    Money not funny

    Alexis de Tocqueville said of us in 1830: “America demonstrates invincibly … that the middle classes can govern.” Today, this governance is increasingly at risk. Tribune copy editor Steve Provost (July 30) recognizes this and deplores the corrosive influence of political megadollars...

    Act now on climate

    Climate change is central in the discussions Gov. Jerry Brown is having with Mexican officials (“Jerry Brown addresses education, energy, immigration in Mexico,” July 29) on his current trip. He’s been strong in enforcing the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32), ...

    Pay for it yourself

    If you follow the same line of thinking that the San Luis Obispo City Council uses on the Laguna Lake issue, then I think it is only fair that all of the related expenses of the City Council chambers and offices (cleaning, utilities, etc.) be at the sole expense of the City Council members. After...

    Pandora’s box opened

    On July 20, I went to the 927 Art Show in Cambria. For the greater part, it offered what I expected and have enjoyed in the past: whimsy, novelty and an exhibition of the creativity and talent of local artists. And then I was exposed to the desiccated carcass of a dead cat and the title essentially...

    Art provokes feelings

    I must say upfront that I love cats, that I wept when we recently had to put down one of ours and that I was disturbed at the sight of the prize-winning entry at the recent 927 Show in Cambria. However, the long tradition of this show is to encourage entries that may be humorous, political, zany...

    Then nothing is art

    I am writing on behalf of the board of directors of HART (Homeless Animal Rescue Team). Numerous volunteers and others have contacted us about how truly taken aback they are at the inclusion of a petrified cat in the recent 927 Show. While art should be able to broach any subject, the same does...
