Re "France is having a midweek crisis," Column One, Nov. 6 The controversy over French children having to attend class on Wednesdays brought to mind a quote by a friend - a teacher - who once said, "The mind can only absorb what punishment that the fanny can take. " Too many hours during a single sitting do not necessarily translate to productivity.

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?

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 "An area primed for a disaster," March 28 Unlike earthquakes, landslides like the one in Washington state can be detected, preventing loss of life. For decades, movements of large sloped land masses have been measured utilizing inclinometers that quantify the magnitude and geometry of soil movements at different depths. The measurements, combined with numerical modeling, produce a three-dimensional imagery of the subsurface soil mass and its directional movements. To prevent future Hazel Slide disasters, government entities should mandate that developers install monitoring systems that transmit data to the U.S. Geological Survey and state and local survey centers for analysis so any necessary alerts can be issued for evacuations.

Re "End of Blockbuster near," Business, Nov. 7 When I rented VHS movies from Blockbuster, the cartridges carried funny reminders telling customers to rewind their tapes. They included: "To play is human. To rewind is divine!," "Be a friend. Rewind when you reach the end," and "Just to remind, please rewind. Thanks. The end. " Blockbuster had been struggling in the DVD and video-game rental business thanks to the growth of Redbox and Internet-streaming services such as Netflix and YouTube.

Re "A truly loopy tax loophole," Column, May 3 It's deja vu all over again. A provision of Proposition 24 on the November 2010 ballot would have eliminated the option that multi-state businesses have to choose between two tax formulas. Proposition 24 was defeated.
