Re "Her Latest Creation: a Union," Jan. 27: Because the exploitation of adjunct faculty hurts students, schools, communities and part- and full-time faculty, I hope that all of these will work together to end it. But Linda Cushing and others have shown that even without help, adjunct instructors can determine their future if they manage, despite institutional obstacles, to unite. I applaud the growing number of adjunct faculty who have done so, and I urge the rest to make organizing a priority.

There is an intelligent solution to the teaching assistants' complaints at the University of California: adjunct faculty. We hold PhDs, we are not apprentices, we are experienced and flexible. We are many; many the products of the UC system, especially the humanities and social sciences. And we earn about $18,000 a year, about what UC spends on TAs. THURBER D.

"Stealth Lobby Drives Fuel Additive War" (June 16) mischaracterizes my commitment to protecting the health of the unsuspecting public from the dangers of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE). A jury found that Mobil Oil Corp. wrongfully dismissed me in a groundbreaking whistle-blowing case when I disclosed that Mobil was marketing gasoline that contained illegally and dangerously high quantities of benzene in Japan. The appellate court upheld the jury decision against Mobil, which awarded me large compensatory and punitive damages.

Parents and PTA members who feel that children may be suffering in the cross-fire between labor and management are right. I am certain that the loss of a holiday music program presents a minor hardship for some students, but real, enduring hardships are placed on teachers everyday: Teachers don't have enough materials for a class set, there is a constant threat of gang violence, and budget cuts have increased the student-teacher ratio, making it...

"I sound silly," said Ray Bolger, demonstrating an infectious giggle, one of the several laughs he uses to promote hilarity at Saint John's Hospital and Health Center. "But that's all right.

The Whitney Museum of American Art has unveiled a design by architect Renzo Piano for a satellite museum in lower Manhattan. The museum's bold, asymmetrical design will provide 50,000 square feet of gallery space over six floors, compared with 32,000 square feet at its uptown New York location. It will allow the Whitney to show more of its 20th- and 21st-century collection and offer more temporary exhibitions. Construction is slated to begin in spring 2009 and be completed in late 2012.

The merchants at the Sonora Market are doing a brisk business in plastic pumpkins, wizard costumes and devil's pitchforks. Eerie music blares from the loudspeakers: It's the Halloween rush. "I want my Halloween!" Mexican children will shout this week, though not necessarily the same night as kids north of the border. "Quiero mi Halloween," they will say, because there is no commonly used translation of "Trick or treat!"

Time off? What's that?

Jette, who teaches early American history, is a member of a growing army of part-time professors at the nation's universities.

For more than 50 years, the communists and former communists of Hollywood have written the script of the past, telling the story of the blacklist in memoirs and histories, movies and documentaries in which they depict themselves as noble martyrs and champions of democracy. It is time, finally, to put an end to the glorification of this unhappy period and take a cleareyed look at the Hollywood Ten, the blacklist and the movie industry Reds who wielded such influence in the 1930s and 1940s.

Near the Lycee Charles de Gaulle, Loic and his pals fire up Gauloise cigarettes, sip thimbles of jet-black coffee and argue about the day's headlines in Le Monde, happy in their preferred suburb of Paris: London. A morning's train ride away, across the Channel, English kids knock back pints of bitters and debate the merits of Liverpool's soccer team at the Frog & Princess Pub in Saint-Germain-des-Pres.

How bold of these UCLA Bruins, announcing their invasion plans well in advance to the entire world. The when. The where. Today. Here. UCLA comes to Robertson Stadium to conquer, of that there is no secret since the schedule has been out for years. To trample the 27 1/2-point underdog Houston Cougars and then inflict the ultimate pain on the football-loving people of Texas: taking their young men.

In Europe, casual brasseries are often joined at the hip to more formal dining establishments. Sometimes regular diners need to dine quickly or cheaply, and being able to do so at a favorite restaurant is a prized privilege. That's exactly what maitre d' Bill Magnuson (Gustaf) and chef Ulf Strandberg (Anders) had in mind when they opened Back Pocket, a smaller, less expensive adjunct to their well-known Gustaf Anders in Santa Ana.
