Editor: If Amy Coney Barrett means what she said, she should resign from the Supreme Court. Justice Barrett said justices should be “hyper-vigilant to make sure they’re not letting personal biases creep into their decisions.” The Supreme Court’s five Republican justices, in the dark of night, decided to uphold a flagrantly unconstitutional assault on women’s […]
Editor: Unless there are immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions of all greenhouse gases, limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees will be impossible. Are we capable of acting? Probably not. Are we stuck with our traditional “reactive mode”? Change is difficult; however; stupid, irrational thinking will be our doom. This should not be a divisive, partisan […]
Editor: This letter is a reaction to Ellen Snortland’s column in Pasadena Weekly. My feeling about these flights is that they are simply ego trips. These men have the money, and they choose to spend it on a meaningless glory trip. The U.S. and Soviet Union space programs starting in the 1950s were creating and […]
Editor: In 1765 Voltaire warned that “those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” We already have seen such atrocities given birth by the falsehoods of political misinformation manifested by the acts that led to the Oklahoma City bombing and that encouraged the participants in the Jan. 6 attack on our […]

Editor: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) threatened, “Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin to imagine what a completely scorched Earth Senate would look like.” Without the filibuster, he predicted the Senate would be “a 100-car pile-up where nothing moves.” After McConnell’s efforts to obstruct any and all legislation from passing the U.S. […]

Editor: A violent, armed mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building incited by an unhinged, unmoored mentally ill man. The astonishing turn of events came when President Trump exhorted his followers, white supremacists, QAnon supporters, the Proud Boys and others to protest the congressional certification at the Capitol. These unpatriotic misfits must be […]
By Melissa Michelson A special city council meeting will be held Jan. 27 to deliberate The Villages, one of Alhambra’s largest and most controversial developments to date.

Thankful for Global Child Thrive Act Editor: As a founding member of the San Gabriel Valley chapter of Catholic Relief Services, I want to thank Sen. Diane Feinstein and Rep.
