Should people have the right to deny historical fact? The Times' editorial board thinks so, writing on Dec. 21 that a proposed law in France to criminalize denial of the Armenian genocide would be a "monstrous violation of free speech. " Reader Janet Gross of Los Angeles took issue with the editorial board's view that genocide denial is an opinion worthy of free-speech protection: "The right to the opinion that the Armenian genocide in 1915 perpetrated by the Turks never happened should be protected?

In a recent speech at the National Press Club, Katie Couric expressed somber disapproval of the jingoistic excesses after 9/11. Among the things that vexed her: "The whole culture of wearing flags on our lapel and saying 'we' when referring to the United States. " From what I can tell, nobody among the journalistic swells bothered to ask, "Who isn't 'we,' Kemo Sabe?" I don't want to revisit those supposedly Orwellian flag pins, which sat so heavily on so many journalistic lapels.

We rounded a bend and the verdant panorama of the Napa Valley, where 34,000 acres of land are planted to grapevines, spread out before us. "Is this the best place in the world to grow wine grapes?" my friend asked. I said the Napa Valley was one of the blessed places in the world where Cabernet Sauvignon grows well, but other grape varieties make good wine too. There's equally wonderful Riesling. Chardonnay, of course, thrives and there's plenty of Pinot Noir.

Ask average people what could be improved in California's school system and you're likely to get a variety of responses. The proposed solutions run the gamut from "more money for teachers" to "smaller class size" to "parents need to get more involved." None of the above answers are incorrect, and various groups in education all are justified in their frustrations. Teachers are under pressure to produce high test scores often with minimum resources and are rewarded with an inadequate salary.

December 11, 2005 | Samantha Bonar, Samantha Bonar is a Times staff writer.
ROTTWEILERS should be profiled. Same goes for pit bulls. It has nothing to do with the color of their fur and everything to do with the content of their character. These dog breeds should be regulated because they are powerful, unpredictable and dangerous. I used to argue that there are no bad dogs, only bad owners. I defended such breeds as Rottweilers and pit bulls as unfairly maligned.
