Barry Stone's reply to the home buyer asking about roofing felt ("Adding Drip Flashing to Roof Will Help Prevent Rotting Eaves," Nov. 7) understates the importance of felt by describing it as a "backup waterproof membrane in case of leakage" beneath the shingles. In fact, the felt layer is the primary waterproof part of a roof. The purpose of shingles, shakes or tiles on a roof is to protect the felt from weathering, not to waterproof the roof. Exposed to the elements by a missing shingle, felt becomes brittle and cracks, allowing water to penetrate the roof.

Felt obituary: The obituary of Watergate figure W. Mark Felt in Friday's California section said that he oversaw background checks at a Seattle plutonium plant. Felt was based for a time in the FBI's Seattle field office, but the Hanford plutonium plant, where he oversaw the background checks, is in Richland, Wash., about 200 miles southeast of Seattle. Also, a photo caption accompanying the obituary incorrectly gave his name as Mark W. Felt.

Climate change is already affecting every continent and ocean, posing immediate and growing risks to people, an international panel of scientists warned Monday. The longer society delays steps to cut the release of planet-warming greenhouse gases, the more severe and widespread the harm will be, said the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The report, which collects and summarizes thousands of scientific studies, is the panel's starkest yet in laying out the risks facing nature and society.

SUNDAY'S story about the film "Towelhead" ["If He Gets It Right, You'll Squirm," by Matthew DeBord, Sept. 14] referred to (male) critics describing it as exploitative and kiddie porn. That's how I felt about the same writer's "American Beauty," with the creepy middle-aged male fantasy of large-breasted artsy girl and virginal cheerleader. I didn't like that film. It made me uncomfortable, and I didn't relate to anything in it. "Towelhead," on the other hand, seemed to be checking off a list of "actual" sexual experiences and issues I remember having as a girl and a teenager.

If only the children who watched with such delight that cavalcade of weapons could have felt, even briefly, what their peers in Iraq had felt at the approach of the same machines. If only those parents who'd pointed skyward in wonder and glee had had the impulse, instead, to hit the ground in terror and cower in despair. DIANA SHAW Los Angeles

In an agonizing overtime loss to the last-place Edmonton Oilers, Ducks star forward Corey Perry took seven shots, was around the net routinely and couldn't score a goal. "We've got to put those in … don't look for the easy outs," said Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau . "When he bears down on those, he usually scores. " Less than 24 hours later, with first place in the Pacific Division at hand against a Vancouver Canucks team clinging to playoff life, Perry bore down. He powered to the net again Saturday, took a Saku Koivu pass through traffic and banged at the puck until a clinching third-period goal seized the night.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It had been a calf injury that delayed Josh Hamilton's Cactus League debut until Monday. He singled for his first hit, then took off for second base. For the Angels, that was as good a sign as any. The swing might not be there yet, but the legs are back. "It felt good," Hamilton said. "I did all the things you're supposed to be able to do on the field. " On Monday he did, since the Angels limited him to designated hitter in a game against the San Francisco Giants.

Vitali Klitschko may have characterized several of his matches in the boxing ring as life-and-death struggles. Now, he knows the real thing. Perhaps you have made the connection between the longtime heavyweight champion of the world and the videos and the pictures this week documenting violence on the streets of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. By midweek, fighting between government forces and opposition groups intensified. At one point, to keep the riot police away, opposition forces set on fire part of the city center, an area fittingly known as Independence Square.

In their newest cinematic adventure, "Muppets Most Wanted," set for release from Disney on March 21, a more dangerous foe lies in wait for the performers - a criminal mastermind named Constantine who happens to bear a striking resemblance to the troupe's genial impresario.
