Yes to these? Then no to USA

About the Syrian refugees: I am less concerned about terrorists hiding among them as I want to be reassured that they fit in with the American way of religious tolerance, as in freedom of religion and freedom from religion. I would ask a potential immigrant the following: Do you agree that apostasy and/or blasphemy should […]

Don’t destroy our nation’s values

In truth, people of all nations face crucial threats to their lives, by developments of the past several decades. I believe if the terrorists’ crusades to destroy life in developed (read “civilized”) populations continue as in recent years, we face a life of barbaric magnitude of Stone Age society within an electronic-era technological world, literally capable […]

Spread thin over the holidays

By Amy Tucci From finding the perfect gifts to assembling bikes at midnight, the holiday season can be particularly stressful for parents with children of all ages. For parents caring for both children and their aging parents, the holidays can be downright overwhelming. So many people today face this added responsibility that they have been […]

Quick response from mayor

We are writing to thank Mayor Dan Wolk for helping to make our neighborhood safer for the kids who live here. We live in a cul-de-sac with 19 kids who constantly had cars racing down it trying to find a short-cut to the main road. Our dad sent an email to Mayor Wolk asking for help […]

I’ll give thanks for more lights

Yikes! I read in The Enterprise that there was an attempted armed robbery at the McDonald’s in South Davis early Monday morning. Were the robbers emboldened by the fact that the city of Davis street light in front of the McDonald’s has been burned out for months? And it sure seems like we are seeing […]

Terror’s ongoing link to Islam

Apparently Secretary of State John Kerry is not entirely troubled by the Charlie Hebdo murders because he stated, “There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of — not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, OK, they’re really angry because of this […]

Froma Harrop: Energy beggars no more, we can be choosy

The Obama administration has finally passed judgment on the Keystone XL pipeline, and it’s a thumbs-down. The environmental arguments against it have always been impeccable. But it took America’s turn toward energy independence to cut down the economic case for it. Americans still need oil, but we can choose to reject the dirtiest kind. A […]

A mother-daughter bond bridges cultures, ocean

By Gloria St. John I never knew I had a daughter in China until Sherry became my friend last year through the International Friendship Program, administered by International House Davis and UC Davis’ Services to International Students and Scholars. As someone new to Davis, I did not know many people. I considered the International Friendship […]

We’re short on real democracy

I am writing this with reference to the article in The Davis Enterprise on Sunday, Nov. 8, regarding trends in voting patterns in the United States. Do we have a real democracy?
