Multi-generational living: A story in Saturday's Home section on "granny flats" said that USC gerontology professor Jon Pynoos' father lived on his property and received end-of-life care there for five years. It was Pynoos' father-in-law, not father, who lived in the guesthouse, and he was not given end-of-life care there. The remodeling described, including leveling the floor and installing grab bars, was rather so his father-in-law could function independently in the guesthouse.

I wish I'd read "Computeritis," by Judy Pasternak (March 12), a few years ago. I will mail it to my general practitioner (who said all I could do was take aspirin and apply heat), and to my father-in-law (who sent me an article about emotions that masquerade as illnesses). JUDI MURPHY Camarillo

A suspected U.S. missile strike killed a wife of Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mahsud at his father-in-law's house, Pakistani intelligence and military officials said. Mahsud associates acknowledged that a woman was killed but would not confirm her identity. They said Mahsud was not at the South Waziristan home during the attack, which authorities said also killed a second person. Two intelligence officials and one army official, who all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters, said the missile strike had destroyed the home of Mahsud's father-in-law, Akramud Din, and that two people had been killed, including the second of Mahsud's two wives.

Diane Zimmerman's tribute to her father-in-law which appeared in Valley View (Feb. 13) touched both of us. We were customers of Paul's for the many years he had his shop here in Studio City. It quickly became obvious to us that he was not just an ordinary man. His integrity would not let him carry any products that were not the very best! At times he could not furnish a particular cut of meat because he couldn't always obtain the best. His professional attitude, his knowledge and his caring for his customers still impress us deeply.

A Jewish woman has begun a hunger strike to win the right to emigrate and stopped nursing her baby to conserve her strength, the woman's husband said Monday. Alexander Kholmyansky said that his 27-year-old wife, Anna, began fasting Sunday to pressure Soviet authorities into granting the couple an exit visa. "She will just be taking water. No fruits, no vitamins, nothing but water," Kholmyansky said.

Bill Cosby can't play chess. On his Thursday night shows, Cosby has tried, on occasion, to play with his son and father-in-law. While watching the Nov. 21 episode, it occurred to me why he never wins: He doesn't know how to set-up the chessboard. According to World Chess Federation Part I, Article 2.2: "The chessboard is placed between the players in such a way that the corner square to the right of each player is white." PAUL QUADE Anaheim
