Congrats to the South Coast Repertory Board of Directors for selecting Cesar Pelli as the architect for the upcoming expansion.

Regarding the recent Dalai Lama tour and visit to Cal State Fullerton on June 28: Your fine articles have portrayed a person who is full of love, compassion, humor, tolerance and also is humble.
