The article about the Claremont Colleges project "Citizens Jury" (Times, April 17) was a breath of fresh air in a smoggy political world. The quotes from the people involved were reflective of the dissatisfaction and anger of many of my friends over the elected officials and their inattention to matters affecting us all.
