David SHAW has truly missed the point ["The Blog Squad Can Add Another Notch to its Belt," Feb. 20]. As an educator, parent and concerned citizen I am looking for truth, not opinions. Start asking the real questions and come up with some solutions! It's time for those in the world of publication to realize people like myself are fed up with all this foolishness. I have read some of those bloggers and found them to be insightful and refreshing. You can attack them, but the reason they are growing is because they meet the need of the times.

HAS the rise of movie bloggers corrupted the Oscars "from a celebration of movies into a silly exercise in Ouija board-style predictions and lamebrained analysis"? Los Angeles Times staff writer Patrick Goldstein suggested as much in Tuesday's column "The Big Picture." The response from the blogosphere has been equally sharp and biting. Here are excerpts of responses from some bloggers. David Poland MovieCityNews.com You know, Patrick ... it's getting a little sad. For years ... your couple of columns during the season were chewed on and debated like they meant something.

Political ads sent by text message or placed on websites will have to include a message to voters disclosing who is behind them under new rules approved Friday by the state's campaign watchdog agency. The rule from the California Fair Political Practices Commission subjects online ads to the standards that apply to television, radio and print political advertising. "What we have here is a logical extension of existing rules for more traditional forms of political communications into the online universe," said Commission Chairman Dan Schnur.

Trenta is the new 31-ounce drink size from Starbucks. The drink may be an excellent form of product marketing but it's a terrible form of nutrition, say weight-loss experts. Dr. Jessica Bartfield of Loyola University Health System in Chicago is among the experts who say that the trenta encourages people to consume even larger portions of foods instead of scaling back. Large portion sizes is one of the reasons why so many Americans battle their weight, Bartfield said Monday in a news release.

It's been more than a quarter-century since futurist Stewart Brand said, "Information wants to be free. " In about half that time, the founders of Google have accumulated fabulous riches by putting free information a mouse click away. Six years on, Arianna Huffington has shown that free content, assembled by a couple hundred paid journalists and thousands of unpaid bloggers, can pay off in a big way — at least for her. In recent days, the second part of Brand's aphorism has also been proved.

After spending the bulk of my career writing solely for newspapers, I stepped into the blogosphere a year ago and discovered a whole new world of financial advice. The World Wide Web is host to hundreds of financial bloggers, who provide everything from solid counsel to something of a support group for the budget-challenged. The advice you get in the blogosphere is different from what you see in the newspaper for a variety of reasons. It's sometimes profane and often directed toward a single topic -- including such things as student debt or frugal living.

Fourteen activists were convicted of subversion Wednesday in Vietnam and sentenced to up to 13 years in prison, in an unusually large case centering on their alleged ties to a banned democracy group. Vietnamese state media reported that the dissidents had been sent abroad by the “reactionary organization” Viet Tan to draw up plans to overthrow the government, equipped with money, vehicles and training. Viet Tan, an exiled political party, slammed the case as a “sham trial” to persecute dissidents for peaceful advocacy.
