In response to Martin Sheen’s letter in The Malibu Times [Dec. 13]:
We Malibuites have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes and different dreams. The United States Constitution gives every citizen in Malibu the inalienable right to make a damn fool of themselves and Malibuites have seen a kismet of damn foolishness lately. As citizens of this democracy we are the rulers and the ruled, the lawgivers and the law abiding. The taste of democracy becomes a bitter taste when the fullness of democracy is denied to any citizen of our community including the Malibu Bay Company and Mr. Edward Niles.
