All right. Enough already with the raid on flies (“Gadfly’s audience on the dais shrinks,” Aug. 8)! First, President Obama strikes one of our brethren dead right in the Oval Office without the courtesy of a trial. Such actions from a constitutional lawyer is bad enough. A few days later, Iranian President Ahmadinejad tried his hand at swatting another one of our brothers during a televised speech without first declaring Jihad — a definitive violation of extremist protocol.

Gary Moskowitz Andrew Dorosy decided that if he was president of the United States, the first thing he would do is put a big net over America to keep it safe. Andrew and the other 19 students in Karen Nagao's kindergarten class at Dunsmore Elementary School were asked this week "What would you do if you were president?" Student responses came out much more intuitive and aware than Nagao had expected. "I would put like a big net over the whole country so the other guys couldn't shoot us," said Andrew, 5. "You know, the bad guys from the other state."

Liberal slant weakens film Dink O'Neal of Burbank is an actor and singer. Three weeks before the election, DreamWorks SKG releases a liberally slanted film focusing on the nation's two highest offices. Coincidence? Hardly! Writer/director Rod Lurie's engrossing screenplay and excellent performances from Joan Allen, Gary Oldman and Jeff Bridges pale slightly due to Hollywood's agenda: Democrats good, Republicans bad. Due to the sexually based storyline, viewers are even treated to a Clintonesque absolution of sorts, complete with a finger-wagging chastisement of Congress and America for daring to question someone's ethics.

This is in response to Francis Adams’ letter criticizing President Obama for spending the holidays with his family in Hawaii (“Is Obama doing his job from Hawaii?” Jan. 1). I agree! Who does he think he is, going to warm Hawaii (where he grew up) for his vacation?! Camp David is so much more “fun” sounding, especially in winter. It must be even moreso to his wife and young daughters. It really makes me sick. Imagine, it’s Christmas morning, you’re opening presents with your family (or maybe sleeping in, since it’s only 7 a.m.)

Jackson Bell While voter turnout Tuesday seemed largely driven by the hotly contested presidential race, some Glendale residents were just as worked up about many of the state's ballot initiatives. Voters weighed in on 17 propositions ranging from allotting millions for stem cell research and loosening the tough three-strikes law, to adding those arrested for felonies to DNA databases and requiring small businesses to provide healthcare. Those interviewed by the News-Press were as split on their support of propositions as they were for Oval Office hopefuls President George W. Bush and Sen. John F. Kerry.

It's said that a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client. I've often said (perhaps in a Reel Critics review) that a writer who uses himself as an editor shoots himself in the book; and the writer who directs his own work has pulled the wool over his own eyes. Those axioms sum up my feelings for "Reign Over Me," a movie I wanted to love unequivocally, but couldn't. As much as I enjoyed writer and director Mike Binders' leisurely approach to exploring subjects and characters worth examining, I couldn't help noticing the wrinkles that might have been ironed out had Binders had someone else on the set as a critic.

Paul M. Anderson Well over an hour after John Dean finished speaking and started taking questions from the audience Wednesday the question finally surfaced. Who is Deep Throat? As a central figure in the Watergate scandal that brought down the Nixon Administration, Dean himself is obsessed with the question of who supplied Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein with so much invaluable information. He's even written a book on the subject.

Parental duties and a commitment to serve out his term on the Glendale Unified School District board convinced Greg Krikorian to wait for another time to run for the District 44 state Assembly seat held by Carol Liu, he announced Thursday. Krikorian is the father of five children, the youngest of which is 5 and will start playing T-ball this spring. "I am passionate about our country and community but far too many times politicians lose sight of what's important," said Krikorian, 42, who has served on the board since 2001.

Reading the Oct. 16 article "Warning signs within the numbers" left me angry with the City Council and the city manager. Who is guarding the hen house? Our city officials have a responsibility to safeguard our city's assets. Who else can do it? I am very upset that this kind of fraud was able to be perpetrated on our city without city officials auditing these projects to protect our city finances. The signs were there. So, what are they going to do to prevent this kind of thing from happening in the future?
