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

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.

The strangeness and mystery of the Voynich Manuscript has inspired musicians and novelists. Not surprisingly, the work has also proved a springboard for visual artists, but the remarkable thing about the photographs by Miljohn Ruperto and Ulrik Heltoft now at Thomas Solomon is how they don't just feed off the manuscript's secrets and complications but build upon them to generate something odd, fantastic and mysterious in its own right. The Voynich Manuscript, in the collection of the Beinecke Library at Yale, dates from the 15th or 16th century.

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.

Redondo Beach Mayor Barbara Doerr wants professional and amateur shutterbugs to go out and take pictures of the city and its people on March 20. The 10 best pictures taken that day will be entered in a contest sponsored by the U. S. Conference of Mayors and could be used in a book called "A Day in the Life of America's Cities." Doerr said that the project especially wants photos that show "an imaginative exploration of the full range of Redondo's life."
