THUMBS-UP

Thumbs-up to Daniel Villareal for returning my son Gary Walters' dog tags. Daniel found them in the street and took the time to look for him. It's close to the anniversary of my son's death, so it meant a lot to me. He is a special person. Thank you!

Margaret, Victoria

THUMBS-DOWN

Thumbs-down to the Obama administration, allowing their friends with the big oil companies to more than triple the price of gasoline after being successfully elected. Pay back time?
