More people are flocking to downtown Los Angeles - and they have more money to spend, downtown advocates declared as they unveiled the results of a new study. "We have more people. They're making more money. They are more educated. And they are demanding more," said Carol Schatz, president and chief executive of the Downtown Center Business Improvement District. Schatz based her comments on an online survey promoted through community newspaper ads, postcards and door hangers.

Attention single guys: do not buy that mail truck. Aside from wonky steering wheel placement and the mistrust of dogs everywhere, no vehicle on the road today is less likely to be driven by an attractive man than a mail truck, according to a recent survey by Insure.com.

Re "Your Way for the Highways?" Dec. 14: As a traveling salesman in Southern California, I was very interested in participating in Caltrans' online survey. Once online, I discovered that the carefully worded questions, with their pre-selected answers, did not allow for any comment. Oh, I could have commented on rest areas, but I don't have too much chance to use any in L.A. or Orange counties, as there are none. I wonder what this latest boondoggle is costing taxpayers? Maybe it comes from the same person who designed the exits for the carpool lanes?
