In his article, "Yeaaaaa arrrrgg ghhhh!!!" (Opinion, Feb. 20), and choice of accompanying cartoons, was Joel Pett commenting on Howard Dean or the sorry state of journalism today? An irrelevant scream is easy to caricature. It is far more difficult to incisively comment on the enormous problems facing our society today. Hadassa Gilbert Los Angeles

Edvard Munch's masterpiece "The Scream" goes back on display in Oslo, Norway, this week for the first time since it was stolen four years ago, but it has suffered permanent damage, museum officials said Wednesday. Masked gunmen stole the work and another Munch masterpiece, "Madonna," in a brazen daylight raid on the Munch Museum in August 2004. Police recovered the paintings, considered priceless, more than a year later. Two men have been convicted and sentenced. The two works show signs of damage despite extensive restoration.

Regarding Madeleine Brink's letter about the pain lobsters feel when cooked ("Lobsters' Pain," Oct. 22), I would hope to put her heart at ease. I have witnessed the cooking of many lobsters. Never have I heard a "scream" when they are put into the water. Further, all movement stops within a second or two of the lobster hitting the water, leading me to believe that death comes almost instantaneously. The thought that they "live up to 12 minutes in boiling water" is ridiculous. I don't believe a grown man or gorilla could do that.

If I hear or read that self-centered, self-serving term "self-esteem" one more time, I'm going to scream. Can't we have self-respect? PATTI GARRITY Manhattan Beach

Balboa Park is for ALL the people, not just the homeless (bums, alcoholics, drug users). The homeless activists are attempting to get the San Diego City Council to heap another responsibility upon the taxpayers of San Diego. Don't let them. Scream long and loud. JAMES DAUGHTERY, San Diego
