the ambulance for their expertise in getting me there quickly and safely. My utmost appreciation for the incredible skill of Dr. Zauner, the world-renowned neurosurgeon, which allowed him to successfully place a stent in the basal artery of my brain that was 98 percent blocked. Blessings to all of them.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude for the students, parents and staff of Hawthorne Elementary. The outpouring of generosity toward our “Team Hawthorne” fundraiser, supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, demonstrates the true character of our students and our school. Donating saved birthday money, opening piggy banks, selling lemonade, doing chores around the house and everything else it took to make a contribution all led to raising $3,500.
Hawthorne Elementary is making a difference! Thank You!
New party of no
We must raise the federal debt ceiling, now equaling our gross national product, or the United States will suffer irreparable harm — so we are told. The Democrats, Republicans and the president are locked in battle to cut spending and raise revenue, to pay down the federal debit? No, they are simply trying to decide how fast they should let the debt grow! Such madness. No wonder the economy is in shambles and national unemployment is 9.2 percent.
At least the Republicans in the House of Representatives have passed a bill to raise the debt ceiling, cut spending and move toward a balanced budget. The Democrats in the Senate rejected the House bill, and the Democratic president threatened a veto. So, now, who is the party of no?
