    ROBERT PRICE: Congressman? Nah, Valadao says he's an ordinary farmer

    SOUND OFF: Good news, bad news, even on religious holidays

    Reader: On Easter Sunday, of all days of the year, you decide to publish the "kill" number of animals in the shelter in the last year. Can you not do this on a day where a majority of religions spend the day rejoicing and not put this on...

    SOUND OFF: Enough lies! Sic BLM on border and leave rancher alone

    SOUND OFF: Even Tulsa shares our eco-wacko tendencies

    Reader: Wow-ee! What a load of eco-wacko baloney on the front page of the Sunday (April 6) paper -- "Study: Spikes in toxicity rarely recorded." The Californian, in sympathy with ultra-left activists, hits us with a scare-tactic assault on...

    SOUND OFF: Yep, we would have put ACA's failure on page 1

    Reader: I'm real concerned that you buried the Affordable Care Act on page 23 ("More than 7 million enroll under Affordable Care Act," April 2) and you have the front page for GM ("GM: We've changed") and I was wondering which one had more...

    SOUND OFF: About that black cat pictured at the crime scene

    Reader: Terrible shooting death, page three ("Man dies in shooting with sheriff's deputies in Oildale," March 28), and a photo of a black cat crossing the path. Hmm. That aside -- by the way, Casey Christie photos are a wonderful asset to...
