BILLIONAIRE CHRISTIANS This is a Christian nation, billionaire Christians like to say We have the best holy book and Jesus taught us how to pray But I’d like to know what billionaire Christians truly do believe, Because they seem to have a different Bible from the one I like to read Who knows if they have Christian faith, because faith is hard to see? And heavenly faith needs earthly acts to ground it in reality Their money could be used to rebuild Flint and feed our hungry kids, But they hoard it off and in Geneva, wherever it can...

HAD TO BE TOLD Although I have not yet read her book, I am dismayed by all of the negativity directed at Hillary Rodham Clinton. She’s right about so much of what I’ve heard through news clips. We are living through the terror of Trump because of the obstructions that she cites. It had to be told. ~  CAROL SPECTOR VIA INTERNET   FAILING GRADES Traditionally, there was a close relationship between Pasadena’s prominent African-American community and our local community college, Pasadena City College.

THE FRENCH MISTAKE I read your restaurant reviews whenever they appear in the Pasadena Weekly. I like them! I forget whether or not I’ve written to you before, but I wanted to write to you about a little thing in your review of the Glendale Shaker’s.

Nice renovations and new additions to McKinley. Beautiful new gyms at McKinley and Washington for the schools and the community to use.  A wonderful new gym at Marshall. And what was the headline in the Pasadena Star News on Sept. 12, courteous of an overzealous Citizens Oversight Committee and a reporter who has consistently written the most critical articles she could write about the PUSD?...

FREE SPEECH? This attack on conservatives by Christopher Judges of Ventura is the same thing the conservatives say of the crazy left. Very biased, “If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem” mentality. “If you voted for Trump you are a racist.” Then there’s the moral high ground: “Don’’t you care?” What if I care differently? And the biased, lying media fanning the flames of the masses. Don’t fall for this. Most of the conservatives I know have stopped watching the biased, lying “news.” Some people cannot speak out for fear of ridicule, harassment, intimidation...
