Thank you for your coverage of the space shuttle Endeavour's final journey. The photos were inspiring, and you can see that the shuttle is a bit scarred from its travels but handsome just the same. She deserves the attention after her service to our country.
Thanks to Los Angeles for providing a home for this veteran.
I was among the thousands who attended the Endeavour ceremony at the Forum in Inglewood, and was at the corner of Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards to witness this historic mission. I celebrated with the throngs representing the diverse Inglewood and South Los Angeles communities excitedly anticipating Endeavour's arrival.
With this exhilarating backdrop, it is disappointing that The Times displayed on Sunday's front page the photo of boys playing basketball as the shuttle passed. As Endeavour took its final journey to the California Science Center, why was it and its community's grateful admirers not the cover picture?
