Patricia Harris wrote in the Oct. 3 edition that she “knew she had to go” to the Sept. 12 gathering in Washington, D.C., because never before in her life has she ever been afraid for America (Community Commentary, “Marching toward taking the country back”). Well, Harris, perhaps that was because, by your own admission, you were never “a political activist” until Sept. 12, when you suddenly felt fear for our country because you were manipulated by the conservative agenda, and most likely, Fox News’ resident fear monger Glenn Beck.

DOWNTOWN — This year's November election kicked off a hard-hitting town hall discussion Sunday night by conservative radio talk show hosts on issues ranging from the "tea party" movement to California's business environment. About 1,300 people attended 870 AM KRLA radio's "Town hall 2010" forum at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, where radio hosts Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, Mike Gallagher and Kevin James took on some of the state's and nation's most pressing issues, including the upcoming Nov. 2 election.

Words are important. We can have discussions about politics, policies and ideas and forget the role that words play in shaping how we feel about an issue. It seems, on its face, an obvious thing, but when news agencies dictate the terminology of debate, it's more insidious than Orwell's "1984. " It's more dangerous because most of us take it for granted. Recent revelations from News Corp. that it uses "Government Option" to describe a component of health-care reform as opposed to the term "Public Option" reveals that the company wants to shape the debate by tapping into the inherent mistrust some people have in those we elect.

One day we’ll all have health care I would like to extend my thanks to the tireless Lynn McGinnis for advising us to let our elected representatives know how we feel regarding health-care reform (“Tell representatives how you feel,” March 22). I did let my elected representatives know how I feel, and they have now acted on behalf of myself and the majority of American citizens in passing a meaningful health-care reform bill. I look forward to that bright day in the near future when every American, rich and poor alike, has access to quality health care.

I 've been feeling like one of those oil-covered sea gulls on a beach in Louisiana. Every morning I get up and take a look at the newspaper. I glance at the headline, usually in dismay, then automatically flip to the bottom of the page to see who died. It's morbid, I know. But it's just habit. And you probably do it too. On Monday it was former Dodgers pitcher Jose Lima's picture at the bottom of the front page. He was only 37 years old, five years younger than me. That's hard to swallow.

This is with regard to the meeting held regarding Glendale Beelines. We realize Beeline 13 has low ridership and may be a target for cancellation (“Beeline costs may transfer,” Oct. 1). However, some type of public transportation should be provided a community that has historically had public transportation. Due to the city’s failure to aggressively pursue the retention of Metro Line 201 service, which we had for more than 70 years, we have had all these problems.

I’m not feeling particularly rosy this election day. Like a lot of people, I’ve been crunching numbers, gathering receipts and pouring a little more single malt into my glass in order to prepare for one of life’s more unpleasant inevitabilities — taxes. Now that I’m almost done, I think I may need another shot. I worked all year, had approximately 25% of my wages taken out by the taxman, and now that April 15 draws near, I discovered that I still owe a hefty sum to Uncle Sam. In short, any money I managed to save over the course of a very long year of labor will be swallowed up paying more taxes.
