Re "Skiing accident has snowballed into a public dispute," Jan. 2 Scott Swimm's mother ignores the fact that her son seriously injured David J. Pfahler and faults Pfahler for seeking reimbursement for his medical expenses. She asks, "What kind of a message are we sending to our children?" I pose the same question to the Swimms. What message are they sending their son by refusing to pay for injuries he caused? Parents should teach children to accept responsibility -- not shirk it. Arlene Friedman Beverly Hills

In "Nothing Private About This Passion" (Arts Notes, Jan. 19), Scott Timberg ridicules the efforts of well-known local artists, some of whom have children in private schools, to raise money for public school arts programs. I'm sorry that Mr. Timberg has such a hang-up about successful artists and their lifestyles ("Lexus liberalism"). What does it matter which schools their kids attend, or if they have any kids? The point is that without a communitywide effort, our society will raise a generation of children largely ignorant about the arts, to the impoverishment of us all. Apparently the artists mentioned in the article recognize that, even if Mr. Timberg does not. Bonnie Sloane Los Angeles

In his column "To Build a Better America, Pack Heat" (Jan. 9), Scott Harris cites an NRA-lauded study that argues that concealed handguns would have spared the lives of 1,570 murder victims since 1992. "Shabby social science" is how another expert dismisses this study. It is worse than that. It is a scurrilous attempt to float gun advocacy on a sea of blood. As Harris notes, there were fewer murders in Florida yet double the rate in West Virginia [after enactment of permissive carry laws]
