Let anyone from any religion pray in public and that will make it fair.
I'm more uncomfortable with the fact that local politicians think they need divine assistance.

Quality of life is declining, ja?

Ojai

Rick Bisaccia

I read your interesting commentary “Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” (Dec. 13) recently.

Indeed, there is a word in the English language for one who loves all things German. That would be a Germanophile. There are also Francophiles, Chinophiles, etc., etc.

Amazing that my high school in Ojai used to have a full four years of French and German when I went; now it’s only Spanish. Another example of how the quality of life gets worse.

Thanks for defending the teaching of German. Herzliche grussen,
