It may seem premature to plan next year’s diversion, but that's exactly what you must do if you plan to stay at Yosemite National Park ’s coveted High Sierra Camps. The good news is that the deadline for entering the lottery that will determine whether you get your dates has been extended to Nov. 20. It was originally Monday, Nov. 1. Five camps occupy idyllic sites in the backcountry to the north and south of Tioga Pass Road. They consist of dormitory accommodations in basic tent cabins, a hot shower at most locations and family-style dinners and breakfasts.

Thank you for your article on multiple sclerosis (Jan. 6), especially appreciated because this was the second article in recent days on this subject. More exposure of what is known is important. Having a son who has been subjected to the physical damage caused by MS, I have often wondered when MS will receive the appropriate attention in research and other accommodations. As the article stated, they do not even know the cause, even though there has been some research. The numbers in the article may be misleading if one only glances at the subheading indicating Alison Caldow's 59,814 waiting list number.

I was treading water at an ad agency in Toronto when I spied an unusual ad in the morning paper. It was an announcement from the U.S. government recruiting able-bodied Canadians to apply for a lottery to enter the U.S. legally with a resident alien, or green, card. I took the bait and signed up. Fast-forward two years. I arrived home from work on a miserable winter afternoon and found a large envelope in my mailbox. The U.S. Department of Immigration was inviting me to live in the United States!

According to "Boeing Overruns on Space Station Near $1 Billion" [Feb. 23], getting a government contract is akin to winning the lottery, except that you don't even have to win to collect. Boeing has cost overruns of $1 billion and will receive $181.4 million in bonuses. Does this strike anybody as odd? Can someone tell me what this bonus is for? Do you get bonuses for bad management, bad planning, underbidding, lying, stealing, 11% cost overruns? Wow. Our government sure is a generous institution.
