    Disassociate with mayor

    If Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin finds it impolitic to associate herself with Fresno, we should and must "unpolitic" her as Fresno mayor. The sooner, the better. We apparently have no reason to worry that she might win election to state office.

    Vote on rail again

    Kelsey Prince of Fresno writes in a Sept. 13 letter that if a majority is for high-speed rail, that we should stop wasting money on the lawsuits and court dates attempting to delay its construction.
