I'm mad as hell and I can't take it anymore. Pepperdine is a major university and the basketball team doesn't get the coverage it deserves. The Waves have defeated Gonzaga and UCLA and they have the toughest schedule in the country. Paul Westphal should be coach of the year. He has proven to be two steps above Lavin and Bibby. What does it take to notice this team? Bob Morris Palos Verdes Estates

Assisted Loving True Tales of Double Dating With My Dad Bob Morris Harper: 288 pp., $24.95 -- Would YOU look at this book jacket? What was HarperCollins thinking? An old guy, with a comb-over and a gut, sitting on a chaise at the beach -- legs spread wide in his too-tight Burberry swim trunks -- skin like leather, gold chains at his neck and wrists, his mouth full of sandwich, this is supposed to be funny? Because, what, the real story isn't funny enough?

Re "He's the Ultimate Outsider," April 26: Ramsey Clark has hardly "forfeited a last chance to make a difference." In 1991, after Gulf War I, he founded the International Action Center so the peace movement would have a permanent home. After 9/11, IAC and others formed the ANSWER coalition, the biggest and most active of the antiwar coalitions, which has organized numerous huge peace rallies nationwide. I'd say he was making quite a difference. Bob Morris Encino Clark's views on U.S. foreign policy are cogent and shared by many outside the mainstream.

Some people call this neighborhood Baja Beverly Hills; some just call it Beverly Hills-adjacent. It's convenient to parks and the Museum of Tolerance. And has a huge barbecue restaurant. For some years, it was a Love's BBQ (it still has the metal heart sign), and before that it was Noonan's (there are still warnings in the large parking lot that it's only for Noonan's customers).
