I am amazed! People freely admit to a newswoman that they are "pleasure-seeking" adolescents in the fifth or sixth decade of their lives ("A Place With Every Single Thing--and More," Aug. 13). Jack Eskenazi proclaims to all that he has been through the "inventory" (i.e., women) in the Marina City Club. Jack will not date "inventory" outside his area code. To Carole (Jack's current unit of inventory): Any man who sees a woman as "inventory" will someday try to buy, sell, lease or discount you. To all the Caroles and Jacks at the Marina: Get out of your mink-lined playpens and do something with the time left to you. What a sad fate to finish one's life in an opulent rabbit hutch.

Say hello to Robin Seggelmann. The name may not ring a bell, but his handiwork has gained worldwide notoriety. Seggelman, it seems, is the poor soul who wrote the flawed piece of code that has come to be known as the Heartbleed bug. According to his profile on the LinuxTag conference website, Seggelmann is a " researcher for the transport protocols of the Internet. Occasionally his work find its way into standards of the Internet Engineering Taskorce (IETF). In a manner of speaking he helps writing the technical 'laws' of the Internet.
