I'd like to thank all the people and volunteers over the years that help save and run the Alex Theatre. What upsets me is that the state of California can take it away and sell it. We the people of Glendale and taxpayers to the state of California have paid for the Alex. People are the government and I think we forget that power. I made my opinion simple, instead of complex, like our government in California has become. We need to get back to simple government or lose what we have.

President Obama proposed a budget plan this week that included additional funds for struggling programs in California and around the nation, but that didn’t stop Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger from urging congressional representatives to ask for more. Schwarzenegger sent a letter this week to members of California’s congressional delegation, asking them to not only support the proposed budget increases for programs in California, but to push for more. The governor has complained that California receives 78 cents in federal funding for every tax dollar it sends to Washington, while other states receive far more, like New Mexico, which gets $2.03.
