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.

Kyle A. Coumas was drawn to anything that involved adventure, said his high school English teacher, Danny Dunne. Perhaps it was destiny for a boy who was named after a heroic figure in the first "Terminator" movie. His parents adored the character of Kyle Reese, a resistance fighter and the father of John Connor, the hero of the later Terminator movies, and they chose Reese's first name for their only son. In high school, Coumas, of the Central California community of Lockeford, southeast of Sacramento, loved reading "Beowulf" -- drawn to the story of the hero and ancient warrior.

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.
