A federal judge in Boston ruled that a veterans group can bar homosexuals from its St. Patrick's Day parade this year because the event is billed as an anti-gay protest. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf said calling the parade a protest against previous court orders that allowed homosexuals to march gives the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council the right under the First Amendment to exclude gays. Gays marched in 1993 under a state judge's order.

A federal judge rejected a bid by Microsoft Corp. to get letters that might help it fight European Union antitrust allegations and avoid more than $2 million in daily fines. Microsoft's subpoena against Novell Inc. "would circumvent and undermine the law of the European Community concerning how a litigant may obtain third-party documents," U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf in Boston wrote. Microsoft must comply with EU procedures and not seek help in U.S. courts, Wolf said.

--Christmas had become ho-ho-hum for Mary and Laurens Moore, what with their children being married and gone. But that all changed for the Gaffney, S. C., couple on Dec. 14, when the Moores answered a knock at their door to discover a tree about eight inches tall with a bird perched on top. The unsigned card attached read, "On the first day of Christmas . . . ." The next night, the Moores found two Christmas tree ornaments. The third day, it was three chocolate kisses, and so on.

Both Don Shirley's Aug. 14 review of Mark Wolf's "Another American: Asking and Telling" and Phil Cooke's Counterpunch ("As Plays Get Preachy, the Story Sometimes Gets Lost," Aug. 20) miss the point. Each year the U.S. military fires more than 1,000 people because of their sexual orientation. Having interviewed 200 victims of military discrimination, Wolf humanizes their stories and explains how a government institution has destroyed their lives. If such storytelling does not move the debate forward, then what will?

"Damage From the Alert System Is Alarming" (Commentary, Jan. 19) is right on the mark. Crying wolf too often causes no one to believe you when the wolf finally comes. Unfortunately, I fear that the alert system will be with us for a long time. A homeland security agency will keep finding new "threats" to justify periodically raising the level -- and thus its existence. Likewise, the Transportation Security Administration will continue to claim that confiscating knitting needles from old ladies and Medals of Honor from veterans are preventing hijackings.

Columbia University won dismissal of lawsuits by the biotechnology industry over a patent for gene-altering technology that forms the basis of all biotech drugs. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf in Boston ruled that Columbia's pledge in September not to sue or seek additional royalties from Thousand Oaks-based Amgen Inc., Cambridge, Mass.-based Biogen Idec Inc., South San Francisco-based Genentech Inc. and other companies eliminated their right to challenge the patent.
