Sweet Revenge: Prince Charles once attacked one of James Stirling's buildings as looking like a 1930s radio. But the British architect, who designed the new science library at UC Irvine, can feel vindicated. Last month he won one of the world's richest art prizes, the Praemium Imperiale Prize for architecture. The prize, given by the Japanese, carries an award of $170,000.

Re "The Correct Rx to Target Malpractice," Commentary, March 15: In his highly flawed column, William B. Schwartz concedes limiting lawsuits "may help keep premiums low." He then goes on to inform us that should malpractice lawsuits be permitted against HMOs, a result of higher premiums resulting from a flood of lawsuits is "highly improbable." The basis of his entire argument rests on the assumption that only valid lawsuits will be filed because attorneys will not file lawsuits that are not winnable.

Letter writer B. Meredith Burke would like us to believe that continuance of the current immigration rate is a "frightening prospect" (Jan. 16). This is based on the assertion that the current U.S. population is nearly double the "maximum sustainable carrying capacity level estimated by ecologists." I'm curious how Burke and these ecologists square this with the reality that the air and water are much cleaner than they were 30 years ago, food and other resources are as plentiful as they have ever been and our quality of life is second to none.

Re "Retirement Plans: a Wider Field," editorial, July 21: Voluntary contributions to 401(k) plans and traditional IRAs are tax deferments with the lost revenue of today being made back in spades when distributions are made in one's retirement years. These tax deferments are a great hedge for the government against the inevitable bust that the retirement of the baby boomers will create. As for those living from paycheck to paycheck being left out of the House bill [raising contribution limits]
