OVER THE TOP Re: The Critical Line, “Mexicans Stay Out!” cartoon, June 8 In 1956 my parents, sister and brother immigrated legally from Jalisco, Mexico, directly to Santa Monica. Over the next decade my other brothers and I were all born in Santa Monica. We all went to local schools and grew up here. My parents worked hard and were soon the owners of a four-unit property on 17th Street. My mom still owns and lives on her property, where she has provided rental units to countless tenants for over five decades. My parents never “jumped over the wall”...

LITTLE CHOICE To Lance Sterling, CEO, The Rose: I live in Pasadena and I’ve been to quite a few concerts at The Rose. But I won’t be going to any more performances there if you allow Ted Nugent to perform on your stage as he’s scheduled to do on July 2.  I’ve encouraged others to boycott The Rose, too, unless you cancel Nugent’s concert. I’m encouraging people to forward this email to other people they know in the Pasadena and Los Angeles area. I assume you are aware that Nugent is a self-avowed homophobe, a racist, an anti-Semite, and...

HOW MANY MORE? How many people have to die before the LASD shows any amount of compassion in their release of inmates from their custody? The family and friends of Gerald Sakamoto have suffered a similar loss as the family and friends of Mitrice Richardson. Gerald Sakamoto went missing, was released with no regard for his life, and his naked body was discovered not too far from the station where he was released. The unfortunate truth is that lawsuits have to be filed to bring attention to the fact that policies need to be followed and/or changed to ensure...

WAY TOO LOUD To LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger: Last night Altadenans were able to hear the U2 concert at the Rose Bowl with enough volume that they could not enjoy dining outdoors or listening to television in their living rooms. Annoyingly enough, the noise was high but not clear enough to understand the words, but we did get a lot of bass, drum beats and guitar riffs, if somewhat distorted and echoed. This has happened every time Pasadena has, for its profit, used the Rose Bowl as a rock and roll venue, something it is not designed for....

JUSTICE IS SERVED Former LASD Sheriff Lee Baca was the head of the department that engaged in multiple acts of violation of law and policy as related to the case of Mitrice Richardson and I am sure many other cases of injustice that have been swept under the rug and unnoticed. While he is not directly going to jail for what he allowed to occur to Mitrice Richardson, the fact that justice has been served in this current legal situation brings about some faith in the justice system. My hope is that current Sheriff Jim McDonnell will take a...
