From time to time, I have made passing comments about my merry band of haters - those individuals who get a tremendous amount of satisfaction letting me know how much they disagree with me. Truth be told, I respect readers who take the time to express a differing opinion. I have engaged in some very polite, fascinating dialogues over these last couple of years. A few have even managed to alter my opinion on a couple of topics. I'm sure it will come as no great revelation when I say there are a lot of angry people among us. In fact, I encourage those of you who may be reading this in a public place to peer over your paper and survey the landscape.

THE LAUGHS NEVER ENDED! Davin Duckworth-Lee of Burbank is a novelist. "Anger Management" is a hilarious comedy about a man (Adam Sandler) who has repressed his anger since childhood, and becomes a sedate adult who finds himself suddenly sentenced to an anger- management class. The instructor (Jack Nicholson), deviously terrorizes him, as he cleverly instills his wit like a foil, using such memorable lines as, "I sleep in the nude!" I enjoyed the movie immensely, as there was never a mundane moment elapsing between scenes.

I have been reading the many letters that have run in the paper the past few weeks responding to both Paul Carney's original letter and his apology. I think that most of us would agree that it is sad that so much anger and conflict exists between the members of our community, but I also think that most of us can honestly say that it is not a surprise. We all know people who will say (including ourselves) that there is something wrong with "those people," whoever "those people" may be -- Armenian, Hispanic, White, Asian, rich, poor, young, old, etc. And although we wish that the circumstances were different, the truth is that there is tremendous stress and conflict in our community among the many diverse people who live here.

When I read your April 17 editorial titled "Bigotry drives flag debate," I felt sad and discouraged. I would like to see everyone in Glendale treated with dignity and respect -- and labeling people's behavior as "bigotry" does not move us closer to this goal. In every ethnic group in Glendale, there are some who feel anger toward other groups. But, I suspect, if you look beneath their anger, you will find fear. Fear by some that the city is being taken over by foreign cultures and values, and that their way of life has been changed forever.

It is becoming increasingly frustrating to watch the polarization that is occurring in our nation and in our community. Letters like Bob Tanabe's last week do nothing to ease the tensions. I too have yard signs in my front yard. So far three have been stolen, again in the middle of the night so the culprits are anonymous. However, my signs support John Kerry. So it would seem that "liberals" do not have the monopoly on yard terrorism. My car, with Kerry stickers, has been egged twice in La Cañada.

religion columnFor some reason, I have not been able to shake the thought that I am supposed to write about anger in this column. So I had determined that would be this week's topic when an interesting coincidence occurred. One of my daughters was struggling with jealousy over another sibling. She was exhibiting signs of anger and frustration and said she could not help her emotions. I told her that she was correct, we cannot help that we have certain "feelings" at times. But God does expect us to withhold reacting to them negatively as Christians.

Glendale News-Press readers have, at various times, expressed anger and even hostility toward the Armenian community. The Armenian populous has been scrutinized and labeled for being the minority group responsible for crime and criminal activity. Yes, people are concerned that the actions of one group can have an impact on the quality of life in Glendale. People have every right to be concerned. Labels seem to become a tool for expressing hatred and intolerance. But why?

I've lived in Glendale for 10 years. I've never seen such an angry little town with so many peoples clamoring that their faction's cause, pain, history, persecution, suffering, torture be assuaged first and foremost. It's a competition in Glendale, one I myself was deep in the mud-pit of when another one began: the controversy surrounding the memorial for the Korean comfort women. I was not initially absorbed by this piece of art but eventually got curious about its many symbols , like the clenched fists for anger and the empty chair for those who have passed.

Recent disasters like Hurricane Ike, the earthquakes in China and Taiwan, and even the recent Metrolink accident can overwhelm people with emotions like fear, anger, frustration and even dread. What do the Scriptiures tell us of coping with the aftermath of these disasters, and how can we become better people as a result? It only registered as a 5.4 earthquake on the Richter scale, but it was enough to make me feel anxious for a couple of days. It was my first California earthquake experience.

For at least half the roughly 25 people who showed up to a community meeting Thursday night on proposed electricity rate increases, it wasn't just the thought of ballooning bills that had them fuming, it was how the meeting was run. For starters, there was a police officer standing in the back of the room - not exactly a welcoming environment for dissent, they said. And when residents wanted to ask questions, officials requested they do so in small groups broken up by topic - diluting the reach of contrary opinions, critics claimed.

The French parliament is considering criminalizing the denial of the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks during World War I as genocide, a newspaper reported Tuesday. But Turkish President Abdullah Gul is urging France to drop the bill that would slap citizens who deny the killings as genocide with a one-year prison term and a heavy fine, according to BBC News. Turkey is warning French parliament that the legislation would gravely impact ties between the countries. Between 1915 and 1923, 1.5 million Armenians died at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.

Verizon and AT&T Wireless have pulled their advertising off KFI's “John and Ken” show in response to a campaign by several Latino groups to drive the controversial radio talk hosts off the air. Vons and Ralphs, which have advertised on the show in the past, have agreed to not advertise in the future. The National Hispanic Media Coalition made the announcement during a demonstration Thursday in front of KFI's offices in Burbank. The campaign to fire John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou began after the duo read the phone number of Jorge-Mario Cabrera, a local immigration rights advocate, on the air. Within minutes, Cabrera, a staff member with the Coalition of Humane Immigration Rights of L.A., reportedly received hundreds of hate-filled calls.

GLENDALE - A Glendale police officer has been ordered to enroll in anger management sessions after admitting to hitting a motorist during an off-duty road-rage incident in Burbank, court officials said. Glendale Police Officer Eric Ritter accepted a plea deal on Monday to plead no contest in the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Burbank to an amended misdemeanor count of disturbing the peace, which includes a section of fighting in public, court officials said. The Burbank city attorney's office originally charged Ritter with one misdemeanor battery charge for striking Armando Alvarez in October.

Anger continues to boil up among residents and business owners who have been without AT&T land line phone service for days now. At least 352 AT&T customers in Burbank have been without phone service since Saturday, company officials said, after a construction crew accidentally cut a cable. Crews have been working around the clock to restore service, a spokeswoman said. But for some customers, the damage has already been done and continues to accumulate. Brian Schneider of Schneider & Associates Claim Services said he has been without phone service since Monday morning.

Burbank and Glendale residents have a gloomier outlook on life as stress and other factors take their toll, according to an annual report that ranks congressional districts based on the welfare of their populations. In the annual report issued jointly by Gallup and Healthways, California congressional districts 27 and 29, which include most of Burbank and Glendale, rank 128 and 129, respectively, out of 436 districts in the nation for overall well-being. At least 1,000 adults are interviewed each day to provide real-time data on the health of Americans, with participants answering questions about physical and emotional health, behavior, work environment and basic access to things like fresh produce.

City officials this week got an earful from a group of local residents who said they are fed up with months of noise, dust and traffic associated with construction on the Walt Disney Co.'s massive creative campus. At the City Council meeting on Tuesday, residents on the 1300 block of Truitt Street said they have asked Disney and city officials to ease the effects of construction on a new childcare facility being built a mere 30 feet from their homes. City officials — who told the residents they had passed their concerns to Disney officials and were unaware they had not been resolved — agreed to set up a neighborhood meeting with all stakeholders to address the issues.
