All California needs at this time of financial distress is for more people to believe the muddled gibberish put forth in the Opinion page article on Zoe Baird and her nanny. According to the author, illegal aliens are creating vast wealth for our nation and receiving nothing but abuse in return. This vast wealth has destroyed California's educational system, closed our libraries, shut down our parks, decimated our police establishment, and is raising our taxes.
California is fast becoming a poor third-world nation due to the burdens involved in accommodating illegal immigrants. The demographic trends make it questionable whether California will even be a part of the United States a decade from now. Let's get rid of that wide open melting-pot idea while there is still something to save. R. D. Westfal, Columbia, Calif.
