Ed Royce doesn't fit in with today's Republican Party. Good riddance

To the editor: Dan Schnur makes it seem like the departure of Rep. Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) from Congress is a bad thing.

Plane skids off runway in Turkey, stops on slope a few feet from the sea

A commercial airplane that skidded off a runway after landing in northern Turkey dangled precariously off a muddy cliff with its nose only a few feet from the sea.
