Janet Napolitano. Whose money is she giving away to illegal students at UC California? Hers, or ours? If it’s ours, let’s deduct it from Mexico’s foreign aid, along with the medical expenses we incur. Either way, she needs to put in 80 percent of her own money first.

Your column was right on about the Fresno River clutter. Just happened in Chowchilla a few years ago. California has inadequate storage and drainage. Ask Costa about that. Twenty-five years ago he said we don’t need dams. We need water banks. Looks like he is on the same track as the train.

To clean the Fresno River, we should require welfare people to clean from bridge to bridge. Don’t feed them for three or four days, and then have a pot of beans and cornbread under the bridge. They get done, then they can eat. Next day, beans are under the next bridge.

If Gloria makes the beans and cornbread, I’ll help clean too!
