Letters: Seat removal an overreach

“Injury concerns prompt removal of 1,400 bus seats,” The City, Wednesday

Seat removal an overreach

/

Your story about the seats being removed by MUNI left me with a bitter, angry aftertaste.

/

My understanding is that any major changes must or at least should be brought before the public and debated.

/

Since there have been no reports of accidents regarding these seats on MUNI, the chairs should be made useful again, and the officials who rendered them useless should be disciplined or worse.

Chains need to heed Prop. 2

I, along with many other Californians, am demanding that our state’s top grocery chains like Trader Joe’s and Safeway fulfill their obligation to stock only cage-free eggs by January 1st.

/

The citizens of our state overwhelmingly voted to ban the egg industry’s horrific practice of locking hens in metal cages so small they can’t extend their wings. In these cages, the birds are denied all natural behaviors like perching and dust-bathing. Unfortunately the egg industry has seemed more interested in suing our state over this commonsense law that in doing the right thing for animals.

/

The grocery chains need to make sure the egg companies convert to 100 percent cage-free by New Year’s Day.

Stand up to hack threats

It is fun to giggle about Sony execs making snarky remarks about stars and politicians. It is not fun when a foreign power is able to blackmail a company and force them to withhold releasing a movie. If we run now they will keep chasing us.

/

If these people are successful with Sony what or who will be next?
