Nor forgetting a lot about this war In response to the Leader's Mailbag letter, "Let's not forget," on Aug. 27-28, by Stella Kilinger, that's right, let's not forget how much the Iraq war is costing all of us. Let's not forget how many military personnel are coming home to inadequate health care because the Vet hospitals are so overwhelmed. Lets' not forget Osama bin Laden. I thought he was responsible for Sept. 11. Exactly where is he now? Let's not forget that its our job as citizens in a democratic society to question everything.

It was the second performance of the Glendale Renaissance Orchestra at the Americana at Brand, on the green. It was well-attended with picture-perfect weather ("Concert Review: A classical beat," July 7). It was fabulous! The conductor was genius. He carried the crowd as if we were feathers. Everyone was smiling, singing along or just attentively listening and enjoying ... and the dancing at the end was such fun. I am exceedingly proud to be a Glendale resident. Owning my home here since 1970, I have seen nothing quite like what Americana has brought to town.

MONTROSE ? Standing under an American flag with a peace sign in hand, Roberta Medford has been shouted at, told to "go home," and been shown the occasional middle finger since she started the Montrose Peace Protest against the war in Iraq in February 2006. But usually, the people in cars that drive by Medford and her fellow protesters at the corner of Ocean View Boulevard and Honolulu Avenue in the Montrose Shopping Park, at the site of the Montrose Vietnam War Memorial, are supportive, she says.
