Would something be gained if we didn't dress in a manner dictated by our professional roles? Individuality, perhaps? A more colorful, better-decorated work environment? Consider the television newswoman. Her wardrobe normally consists of mannish shirts, big-shouldered blazers and a glut of accessories. How proper, how corporate, how boring. And how out of touch with current style. If anyone's bored at KTTV, clothes can't be blamed.

Don't believe the hype! Last night's performance by Paul Simon and Paul McCartney at the Adopt-a-Minefield benefit wasn't their first appearance together. We hear that McCartney joined Simon onstage Wednesday at the Greek Theatre for a rendition of the Beatles classic "I've Just Seen a Face."

Kat Von D's breakup with ex-fiance Jesse James, the former Mr. Sandra Bullock, is playing out in operatic fashion over the airwaves and the Internet. The tattooed "L.A. Ink" star made headlines for checking out of a "Good Day LA" interview Wednesday after her relationship with James was mentioned while she sat backstage, and engaged afterward in a back-and-forth via Twitter with the show's host, Jillian Barberie Reynolds. But -- counterintuitive though it may seem -- when it comes to breakups, women actually fare better than men. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior found that men suffer emotionally more than women do after a romantic relationship ends.

Why do TV news readers feel they must be "sexy"? They are there to impart information, not use my time to develop themselves as a "personality." I was glad to read in The Times ["Anchors Take a Sexy Turn," by Greg Braxton, April 14] that I am not the only one in Southern California to think that some local news stations have gone too far. Perhaps that's why I've stopped watching them: because of their lack of professionalism. Sheri Benge Corona There is no room for a sex kitten in the newsroom.
