Letters to the Editor, May 11 - 14

TV shows and video games that glorify bullying and violence seem to be the norm in our entertainment. Some of the more sophisticated shows even glorify organizations that wallow in violence, assassinations and disinformation campaigns. Such entertainment tends to normalize anti-social behavior.

While I agree with most of Rep. Thompson’s positions, I do not agree with his judgment on said cover. I respect his right to own guns but differ greatly in flaunting them on the cover of a magazine. What does this say to our young people? Students? The public? If a picture is worth a thousand words, this photo certainly sends the wrong message, and the magazine editors should have known better, too.

Earth, wind and fire

EDITOR: PG&E has been placing full page ads in the Sunday papers explaining all of the measures they are taking to prevent future fire events due to wind-driven flames. The force of the winds evidently cause aerial wires to flail around and transformers to arc and start nearby fires.

They, however, have not addressed their plan to prevent their equipment from causing a similar result in case of a moderate or major earthquake. Aerial electrical systems are subject to displacement and subsequent fire whether it is caused by wind, earthquake or a traffic accident.

Electric pole line systems were a practical means of furnishing power back in Edison’s day. Today we need a secure, redundant and fire-safe method of delivering power. The technology has existed for decades to solve this problem. Just move their facilities underground. We do it in downtown Sonoma and certain other areas. Why not everywhere else?
