I think the 61 so-called Christian professionals would do more good if they were out protesting the rampant immorality of today's world--the murder, rape, theft--and were less concerned about what, after all, is only a movie. JAMES DALE Los Angeles

Over the past few years, James Badge Dale has quietly and effectively become one of the most versatile young actors working today. He was brilliantly sleazy as Michael Fassbender's womanizing boss in Steve McQueen's 2011 drama "Shame. " Last fall, he stole a brief but memorable scene from under the nose of Denzel Washington as a gaunt, cynical hospital patient dying of cancer in "Flight. " And this summer, he's demonstrating his skillfulness as Guy Pearce's ruthless henchman in "Iron Man 3," as the no-nonsense U.S. Army Ranger stationed in Korea who falls victim to zombies in "World War Z," and as the strong, silent and tough Texas Ranger Dan Reid, older brother of the lawyer (Armie Hammer)

The three articles on skiing that ran Jan. 26 could not be more dissimilar. The one about Grand Targhee, Wyo., was most impersonal, an almost "as told to" story by Richard Pietschmann. To a world traveler and long-time skier such as I, Jack Hanley's article on Chamonix, France, was obviously written by a man who knew his subject. But Frank Riley's story on Oslo, Norway, is nothing more than a rewrite of a handout from an international airline, plus a few travel brochures. Come on, Times, let's hear it from people who know what they are writing about.

Re "Scouting's error," Opinion, May 22 It boggles the mind that the Boy Scouts of America wraps itself up in this bigoted view of homosexual leaders when in many other ways it has always been very inclusive. James Dale's piece expresses the view of a gay Eagle Scout; in the May 21 Wall Street Journal, an Op-Ed article spoke to the absurdity of this whole mess, proposing that the Boy Scouts should be agnostic concerning sex and stick to the basic tenets of Scouting. The entire focus should be on the material inside the Boy Scout Handbook.

Jackson's "sore loser" attitude is making me feel ashamed of being a black man. He's a minister, for heaven's sake, and in no way qualified to run a country. He'd have to hire people to do it for him, and we've had enough of that misfortune. I haven't taken a poll among my fellow blacks, but I think many of us feel he should be utterly ignored, and forgotten. JAMES DALE Carson

How much longer are poor, unsuspecting people going to go on helping support these phony TV evangelists who make millions selling Jesus to the gullible, but obviously do not believe in God themselves? Swaggart is the latest forced to step down from his so-called "ministry," and one can't help wondering who will be next to do the same. Oral Roberts, are you listening? You may not consort with prostitutes, but you have your own greed to account for. JAMES DALE Long Beach

As a veteran of World War II, during which I gave almost five years of my time to help make the world safe for such draft resisters as David Wayte, I get fed up with their unreasonable attitude of refusing to register. I also do not understand why such men can't be drafted to do the work in the service as the WACS, WAVES, etc., did. All divisions have a headquarters where the paper work is done for the entire division, clerks, typists, etc., and these men are never actually in the front lines of warfare.

Prosecutors in the Randy Steven Kraft murder trial say a paper with 61 entries, found in his car trunk when he was arrested May 14, 1983, is a death list--Kraft's own score card of how many young men he had killed dating back to late 1971. Kraft's attorneys deny it is a death list, and call it meaningless information that will only inflame his jury. Kraft himself, in a 1983 interview, called the list nothing more than references to friends of his and his roommate at the time.

NEW YORK -- A former Boy Scout whose decision to fight his ouster from the organization for being gay went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court says the group's vote to permit gay youth but not gay Scout leaders is a "bit of a step backward. " James Dale spoke out after the 103-year-old organization lifted its ban on gay youth - but not gay adults - in a vote by about 1,200 members of its national council. The new policy takes effect Jan. 1. “It sends a mixed message to both gay and non-gay kids,” Dale, 42, of New York City, told the Los Angeles Times on Friday.

James Badge Dale has that familiar, handsome face that many a solid actor or high school sweetheart might have when you pass him at the coffee shop or traffic light. What you don't know is that you already love Dale -- or "Badge," as he's affectionately referred to. Soldiering on in HBO's "The Pacific," or his scene-stealing turn as Michael Fassbender's adulterous boss in "Shame," or the gaunt and haunting turn in Denzel Washington's "Flight," Badge is a chameleon who by this time next year will likely be a household name.

Late in HBO's World War II miniseries "The Pacific," there's a scene in a muddy, devastated Okinawa village in which Pvt. Eugene B. Sledge (Joseph Mazzello) enters a hut to find a mortally wounded Japanese woman who, with trembling hands, reaches for the muzzle of his automatic weapon, begging him to finish her off. Instead, he lays his gun down in the straw and gathers her in his arms, gently stroking her face until she finally slips away. "His humanity comes back to him in that moment," says Mazzello of the battle-hardened young Marine he plays in the series.
