David Kopay's homosexuality is his choice. Bill Plaschke's column publicizing Kopay's choice [Dec. 29] is also the editorial choice of the L.A. Times. Being a homosexual is a sporting event? Who gives a damn about Kopay's choice, except possibly another homosexual? OTIS PAGE Arroyo Grande Thanks for the great story on Dave Kopay. He worked in obscurity for many years at Linoleum City, but as a young gay man, because of his courage, I knew he was gay too. He was the only positive role model I had to reflect on during that awkward time in my life.

Thank you CBS for showing the movie "Romero" (April 16). Produced by the Paulist Fathers, it was powerful, reminding us that we each have a choice for good or evil. Carolyn McQuaid, Laguna Hills

Myron S. Crespin still does not get it when he compares "junk mail" to "junk news" in newspapers ("It's Unfair to Call It 'Junk Mail,' " Letters, March 10). It's choice. If I get a paper delivered every day, it's because I requested it. If I don't like it, I can cancel it. Give me the same choice with junk mail. Got it? JERRY BARNES Reseda

Brandon Jennings [July 10] is not a trend-setter, he ran out of options. To spin this as if he is helping mankind and pushing back at the NBA and the NCAA is almost laughable. He does not have a choice, because the choice he made was to work on his crossover while other kids did their homework. Jeff Wolf Encino

There are only a few times in our lives when we are presented with a choice so big that it will assuredly shape the experiences of every generation to follow. A choice that holds sway over the smallest of details in our children's cherished memories, and that of our chldren's children. This, ladies and gentleman, is one of those times. So please, for our future's sake, don't vote for the iron. In what is the biggest choice facing American consumers since voting to replace the tan M&M with the blue one in 1995, Hasbro is asking Monopoly fans to vote to keep their favorite piece in the current set. The lowest vote-getter will go directly to Monopoly jail, never to return.
