Concerning “Pasadena plays defense on pollution,” (A1, Feb. 3): Within the 1960s, we lived close to Pastime Airport, the place we may see the flares from Pasadena. We used to chant, “Pasadena the place the air is greenah.” Buddies who lived there would retort, “it’s the colour and scent of cash!”

Progress is painful
Concerning “Biden’s drilling order could end up being ‘nail in coffin’ for oil,” (B1, Jan. 31): Sure, progress typically may be painful. Horse breeders, livery stables and buggy-makers have been up in arms when the arrival of the horseless carriage put them out of enterprise.

A medical large
Concerning “Doctor tested research barriers,” (A1, Feb. 3): Thanks for the article highlighting Dr. Emil Freireich’s extraordinary most cancers work. When all of the vacuous social media “influencers,” celebrities and politicians are swept apart, it’s good to be reminded there are folks like Freireich who’ve devoted themselves to creating the world a greater place. As he confirmed, it takes laborious work. These greats hardly ever make the headlines however their affect is worldwide. I all the time made it some extent to say, “Hello, Dr. Freireich,” every time I handed him on the skybridge at MD Anderson. I ponder what number of appreciated that white-coated gentleman with a walker as one of many world’s medical giants.

California vs. Texas
Concerning “Letter to my liberal friends: Forget California,” (A14, Feb. 3): Not like Bret Stephens, I don’t faux to know why the web motion of residents from California to Texas is at the moment constructive. However I take exception to his selective use of state rankings and crime statistics to elucidate it.
Within the 2019 US Information and World Stories’ state rankings, California was rated higher than Texas in six of eight classes, starting from well being care to schooling, and 19 locations above Texas within the general rating.
So, as folks transfer from California to Democratic cities in Texas, maybe it’s our cities’ reasonably liberal insurance policies — quite than the state’s far-right insurance policies — which are attracting them.
