Re "UCLA to Protect Animal Research," Aug. 26 I wholeheartedly disagree with acting UCLA Chancellor Norman Abrams. I think it is reprehensible and morally wrong to torture another of God's creatures for our benefit, especially when the research results have been shown to be of questionable use to humans and it is essentially the same research that has been repeated for years. Abrams' comment that federal and state agencies regularly inspect such projects to ensure that animals are humanely treated is laughable.

Re "Teen Suicide and Feelings of Failure," Jan. 1: I am saddened and angry after reading about the tragic life and sad death of Velia Huerta Victorino. This poor soul was screaming out for help in the only way most adolescents know, but she was misunderstood or ignored and left to fend for herself. The only real chance she had was denied her by her absent and self-described devout Catholic father, who didn't believe in "giving kids drugs" and apparently sought religious counsel only after Velia's death when he was afraid she wouldn't see heaven.
