Paul Conrad's July 15 cartoon captioned, "National heroes," depicting the images of North, Bernhard Goetz, Tammy and Jim Bakker carved into Mount Rushmore is truly outrageous. However clumsy and flawed North's activities might have been, they were performed in order to free American hostages and to try to halt a Soviet encroachment on this continent. How these motives can be equated with the actions of a New York subway vigilante and a pair of venal religious charlatans is beyond my power to understand.

The secret to a healthy, happy life may be found at an art gallery, movie theater or concert hall. (It might even be in church, a baseball stadium or gym.) At least if you live in Norway. A study of more than 50,000 Norwegian men and women found that those involved in cultural activities -- either “receptive” activities like attending a concert or a baseball game or “creative” ones like playing in a band or working out -- were more likely to be satisfied with their lives and to say they were in good health.

Elderly people say they feel much less tired than teenagers and younger adults, according to a surprising new study that tracked how nearly 13,000 Americans rated their exhaustion. The results counter earlier studies and defy stereotypes of older people as weak and tired, said Laura Kudrna, a researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science. What's even more surprising, she said, is that the unexpected results can't be explained away by elderly people sleeping longer or doing fewer activities they find tiring.

Regarding "Scientists Have a Good Feeling About Exercise" (May 12), the writer talked about the benefits that exercise can have on helping people deal with depression. The most important thing is that the person doing these activities finds them to be enjoyable. The person should not be doing such activities out of obligation to the doctor who may be prescribing this method of treatment. James Miyasato Santa Barbara
