Thanks and congratulations to NBC for its courage in airing the story of "Roe vs. Wade." It was a fair presentation of a controversial issue crucial to us all, male and female. I found it very illuminating. J.K. Glaser, Van Nuys

A small number of children in California have come down with polio-like illnesses since 2012 -- suffering paralysis in one or more limbs and other symptoms -- and physicians and public health officials do not yet know why. A virus may play a role, said Dr. Carol Glaser, leader of a California Department of Public Health team investigating the illnesses, which are occurring sporadically throughout the state. The afflicted kids suffer severe weakness or paralysis, which strikes rapidly -- sometimes after a mild respiratory illness. Scans of the patients' spinal cords show patterns of damage similar to that found in polio sufferers , Glaser said. Two of the affected children tested positive for enterovirus-68, a virus that is usually associated with respiratory illness but which has been linked to polio-like illnesses as well.

When Gary Glaser began planning a documentary on the homeless, he didn't suspect that he would soon find himself out of work, his car repossessed, his telephone service about to be cut off and many of his belongings in the pawn shop. "Now I know how easy it is to fall once you're on the skids," Glaser, 34, said the other day in his small bachelor apartment in Hollywood.

Country singer and songwriter Tompall Glaser, a member of country's “outlaw” movement of the 1970s, has died after a long illness, his nephew Louis Glaser has told the Associated Press. He was 79. An associate of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson, Glaser never achieved the stardom accorded his fellow outlaws, but was a part of country music history for his role on the 1976 album “Wanted! The Outlaws,” which featured tracks by Glaser, Nelson, Jennings and Jessi Colter.

Your Dec. 20 editorial, "Centrist Health Reform," urges Congress to revive SB 2274, which would stop our current policies' cruelty to disabled children. A disabled child loses Medicaid and any real chance for private insurance when his or her parents leave welfare for work. This Christmas, America deserves an electrical blackout to remind us of the dark, cold hearts we have for our most vulnerable children. JACK GLASER Santa Ana

It's not funny anymore. Not that they ever were. I am referring to the tabloids. I have just read your story, "Breaking the Silence," about the Glaser family and the incredible challenge brought to them by AIDS (Aug. 25). They have spoken with courage to Janet Huck of The Times because the tabloids are preparing an onslaught of cruelty against them, and they are attempting through honesty and responsible reporting to protect themselves. The major tabloid has changed its television advertising.

The products: We all carry the residue of modern living deep within our bodies. We get mercury from fish, pesticides from apples and polyvinyl chlorides from that "new-car smell." A 2005 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study of more than 2,000 people across the country found traces of more than 60 toxic compounds, including such nasty stuff as dioxins and uranium, in the blood and urine of participants.

Another angel among us has passed on. The voice of Elizabeth Glaser is silent this day, stilled by the killer AIDS (Dec. 4). I have no doubt that she herself would take no offense at how harsh and tragic that sentence reads. Nor would she fail to see the other, hopeful side. And that is, that in silence now, we might hear. After reading accounts of Glaser's activism and courage in the face of AIDS--in fact, giving it a new face itself, that of a woman, compassionate and driven--I listened.

Re "Out of the TV Newsroom Closet" (Sept. 3): In 1978, I was taken to my first gay bar by two newsroom co-workers at KNXT-TV, now KCBS-TV. They warned me never to talk about this at work. While I was grateful for my initiation into a bit of gay culture, another message was clear: Stay in the closet at Channel 2, or else. This would not be the case at my next two jobs as an on-air reporter-weatherman in Roanoke, Va., and Austin, Tex. Save one reporter, I and my sexuality were accepted by my fellow employees.

Donald A. Glaser Nobel Prize-winning physicist Donald A. Glaser, 86, a Nobel Prize-winning UC Berkeley physicist who invented a device called the bubble chamber, which allowed researchers to track the paths of high-energy atomic particles after collisions and which played a role in the discovery of new atomic particles, died in his sleep Thursday at his Berkeley home, the university announced. The specific cause was not given. Glaser, a longtime UC Berkeley professor of physics, as well as of molecular and cell biology, won the 1960 Nobel Prize in physics for the bubble chamber, which allowed scientists to track the movements of electrons, protons and other particles.

Sherry Glaser's "Family Secrets" still holds the record it earned in 1995 as the longest-running, one-person, off-Broadway show. The comedy, in which Glaser played five characters inspired by her offbeat family, got glowing reviews and won awards across the country. Skip ahead 15 years. Glaser's new show, "The Second Coming: A One-Woman Comedy of Biblical Proportions," is now playing at the Two Roads Theatre in Studio City. Over breakfast on a sultry fall Saturday, Glaser, 51, discussed her own second coming to the stage, an event she naturally ascribes, in light of her divine subject matter and the strange twists her life and career have taken, to mystical as well as material forces.

WHO SHE IS: As artistic director of Saint Joseph Ballet, an after-school program for disadvantaged children, Melanie Rios Glaser works with students who have always felt the strain of economic hardship; some even shoulder the burden of managing family finances. But at the Santa Ana academy, Glaser's 400-plus pupils (ages 9 to 19) can shed their worries. They receive ballet training and learn about movement, performing spirals and hinges in professional-grade theaters. "The philosophy was that, because it's for low-income youth, if they had the best possible facilities, then their spirits would soar," says Rios, a 37-year-old Juilliard-trained dancer and choreographer who has been with Saint Joseph Ballet since 1999.

I like the cool and heft of it, dull metal on the palm, And the click, the hiss, the spark fuming into flame, Boldface of fire, the rage and sway of it, raw blue at the base And a slope of gold, a touch to the packed tobacco, the tip Turned red as a warning light, blown brighter by the breath, The pull and the pump of it, and the paper's white Smoothed now to ash as the smoke draws back, drawn down To the black crust of lungs, tar and poisons in the pink, And the blood sorting it out, veins

WOKING, England -- Starsky and the Fonz are having the time of their lives being hissed and booed every night by hundreds of screaming children. The Hollywood stars of 1970s TV series are reveling in their roles for pantomime, a rumbustious British theatrical tradition. In the run-up to Christmas every year, theaters across Britain are packed with kids, often enjoying classic fairy tales given slapstick treatment. Pantomime is all about joining in. Everyone shouts "Look out behind you!"

Playwright Tony Kushner's foreword to "The Design of Dissent," Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic's book about protest graphics, reads like an adventure novel. Kushner, a master storyteller, quotes another master -- Stendhal -- to present a fascinating tale of a late-18th century political cartoon that inspired action against an oppressor.
