It's unfortunate that just because some narrow-minded readers don't agree with Palin's views, they have to complain to the paper for covering a story about a local who made a political documentary. Where is that open-minded spirit to which liberals lay claim?
Surely no one would complain if it were another Al Gore documentary. But then again, that's tolerance when you bat for the left.
Newport mayor should resign
Re. "Henn votes on Lido, despite financial ties" (Aug. 13): I was shocked to read that our mayor, Mike Henn, is receiving $100,000 a year in consulting fees from the owner of Via Lido Drugs. Mayor Henn should resign and leave his position for someone who is capable of doing the job without ties to special interests.
Don't mix business, politics
When residents or council members suggested they slow down or focus on other struggling parts of town, Henn insisted that Lido Village remain the top priority. It is more clear who the mayor actually represents.
"It's good for all the residents of Newport Beach," Mayor Henn said.
What the mayor means is, "It's good for me and my business associates, current and former."
