Re “Welcome, Professor Bieber,” Opinion, March 25 Fortunately (or unfortunately) we live in a time and place of almost unlimited choices as to what we ingest in both mind and body. We have access to junk food and healthful food, Internet garbage and Internet gems, TV treasures and TV trash. “Reality” and “entertainment” shows fuel our fascination with stardom and almost anyone who is in the public eye. Our obsession with fame has no doubt contributed to the rise in narcissism (think Lance Armstrong and Lindsey Lohan)

Re “ Thomas Cassidy, longtime classical announcer ,” Obituary, Nov. 13 Thomas Cassidy was the absolute master of his craft. As someone once said, if you could see him (on the radio), he would probably be wearing a tux. He introduced the recording and then played it. He read the gas company's commercials and that was it. There'll never be another. Bill Simpson Palos Verdes More letters to the editor ...

Re "Police find pot plants," Aug. 22 On the front page of Wednesday's LATExtra section, there was a photo of many heavily armed, helmeted police officers. Are they after a murderer? An armed robber? A child molester? Goodness no; they arrested about 100 marijuana plants. I feel so much safer now.

Re "Putting the SAT in its place," Editorial, Sept. 26 It is astounding that colleges are ranked partly on the test scores students got before they ever came to the college. How about judging them on results, not on what people think of a place before they ever get there? Rory Johnston Hollywood ALSO: Letters: Some clarity on pot policy Letters: Freeway noise -- get used to it Letters: Driven up the wall by robo-calls

Re "Actor won 3 Emmys as star of 'The Sopranos,'" Obituary, June 20 One wonders how such a brutal character, Tony Soprano, was so appealing and liked by so many. It was James Gandolfini's kind eyes that betrayed him. Ken Johnson Pinon Hills, Calif. ALSO: Letters: Ethical research on chimps Letters: Abortion and the GOP agenda Letters: The problem with obesity advice

Re "NASA is target of doomsday anxiety," Dec. 20 NASA spokesman Dwayne Brown says he'll be glad when Saturday comes and the questions end. Personally, I expect Harold Camping to announce on Saturday that the Mayans miscalculated the date. Kymberleigh Richards Van Nuys ALSO: Letters: Dealing with Hamas Letters: A tantrum by the rich Letters: When dying isn't easy

Re "A link to change your life," Sept. 26 Meghan Daum echoed what Henry David Thoreau expressed more than 150 years ago: "The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation. " The cornerstone of happiness is a life that celebrates wisdom, virtue, magnanimity, selflessness and the search for truth without ulterior motives. The only love that never grows old is love of honor. Bruce Fein Los Angeles ALSO: Letters: There's Cruz, and there's Obama Mailbag: L.A. Unified's high-tech train wreck Letters: Boston's Menino did it; so can Garcetti
