Residential blocks east of Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles are filling in as the area attracts more young singles, couples and baby boomers. Six real estate parcels, now mostly parking lots in the shadow of AT&T Center, have been purchased in what may be the largest downtown land acquisition since the recession. And a $750-million residential complex there is on the drawing boards. Sleek high-rise apartment towers, shops and restaurants are to rise along a path of real estate development spreading east from Staples that is transforming a former asphalt-covered dead zone in South Park into a more pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.

David Martin was in the mood for raw fish, and he liked the deal offered by a Studio City sushi restaurant: all you can eat for $28. He took a seat at the counter and started ordering. But it turned out that Martin didn't really want sushi, which includes rice; he wanted all-you-can-eat sashimi, which is just fish. He began picking the seafood off the top and leaving the rice. Restaurant owner Jay Oh told Martin that if he wanted the all-you-can-eat price, he'd have to eat the rice too and not just fill up on fish.

"Taking a Bush League Holiday" (Commentary, Aug. 24) is easily dismissed as so much liberal claptrap. One would think, however, that David Martin, a Canada-based writer, could have had come up with a better written and more substantive effort. Why, while waiting for some of that wonderful socialized medical care in Canada, he would have had time to research and write the history of presidential vacation spots, from Washington's Mount Vernon and Jefferson's Monticello to Clinton's glomming onto, well, whomever.

Regarding same-sex marriage and the forecasted economic advantages for California ("Same-sex weddings could be a gift to California's economy," June 2): My partner and I will tie the knot in Marina del Rey on a yacht in October. We already paid $10,000 for our four-hour cruise and the ceremony. This does not count the rings, our suits and the hotel rooms for all guests and their flights to L.A. So businesses are getting a piece of the cake. I am sure the pink dollar is more than welcome in this economic period.

Tammy Martin quietly pulled a gun out of her purse and pointed it at her husband, David. His eyes were closed and his head was bowed as he sat at the dining table, praying with his parents. Tammy Martin pulled the trigger. The slug hit her husband in the chest, narrowly missing his heart. The .357-caliber pistol roared again. Another shot to the chest. She kept firing. Her father-in-law, Bob Martin, was hit as he tried to grab the gun.
