Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin contemplated suicide twice in 2013, according to the report released Friday by independent investigator Ted Wells. The Wells report, in the works since November, identifies Dolphins offensive linemen Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey as the perpetrators of systematic harassment and bullying of Martin and others. The report said Martin developed “an odd but seemingly close” friendship with Incognito, and participated in off-color jokes to fit in. According to a psychologist retained by Wells, such behavior “is consistent with the behavior of a victim of abusive treatment.” Martin walked away from the Dolphins midway through the season, and Incognito was subsequently suspended for three months.

The investigator looking into the abrupt departure of Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin released his months-long report Friday, concluding that three starters on the offensive line "engaged in a pattern of harassment" directed not only at Martin but other players and an assistant trainer. The 144-page report, prepared by independent investigator Ted Wells, identifies linemen Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey as the instigators in the locker room. Incognito, a Pro Bowl guard who recently finished a three-month suspension, is a free agent and isn't expected to return to the Dolphins.

If you have any interest in the complex and nuanced dynamics of workplace bullying and harassment, you must sit down with the newly released report about what, exactly, happened in and out of the Miami Dolphins locker room that led Jonathan Martin to walk away from the team halfway through the season last year. The 144-page report is a masterpiece of evenhandedness, produced by a team of attorneys led by Ted Wells, whose New York litigation firm was retained by the NFL to investigate the circumstances around Martin's departure and his subsequent accusations against his teammates.

I want to commend you on a fine article about Trumps ("The Last Tea Time," Sept. 13). I, too, am saddened to see such a culinary legacy depart from Los Angeles' restaurant scene. Michael Roberts' creative genius and incessant energy will certainly be missed. One curious point that was raised was that Trumps catered to the Democrats in Los Angeles while Jimmy's serves as the Republicans' restaurant of choice. Let me take the opportunity to point out our bipartisan business practice of welcoming both the Democrats and Republicans alike.

I'm a Republican, voted for George W. Bush in 2000, and now plan to vote for John Kerry this November. I was completely and utterly disappointed by Bush's performance in the debate. I've never seen such a sorry lack of forward thinking. Though I'm not a huge Kerry advocate, at least he sounded smart enough to do the job. Charles Parlapanides Los Angeles The Kerry message: "Whatever you can do, I can do better!" That's your plan, John? Jerry Mazenko Garden Grove After watching the first presidential debate, I find myself even more convinced that Kerry would be a more effective and responsible president than Bush.

Days after the NFL said it was ready to make history by welcoming its first openly gay player, a report indicates that one team in the league promoted an intolerant locker room culture that harassed a player to the brink of suicide. Three Miami Dolphins players used "racial slurs and other racially derogatory language" as well as "homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching" to bully teammate Jonathan Martin as well as another player and an assistant trainer, both unnamed, according to independent investigator Ted Wells, who filed his report to the league on Friday.
