You ought to include "The Neighbors" (by Lucretia Bingham, July 12) as a regular feature. Not only was it thoroughly enjoyable reading, but "the neighborhood" is at the heart of our American society. Children seem to instinctively seek out their peers in their neighborhood, but too often adults prefer to remain in anonymity, coming together only in times of crises. We think of our neighbors in terms of the style in which they keep their premises, their cars or their hobbies that encroach on the public view.

Your feature and photos depicting "decorative and intimate" exterior decorating ("Out Under the Sky," July 29) brought one thing to mind -- the ambience of Fred Sanford's junkyard. Terry Schauer Sherman Oaks

Hurray for AMC ("That Wasn't All, Folks, as Cartoons Make a Comeback," by Charles Solomon, May 25)! As a child, I remember seeing the cartoons before the main feature and it was a treat. The cartoon was sometimes better than the feature. I have missed them for so long, and I look forward to other theater chains taking up this bold "new" policy. G. P. HOLDERNESS Colton

Apple's next Mac operating system will look even more like its iPhones and iPads by integrating Siri and Apple Maps, according to a report. Nine to 5 Mac 's Mark Gurman reports that his sources say an early test version of the Mac OS X 10.9 operating system includes Siri, Apple's voice assistant feature. Sources tell Gurman that the feature runs similarly to how it does on the iPad. If Siri is integrated into the next Mac operating system, however, there is a chance Apple may not support the feature in its older generation of computers, the report speculates.

Your new Los Angeles Times Magazine is a disappointment. While it is considerably thicker than your previous magazine and carries a greater variety of stories, it does not have enough feature articles on homes. I realize that you have to provide wide selection to appeal to different interests. However, I feel that you have not done enough feature articles on homes and gardens. Home was always the first section I read. Please see what you can do about this. Vangie Madrid Anaheim

Can we look forward to a follow-up feature showing men what they look like in a pair of pleated pants? Is anyone suggesting they turn their pants around and wear them backward? LINDA J. HOYER Whittier
