Re Michael Ramirez's June 17 editorial cartoon (Commentary): In addition to taking the word "God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance, maybe we should take "indivisible" out as well. Tom Martin Los Angeles

I see Conrad also does not know the Pledge of Allegiance. This is understandable when his pledge seems to run: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And to the state of hypocrisy where I live; America wrong or very wrong, communists right or very right, with welfare poor and drugs in every neighborhood except mine. JAMES KNIZEK Santa Ana

On a day packed with fundraising events to refuel his campaign, Newt Gingrich insisted Monday that he would not drop out of the GOP presidential contest even though polls show he is not now winning the argument against Rick Santorum that he is the best conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. The former House speaker also appealed specifically to California conservatives, promising to make the state competitive in the fall, calling for the preservation of memorial crosses that came under fire for being on public land, knocking the teachers union in Los Angeles for defending incompetent teachers, saying he would rein in federal environmental officials, and pledging to take on the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which just ruled against the state's same-sex marriage initiative.

After reading the Sept. 16 letters to the editor, I wonder if, instead of deleting "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, it might be time to remove "indivisible" instead. MICHAEL DANIELS Studio City

An article I recently read made my blood boil! State Assemblyman Bill Morrow (R-Oceanside) has voiced the feeling of so many of us who, once again, are appalled by the attitude of a small number of today's young people. For the student government of Saddleback College to decide that the Pledge of Allegiance will not be said at the beginning of their meetings is unconscionable. We are privileged to live in the greatest country in the world. The very structure of our democracy gives us the opportunity to voice our opinions while still protecting the rights of all its people.
