Regarding "Newspapers Post Steep Fall in Circulation" (May 3): Your circulation continues its spiral downward, and yet you continue to ignore the most obvious reason for and solution to your problem: Your bias has been unmasked, and those with a conservative viewpoint are leaving in droves. California may be liberal overall, but there are a significant number of conservatives here. Your numbers will continue to decline until you remedy the cause.

City Times is an extremely valuable element of your Sunday newspaper. It is perhaps the most important forum for the presentation of issues in Central Los Angeles. At present, however, City Times circulates only within the central city communities featured in the section. The true potential of City Times rests in its ability to inform all readers of the Los Angeles Times about life in Central Los Angeles. The Sunday section should be utilized to educate your readership about the fulfilling and the challenging aspects of life in the inner city.

SAN QUENTIN - The scene was almost indistinguishable from that in any other newsroom. Editors sat around chatting about the next issue and tinkering with stories. Front pages were tacked up on the walls, and family photos were taped to computer terminals. But in fact this newspaper office was unlike almost any other, obvious from the dress code: Staff members wore the standard blue uniform of California prison inmates. When the phone rang, the answer was a crisp, "Hello, San Quentin News.

It's been 30 years since the release of "The Big Chill," the ensemble drama about baby boomers pining for their lost youth while sprawled out on the floor of a vacation house and playing a lot of Motown music. If this reference eludes you, it's safe to say that you can consider yourself still young. If you remember this movie at all - especially if you remember the hype around its status as a cultural touchstone - I'm afraid you're tilting ever so slightly (or falling at a 90-degree angle)

Over the last year, the Orange County Register has been furiously paddling against a riptide that has newspapers around the country laying off journalists, shrinking coverage and in some cases cutting back home delivery. The Register has doubled the number of reporters and editors to 350 and fattened the paper by adding 22 weekly sections. On a recent Tuesday, it had 72 pages while the Los Angeles Times had 42. The Register's parent company, Freedom Communications Inc. in Irvine, has expanded its 26 weekly community newspapers and turned two into five-day-a-week operations.

Al Neuharth, the newspaper mogul who in 1982 made a $1-billion gamble called USA Today that earned derision for its emphasis on brevity, flashy graphics and upbeat stories but endured to become the nation's largest-circulation newspaper, died Friday in Cocoa Beach, Fla. He was 89. He died of complications from a recent fall, according to USA Today and the Newseum, the Washington, D.C., news museum he founded. Described by detractors and admirers as brutish, egomaniacal, brilliant and fiercely competitive, Neuharth was a latter-day Citizen Kane, who in the 1970s turned the small Gannett newspaper chain into the nation's most profitable newspaper company.

After years of devastating losses, the newspaper industry has a glimmer of good news. Circulation revenue for daily newspapers grew in 2012 for the first time in a decade as more people paid to subscribe to digital editions, according to data compiled by the Newspaper Assn. of America.

Phil Jackson would publicly criticize Kobe Bryant from time to time, but it was more a Zen zing than a diatribe. Mike Brown once complained to reporters about Bryant's game. Then he recanted the next day, even apologizing to Bryant. Coach Mike D'Antoni went full throttle Friday without ever saying Bryant's name after the Lakers shamefully lost to Washington, 103-100. He said the Lakers went one-on-one too often and didn't play enough defense against Trevor Ariza, a double indictment of Bryant, who was a perfect conductor before halftime but commandeered the offense the rest of the way and sloughed off defensively as Ariza hit three after three after three.
