Dana Parsons recently wrote a column defining reasons not to support the boycott of Colorado's anti-gay law ("You Don't Have to Hate Gays to Keep Loving Colorado," Jan. 20). Frankly, I was disappointed by Mr. Parsons as he has a good reputation for supporting civil rights. Mr. Parsons seems to have adopted the philosophy that ignoring bigotry and hate will make it vanish. Would his new formula work to restore the broken and demolished body of the man recently "bashed" to near death in Laguna Beach?

The City Council held a special meeting this week to consider a temporary freeze on building permits, but decided against such action after being assured that the staff of the recently formed city is able to handle planning responsibilities assumed from the county last month. The meeting was requested by Councilman Paul M. Christiansen, who said there were "glaring failures" in planning procedures inherited from the county.

Two top city officials appointed on a temporary basis have resigned, meaning this recently formed city could soon be without a city manager, city clerk, city treasurer and community development director. Warren S. Benson, who held the interim posts of city manager, city clerk and city treasurer, and Alan Rubin, the interim community development director, both announced that they will leave their posts in May. Both men were appointed when the city was incorporated in December.
