first_imgWho’s walking who? Re: “Neutering legislation caged by committee” (April 11): It’s a doggone shame that a handful of backyard animal breeders and puppy-mill operators can stall a terrific proposal to require mandatory neutering and spaying of dogs and cats. These people could continue to breed animals under the proposal, but would have to pay for breeding permits. That’s their complaint: They would have to pay a fee. The spay-neuter proposal would eliminate the need to euthanize an estimated half-million or more dogs and cats a year in California. Virtually every humane agency in the state lobbied for the bill, as did many politicians, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Clearly, this is a case of a very small tail wagging a very big dog. – Kenneth Green Burbank Mom as pack animal Re Monday U cover “Take a Hike!”: Great cover story, terrible cover picture. A mom, a dad and three children on a hike – what’s wrong with this picture? Mom has a backpack (the lunch perhaps), a large canvas tote on her right arm (spare clothes, diapers, etc.) and the youngest child on her left hip. Dad has nothing but himself. That says it all! We women have worked hard to get away from the “barefoot and pregnant” image; what were you ladies thinking? – Jan Fisher North Hollywood My own union It’s not only rich developers and city employee unions that can make the City Council and mayor dance. Any union can command such a performance by city officials. Therefore I am forming a union, the Northeast Valley Union for Equal Treatment and Benefits for Citizens. Now maybe some of the potholes around here will be repaired. – James J. Menotti Sunland God invoked While listening to the speakers trying to console those who lived through the horror at Virginia Tech, I was aware that several speakers used the word God, and others invoked passages from the Bible. Is the ACLU going to file suit about separation of church and state, and if not, why not? Maybe if God was allowed on campus more often, we would not be needing this convocation today. – Barry Levy Redondo Beach Bad luck prez Since being elected in 2000, George W. Bush has been nothing but a curse on our nation. – Philip J. Hilow Sunland Where was Arnold? Re “Film production takes center stage here” (April 13): Didn’t Arnold Schwarzenegger promise when he was running for governor that he would introduce legislation to help runaway production by issuing tax incentives to companies shooting in California? But he didn’t even attend the Association of Film Commissioners International conference and trade show last week. Of course filmmaking is all about making money. What isn’t? But it’s just not logical that places like New Mexico, Louisiana and New York offer breaks to the production companies and California doesn’t. Why does our governor choose to ignore the business that allowed him the opportunity to run for governor in the first place? – Gretchen Roe Woodland Hills160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! When something like the devastating shooting at Virginia Tech occurs, we must ask why leaders speak of more gun laws. We will have violence as long as we have people. In other societies, the tools of such violence are ball bearings or nails packaged with explosives, knives, hatchets or even airplanes. Strict gun laws that are stripping Americans of their right to protect themselves are already in place. – Rick Yerrington Tujunga last_img read more
