Kudos to Harriett M. Wieder, Kathryn Thompson, Roger Johnson, et al. for having the courage and integrity to stand up at this crucial moment and depart from a Republican Party that has clearly gone haywire! The Republican convention was an eerie display of dangerous divisiveness and inappropriate intrusion into domains which are private and personal. As for me, I'll fight tooth and nail before I let the likes of Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and the rest of the religious right run my life.

Booster Shots blogged Thursday about Nature's look back at the human genome, published 10 years ago. Now let's note the journal's look to the future. Leaders of the National Human Genome Research Institute on Thursday published their strategic plan for the next phase of human genome research. The paper, "Charting a Course for Genomic Medicine From Base Pairs to Bedside," sets up five "domains" for the future of genome research: understanding the structure of genomes, understanding the biology of genomes, understanding the biology of disease, advancing the science of medicine, and improving the effectiveness of healthcare.

The Anaheim Grizzlies might never materialize, but that hasn't stopped an Anaheim ticket brokerage from reserving the Internet domain name, anaheimgrizzliestickets.com, and a Mississippi college student from reserving the name anaheimgrizzlies.com. Michael Heisley, owner of the Vancouver Grizzlies, faces a March 26 deadline to tell the NBA where he would like his team to play next season, with Anaheim one of five cities under consideration.

City officials tonight will discuss asking the state for money to acquire the 200-acre DeWitt/Platz site in Laguna Canyon and 245 other acres, all by eminent domain. Laguna Beach was allocated $10 million under the California Wildlife, Coastal and Park Land Conservation Act, which provides grants for acquisition of natural lands. Thus far, Laguna Beach has spent $3 million of that. Formal application is required to the state for the remaining funds.

Denise Hamilton's Times Shopper article ("Moscow's Toy Makers Fashion Political Satire," March 8) regarding matroshka nesting dolls from Moscow was interesting. Perhaps other collectors would like to know they are available, and for less expense, at J.C. Penney in Anchorage and souvenir shops in San Marino, Italy. PAT HAMMER Manhattan Beach

While policymakers and Netizens continue to debate the best way to phase out Network Solutions' monopoly for registering domain names, the Internet Council of Registrars is forging ahead with its own plan to introduce competition. The Council of Registrars, also known as Core, said it is reviewing applications from companies that want to make money by registering new domain names once Network Solutions' exclusive contract expires this fall.
