At this stage of "Lost,""%20mystery no one actually believed that John Locke would remain dead, but still, it's satisfying to see him alive again. That is, alive in the way that you and I are -- not in flashbacks, and not in the way that the ghosts of Charlie and Ana Lucia appear to Hurley or the ghost or some supernatural semblance of Christian Shephard roams the island.

Hey! What's going on here? I thought Calendar was a sanctuary from the wretched pages of Opinion. Look, so what if "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" didn't show up in a 12-year-old's copy of the Constitution until David Heimburger decided "happiness" was the same as "property" (Calendar Letters, July 14 and 21). And besides, didn't Jefferson steal that silly phrase from a Third Estate Englishman named John Locke? Let's unplug the word processors belonging to historical hackers and get on with the important business of idol worship.

One late summer morning in 1835, the people of New York City were greeted with the shocking news that life had been discovered on the moon. And not just an "animalcule" of the sort that was on display under a microscope at Scudder's American Museum at Broadway and Ann Street but a whole menagerie of celestial creatures: water birds, unicorns, beavers that walked upright, and a race of winged creatures dubbed "Vespertilio-homo, or man-bat."

Spoiler alert: TiVo viewers be warned. This article contains plot points from recent episodes. * IN the last two episodes of "Lost," John Locke told a few lies, killed an "Other," blew up a hatch full of communication devices and then set off more explosives in the Others' submarine to prevent anyone from leaving or arriving on the island. It's a far cry from the weeks he spent in a hole in the ground last season, punching computer buttons, only to emerge feeling like he wasted his time.

The chief executive of Martin Aviation has urged officials at John Wayne Airport to install television monitors at security gates and replace all locks, following reports that two of his employees gave out lock combinations. In a letter sent Thursday, Martin's Robert Volk said he told airport manager George Rebella that the county should scrap the push-button combination locks on all gates and install locks that are activated with magnetic or computerized cards.

Archbishop Roger Mahony of Los Angeles started a boycott campaign against sex-oriented films, books, journals, etc. (Part I, July 12). Personally, I am not interested in that type of material. I feel, however, that this is a free country and if people want to buy that trash, that is their right as free citizens. For centuries the Catholic Church had a list of forbidden books that the faithful should not read. In the past no book could be printed in Catholic countries without church permission.

Contrary to popular civil religious sentiment, this nation's Constitution was not framed "according to the truths and principles set forth by God in the Bible" (Platform, Jan. 7). It was founded on the idea of individual liberty, as expressed by English philosopher, John Locke. I fail to see any instances where God (or Jesus Christ) emphasizes individual rights as it has been emphasized by our Bill of Rights. Instead, the teachings of Jesus command us to love our neighbor (anyone to whom we can show mercy)

Having already proven it is the best in Southern California, the Oakridge Tennis Club will take on the nation, beginning today in Las Vegas. Playing in the USTA/Volvo Tennis League at the 3.5 skill level, the nine amateurs from Oakridge finished first in their Simi Valley-area league, then won the six-team Southern California sectional competition at UCLA early last month to qualify for this weekend's Volvo nationals. In the sectional final, Oakridge beat Flint Canyon, 3-2.

James Pinkerton (Column Right, May 27) argues that what our government needs is a dominant ideology that would organize our society around entrepreneurism. To show that we lack an ideology and practice merely ad hoc politics, he cites the examples of Democratic senators who oppose the programs of their own party in the interests, real or contrived, of their constituents. To dramatize the danger of mere ad hoc politics he quotes Thomas Hobbes to the effect that when every man wars against every man, life is "nasty, brutish and short."
