Letters to the editor


I invite you to join me in restoring the joy and responsibility of belonging to a special, historic, and fiscally responsible community.

Thank you to all who took a chance in supporting and embracing my candidacy. Your waves, honks, smiles, sign-holding, and words of support fueled my determination during those long cold days on the sidewalk. To the young mother and daughter in the minivan who stopped to hand me a coffee, your beverage and act of kindness warmed me for days.

I will now step from those sidewalks and get down to business. As I do so, please know that I will be thinking of all of you and your families in every decision I make.

Your friend, neighbor, and councilor-at-large,

Mark Osborne


If only hunting humans were illegal

To the editor:

After years of study, Sen. Dianne Feinstein has identified the real cause of mass killings. Quoting Sen. Feinstein, “It’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.”

Apparently all we need is a law saying it is no longer legal to hunt humans using a large-capacity magazine. You can probably get bipartisan support for this law.

With this, Sen. Feinstein has outdone her last brilliant solution, “gun-free zones”, which ensured that mass killers would be safe for that critical 10 to 20 minutes they needed to achieve their dreams of fame.

I feel so much safer knowing that Sen. Feinstein is on the job. In her hands, all Americans will be as safe as the children in Newtown, Conn.
