Throw out the mayor

first_imgRe “Green light for more cops” (Nov. 10): Our beloved promise-whatever-you-want mayor, Tony V., says he will put 1,000 cops on the street by the end of 2007. Oops! No money available, so we bring out the trash-fee tax to insure the promise. Now Bernard Parks wants to abscond with this money for other budgetary deficits. Where is the accountability in office? I want my trash-fee tax returned and Tony V. thrown out with the remaining trash. Outenzee! – Thomas Wierzbicki – Gary Lowe Toluca Lake The myth Re “Learning” (Your Opinions, Nov. 9): Ron Lowe perpetuates the myth of “anti-immigration” protests and calls them racist, when he knows damn well the protests are about “illegal immigration.” If we can’t get our government to enforce our laws against all illegal immigration, regardless of the color of the perpetrator, we will cease to exist as a sovereign nation. Reporting false situations just to make the movement look bad is a “Lowe” attempt to obscure the real issue. – Michael Guetzow Woodland Hills Wrong term Re “Learning” (Your Opinions, Nov. 9): Ron Lowe used incorrect terminology when he said we have the “anti-immigration movement,” but that is not correct. We have the anti-illegal-immigration movement. I believe completely in immigration, which has made our country great; however, I do not believe in allowing immigrants to enter the United States illegally and giving them rights that belong only to citizens of our great country. Let them come in legally and become Americans. – Arline George Reseda Two evils Regarding Pat Robertson’s endorsement of Rudy Giuliani, Robertson is pro-life and pro-traditional-family and, I believe, a true social conservative in every sense of the word. However, by endorsing Giuliani for the presidency, Robertson is most likely choosing the lesser of two evils. After all, the thought of having Hillary in the White House is an anathema to any sound-minded, thinking person. – Brita Donovan Canyon Country Married priests Re “Praying for help” (Faith, Nov. 10): The sad tragedy of the critical shortage of priests is that while the pope and bishops ask Catholics to pray for vocations, they themselves obstinately refuse to recognize all the males to whom the Holy Spirit gives “the call,” i.e., married men – many of them already married deacons who would readily be ordained priests if the hierarchy permitted. Many, many others, are “proven males” (in Latin, viri probati), parishioners well educated, committed to faith and family, and deeply involved in the life of their parish and the wider Church. In the Eastern Catholic Church, such vocations are welcomed as the norm in parish life. Are we to believe that the Holy Spirit who inspired married priestly vocations in both the eastern and western “lungs” of the Catholic Church through the early 12th century, then stopped calling married men in the West to priesthood? – John P.
