How could you allow the picture of the two-egg breakfast to be published in your newspaper? Did you look at it, did you check it before press time? Why didn't you break eggs until you got two with the same size yolks? That picture is a disgrace to the restaurants you were writing about. One large yolk and one small yolk, boy oh boy! Yours for better pictures. HANNAH H. REMEIKA Torrance

A proposed state constitutional amendment defining a fertilized human egg as a person was certified for the November ballot, moving the state a step closer to an election battle over abortion rights. State officials said backers turned in an estimated 103,000 valid signatures, far more than the 76,000 required. Opponents say the proposed amendment could affect birth control because hormonal contraception such as the pill might sometimes prevent fertilized eggs from attaching to the uterine wall.

I was very pleased to read Andrew Bender's article on cheap (but quality) eats in Tokyo ["Stretching Your Yen in Tokyo," Jan. 14]. I travel to Japan -- mostly Tokyo -- for pleasure twice a year. Like Bender, I often get asked if eating in Japan is expensive, as if eating at Nobu-style restaurants is the norm. It was great to see some of my favorite places listed, especially Kyushu Jangara ramen, where I took some friends from England who met me in Tokyo over New Year's. They didn't understand why I nearly forced them to go until they sipped the soup base and sighed.

Scientists have discovered some of the oldest dinosaur embryos ever found - a rare collection of delicate fossils that offer an unprecedented look into the remarkably speedy early development of these enormous animals. The bed of Lufengosaurus bones and smashed eggshell, described in Thursday's edition of the journal Nature , may also provide some insight into the growth of birds and other dinosaur relatives. “There's nothing like this that has been discovered before,” said Luis Chiappe, a dinosaur paleontologist at the Natural History Museum of L.A. County, who was not involved in the study.

Peter Carl Fabergé, Google doodle recipient, lived a Humpty Dumpty kind of life -- specializing in the delicate and ending with a great fall. The master goldsmith and jeweler who founded the House of Fabergé was beloved by Russian czars and turned out fantastical baubles and jewel-encrusted gewgaws for the aristocracy. Then came the Russian Revolution, which destroyed his way of life and spurned what he loved best: objects of exquisite luxury. Fabergé was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1846. The doodle is celebrating the 166th anniversary of his birth.
