I was disgusted to read Randy Harvey and Mark Heisler's journalistic 1-2 punch in support of lack of accountability [June 25]. I am in my early 40s and was raised to believe that, with rare exception, we are all blessed with the free will and ability to make choices. That is why it never crossed my mind for even a moment to blame anyone other than the idiots themselves who destroyed and vandalized property for the riot outside Staples Center. However, true to form the "media elite" can't see it that way. Mr. Harvey ridiculously analogizes the Staples Center rioters to the downtrodden peasants of 18th-century France who stormed the monarch's palace when he equates broadcasting the game on an outdoor giant video screen to the comment by Marie Antoinette, after being told her people were starving and had no bread, to "Let them eat cake."

Robert W. Bliss has always fancied himself a futurist. It began in second grade in 1944 when he read that the reduced gravity on the moon would allow a man to jump 26 feet. "I found that fascinating as a 7-year-old, so I developed a real love for science fiction and what the future might hold," says Bliss, 61, who teaches computer systems at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo.
