Loyola Law School administrators announced Monday that U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) will give the commencement address at the 77th annual ceremonies May 17. Kerry is serving his third term as senator and is a member of several committees, including banking, housing, urban affairs, commerce, science and transportation, foreign relations, small business, and intelligence.

If ever a theme demanded an uncluttered, contemplative exhibition space, it is "The Spiritual Eye: Religious Imagery in Contemporary Los Angeles Art." What the show got is a busy lounge at the Loyola Law School. Art resides above sofas, clusters on columns and sometimes hangs so close to signs that you can't see the Pietas for the placards. Don't get me wrong. I'm for Loyola's enlightened effort to make its campus a place of visual interest and cultural importance.

And now for a word from one of the inhabitants (or is it inmates?) of Frank O. Gehry's "architecture"--in this case the Loyola Law School ("Grand Designs," May 3, by Elizabeth Venant). The interior of this building has all the warmth and charm of a cross between a mental hospital and a minimum-security prison. It lacks any attributes of a human habitat; it is a human warehouse. In the apt words of The Times' beloved urban good-taste maven, Sam Hall Kaplan, there is more to architecture than whether it photographs well.

If "spiritual art" belongs only in hushed galleries and not where there are other activities, how does Suzanne Muchnic explain the "Last Supper" in a dining room, or the Sistine Chapel, which is really a church (" Spiritual Eye' Lost at Loyola Law School," April 9)? Art is not a dead body to be dissected in a lab anymore than it is just another decoration like the wallpaper. I doubt the artists represented in the "The Spiritual Eye: Religious Imagery in Contemporary Los Angeles Art" exhibit at the Loyola Law School did their work solely to have it analyzed by an art critic.

Maybe I misread the facts in "Merchant's Rising Death Toll Raises Questions" (Feb. 22), but I hope it would seem reasonable to most people that two men who enter a jewelry store with guns drawn are not there to make a purchase. As a police officer, I far from condone vigilantism, but if Lance E. Thomas' most recent acts in defense of his business and life are looked upon by some as executions, then I suggest that all business owners close their doors immediately because armed robbery has just been deemed a justifiable act. How would Laura Levenson (criminal law teacher at Loyola Law School)

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court deliberated Wednesday on whether the Defense of Marriage Act, which denies legally married same-sex couples federal benefits, meets constitutional standards. The arguments over DOMA mark the second time the court has held a hearing related to same-sex marriage, with justices debating California's Proposition 8 on Tuesday. The court has released the audio recording and the transcript of the oral arguments, featuring persistent skepticism from liberal justices on whether DOMA, which was signed into law in 1996, is inherently prejudiced and thus invalid.
