Re “Obama's Keystone trap,” Opinion, April 22 Jonah Goldberg has a point. On one side there are the global warming deniers; on the other are the hard-line environmental activists. One side refuses to accept there is a problem; the other demonizes those who raise questions. Environmentalists who consider global warming an emergency should support the construction of safe, reliable nuclear power plants and the continued development of natural gas resources to replace petroleum and coal.

Thank you, Neal Gabler for a sane, reasoned analysis of the difference between fair and so-called balanced journalism ("Moore's Ax Falls on a Derelict Media Too," Commentary, July 7). I believe there is a right-wing plot to take over so-called reporting of "news," in particular the television and radio networks and outlets, from which much of our population gets its information; witness the screaming heads of Fox News and the suppression of a program such as Ted Koppel's "Nightline" for reading the names of our children killed in Iraq.

It was an innocent question. All Paul Olden wanted to know was, what did then-Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda think of Dave Kingman's performance against the Dodgers that afternoon in Dodger Stadium. More specifically, what was Lasorda's opinion of it? The towering Kingman had just hit three home runs in a 10-7 Chicago Cubs victory on May 14, 1978, the last a three-run shot against Rick Rhoden in the top of the 15th inning.

Reading "Apathy keeps me pretty busy" by Peter Mehlman (Opinion, July 11) had me laughing after the first paragraph and kept me laughing all the way through. It was refreshing to read a deliberately humorous article in the midst of all the weighty problems of the world. It made my day. Lois Vackar Huntington Beach Not having an opinion is an opinion.
