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...Read More

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...Read More
VOTE FOR WILSON I’m committed to Pasadena’s future, and I want to say that Andy Wilson has my strong support for City Council in the March 7 election. I have known Andy for 20 years.

In a few short years, he’s done remarkable work in helping transform Pasadena into a growing center for high-technology....Read More
DICK CHENEY? Not long ago I wrote in praise of one of Sorenson’s cartoons. This time I am not so impressed. “The Backwards BS Detector” is unfunny because the “Russians are Coming” conspiracy theory is every bit as bogus as the others cited but comes with much graver real-world consequences. Perhaps the typical Pasadena Weekly reader grew up in an era when no one took the time to consider what nuclear war would actually mean for humanity. The other thing which has puzzled me for some time now is how the people in the Obama wing of the Democratic...Read More
A CRIME I feel very sad about the circumstances these days involving the treatment of Muslims in America, and concerning the movement of Muslims coming and going to and from America. I live in Pasadena. Residing in Pasadena is a small number of Muslims. Indeed, we have a Muslim school within our city limits. Nationwide, we have 3½ million Muslims. By and large, both as citizens and visitors, they are an important part of our freedom-loving society. President Donald Trump’s family tree in America is very limited. His grandfather was born in Germany. There was a time when Germans...Read More
