Karen Stabiner's comments about "Accidentally on Purpose" by Michael York (In Brief, April 5) were absolutely ludicrous. She missed the whole point of it! This sensitive, revealing book deserves, requires and abundantly rewards a careful reading. Michael York's amazing vocabulary and insightful descriptions kept my highlighter busy throughout the entire reading of this marvelous book. VICKI CROFOOT IRVINE

Ever since Granada Hills Kennedy opened in 1971, it has been known to produce lots of baseball-playing brothers. Tagliaferri, Serr, Miranda, Avlas, Kane, Pinto, Ramirez, Sanchez, Bourne - they are just a few of the families that helped propel Kennedy to seven City Section championships. But no brother combination comes close to pulling off what Nick and Estevan Rodriguez did this month in a home game against Granada Hills. Batting third and fourth in the starting lineup, Nick, a senior shortstop, and Estevan, a junior first baseman, hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs.

Re: "Inside Washington" (Dec. 24), President-elect George W. Bush and his team of new officials should start their term by visiting the sites the writer suggests. They highlight the capital's diversity, which mirrors the nation's. Touring the story's destinations--and remembering the values they highlight--can help ensure that our officials' hearts stay warm with proper humanity. CALVIN NAITO Los Angeles

A cyclist whose right leg was partially amputated after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver near Griffith Park last year said he has a new mission in life. Damian Kevitt was left wounded, but he remains resilient as he works to shed light on a traffic-safety issue plaguing several Los Angeles County cities - hit-and-run collisions. "It's not only about me. An entire city is starting to galvanize around the idea that it's unacceptable to hit and run," he told Times Community News.

Thank you for the fine article on Iseo, Italy ("3 Idylls in Italy's Lake District," May 12). My husband and I just returned from a trip to Europe, and the highlight was our stay in Iseo! We had never heard of it before reading the article. PRUDY M. ZOROTOVICH San Pedro

Thank God for composer Samuel Barber. Permeation through my living room of the haunting strains of his 50-year-old classic, "Adagio for Strings," at each "Platoon" salvo, salvaged an otherwise artless Oscar evening. My vote for serendipitous highlight of the night goes to that late American composer. Wouldn't he be surprised? FRANK L. BURKE Los Angeles

 Indiana-bound quarterback Alexander Diamont of Venice just posted his 2013 highlight video, and one of the highlights reveals his dancing skills after a run. The Hoosiers would be happy if he repeats that performance.

I don't approve of your article promoting tourism of Spain ("Travel Insider," May 10). Even the picture and its caption were awful: a bull getting ready to be brutalized in the ring. Are you calling this a "highlight" for travelers? FLAVIA SAYNER Beverly Hills

A big thank you to L.A. Times Travel for a magical road trip I took this month. Inspired by Kenneth Turan's 2007 Monument Valley, Ariz., article ["Quiet on the Set," March 4, 2007] and Karl Zimmermann's La Posada article ["Make Tracks for La Posada, Nov. 9, 2008], I drove around northern Arizona and a bit of Utah for a week. The first highlight was my stay at La Posada (Mary Colter's gorgeous Harvey hotel in Winslow, Ariz.), where it snowed overnight. I loved visiting the Hubbell Trading Post near Ganado and staying in Chinle to visit Canyon de Chelly.

Shirley Slater validated her expertise when she included Dozier's Grocery and Market in Fulshear, Texas, even though Fulshear is quite a ways outside of her mapped area ("Bluebonnets and Barbecue," April 19). When we were living in Sugar Land, many times the highlight of our week was a delicious barbecue feast at Dozier's. I'm glad to read they still are in business. MYRON ELLIOTT Ventura

KABUL, Afghanistan - The fatal shooting of three Americans in a charity hospital Thursday punctuated a dismal new trend that has emerged in the waning months of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan: Just as many foreign civilians are being killed as troops. The brazen attack by a police officer at the CURE International hospital in Kabul, which serves 37,000 Afghans a year, shocked even this war-weary city and seemed likely to diminish the already dwindling population of foreigners working in the capital.

We've come back from a 10-day visit to England and Scotland. To see as much of what we wanted to, without driving ourselves, we decided to use the services of Garden of England Tours. John Turner was mentioned in Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips several years ago (and again April 12). John drove us on three days of personally devised tours that were the highlight of our vacation. We second the original recommendation. LEONARD and RUTH KING Malibu

Your May 6 article provides timely and much needed publicity for the Conejo Valley Botanical Garden. With a view to the city and the surrounding countryside and the more distant but beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, the garden has the potential to be a center of attraction for Thousand Oaks dwellers. However, it is underdeveloped and probably as a result underutilized. It is my hope that more will be written about the garden in The Times in the near future to highlight its attractions as well as to emphasize the urgent need for monetary donations and volunteers.
