Europe is fast overtaking the U.S. as the leading destination for the world's cocaine, and a single Italian mafia is largely responsible. The 'Ndrangheta crime syndicate, a ruthless and mysterious network of 155 families born in the rough hills here in southern Italy's Calabria region, now dominates the European drug trade.

Chris Kraul's article prompts me to send condolences. Venice's La Fenice is the most beautiful opera house. It breaks my heart to know he was not allowed to view it or to enjoy an evening there. WINIFRED CHAOTE Porterville

Venezuelan armed forces occupied 32 sugar plantations Thursday, the latest in a wave of takeovers that some say is a bid by President Hugo Chavez to regain political momentum and reverse his recent slide in the polls. The farms in Lara state were taken over by army units at the request of the Chavez government's National Land Institute, or INTI. The institute in recent years has handled the takeover of thousands of acres of farmland and turned them over to worker cooperatives.

Other major California refiners followed Chevron's lead Tuesday, raising wholesale gasoline prices and launching a new round of price hikes at the pump for Southern Californians. Unocal and Shell led with a 5.8-cent-per-gallon price boost, more than the 5.6-cent-per-gallon increase passed on Monday by Chevron to its Southland dealers. Texaco and refiners Ultramar and Tosco also raised prices by smaller amounts Tuesday, although some had begun nudging wholesale prices up late last week.

The L.A. City Council will soon convene an ad hoc committee to formally study the restructuring of the Department of Water and Power, a process likely to entail raising power rates, cutting more than 1,000 jobs, forming a strategic partnership with an outside energy company and cutting DWP profits to the city.

Chris Kraul stated two times in his article on Brazil ["Companies Unfazed by Changes Rocking Brazil," Dec. 14] that the state of Parana is north of Sao Paulo state. Admittedly, I have not been to Brazil in many years, but I always thought it was south of Sao Paulo. I hope Chrysler does not get too confused and insist on going in the wrong direction, or to the wrong state. WILLIAM HICKS Beverly Hills

The number of civilians killed by the Colombian armed forces has soared, activist groups allege, with many of the abuses committed by army units that had been vetted by the State Department. There were 329 so-called extrajudicial killings by the Colombian military and police last year, a coalition of Colombian rights groups asserts in a report, a 48% increase from the 223 reported in 2006. The Colombian Commission of Jurists, a Bogota-based civil society group that is responsible for verifying many of the deaths, said last week that a significant number of killings of civilians by the armed forces had been reported so far in 2008 in five Colombian states, but provided no precise numbers.

Excellent article ("The Voice to Watch," Jan. 23) by Chris Kraul -- someone who really knows his tenors. However, I noticed that he forgot to mention Jose Carreras, who, together with Domingo and Pavarotti, was a member of the Three Tenors franchise; otherwise, the "heir" to their throne, Rolando Villazon, wouldn't have been dubbed "The Fourth Tenor." Kraul also forgot to mention Roberto Alagna, the first candidate ever identified as "The Fourth Tenor" and still the most recorded and identifiable tenor of the present crop.
