Let us not be manipulated by fear

Why do they want us to feel fear and build walls between us? So that we’ll look to them to relieve the perceived danger through their pill, their services, removing their enemy, voting for their candidate. We are being manipulated for their gain, willingly yielding our intellect and power.

Why you shouldn’t feed the ducks

Despite signs that said don’t feed the ducks at Fresno’s Oso de Oro Park, families were tossing bread at the fowl. Did you know that bread-rich diets make for a perilous environment causing fowl to become ill and deformed?

Contradiction, thy name is mankind

In the midst of his don’t-hate-and-enjoy-the-beauty message, a recent letter writer managed to imply dislike of the police, and also to get in a nasty swipe at The Bee (“...what would you expect from this paper?”), presumably because The Bee publishes letters and commentary that offend the writer.
