The universal basic income and universal single-payer health care would put everybody in the position I’m in. I am now convinced that these things are excellent ideas.

The biggest threat

EDITOR: The editorial cartoon in Wednesday’s paper asked a simple question: Which poses the biggest danger to California in 2018? None of the four suggested answers are correct. The one that was left out, and the most obvious, is the press. It poses the most danger to California and America. But luckily Donald Trump is exposing the media for the liars they are.

Trashy roads

EDITOR: There was an article written some years ago titled “The Broken Window Theory of Urban Decay,” which posited that as we allow our property, urban downtowns, etc. to deteriorate with forgotten buildings, graffiti and filth, it gives permission for further decay, the implication being that if no one cares, why should I?

As I ride the bike trail along Highway 12 out of Sebastopol each morning, I am saddened at the amount of trash alongside the road, and I wonder what it takes to get a crew out periodically to clean things up. I made numerous calls to Caltrans last year and was assured action would be taken. Nothing has been done. If it is a funding issue, I would be glad to join a crew, for free, to help get it done.

How we present ourselves to the world says a lot about us. Have a look around your environment, and ask yourself if it reflects your values.
