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

A true (if someone misleadingly named) jazz family affair, the Clayton Brothers feature Grammy nominated pianist Gerald Clayton in an ensemble that features his father John on bass and his uncle Jeff on alto saxophone. The youngest Clayton has already established himself as an artist to watch with his 2011 album "Bond," and the agreeable swing of this ensemble's recent album "The Gathering" shows a family in utter harmony.

Facebook was able to avoid what could have been an embarrassing privacy ordeal with a messaging feature it built for New Year's Day. The Menlo Park, Calif.-based social network recently introduced a new feature for its desktop site that allows users to pre-write messages for their friends that get sent out as soon as 2013 arrives at the stroke of midnight. Nice concept, but the feature had a fatal flaw: The messages weren't private. The top 10 embarrassing tech flops of 2012 British blogger Jack Jenkins discovered and reported the problem with the "New Year's Midnight Delivery" feature on Sunday.

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
