Your Turn: Jan. 28

January 27, 2019

Foul or no foul?I’m tired of all the complaints about a missed call in the Rams vs. Saints game. Get over it! There are missed calls in every NFL game.In the same game, there were at least three that should’ve been called against the Saints. One was a face mask foul. It was obvious that home-court advantage was taking place. That face mask foul was on the quarterback, Jared Goff. If that happened to Drew Brees, they would still be crying foul.All those officials wanted the Saints to win except one.L. John GarciaTell it like it isPardon me, but I find Julián Castro too mild-mannered to compete with others running for president. He will not make a dent if he just says, “We will bring everyone together” — runners in the past have said that.Castro needs to hit the jugular vein, tell it like it is, start calling the present administration bigoted and biased, and also bring out how Donald Trump won the election by belittling Hispanics, blacks and others. It seems like no one dares to shoot from the hip. No, Mr. Castro, you need to put on a different mask.Leo ReyesStill need a wall?Re: “In perspective,” Your Turn, Wednesday:OK, let’s put this border fence in layman’s terms.Say you have a $44,070 home budget, and you can build a privacy fence for $57. But if you also have a river surrounding your property, three law officers, five border agents, five National Guardsmen, five active-duty troops, a drone and a helicopter watching the property, would you still need a $57 wall that any able-bodied person could jump over?Think about it.Manuel P.
