A pregnant woman saved her 18-month-old son by grabbing him from his burning crib Wednesday morning, firefighters said. Rita McCarty, 33, awoke to the smoke alarm at 10 a.m. and found her son's room on fire, Orange County Fire Capt. Dan Young said. An extension cord under the crib had short-circuited, Young said. The boy, Tony, was not seriously injured, nor were other family members in the house on Via Portola. But five exotic birds died in the blaze, Young said.

I'M CERTAIN that a decorated nursery or dedicated nursery room serving another function pending future children can be a painful reminder of struggles couples face [“Nursery, Now or Never?” July 10]. They may consider a different kind of transitional room. Most cribs today are "forever" beds in that they transition from a crib to a toddler bed to a full-size bed. Why not design the extra future kids room in the reverse: Buy the crib, set it up as a full bed in a guest room.

It feels like the end times are coming to little Brewster, R.I., one of those anonymous towns that used to have an economic purpose - fishing, quarry mining, farming, textiles - but now pretty much just holds beds for commuters who work in other places. First, a newborn baby disappears from its crib in the local hospital, replaced by a large yellow snake. Then a stranger in town is stabbed and scalped in his car out by the Great Swamp, the site of historical atrocities during the Colonial era and local legends ever since.

I am really disgusted with the "Tales From the Crypt" reruns on Fox. What happened to the blood, guts and horror? It doesn't have the same effect that it did on HBO. Maybe Fox should change the title to "Tales From the Crib." Denny Patel, Eagle Rock
