Graham's lament over the devirginization of rock 'n' roll was heart-wrenching. No doubt Graham cried bitter tears as he packed them in at the Cow Palace during the '70s and early '80s. Woodstock didn't change rock music from an art form into a corporate industry: The promoters did. NICOLE DILLENBERG Glendale

Your editorial "Eagles are Riches, Too" (March 8) appears to lean heavily on Graham to sell his property at less than fair-market value in order to save the eagles. Most of us would agree that those eagles are priceless and must be protected. Let's all accept the responsibility of that protection and not try to impose it upon Graham by suggesting that he receive less than a fair price. Surely we Californians can afford to share the burden of saving these eagles by doing the right and honest thing--paying Graham a fair price for his land!

In his letter about American Continental's sale of notes to Lincoln Savings customers, T. Bruce Graham makes some invalid assumptions ("It Was Risky Business," July 16): He wrote, "I am quite sure a prospectus accompanied the offer." That's wrong, at least in my case and in those of other note buyers with whom I have spoken. I did not receive a prospectus until two weeks after I had invested. The office was conveniently out of them. And even then, the prospectus gave no indication of the risk involved.

I write this letter in reference to an article by Holly Gleason reviewing T. Graham Brown at the Crazy Horse Steak House (Calendar, Sept. 14, "Passion Sets T. Graham Brown Apart From the Country Pack"). Having been in the music business more than 12 years, I have read many articles and reviews of different artists, but rarely have I seen such a compassionate and artistic insight into a musician. It is genuinely refreshing to read a review from a more artistic point of view, void of prejudice, where the artist is not judged by personal likes and dislikes.

So John Graham, the White House regulatory czar, places the value of each senior at the rate of 63% of each younger person (April 30)! Goodness, that is slightly better than each slave who was counted as 3/5ths of a person before the Civil War. Seriously, though, since women tend to live longer than men, wouldn't women for the first time in U.S. history each count for a higher percentage than men? I propose at least increasing the worth of each senior woman to 70% and reducing the value of each senior man to 56%. And since Asian, Hispanic, Inuit -- pick a category -- tend to live.

WASHINGTON - A key Republican senator, still not satisfied with White House answers on the attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Libya, said Sunday that he would try to delay Senate confirmation of President Obama's nominees for Defense secretary and CIA director. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on CBS ' “Face the Nation” that he would seek to block votes on Chuck Hagel as defense secretary and John Brennan as CIA director until he gets a better explanation of what the president himself was doing during the attack in September on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Being one of Chris Erskine's biggest fans, I am pleased to see his column in a more prominent position in the new section. My husband Tom and I enjoy all of his columns, but we especially relate to the softball ones, having had two daughters in Ponytail softball a number of years ago. Keep up the good work!
