Now, I love animals, but no one has mentioned the real tragedy here: the hundreds of people who are now unemployed.
Do the deaths of three animals trump the needs of several hundred humans?
In the current economy, a show like "Luck" brings millions into local coffers and provides work for hundreds of L.A.-based people.
If the ratings had been higher, "Luck" would not have been canceled, no matter what. All one needs to do is see the comments on Facebook to know that those of us who did watch found it to be one of the finest dramas to date.
Maybe now that it's gotten publicity, the last show may bring in enough viewers to prompt a reconsideration of the decision.
Phishing for some solutions
Re "It can be tough spotting a Web phisher's bait," March 16
David Lazarus is right to alert us to the problem of phishing. When I sense a phishing expedition, I try to find a site I can direct it to for research into possible abuse.
It would help us all if there were one central site where we could report phishing. We need a base to fight this type of invasion, and the sooner the better.

How many email messages does the average person send in a day? Would it be worth it to pay a penny per each message sent? Would such a plan deter the spammers?
I receive hundreds of unsolicited emails each day, including both legitimate ads and spam. Imagine the amount of time we could save if we didn't have so much junk mail. Would you pay a penny per message sent if it meant the spammers could no longer afford to send millions of emails to us all?
I think the best advice is, instead of clicking on the link in the email, just open your browser and type in the address yourself. That way you don't have to carefully examine the website to make sure you haven't been phished.
