Malaria vaccine: An article in Tuesday's Section A about promising results from trials of an experimental malaria vaccine omitted the full name of a scientist who predicted that the vaccine, RTS,S, could be available as soon as 2012. He is Joe Cohen, vice president for vaccines for emerging diseases at GlaxoSmithKline. Cohen has worked on RTS,S since its inception 22 years ago.

The Dodgers are in the mess that they are in because of GM Ned Colletti. However, Joe Torre has done nothing to help the situation. His constant reliance on Scott Proctor in the bullpen and Mark Sweeney as the first hitter off the bench has cost the Dodgers many games. I guess it's a bit harder to work with a team that isn't blessed with Mariano Rivera coming out of the pen and pinch-hitters actually capable of swinging a bat. Jordan Klein Beverly Hills The Dodgers are still in the NL West race, but they could have saved a lot of money since their record would probably be similar under Joe Torre or Grady Little.

Re "Prosecutor Says Jackson Is on the Brink of Bankruptcy," March 12: Now that Michael Jackson's alleged financial plight has come to the fore, no doubt his next CD will contain songs like Ray Charles' old hit, "I'm Busted" and the all-time favorite, "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?"

I hope you guys are serious when you said last week that there would be no more Lavin-bashing letters (until next season, of course) except when: Either Eric Karros or Troy Glaus goes one for 35 and you can attribute this ineptitude to Lavin's UCLA association with the two grads. The Phoenix Suns' Toby Bailey, whom Lavin coached at UCLA, makes a half-court shot at the buzzer to eliminate the Lakers from the playoffs. At least, you can't blame Carlos Perez on Coach Steve.

Re "State Poet Overstated His Case," Oct. 19: I would say that Quincy Troupe, California's first formally selected poet laureate -- who resigned Friday after acknowledging he had taken a bit of poetic license on his professional resume, stating, "I deeply regret my ill-advised decision to include inaccurate information on my curriculum vitae" -- was being rather equivocal. I think a simple "I'm sorry I lied" would have sufficed. Gersten Schachne Northridge An ode to Gov. Davis: Roses are red Violets are blue Quincy Troupe pulled A fast one on you Joe Cohen Los Angeles

Surely there must have been some kind of sports news--soccer, high school football, coach bashing, etc.--that you could have run in the Oct. 20 sports section. Instead you again chose to run another vitriolic anti-Dodger piece by Cry-Baby Roger Kahn who still can't get over the fact that the Dodgers deserted Flatbush 43 years ago. Last time you ran a Kahn essay, it was an anti-Semitic blast at Walter Alston. This time he denigrates Peter O'Malley. Like I said last time, "Roger, get lost, ya bum."

After the three-game series at Anaheim, I wonder if other Dodger fans feel as I do, that most likely the right manager is managing the wrong team. JOE COHEN Los Angeles Regarding the Dodgers' current hidden-camera TV ads: What were they thinking? I can't believe that I am the only person who finds the sight of a young man wearing a Dodger jacket frightening an elderly woman into interrupting her meal and moving to another seat disgusting. MIKE KVAMMEN South Pasadena We Angel fans always knew that The Times slanted toward the Dodgers in its coverage, but Sunday's coverage took the cake.

The proposal to convert the LAUSD headquarters to a high school (Oct. 22) is not as farfetched as it might seem. I seem to recall the site on North Grand Avenue was once Central Junior High, which closed in June 1946, probably due to low enrollment, with most of the students relocating to Thomas Starr King Junior High, which I was attending at that time. What goes around comes around. JOE COHEN Los Angeles One issue is being overlooked in the Belmont Learning Complex site matter: Who polluted the area in the first place and why don't they pay to clean it up and monitor the site?
