Jabs at float and committee offensive Thank you Tim Doyle for the publicity ("There's room to float some better ideas," Wednesday). Welcome to "Dogpatch." Maybe you should move out of Glendale to La Cañada-Flintridge, so you can tell your fancy Westside friends that you, too, live in a fancy community. Be sure to also point out that the La Cañada Flintridge 2006 float entry in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade was "The Great Howldini," a magical dog pulling a goofy rabbit out of a hat with a snake performing the cups and balls.

People that attend the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade are not the only ones who appreciate and enjoy the Stealth bomber fly-over (“There is a time and place for everything,” Jan. 11). My family and I look forward to going outside to search the sky for the Stealth bomber before the parade. We have the pleasure of seeing the awesome sight when it goes over our home on its way to the parade. Thousands of us who are seniors, or who are unable to attend the parade, enjoy watching the plane with heartfelt pride and admiration for a country able to keep us safe with such an aircraft as beautiful as the Stealth bomber.
