Today's L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Ugly numbers for the GOP," Column, March 4

It appears that Skelton's critique of the California Republican Party applies nationally. As California and the nation have become the most diverse they have ever been, the GOP has become less diverse. Maybe the elephant symbol needs to be replaced by the more appropriate one of a middle-aged white evangelical male gun owner.

The GOP strategy against President Obama has always been to portray him as the "other." How are we to believe this GOP is capable of embracing diversity?
