These include: * "The Worst Baby Name Book," by Bob Glickman (Andrews and McMeel: $6.95), which should help you steer clear of the real dogs (i.e., "Neville: even his imaginary friends will beat him up."). * "The Name Game: The Decision That Lasts a Lifetime," by Dr. Albert Mehrabian (Signet: $4.50). * "The New Age Baby Name Book," by Sue Browder (Warner Books: $4.

Several letters June 6 showed support for Sheriff Mike Carona's willingness to provide more permits to carry concealed weapons. These National Rifle Assn. advocates have been using bad data and telling half-truths for a while now, so this is not a surprise. Robert Davenport made reference to the infamous John Lott research, which gun advocates like to refer to. In analyzing the Lott Report, the Johns Hopkins University Center for Gun Policy and Research and criminologists concluded that the claims were unsubstantiated, the conclusions were implausible and the report used "incorrect and discredited methodology" and included errors in stating when concealed weapons laws were implemented in various states.

A 75-year-old man was committed to the county's mental health ward for observation Friday after trying to launch a garbage-strewn, rickety and unseaworthy sailboat into the waters at Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard, authorities said. Harbor officials, police and boatyard workers had repeatedly warned Robert Davenport, whose home is his 1979 Plymouth sedan, not to set sail in the 26-foot "Anni Rose" because it would sink.

You'd think 38 screenwriting awards would earn Westwood resident Robert Davenport more than a solitary writing credit (for the animated TV series "Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters"). But that's showbiz, folks. Davenport has written about 30 feature-length scripts since completing his master's in screenwriting from UCLA in 1999; eight have won major awards. The honors are legit -- not from the "everyone's-a-winner-for-a-fee" contests.

Levenson should stick to law and not make psychological judgments. She obviously has never looked down the barrel of a gun held by a potentially murderous robber. "Fear of one's life" does not mean shaking in one's boots, but faced with a possibility of death, one acts to ensure one's safety. The situation of being confronted with two armed robbers is de facto evidence of "fear of one's life" and should not be questioned publicly by a so-called "expert" from a local law school.
