The Los Angeles Rams are really a big deal for football fans like my wife and I. We watch all of their games and see them win against Loins live at the SoFi stadium. We met in Baltimore when she decided to go with a friend and stopped by the restaurant I was running for football legend Johnny Unitas. Three weeks later, in September 1968, we took the bus leaving the restaurant and I was in my first game against the San Francisco 49ers. We had our ups and downs like losing to the Jets later that year and then coming back by beating Dallas in 1971. When we moved to Fullerton in 1978, we won season tickets to the Rams and attend games in Anaheim. Crushed by the Rams moved to St. Louis, we’re glad we have a local team back in our area.

Powers of Vice President
Re “The art of the deal is set to make clear the power of the veep” (February 1):
The editorial goes on to explain the hypothesis that the 2020 election is completely fair and square. You also claim dozens of election lawsuits have been adjudicated completely, you call it “handled and dismissed”, but many have been denied for “standing” or some other unclear reason. is different. If that election was so pure, why are the Democrats so determined to change the voting laws altogether? Even willing to destroy age-old film to do so. What Congress should do is organize a voting committee to investigate all the claims and irregularities, if they find nothing, then Trump will egg on the face, officially and on record forever. However, if they uncover corruption and nefariousness, many elected officials and news outlets will be revealed to be less trustworthy. Either way, the voting can at least appear to be complete; right now it doesn’t.

Who decides “what are the anti-vaxx lies?”
Re “Calling for online anti-vaxx lies” (January 30):
This reader wanted to ask Larry Wilson, Neil Young and other so-called “anti-vaxx anti-lie” experts to please show me what their medical/scientific degrees qualify them for consideration. this topic. Wilson considers anyone who disagrees with his opinion to be insane. They are idiots “with crazy pseudo-scientific notions who spread murderous misinformation,” such as the guests who appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast. The old, the young who crossed the hill wanted Spotify to remove his songs from their platform. Wilson, naturally, cheers for that decision. Remember that this is the same Neil Young who spread the misinformation that genetically modified crops (GMOs) caused terrible diseases. He also once made the false story that anyone can get AIDS at the grocery store. And this is the man we must trust when it comes to misinformation? I say there is no loss for Spotify. And Wilson can continue to enjoy Young’s music on his 8-track tape player.

Compare our southern border with the Ukrainian border
I am amazed at the number of readers who write letters and try to compare apples to oranges and it seems to make sense to them. Yes, we have a problem on our southern border with constant undocumented crossing but, how can anyone compare that to what is happening on the Ukrainian border that makes I escape. The Ukrainian people have more than 100,000 Russian troops on their border backed by tanks, missile launchers and fighter jets ready to take over their entire country. Our southern border is just that; problem. Ukraine is facing a war just waiting to happen. There is no actual comparison.

Vacancies of the Supreme Court
The candidate, now president, Biden, said: “If there is a loophole, I will appoint a black woman.” Of course it got his vote from the Black community but how can this be acceptable when degree should be the deciding factor rather than race? Do we have to exclude qualified Asians, Native Americans, Hispanics? Democrats are notorious for accusing others of racism and this is hypocrisy at best.
