We have the federal government. I read the lips of our leader, and he is a liar. Congress can't balance its own checkbooks. Last time anyone bothered to count, they had put us in the hole for a bit more than $300 billion. Then there's the state government. With all the lottery money, they've done a marvelous job of destroying whatever meager level of public education we had managed to obtain.

Convinced that he could not raise enough money to win the Republican nomination in the 69th Assembly District next week, candidate Martin Ageson dropped out of the race Tuesday and endorsed apparent front-runner Jim Morrissey.

The final crop of candidates filing for next year's elections in Orange County yielded a few surprises Friday amid a handful of competitive legislative races. The most interesting is the return of former Rep. Robert K. Dornan, a Republican who served 18 years in Congress until 1996. He paid his filing fee Wednesday to challenge Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) and turned in voter signatures late Friday, according to early postings on the county registrar's Web site.
