Sally Mann's photographs of her three, pre-teen - age kids vividly describe what it's like to be a child. In a dozen black-and- white pictures at G. Ray Hawkins Gallery, contradictions run wild. Playful games of dress-up contrast with touching images of absolute unself-consciousness. A solitary child's rich fantasy life reverberates against utter alienation.

Oops! I almost missed it. I am referring to Patt Morrison's May 30 column. I do like many of the things you are doing with redesigning the paper, but don't overdo it by eliminating pictures of the columnists. We longtime readers have become accustomed to responding to pictures of our favorite columnists and I, for one, miss them. Keep it interesting for the people who live here. Put the pictures back. Please! Bob Brach Desert Hot Springs

Ron Jude's "Lick Creek Line" is an essay in the less common sense of the term: an attempt, or effort. It doesn't build an argument or deliver much in the way of information to do so, but instead issues impressions, propositions toward a loose understanding of its ostensible subject, a fur-trapper in rural Idaho. The constellations of color photographs accumulate a kind of emotional heft, though more so in book form, as originally conceived, than on the wall, as at Gallery Luisotti, where the project is too abbreviated to grab hold.

Yo, Apple rumor mill followers: Stop obsessing over how many pins will be in the new dock connector of the iPhone 5, where the microphone will be located, and how much bigger the screen will be and prepare to laugh at yourself. On Monday, New York comedian Adam Sacks uploaded a video to YouTube with the tantalizing title “LEAKED Official Apple iPhone 5 Promo Video- Keynote 2012.” Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it is. The video is not real, but that doesn't mean it's not funny.

Additional observations have ruled out the chance that a recently discovered asteroid, believed to be about 1,300 feet long, could hit Earth in 2029, NASA scientists said this week. Last week, asteroid 2004 MN4 had been given a small chance of hitting Earth, based on observations this month and in June. Spacewatch Observatory near Tucson found faint pictures of the asteroid in images dating to March 15.
