    Cecil Coey: Write tickets, raise more money

    Once I watched a police car sitting about 10 feet in front of a stop sign for about 10 minutes doing what? While he or she was sitting there I counted 25 vehicles running the stop sign.

    Chris Henry: Death penalty fair and just

    We keep hearing many disparaging stories about the death penalty, including the front page article ( “Execution lasts 2 hours in Arizona,” July 24) on Joseph Wood. By placing the story where it was, it tells us the media is pushing this very liberal idea of eliminating the death penalty...

    Cannon Michael: Water bond should be top priority

    With California continuing to endure three straight years of drought with no end in sight, we must have a new water bond that provides us a safe and reliable water supply.

    Lillian Rivera: Leave killers off the front page

    Regarding “Execution lasts 2 hours in Arizona” (Page A1, July 24): How dare you waste the front page with the boo-hoo story of a killer’s suffering! When executed, they should die the way they murdered their victims; then maybe a few hours of gasping would seem more pleasurable...

    Judy Kropp: Do liberals oppose public safety?

    Thank you for continuing to report on laws regarding the mentally ill. In “A breakthrough in helping the mentally ill” (Opinions, July 13) you gave some background on Laura’s Law, which San Francisco will be voting on soon. I hope our county will consider adopting this law also...

    Steve Knell: Bee’s story lacked context on pumping data

    Half a story does not make the whole story, and that’s exactly what The Bee conveyed last Sunday (“Pumping at record levels,” Page A1). In a fair and unbiased comparison, the reporter would compare “drought years” to “drought years.” Had she done ...
