Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum have plenty to dance about: Husband and wife will soon be mommy and daddy. Tatum and Dewan-Tatum reps confirmed the two ”are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” according to People. This will be the first bundle for the actors who sparked on the set of 2006's "Step Up" and got hitched in  March 2009. "The first number that pops into my head is three," Tatum told the magazine about his ideal brood, "but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that.” It's not as if the Tatum household isn't busy as it is: Channing's had a banner year solidifying himself as a bankable movie star and sexiest man alive, while Jenna stretched some bad-girl muscles on "American Horror Story: Asylum.

Isaac Lamb, we salute you. The 31-year-old Portland-based actor is the creative force behind "Isaac's Lip-Dub Proposal," an over-the-top marriage proposal video that has gone viral on the Internet. In the six days since the video was posted online, it has already racked up more than 11.2 million views, and with good reason. This video is INSANE. About 60 people helped Lamb create the memorable marriage proposal, performing an elaborately choreographed street dance to the song "Marry Me" by Bruno Mars while Lamb's soon-to-be fiancee, Amy Frankel, clutched at her heart and squealed.

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.

Steel your hearts, ladies: Levi Johnston is officially a married man. That's right, Bristol Palin's baby daddy took himself off the market Sunday evening in Alaska when he tied the knot with second baby mama Sunny Oglesby, according to published reports. "Congrats to my Brother Levi and his lovely bride Sunny!" Johnston's sister Mercede tweeted Sunday before posting pics of the bride and groom. Johnston, whose whirlwind trip through tabloid fame included a trip to the Republican National Convention, posing for Playgirl and being engaged for a time to Palin - "We still hate each other," he's said - welcomed baby girl Breeze Beretta with Oglesby in September.

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.
