Sunday's Letters to the Editor

Ryan hasn't learned

EDITOR: Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan just doesn't get it, even after his Republican Party lost the November election. Speaking at the National Review Institute's conference on the future of conservatism, Ryan insisted that Republicans must reject President Barack Obama's attempts to move the country forward, presumably as a way of accusing him four years from now of not accomplishing anything ("Ryan: GOP must be united against Obama," Jan. 27).

The American people have had quite enough of this oppositional attitude. We want a House and Senate that work with the White House for the country, not against its president. This is a lesson Mitt Romney failed to learn in 2012, and it seems his running mate has not yet learned it as we begin 2013.

Unequal treatment

EDITOR: It's interesting (and telling) that the female members of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors want parity for our female youthful offenders, while the males, after "agonizing," all voted for fewer classes and less professional, cheaper counselors for females ("Vote delayed on Sierra Center," Wednesday). Discrimination is wrong. Period.
