I've been reading about the Armenian Genocide issue in the Glendale News-Press for months and I don't quite understand why it is so necessary for the United States of America to enact a law recognizing the tragedy. Is a group of Armenians pushing for such a recognition in Europe or Asia or South America or Mexico or anywhere else? I'm not being sarcastic about this matter -- I really want know why this hatred keeps flowing -- and why should America be involved.

Historical revisionism and political correctness continue to gain space in the “Mailbag” section. Latest is the claim by Richard Bennett (Oct. 20) criticizing the Rev. Bryan Griem about yoga. Bennett claims “algebra … was invented by a Muslim.” This is utter nonsense. A Muslim? Who? Well, several pro-Islamist websites claim he was Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn Musa, described by them as the father of algebra. But there's a slight problem: Abu Ja'far was a newcomer. He lived from 780 to 850 AD. The origins of algebra precede his birth by 2,500 years - in ancient Babylonia, Egypt and Athens.

I?ve worked in the entertainment industry for almost 20 years. And in that time I?ve seen the bubble of self-importance in which A-List Hollywood resides. This has been only a minor personal annoyance for me. But with the recent uproar over Roman Polanski?s arrest, I can?t keep quiet. I know this isn?t really a local issue. But as the father of two daughters, I think it?s a human issue. We live in the entertainment capital of the world, many of us gainfully employed there, and this negatively affects all of us. Hollywood is already condemned for being morally depraved, and letting an admitted sex offender ignore his punishment does nothing to change that view.

The Armenian Genocide is anything but "ancient history." It occurred during the 20th century and not the medieval period as letter-writer Ruth Anderson makes it sound (" Is genocide pertinent today or ancient history?", Nov. 10). Secondly, for the sake of argument, I'll agree that the U.S. should not get involved. Why then is it necessary for the U.S. to recognize the Jewish Holocaust? Why do we uninterruptedly need to have our heads drilled about the tragedy of the Jews?

In response to the editorial regarding the Glendale Federal Bank headquarters, I am quite impressed with the author's knowledge of ancient Rome. How this relates to our present issue with the proposed renovation of Glendale Federal Bank, however, is a mystery. Perhaps the author should restrain his essays to ancient history instead of contemporary urban problems. A more accurate comparison would be the demolition of the Philharmonic Hall, a World War I-era structure that was located in downtown Los Angeles across from Pershing Square.

Josh Kleinbaum During his 12 years based at Pearl Harbor, Dave Weaver didn't talk to other sailors about the event that brought infamy to the naval base and began the second front to a brutal World War. He didn't need to talk about it. Remnants of Dec. 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, were all around him. "I saw it all, all the areas," said Weaver, who served at Pearl Harbor from 1954 to 1965....

Paul M. Anderson GLENDALE -- By the time the so-called Civil War Bandit gets out of federal prison, his exploits might be considered ancient history. Charles A. Borden -- the man dubbed the Civil War Bandit by FBI agents because of the hat he would wear during his alleged bank robberies -- has cut a deal with prosecutors that would land him in prison for 21 years. U.S. District Judge Margaret M. Morrow is scheduled to sentence Borden March 20. Under the plea agreement, the U.S.Attorney's office has recommended 255 months in prison.

CITY HALL — Officials are preparing a second review of a seismic retrofit project for Glendale’s Municipal Services Building following persistent cost overruns that inflated the project’s original price tag from $11.8 million in 2006 to a new grand total of $15.9 million, according to an audit report. City officials blame a series of change orders related to structural damage at the four-story stilted building on the corner of Broadway and Glendale Avenue. When the project began in 2006, officials had not planned to encounter severe foundational damage to any of the four main supports for the building, which was constructed in 1964.
