Hey, ladies, the Beijing police department apparently doesn't think you're very good at driving. So they've singled you out to receive some, um, advice for when you get behind the wheel. Messages posted by the department on China's Twitter-like site Weibo reportedly have caused an uproar and are being labeled gender discrimination. Here's a sampling of the guidance: "Some female drivers lack a sense of direction. While driving, they often can't decide which road they should take .… Even for places they've been to several times, they still can't remember how to get there when driving themselves.” Women also might hit the brakes or the accelerator too sharply or forget to release the handbrake, the messages warn.

Sometimes you get a sign from above, a big red hand that says, "Stop -- Don't Walk." Such was the case one recent Friday night when I was standing on the corner of Crescent Heights and Sunset Boulevard. I had gone to see the band Treat & Berent at the Crooked Bar. The show had been a jazz-pop blowout, but as for meeting any female knockouts -- well, it had been a shutout. So I headed back to my parking spot across Sunset.

I really enjoyed reading "Drawing a Line in the Sand" (Aug. 26). I often joke with my mom that whenever my family made day trips to the beach in the mid- to late '60s, I felt like we were moving. If we had plans to go to the beach the upcoming Saturday, my mom and grandma began preparing days in advance. We took with us the makings for a complete lunch and dinner, two changes of clothes, plenty of towels, coolers with food, drinks, water to wash off with and water to drink, a huge pot to use as a makeshift sink, and umbrellas and chairs for the grown-ups.
