Freeway fire will
force changes in L.A.

The I-10 fire and shutdown in Los Angeles reminds me of the I-80/880/580 maze fire on April 29, 2007, when a gas tanker fire collapsed two bridges. Emeryville Fire was first-in at 3:46 a.m. All fires look larger at night; from the Peninsula, the maze looked to have been nuked. Gov. Schwarzenegger declared an emergency and repairs were completed in under three weeks. Shows what happens when the government gets moving and opens the checkbook — wide.

Now about the I-10 fire. No one wants to be politically incorrect to call it plainly: arson started in the homeless camp below the freeway. If the fire hasn’t already moved the campers, the repair contractor surely will. With all deliberate speed.

I get the feeling the advocates for the “unhoused” won’t be standing in the way this time. Nor will any judge. That, too, would be most politically incorrect.

Newsom spoke of “renewing our friendship and re-engaging [on] foundational and fundamental issues that will determine our collective faith in the future.”

Does this express the desires of California’s Chinese community?

The piece on inflation, by George Avalos, pointed out the results of another failed Democratic administration. Besides their penchant for printing and spending our money, the Democratic Party policies of anti-agriculture, anti-fossil fuels, anti-transportation and pro-green boondoggles have caused the inflation disaster.

The cost of goods and services jumped wildly as soon as Joe Biden took office. The article’s headline suggests a positive spin, but the reality is that the damage has been done. The “cooling” to which anyone can point is merely a slight decrease in the rampant increase in the rate of inflation. The people that are hurt most are the lower and …read more
