I'm really disappointed that "Bustamante Makes Most of Post in Davis' 
Shadow" (Oct. 16), about the lieutenant governor's race, omitted any 
serious mention of the excellent Green candidate, Donna Warren. You missed 
your opportunity to raise issues that only Warren is talking about -- like 
our failed war on drugs or the fact that California now has more black men 
in jail than in college (thanks to the discriminatorily applied 
three-strikes law). What did we get instead? A puff piece on the major 
candidates' "personalities" and a slanted poll that deliberately omitted 
all third-party candidates. Talk about dropping the ball!
