I hasten to add my congrats to you for getting "Be Prepared: Posse Out to 'Save' Scouts" safely past every censor and into print. It's long overdue. For too long, we've slipped along thoughtlessly letting total irresponsibles make up our media and our minds on matters having to do with religion. Simple rational fact goes out the window as irrelevant in this special case. Now if that lawyer who defends kids from refusing to mumble "God" in the Pledge is looking for the next challenge, I suggest "In God We Trust" on our money.

Regarding Antonio Asasta Sweet's diatribe, (Letters, Feb. 6): He writes that Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) is a racist and is dehumanizing and criminalizing a whole population! What tommyrot. Rohrabacher has never referred to American citizens (as Acosta wrote he became) in his efforts for justice, only to illegal immigrants in this country. Acosta Sweet is the one who has his facts incorrect. Congrats, Acosta Sweet, on being a wage-earner, professional and "educated."
