"A Year in the Life" is perhaps the most intriguing program on television today. Why? Because it follows persons like you and me in situations that could happen to anyone in the viewing audience. I might add that this is the first weekly series that I have been interested in enough to watch devotedly on a regular basis. Congrats, NBC! Robin Callot, Sherman Oaks

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.)

Justin Bieber has turned to Twitter to express his sorrow over the death of Avalanna Routh -- a 6-year-old who was one of his biggest fans and became a Web sensation, dubbed "Mrs. Bieber," because of her love for the pop star. Bieber, 18, typically uses his Twitter account to promote upcoming performances, or his new "Believe" album, or to retweet the likes of Kim Kardashian and members of his Bieber Army. But Bieber's most recent tweets to his more than 28 million followers tell a different story -- underscoring just how hard-hit he was by news of the death of the little girl from Merrimac, Mass.

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.
