Phil Berardelli makes some interesting points in his article ("The Lean: It's an Angry World Out There," Aug. 9), but the driving posture he describes is at least 22 years old. When I learned to drive in Ohio in 1972-'73, it was called the "Detroit Lean" and we saw it often. (In fact, Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, herself an Ohio girl, refers to it in the hit "Brass in Pocket.") Berardelli is right about the message The Lean is sending: This is a driver who thinks he's cool and who doesn't care about anyone or anything in his way. I haven't seen it much lately--maybe because you can't do it with a shoulder restraint buckled up, but I always wondered: Do they adjust the mirrors so they can still see out from down there?

DALLAS - Nick Bonino has been a part of 28 comeback wins with the Ducks this season. Sunday night was the steepest - and most significant - yet. Bonino lifted the Ducks to a 5-4 overtime victory over the Dallas Stars as top-seeded Anaheim clinched a demanding first-round Western Conference playoff series, four games to two Bonino's goal, 2 minutes 47 seconds into sudden death, capped a rally from a two-goal deficit in the final 130 seconds of...

There is a sign on the east side of Oxnard Boulevard, near Gonzales Road, which has a "cracked" schoolhouse along with the words: "Oxnard--the home of unhappy teachers." I see this sign several times throughout the week. Each time I see it, I get a very distasteful, discouraged feeling for the message it is delivering to our children. We as adults understand that the teachers are unhappy with their paychecks. If this is the case, then I think the teachers should do something in their classrooms that causes the district, the board and the parents to have complete knowledge and confidence that they deserve the pay hike that is being asked for. There needs to be improvement.

Justin Williams reached back and delivered some of his Game 7 playoff magic for the Kings in Game 4. For the Kings, it might as well have been Game 7. Justin Time. Or should that be Just In Time? With the Kings facing playoff elimination against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night, Williams, who had been without a point in the first three games, scored twice in the Kings' 6-3 victory over the Sharks in Game 4 at Staples Center. San Jose leads the best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series, three games to one. Game 5 will be on Saturday in San Jose.

It would be hard to find a more fitting place for the seating of the Palestinian delegation at the U.N. (July 8) than next to the institution closest to God (the Vatican) and the noble country (Switzerland) that sends its soldiers to guard the above institution. Sounds like a perfect fit.

I cannot help but be amused by the contention that President Bush was "conned" by Congress into raising taxes. Are we to understand that our President does not read the bills Congress sends him? SAMUEL MIKES, Santa Monica

I wholeheartedly commend the Anaheim Planning Commission for approving Pointe Anaheim. This project will bring jobs, tourists and much-needed tax dollars to our city. This vote sends a loud and clear message to our community: Disney does not control Anaheim. MANNY ONTIVEROS Anaheim

Any Chicago music fan of the '80s and '90s would acknowledge the huge contributions that Frankie Knuckles made to that city's (and American) culture with his blend of disco, electronic music and gay-friendly nightlife. That includes the city's most famous expat: President Obama.   After Knuckles' death last month , the president wrote a condolence letter to his family and friends. DJ and manager David Morales, whose agency Def Mix represented Knuckles, posted it to Facebook this morning.

Saying that better schools are critical for California's prosperity, GOP gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari proposes changing the way education is funded, making traditional schools more like charters and increasing online learning. "We must reject the status quo," the former U.S. Treasury official says in a 33-page policy paper set for release Tuesday. He calls for money to be sent directly to the state's 10,000 public schools rather than to their districts. He would throw out much of the state's education code, which governs the operation of schools, and effectively allow most schools to operate under the same rules as charters.

When his mother begins getting serious about her new boyfriend, 15-year-old Miles Adler-Hart does what any good citizen of L.A. would do: He hires a private detective. "Casebook," the sixth novel by Mona Simpson, focuses on divorce and its aftermath through the eyes of Miles, who himself is a budding expert in espionage. The book opens with him at 9 lying in wait under his parents' bed gazing up at the box springs' "gray dust towers, in globular, fantastic formations. " He hopes to find out if he'll be allowed to watch the TV show "Survivor," but he learns much more than he bargained for. His father admits his attraction to other women, and his mother reveals that she is deeply unhappy.

KEY MOMENT: In the blooper reels, this one will live on. The Diamondbacks had the potential winning run on third base in the ninth inning, and Dodgers catcher Tim Federowicz stood up for the intentional walk. But reliever Chris Withrow threw the ball over the head of a catcher standing up - yes, a wild pitch on an intentional walk. That would have been the play that cost the Dodgers the game, had Juan Uribe not forced extra innings with a home run in the bottom of the ninth. Instead, Aaron Hill's two-run single off Chris Perez in the 12th inning won the game for Arizona.
