CLASS-BASED SEGREGATION Fine piece, Mr. Hutchinson (“Truly Sick,” March 16). We cannot be reminded often enough that, in addition to Medicaid, it has been the Republican priority to either privatize or eliminate altogether Medicare, Social Security and public education since their inception. (Regarding public education, that goal is being realized in the form of tax revenue intended for public education increasingly being diverted to charter schools: outsourced, privatized, corporate entities, often religious, often with disproportionately excessive executive pay.) But my question is, how is Medicaid not institutionalized health care apartheid? Is there another developed nation on the planet that...

MORE SHARING NEEDED In response to Pastor Inman Moore, sir or ma’am your introductory paragraph indicates that you will be writing about issues of race, yet you do not identify yourself. As the reader reads further he or she recognizes that the writer appears to be “white” and has assumed the reader would have anticipated or assumed this.

A New Routine Terrific timing with the front page story on Women’s March Los Angeles. And what a march! Well over three times the size anyone expected. This hugely successful gathering was just the spark needed to ignite the activism needed to confront the times: cutbacks to health care, impositions on women’s rights and the president himself. And like clockwork, the movement for impeachment has begun. One sign I read at the march: 1) Wake up, 2) Coffee, 3) Resist, 4) Resist, 5) Resist, 6) Repeat. So, let’s wake up! ~  ANDY K. LIBERMAN, VIA EMAIL THANK YOU Thank...

GIVE PEACE A CHANCE Pelosi Democrats want war with Russia. Agent Orange Republicans want war with Iran. War contractors and shareholders want war with anyone and everyone. What about those who just want peace? ~  GRANT MARCUS VIA EMAIL SILENCING HUMANITY The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, as well as National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service, are at risk of being cut from our federal budget. When government officials — at the highest level to the local level — do not value the arts, they send a message to the masses...
