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 "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.

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 "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.

Re "Army general gets no jail in sex case," March 21 Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair is a sexual predator who has been afforded access and cover by the authority of his position and rank within the military. The slap on the wrist he received sends a powerful message throughout the military that the good-old boys' club is alive and well. Sinclair's lenient punishment is an outrage that we can't afford to tolerate and a clear indication that justice can't be served within the military when it comes to sexual predation.
