Question: Recently I stayed at a luxury hotel. My stay was pleasant enough, but one day I was in the room when I heard a knock on the door. It was the hotel maid who had come to clean the room. I told her that I just had to grab my coat, that I was leaving, so she started to clean up. Then I noticed a pillow lying on the carpet. Instead of replacing the pillowcase with a new one, she simply moved the pillow back onto my bed. Too shocked to say anything, I wonder now if this a common practice, or am I in error to assume that a pillowcase should be replaced with a new one if it is on the ground?

I appreciated your Feb. 21 "Protocol Chiefs Put City's Best Foot Forward" article, for as director of the Institute on World Affairs at San Diego State University, I deal with numerous ambassadors and other diplomats each year when we host dinners in their honor and have them address the institute on international relations. In dealing with these diplomats, and the multitude of protocol issues, logistics and community connections, I know most assuredly how vital it is for San Diego to have a professional Office of Protocol.

The children of convicted murderer Dennis McGuire, whose execution by lethal injection took longer and seemed to be more painful than expected, plans to sue Ohio to block further use of the protocol. The decision to sue was announced Friday at a news conference, said attorney Jon Paul Rion, who represents the children who witnessed Thursday's execution at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville. The suit is expected to be filed next week in federal court, Rion said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Convicted murderer and rapist Dennis McGuire took more than 15 minutes to die, appearing to gasp during his execution Thursday by Ohio using a combination of drugs never tried before in the United States. The process, using a two-drug protocol, is the latest attempt by states seeking a way to execute prisoners in a constitutionally approved manner that avoids cruel and unusual punishment. The issue has been complicated because the manufacturer of a drug previously used made it unavailable for use in capital punishment.

Apparently not everyone got the memo about the NHL's stricter stance toward blows to the head. A few hours after general managers concluded meetings Wednesday that produced resolutions intended to enhance safety and minimize head injuries, the league suspended San Jose Sharks forward Dany Heatley for two games for elbowing Dallas forward Steve Ott in the head Tuesday. Heatley, who got an interference penalty on the ice, will forfeit $80,645.16 which will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Two NFL players violated league protocol on dealing with concussions in last weekend's wild-card playoff games, according to a document obtained by the Associated Press. The document was a letter sent by the chairmen of the NFL's head, neck and spine committee to all team doctors and trainers. In the letter, Drs. Hunt Batjer and Richard Ellenbogen say one player re-entered a game after suffering a possible concussion and another refused to leave the sideline. Although the letter doesn't identify the players, the AP said they were Green Bay tackle David Bakhtiari and New Orleans cornerback Keenan Lewis.

"Mission: Impossible" fans looking for a slice of Ethan Hunt's wild life can get behind the wheel of his car -- provided they've got $137,000 to burn.

The 19 wildland firefighters killed in Arizona appeared not to have established an escape route to a safe site large enough for the entire group, a forestry official said Monday. Safety protocols require crews to have a place to go in case fire overtakes them. That did not happen in the Yarnell Hill fire Sunday. The bodies of 19 members of the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew were found in or near their emergency fire shelters, leading officials to believe they were overrun by the wind-driven flames.

SAN FRANCISCO - California may be stymied for years to come in its efforts to resume executions as a result of a new court ruling, bureaucratic requirements and difficulty obtaining lethal injection drugs, advocates on both sides of the death penalty said Friday. Supporters of capital punishment urged Gov. Brown to challenge a state appeals court's unanimous decision against California's lethal injection protocol, even though an appeal could take years. They also called on the governor to introduce a new single-drug execution method for public vetting.

A reader has questioned an observation in a Times editorial on Sunday that Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Roman Catholic archbishop who will deliver a benediction at this week's Republican convention,  "should have followed protocol and allowed a local and lower-profile cleric to do the honors. " The reader wrote that "the editorial claims that the cardinal usurped the right of the local bishop (the bishop of the St. Petersburg Diocese) to deliver the benediction, while the cardinal himself stated that he had consulted the bishop, Robert Lynch, who agreed to defer to the cardinal.
