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

The Kings had never done a 10-year deal. Not with defenseman Drew Doughty, not with center Anze Kopitar and not even going back to the days of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky. That barrier was broken Thursday with the team's 10-year contract extension with Conn Smythe-winning goalie Jonathan Quick. Those familiar with the deal but not authorized to comment on the details said it was worth $58 million, noting it tapered off in the final three years, making it salary-cap friendly. The extension kicks in after next season when Quick is to make $1.7 million, a bargain for a playoff most valuable player.

"Today" show host Savannah Guthrie is engaged. The TV anchor, who replaced Ann Curry on the show last summer, is set to marry media consultant Mike Feldman, 44, a former consultant to Al Gore. She announced the news on the NBC morning show Monday. "We've been together four years, so, as he said, no one will accuse us of rushing into anything," Guthrie, 41, said on the air, adding that Feldman popped the question over the weekend. "We adore each other," she added.

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.
