Government has intruded enough

I read with dismay Dan Kimber's column supporting a ban on plastic bags ("Education Matters: Antonovich's arguments are short-sighted," Nov. 26).

I am disappointed only one of the five county supervisors resisted the left's relentless interference with our lives. A government that can decide whether you can smoke in your own apartment, what days you can water your plants, and the material your grocer bags your purchases in can eventually determine every other aspect of our lives.

It is amazing to me that a people so blessed with liberty in our founding and history would so easily cede their freedoms to the whims of the media and political elite. It is time that we, like Los Angeles County Mike Antonovich, tell our government no. Don't tread on me.
