I am a retired physician and an emeritus professor of medicine. I also have Alzheimer's disease. Before my diagnosis, I was certainly familiar with the disease, having seen patients with Alzheimer's over the years in my internal medicine practice. But I was slow to suspect my own affliction. Now that I've been diagnosed, I can trace my problems back some 10 years, to when I was 76. I had been chairing a monthly program in medical ethics, and I knew most of the speakers and found it easy and enjoyable to introduce them.

In the perennial battle over how the West's vast acreage of federal forests should be managed, science is a favorite weapon. And on the pro-logging side no academic has been as visible as Thomas M. Bonnicksen, particularly in California. The Texas A&M emeritus professor of forest science has testified before Congress 13 times, written numerous op-ed pieces and been widely quoted in Western newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times.

"Two's Company, Three's a Graduation at Cal State University" (May 18), on the three graduates of CSU Channel Islands, stated that "Cal State officials say they had to look back to the mid-1800s ... to find an undergraduate class nearly as small."

Re "A Faculty for Misstatement," Commentary, April 22: So that's where some lawyers learn their specious syllogistic reasoning. The august UCLA law professors Kenneth Klee, Daniel Lowenstein and Grant Nelson, believing the liberation of Iraq to be "just and necessary," conclude that the invasion of Iraq, which presumably resulted in the liberation of Iraq, was also, therefore, "just and necessary." Moreover, they engage in a bit of hyperbole in their claim of having been "mugged" because their endorsement of the war was not reflected in the statement approved by the majority of UCLA academic senate members who voted.
