Still don’t know
I was arrested in 1978 and went to jail because I protested that Pacific Gas and Electric Company didn’t know what they were going to do with their nuclear waste. They still don’t know. Instead of storing it on-site next to two earthquake faults, I suggest they store it in the backyard of Doug Stevens.
He had a letter to the editor stating, “How much more money must we, all of us, spend to appease the ridiculous intervention of those who oppose nuclear power” (“Lamps and log fires,” Dec. 24)?
Mothers for Peace expresses a concern of many of us living downwind. Stevens can watch over this nuclear waste in his own backyard.

Open to all ages
The editorial page of The Tribune ran a short article about me in which it stated that I am “on to something” in helping folks 80 years old and beyond (“Bouquets and brickbats,” Oct. 15). The editorial said, “Great idea, but we don’t see any reason to wait until 80. We’re starting our own love list now.”
My goal has always been to help all 80s and beyond men and women. But if The Tribune thinks the love letters should be available to all ages, I wholeheartedly agree.
Just send me your (ageless) name and address and I will send a free copy of our love lists printed form, ready for your own listing of the people, places and activities you love.
I can be reached by mail at P.O. Box 2173, Avila Beach, 93424, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regarding the article titled “Ex Cal Poly dean suing school” (Dec. 22):
Did anyone notice that despite all the political correctness proselytized by The Tribune, reporter Nick Wilson found the need to describe Mohammad Noori as a “57-year-old Iranian-American Muslim?”
How in the world does describing Noori in this manner add to the story? If Noori were an atheist, Christian, Buddhist or agnostic, would there be the need to do the same?
Reading Ralph Bush’s letter titled, “Warming a hoax” (Dec. 24), gave me a sort of sadness deep in my heart. See, I’m a sophomore in high school, and I have several conservative family members and friends whom I love and respect.
However, whenever I read a letter like Bush’s, I start to feel bad for the balanced, intelligent and well-informed conservatives I relate with purely because I know that they’re getting a really terrible stereotype because of letters like his, a stereotype of ignorance and blunt disregard for science.
I write this letter as an apology for all those decent conservatives out there whom I sometimes judge because I read things like Bush’s letter. They must be mortified to be related to this scientific illiteracy in their political standpoint.
