I see the Dodgers are pursuing outfielder Cory Snyder to solve the problem at third base. How about Barry Bonds to solve the problem at shortstop, too? BILL REESE Westwood

Thank you for printing Jim Arnold's Voices treatise (Jan. 29) on "You're Welcome" versus "No Problem." I know it was not a problem, so I hope "I'm welcome." Roy W. Rising Valley Village

I commend you for publishing "In the No-Daddy Culture, Pity the Kids" by Donna Britt (Commentary, Sept. 8). This column draws attention to a major problem in our society. By pointing out the very strong correlation between the presence or absence of a father and the incarceration rate of young males, Britt takes a very positive step toward attacking the problem. In contrast, the publishing of statistics breaking down incarceration rates by race is a very destructive practice, which does not help in solving the problem.

When Rebecca Soni took down one of the hallowed barriers in swimming - becoming the first woman to go under 2 minutes and 20 seconds in the 200-meter breaststroke - the moment resonated on multiple levels. Not only did her star turn come on the world stage, at the London Olympics, the modest Soni became the first American swimmer to repeat a gold-medal performance in the breaststroke, winning in 2:19.59. Four years prior, Soni upset the heavily favored Leisel Jones of Australia to own the podium at the Beijing Olympics in the 200 breaststroke.
