On the front page of the April 25 Opinion Section is a depiction of Janet Reno with a map of Texas stapled to her chest. Susan Estrich in her commentary states that Reno made an error in judgment by listening to her advisers. Unfortunately David Koresh, who might or might not have given her the real story about what he would do, was not one of them. Rather than making an error in judgment, Reno took a calculated risk based on the best information available and made a decision. My questions to Estrich are: What decisions would you have made, given the circumstances?

An 18-year-old Los Amigos High School student was arrested this morning on suspicion of stabbing a fellow student in the chest on a school parking lot after the two argued, Fountain Valley Lt. Larry Griswold said. Nathaniel G. Bonghanoy of Santa Ana was arrested about 10:33 a.m. at his job in Santa Ana after he allegedly stabbed a 16-year-old student in the chest about 7:45 a.m. Griswold said witnesses said the stabbing followed an incident in which a car occupied by the victim was cut off by another in the lot. Bonghanoy, who was driving nearby, laughed at the victim and several friends after the incident, Griswold said.

If your back feels stiff and tight, try lying on the floor for a few minutes and hugging your knees into your chest. This is a safe and effective way to release tight muscles in your back, legs and groin. Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor and knees bent (you can place a small folded towel under your head for comfort). Bend your right knee into your chest and pause. Check that the back of your hips remains on the floor. Elongate your neck by moving your shoulders down away from your ears.

One of the safest and most effective ways to strengthen your back is to perform exercises on the floor. With most of your weight supported on the ground, you can target the muscles in your upper and middle back without putting any pressure on your lower back. Lie face down on a padded, level surface or mat. Straighten your legs behind you with your ankles parallel to each other. Place your fingertips next to your rib cage and tuck your elbows in toward your body. Pin your shoulders back as you inhale and raise your chest and head away from the floor.

If you're short on time, include this core conditioning move to target your midsection quickly and safely. Begin with the bent-knees variation and progress to the more intense straight-leg version as you get stronger. Lie on your back with your arms at your sides and your knees together and bent directly above your hips, shins parallel to the ceiling. Inhale with your head and your hands resting on the floor. On the exhalation, contract your abdominals and bring your head, chest and shoulders off the floor while reaching your hands past the outsides of your knees.
