In all the letters about City Councilman David Weaver’s alleged statement about Armenians and smoking, seemingly no one has asked the only important question: Do Armenian-Americans smoke more than other groups? (“Apology owed to city of Glendale,” Mailbag, Tuesday). Every demographic group in this country carries out risky behavior and has medical problems in disproportionate numbers. To take some obvious examples, sickle-cell anemia is almost exclusively an African-American problem.

Don’t use England as health-care model It breaks my heart that Americans can be so naive! They don’t realize that more and more of their rights are being taken from them, and they are being made to think that the changes are for their own good. These changes, in particular President Obama’s health-care pan, are not for their welfare. Case in point: I have had a pen friend in England for more than 50 years. When her elderly mother needed a gall bladder operation, she had to wait eight months for the surgery while in great pain all the time!

GLENDALE — Cocaine and marijuana use in Glendale is significantly higher than the county average, according to a preliminary report Thursday to a cross section of nonprofit, health and school district officials. The Quality of Life Indicators report, which measures everything from water quality to infant mortality rates, culled data from a number of sources, including Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the U.S. Census Bureau and the city’s own statistics, among others.

I am a Glendale resident with no children in the Glendale schools; however, I strongly favor a parcel tax (“Educators consider parcel tax,” Nov. 12). I believe that the quality of the Glendale Unified School District is the strongest influence on our property values. Marlene Walker, who opposes the parcel tax in a letter published Nov. 16 titled “Parcel tax should be reserved for parents,” now benefits from enhanced property values due to our fine school system, and her property will continue to appreciate as long as our schools are better than surrounding communities.

Dig deeper for health-care truth Health-care reform is not an option; it is a necessity if we are to avoid another economic catastrophe. Let’s look at the facts and then try to understand the motives of those on the right who are intent on destroying President Obama’s effort to solve the problem. Health-care expenditures are now 16% of U.S. GDP and are estimated to rise to 40% if the system is not reformed. This expense load on U.S. businesses is restricting and will soon cripple America’s ability to compete in the world market.
