Howie Mandel wore black high-top shoes - and nothing else - during a remote shoot for NBC's "America's Got Talent. " Krysten Ritter strolled around in the altogether, casually snacking and chatting on ABC's "Don't Trust the B - in Apartment 23. " And Ashton Kutcher greeted visitors on CBS' "Two and a Half Men" in shaggy shoulder-length hair and his birthday suit. These aren't clips from "Networks Gone Wild," but scenes from the recent broadcast season where instances of "full nudity" have skyrocketed.

Applause to producers Joshua Brand and John Falsey. "A Year in the Life" was such a joy to watch. I wish it would have lasted longer than six hours. It would make a wonderful series. I hope Falsey and Brand continue to make classic programs. April L. Rocha, Santa Monica

The first day of school, one of America's great communal experiences. Pencils are sharpened, backpacks bought and outfits laid out, found to be totally lame, OMG, and laid out again. But what today's kids in Los Angeles public schools will experience on Days 2 through 180 is significantly different from what their parents enjoyed when it comes to music, art, drama and field trips. For a variety of reasons, funds available to school boards for education in California have been devastated over the last 20 years, to levels some in the industry call the worst in U.S. history.

The PBS documentary "When We Were Young: Growing Up on the Silver Screen" might have been interesting and informative had it not been for the stupid and ridiculous narration. It was so insulting to the intelligence that I could stand only about 45 minutes of it. Anyone who lived through the era would know all about the material Maureen Stapleton was given to read. Compare that to the Richard Burton programs or the series on Hollywood that James Mason did. These were programs with substance that were filled with fascinating and little-known material.

The story by Lisa Mascaro was about a report the House Budget Committee (which Ryan chairs) released Monday on Washington's "duplicative and complex" array of benefits for the poor. Declared the headline: "Paul Ryan calls for cuts to anti-poverty programs. " The report didn't actually call for cuts, however.

I read with interest the article "Now Tourists Can Get Their Kicks and an Education at the Same Time" by Peter S. Greenberg, Aug. 18. I was amazed that no mention was made of Elderhostel, which has been a leader in education travel programs since 1975 when it was founded. With its programs in all 50 states, all 10 provinces in Canada and over 40 countries overseas, it has programs in over 1,000 different colleges, universities and other educational institutions. It had over 190,000 people participate in its programs last year and the number continues to grow.
