Thank you for John Clark's lengthy article about Howard Stern's upcoming movie ("Call Him Mr. Nice Guy," Sept. 1). No doubt, though, your editor left out an important part of director Betty Thomas' quote. Clark reports that "when her friends try to give her a hard time about working with Stern, she tells them, 'You're me a couple of months ago.' " I'm certain the full quote should have been "You're me a couple of months ago . . . before I was paid an enormous sum to betray my own gender"!

A federal judge ratified the landmark deal in the criminal prosecution of Toyota Motor Corp. over safety defects in its vehicles, but not without a tongue-lashing about the "reprehensible picture" of corporate misconduct the automaker displayed. "Corporate fraud can kill," Judge William H. Pauley III said Thursday as Christopher P. Reynolds, the chief legal officer of Toyota Motor North America, stood silently before him in a lower Manhattan courtroom. "I sincerely hope that this is not the end but only a beginning to seek to hold those individuals responsible for making these decisions accountable," Pauley said.

Starry-eyed idea Adam Silver's first official act as NBA commissioner should be a tribute to David Stern and to common sense. In honor of his predecessor's 30 years as the league's top boss, Silver should increase the number of All-Star players from 24 to 30. Such a move would constitute a win-win-win by reducing the number of real and perceived snubs, increasing exposure for more of the game's top players and adding intrigue to...

Re "Satellite radio sweeps Stern off cultural radar," Oct. 13 Just wondering -- have you listened to Howard Stern lately? You quoted heavily from terrestrial radio people, who will always trash him. Stern has transformed his show since moving to satellite. His show is less star-driven than it was before, but he still makes news. Just because he is off your radar does not mean he does a lousy show. I have listened to Stern for more than 15 years. His last two years are his best shows.

I thank Mark Swed for his loving tribute to violinist Isaac Stern, and the insightful words of the L.A. Philharmonic's Deborah Borda ("He Aimed Music at Listeners' Hearts," Sept 25). Some years ago, after the end of the Cultural Revolution in China, Stern made a trip there, which was made into a documentary (thankfully still available on video), "From Mao to Mozart." I vividly recall wanting the film to never end. It gave me such joy, and reaffirmed why I had become a musician. But more, it made me proud to be a human being.

It's funny. You published a lengthy piece about the latest hip-hop discussion group and ignore the trend's creator ("Rap Summit Is Called," April 18). Howard Stern held the original summit; in fact, he conceived it on the air. During a broadcast last month, he had hip-hop and rap artists in the studio and by telephone talking over the issues involved. I'll bet he got down to more bottom-line truths than any of the record company CEOs will. My point, though, is that all anyone really writes about is Howard the shock-jock.

RE "The Right Man to Grab the Mike" (June 17, 2007) by Cristy Lytal: I was disappointed that Ms. Lytal chose to invoke the name Howard Stern in her puff piece on Don Cheadle but then failed to mention that the shock-jock played a pivotal role in the career of the man (Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene) whom Mr. Cheadle is portraying in the biopic "Talk to Me." It may interest Ms. Lytal -- and perhaps even the filmmakers themselves -- to know that Mr. Stern appeared on Petey Greene's Washington, D.C., television program in 1980 in blackface and fright wig carrying a boom box. To see a tape of this broadcast is to understand the true genius of Mr. Greene.

After NBA Commissioner David Stern tied the bow on the Clippers' early Christmas package containing Chris Paul, he said his office had done the right thing. "It is our belief that [this Clippers deal] is a very good transaction and better for the Hornets and their future in New Orleans than the [Lakers] transaction I did not sign off on," Stern said in a conference call after approving the Paul-to-Clippers trade Wednesday. A year ago, the NBA took ownership of the Hornets when the team's owner wanted to be bought out. With the franchise's continued residence in Louisiana in peril, Stern began looking for a new owner while Dell Demps served as the team's general manager.

Commissioner is a title far too limiting for David Stern. He has been part comedian, part dictator, part visionary, part man on a mission, and there's nothing Ron Artest's fists, Gilbert Arenas' guns or Allen Iverson's wardrobe could possibly do to stop him. In his 30 years as the NBA's top boss, which will end with his Feb. 1 retirement, Stern has shown he almost always knows what he's doing. One of his first acts as commissioner in the summer of 1984 was to try to terminate the Clippers' franchise after it moved from San Diego to Los Angeles without league approval.

Adam Silver won't have to familiarize himself with the minutiae of the NBA's collective bargaining agreement upon succeeding David Stern as league commissioner Saturday. Silver negotiated that deal himself. It was the most high-profile assignment Silver undertook during a 22-year apprenticeship that widely is believed to have prepared him for the league's top job. The longtime lawyer started as a special assistant to Stern before running the entertainment division and becoming deputy commissioner in 2006.

It came as no surprise that the NBA on Saturday levied a $100,000 fine on Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban after he walked onto the Staples Center court following his team's late collapse in a 129-127 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday to give the officials a piece of his mind. With about five minutes to play, the Mavericks were on the verge of blowing out the Clippers, having built a 17-point lead. Dallas went into a funk, the Clippers got hot and Cuban was obviously bothered by the outcome.

HOUSTON - Williamson County Dist. Atty. Ken Anderson had risen to a district judge by the time a special investigation was launched this year to scrutinize a murder he had prosecuted in 1987. In a rare finding, a judge determined that Anderson had intentionally withheld evidence, resulting in the wrongful conviction of Michael Morton. Morton served 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife before DNA tests exonerated him and another man was convicted of the crime. Anderson agreed to serve nine days in jail, resign from the bench and surrender his law license.

Lady Gaga addressed a few of her famous feuds on "The Howard Stern Show" on Tuesday amid the release of her latest album "Artpop. " Her latest tiff with "Fashion Police" host Kelly Osbourne doesn't bother her and she said she was "not personally affected" by it. As for her long-running feud with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Mother Monster seemed exasperated by the whole thing. "All the feuds usually that people write about, they're very one-sided. It's me over here and somebody's feuding with themselves about me," the "Applause" singer said at the 23-minute mark during her interview.
