"It raises awareness about what we're doing," said Stephanie Brooks, president of the Gay/Straight Alliance Club at CV, which sponsors the Day of Silence.

Approval of waiver could be dangerous It was extremely discouraging to read of the City Council's denial of an appeal for the 1,800-square-foot home in Chevy Chase Canyon ("City Council shuts down plan appeal," May 18). We have a hillside ordinance in order to maintain the integrity and quality of residential life in the hills of Glendale. Critical to this is the minimum 7,500-square- foot requirement. Ignoring this minimum will lead to overbuilding in this delicate environment.

Paul Andersen, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- Looking back, Jon Bailey remembered the idea came to him last year, while conducting the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles in its series of "With a Mighty Voice" concerts at four Southern California churches. "I realized that I've done what I came to do," the soft-spoken Bailey said. It was time to go. After 14 years at the helm of what the L.A. Times has described as one of the last important links to a glorious tradition in music, Bailey decided to step down as artistic director.

Editor's Note: Numerous instances of plagiarism have been discovered in Dan Kimber's “Education Matters” column, which ran in the News- Press from September 2003 to September 2011. In those columns where plagiarism has been found, a For the Record specifying the details will be appended to the piece. I find myself for the second week in a row taking a position that departs, only slightly, from my basic political tendency. I'm having some difficulty with a new state law, the FAIR Education Act, that will require textbooks created by the California Board of Education to introduce the issue of sexual orientation when teaching American culture.

Local gays and lesbians on Wednesday applauded President Obama's public support of same-sex marriage, calling the announcement a pivotal moment in their fight for equality. In explaining the “evolution” of his view on gay marriage over the last several years, Obama told ABC's Robin Roberts that “at a certain point, I've just concluded that for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” His statements in support of same-sex marriage were the first for a sitting U.S. president.

I was quite surprised to read not one but two columnists attack a new law, the FAIR Education Act, just signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown. I usually find both columnists quite interesting and agree with most of their viewpoints, especially Dan Kimber's “Education Matters” column. I'm not quite sure why both Kimber and Patrick Caneday (“Small Wonders: Small Wonders: Honor them for what they've done,” July 23) are so hostile to inclusion of gay and lesbian historical people and matters.

City Planners Need Superman's Help The city planners could use some help from Superman (Locals Assist Planning Process, Feb. 24). Maybe he could help them fix the huge disconnect between their responsibility for addressing our deepening housing affordability "crisis" and the disproportionate amount of time and money spent on parochial concerns over down zoning multifamily-zoned properties in Glendale. It is not clear how the city gets away with using zoning to exclude future renters from areas that currently are, and have for many years, been zoned for multifamily housing.

Last week, the Episcopal Church moved closer to full acceptance of gay men and lesbians, taking steps toward recognizing same-sex marriage and gay bishops. However, some believe that this decision by the church is doing it more harm than good, as seen by the many churches that exist as part of the breakaway Anglican Church in North America after the 2003 election of Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Church?s first gay bishop. What do you think about this? Do you believe that in time, full acceptance of gay men and lesbians, same-sex marriage and the ordination of gay bishops will no longer be an issue for the church, or any church for that matter?

Law won't stand up to an impact report Given the known carcinogenic properties of smoke, the City Council will need to have a decent environmental impact report prepared in order to support its decision to allow outdoor grilling ("Outdoor grill ordinance is introduced," Thursday). Any environmental report would also have to consider the risk that outdoor grilling will send sparks through the air ? a real risk in our fire-prone community. Of course, both these risks could be easily mitigated by continuing the present requirement that grilling be done indoors in well-ventilated kitchens, but it's hard to see how they could be mitigated otherwise.
