Big Brother

Regarding last week’s article about the Three Springs HOA contemplating cameras, I’m convinced we’re living in a T. Coraghessan Boyle novel. It’s as though the idea was lifted right out of his book “Tortilla Curtain.” Security is as important to me as the next person, but the level of paranoia and desire to control everyone and everything occurring in the […]

Don’t shame the dog owner

Regarding last week’s letter about the lady who left her dog in the car and was called out publicly in a movie theater, the word “overreaction” is probably an understatement. Dog advocates have really gone over the top, even when it concerns other people’s dogs. Most of us really go out of our way for our pets, even when making […]
