I guess I am getting old. Well, actually I know I am getting old but I guess I am getting less tolerant of stuff that used to strike me as OK but no longer does. I used to think, being a product of the Let-It-All-Hang-Out generation, that it was perfectly acceptable, nay, better in all respects, to say whatever was on your mind. Total honesty would improve the world. That it was less what you said, and more what your intention was, that mattered. I still make those mistakes myself but I usually get a frisson of “Oops — I should not have said that.

Letters to the Editor Republicans not fiscally responsible Some historical perspective needs to be added to the debate over whether to elect McCain or Obama to the presidency: Americans should not forget the insanely unregulated capitalism of the Reagan era, the reduced taxes and the mortgage-and-spend financial policy that propelled our economy into the savings and loan meltdown and the (until now) biggest national debt ever. We should not forget that in the late 1980s, McCain co-sponsored a resolution to delay new regulations designed to curb risky investments by thrifts such as Lincoln Savings and Loan, which later failed spectacularly at great expense to taxpayers.

Senator John McCain’s surprise announcement last week of Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin as his choice for running mate in the presidential election met with mixed reaction from local political activists. “I feel very confident she will make an excellent vice president,” said Al Restivo, chairman of La Cañada Flintridge Republican Club. “She is a maverick like McCain.” Restivo is the San Gabriel Regional Chairman for the McCain campaign. He previously supported one-time candidateRudy Giuliani for president, but has since thrown his support to McCain.

After a photographer caught him playing iPhone poker during a Senate committee hearing on Syria, Sen John McCain (R-Arizona) tried to pass the incident off as a joke. “Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing - Worst of all I lost!” tweeted McCain. The good news is that McCain played the game in the daytime. Here in the 91011, we can relate because far too many of us have disrupted our sleep patterns with a quick game of Spider Solitaire at night. On the other hand, he is a senator.
