As reported in "Kerry Moves to Revive His Campaign" (Nov. 22), Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) said that Americans need a president who offers "answers, not just anger; solutions, not just slogans." Hey, senator, that is a slogan. Richard Stehr Los Angeles

In Zedd's latest club number, "Find You," he implores the listener to "turn up your night. " The Russian-born DJ and producer's electro-house number is a quintessential dance club anthem, but there's also something more at work here than just the same old party mantra. The lyric "turn up your night" also happens to be the slogan of a new Bud Light Platinum campaign. The song (featuring vocals by Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant) is the lead single on the "Divergent" soundtrack, and the music video for "Find You" costars bottles of the beer.

Who knows what danger lurks in your plumbing? If you grew up in Southern California after 1965 and watched any of the major TV channels, it's likely you know the answer: "Adee do!" Those words were drilled into pop-culture posterity by a series of campy commercials that played day and night for decades thanks to Jack Stephan, a flamboyant entrepreneur with a flair for marketing who founded two of the region's most heavily advertised plumbing companies. "He was the Cal Worthington of plumbing," Jack Stephan Jr. said of his father, who died of natural causes Saturday at Torrance Memorial Medical Center.

It looks like the Obama campaign may have settled on its slogan for the 2012 election: "Forward. " Four years ago, Barack Obama ran on another one-word slogan, "Change. " Now, as President Obama prepares to hold the first public campaign rallies for his reelection, his team is giving a sense of what his pitch to voters will look like. A seven-minute Web video (watch below) lays out what it says was the precarious state of the nation when Obama took office in 2009 and the steps he took to begin addressing the challenges.

Re "Obama draws line in tax debate," July 10 The article states that over the next decade, $800 billion could be realized by raising tax rates on the top 2% of taxpayers. That's $80 billion a year. Given what Washington spends in a single day, the president's proposed tax hike on the rich would pay for a few weeks of federal expenditures per year. Does the president want to win the election or fix the economy? This "tax debate" is not about fair taxes; it's about votes.

"Winning takes care of everything. " It's a phrase Tiger Woods has used often with reporters when asked about his or other golfers' rankings. So it's appropriate that Nike uses that as the slogan in a new ad congratulating Woods on returning to the top of the world golf rankings for the first time in more than two years. Or is it? Some people disapprove of the ad, which Nike posted on Facebook and Twitter, in light of the extramarital affairs that became public in late 2010.

So Rosa Brooks has joined the bandwagon in deciding the reason Americans got stuck with President Bush for a second term is because the dastardly Democratic Party and, specifically, Sen. John Kerry, didn't come up with a sufficiently catchy slogan (Opinion, March 10). There was absolutely nothing wrong with Kerry as a presidential candidate in terms of a message, diplomatic skills, fiscal responsibility, understanding issues or military credentials. The only reason we're stuck with Bush today is because there were just enough Americans who wanted to follow Bush down the path he has taken us. Much as we may now wish for world history to go easy on us by understanding how the "other guy" just didn't have the right slogan, history is not going to blame Kerry or the Democratic Party for what we have done to ourselves and the rest of the world.

The long-running "Got Milk?" slogan promoting milk consumption in the U.S. has been nixed. The  Milk Processor Education Program, funded by milk processors, has launched a  new ad campaign that aims to emphasize milk's protein content to get Americans to drink more milk. Rather than feature celebrities sporting milk mustaches, the new ad campaign -- "Milk Life" -- touts milk's nutritional qualities and urges Americans to drink more of it in the morning. In one ad, a young man is shown break dancing amid a swirl of milk, and the text reads: "What 8 grams of protein looks like when you're breaking the laws of physics.

SAN DIEGO - Score one for Mayor Bob Filner in his continuing fight with City Atty. Jan Goldsmith - this time concerning Goldsmith's prosecution of a man who chalked protest messages on the sidewalk outside branches of Bank of America. Filner, who came of age politically as a civil rights activist in the 1960s, had called the legal case "stupid" and a waste of taxpayer money. Goldsmith had defended the case as a simple, and legally justifiable, prosecution of graffiti vandalism.

PHOTOS: Hollywood Backlot moments Some of the women were asked to perform in blackface, others to impersonate Adolf Hitler and shout Nazi propaganda.

BOSTON - The unofficial new slogan of this bomb-scarred city was everywhere Saturday. On highway signs along Interstate 90 and T-shirts in the storied Italian neighborhood of the North End. On placards held up by sticks in the Public Garden, and on race bibs worn by a pair of runners waiting for the T at the Haymarket stop. At Fenway Park, where the Red Sox played for the first time since two homemade bombs tore through the finish-line crowd at the Boston Marathon. At the Bruins-Penguins hockey game, where even the Pittsburgh team's goalie wore a Boston sticker on his helmet.

TUNIS, Tunisia - The slain Tunisian opposition leader's coffin was driven through rain-swept streets lined with soldiers and crammed with mourners who chanted against the Islamist-led government and marched with placards through the heart of this troubled capital. Chokri Belaid's funeral procession moved slowly through neighborhoods Friday while his compatriots clashed with police and demonstrated by the tens of thousands on the third day of unrest that has sharpened political divisions in the birthplace of the "Arab Spring.

WASHINGTON -- The District of Columbia Council is calling on President Obama to put a "Taxation without Representation" license plate on the presidential limousine in the inaugural parade to draw attention to the city's long-standing desire to be represented by voting members of Congress. Displaying the slogan during the parade down Pennsylvania Avenue would highlight the "fundamentally unfair and undemocratic condition of district residents," according to a resolution unanimously approved by the council last week.  Council member Mary Cheh, the resolution's chief sponsor, and Council Chairman Phil Mendelson presented one of the standard plates issued by the district to residents, along with a copy of the resolution, to a senior administration official last week.
