Congrats to the South Coast Repertory Board of Directors for selecting Cesar Pelli as the architect for the upcoming expansion. I hope they will continue to show how smart they are by insisting he incorporate more ladies restrooms in his design. (From one who has had to wait for, as well as listen to, my bride's complaints.)

SAN FRANCISCO -- And the winner for best tweet: Ellen DeGeneres, who struck social-media gold for the Oscars and sponsor Samsung with the best selfie of the night. The celebrity-filled selfie on a Samsung phone was the Twitter star of Oscar night. DeGeneres never mentioned Samsung, a major Oscars advertiser, but appeared to use the company's Galaxy Note 3 for the selfie, which was actually taken by Bradley Cooper. It was epic product placement for the Apple competitor. Samsung, however, still has some mighty competition from the iPhone in becoming the smartphone to the stars.

I hasten to add my congrats to you for getting "Be Prepared: Posse Out to 'Save' Scouts" safely past every censor and into print. It's long overdue. For too long, we've slipped along thoughtlessly letting total irresponsibles make up our media and our minds on matters having to do with religion. Simple rational fact goes out the window as irrelevant in this special case. Now if that lawyer who defends kids from refusing to mumble "God" in the Pledge is looking for the next challenge, I suggest "In God We Trust" on our money.

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. As the crossroads of the world, Los Angeles welcomes and celebrates our rich diversity of culture and perspectives. We are so privileged to live where we can view our society as the culmination of Earth's delicious offerings. Congrats to the Times covering this visit of promise, optimism and joy. RON ST. CLAIR Costa Mesa

Regarding Antonio Asasta Sweet's diatribe, (Letters, Feb. 6): He writes that Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) is a racist and is dehumanizing and criminalizing a whole population! What tommyrot. Rohrabacher has never referred to American citizens (as Acosta wrote he became) in his efforts for justice, only to illegal immigrants in this country. Acosta Sweet is the one who has his facts incorrect. Congrats, Acosta Sweet, on being a wage-earner, professional and "educated."

Re "Save the Book Review," Letters, July 22 I read with dismay that you plan to stop publishing the Book Review, the section I relish the most in the entire paper. I have a Sunday ritual of taking the Book Review to Starbucks, reading the section from cover to cover and then, at the Los Angeles Public Library website, reserving the most interesting books. Judging by the length of the waiting lists for these books, many do this. Avid readers are the last group of people a newspaper should want to alienate.

Congrats to Apple, which has reached the 25-billion-apps-downloaded mark. And an even bigger congrats to the yet-to-be-named individual who won the $10,000 App Store gift card for being the one to download that coveted milestone. The tech company made the announcement via a colorful banner on its website this weekend, telling customers: “A billion thanks. 25 times over. The App Store has reached 25 billion downloads. Thanks for getting us there.” Apple had been holding a 25 Billion Apps Countdown Promotion since Feb. 13 and said the winner of the contest would be listed online within about 10 days following the end of the promotion period.
