On Monday, Booster Shots reported on a new study in the journal Pediatrics showing that many parents would choose genetic testing for their kids if such screening might show the risks of heart disease, cancer and other disorders that the kids face. The study noted that many of the parents who said they were interested in testing believed their results would be reassuring. But going through genetic testing can be an emotional roller coaster, even when the news is ultimately good, affecting people beyond the patient getting the test.

Re "Restaurateur Fatally Shot Inside Home," June 15. As if the murder of a young father and Ventura business owner were not tragic enough, now we are offered an appalling glimpse into modern suburbia--a place where the value of a man's home is apparently the measure of his soul. Jim Nelson's neighbor, Felipe Arambula, was shot to death in front of his wife and children in his Ondulando home during a robbery on Saturday. Nelson's comment to the paper: It is a very nice neighborhood but I'd say property values just went down about $10,000.

Sister Janet Harris' saintly work in consoling and comforting the innocent damned is all very admirable, but aren't her efforts much too late and off target? ("Sister of Mercy," Aug. 4) We should be focusing on the parents who cause the tragedies by having children before they are prepared to do a proper job of showing their offspring how to be happy, productive citizens. It is criminally irresponsible to underwrite inadequate youngsters who reproduce themselves indiscriminately simply because nature makes it possible.

They like to call it chess tennis. Forget the 100 m.p.h. serves and the blazing forehand shots that lift players off their feet. Those are for the kids, the would-be pros. For the top senior players, it's a lob here, a drop shot there, and a tough-to-reach angle shot when it's least expected. And there's always plenty of good-natured banter in between.
