Have some compassion for the feelings of the people who are parties to the lawsuit or close to those parties. The merits of the lawsuit will be determined by the legal process, and you doubtless have a right and duty to report the events as they unfold. On the other hand, you must not allow Calendar Letters to be used by writers who have an ax to grind with USC Radio's programming or the personalities who present that programming to express subjective dislikes or to engage in unfounded allegations or purely malicious speculation about what has taken place.

Yo-Yo Ma, the most visible cellist of his generation, sits cocooned inside the ostentatious privacy of a long, white limousine that glides away from the Watergate Hotel in Washington. There is a stack of newspapers on the leather seat next to him, but Ma ignores both the photo of himself in the Washington Post, taken at last night's White House dinner for Chinese President Jiang Zhemin, and the one on the front page of the Baltimore Sun. He is talking about the Kalahari Desert.

It's the same gift exchange every year: KOST-FM (103.5) offers its listeners wall-to-wall holiday music, and they in turn give the adult-contemporary station a bump to No. 1 in the ratings. Last month was no different, according to figures released by the Arbitron ratings service. KOST shot to the top of the Los Angeles-Orange County market, garnering 5.5% of the radio audience ages 6 and older. Top-40 station KIIS-FM (102.7) finished second, at 4.7%, for the ratings period, which surveyed listeners from Nov. 12 to Dec. 9. In previous period, KOST was fourth at 3.7%.

"Mozart in the Jungle" -- a satirical look at the classical-music world that stars Gael Garcia Bernal as a thinly veiled parody of conductor Gustavo Dudamel -- has been picked up by Amazon, the online retailer announced this week. The pilot episode of the racy comedy was released online earlier this year. In addition to "Mozart," Amazon Studios has picked up "The After," from "X-Files" veteran Chris Carter; "Transparent," a domestic comedy; and "Bosch," based on the novels by Michael Connelly.

Amazon.com, the world's biggest online retailer, will start a separate website dedicated to classical music. Classical music was the second-fastest growing music category at Amazon.com in 2006, the Seattle-based company said. A dwindling number of music stores and shrinking classical-music sections increased demand on its website, the company said.
