However, with the News-Press, it seems only Armenians have the right
of expression. Any letter I write is never published. How come if I write
something unpleasant, it is considered racist, but when an Armenian does,
it's OK? Much space is given to Armenian letters ... very little to
others, except, of course, Robert Morrison, who is given space usually
accorded to columnists. And I do enjoy his letters.
Recently, there was a full-page story on the leader of the Armenian
Apostolic Church, plus an article on the Armenian Genocide bill, taking
up most of the front page. Plus, in the religion section, another whole
article on the Armenian Leader. All that in a six-page main section! Does
anyone else live in Glendale? I think not?
Much has been made of "old-timers" complaining about the way our city
has changed. Remember ... the "old-timers" made this "Jewel City" what it
is, not the newcomers. We are being told that we have to accept
diversity, which is fine, but not total takeover, so that one does not
even feel at home in one's city. My next-door neighbor, who has lived
here for 60 years, recently bought a house in Seal Beach for a sometime
getaway, and now she spends more time there than here, because she says
she feels like an outsider in her own city.
Pretty soon we will have the same kind of "flight" we had in the inner
city. Neither the City Council, nor the Glendale News-Press has the guts
to say, "Diversity is fine, but total takeover is not!"
