Humane treatment of prisoners in the County Jail should certainly include a bed to sleep in, however, I am perplexed about a recent statement by one authority that "tents are not considered acceptable." Before the landings in Italy by the U.S. 7th Army, our battalion spent eight months in North Africa in eight-man tents that had double bunks. Not far from us were 600 Italian prisoners of war with similar arrangements. What was our sentence? The duration plus six months! JOSEPH E. IRVINE Santa Ana

Queen Elizabeth II led a procession of horse-drawn carriages down the track at the start of the Royal Ascot races today but gray skies and cold winds drove many racegoers inside refreshment tents. On a day when Britons traditionally parade their summer finery, umbrellas and heavy clothes were the fashion, although a few brave souls shivered in strapless tops and light jackets. The temperature didn't rise above 64 degrees.

The article by Jim Hayes ("Kaboom, Swat, Clang," The Generations Issue, April 30) really hit home. I lived in both Venice and Santa Monica. I went to school in tents after the earthquake. And I rode the Big Red Cars--the last time in 1942, when I went to Ft. MacArthur to be inducted into the Army. Give us more stories like this one. Paul Giampaolo Carlsbad

Ted Hayes' hopes for a Christmas Eve "miracle on 1st Street"--the setting up of Tent City II to provide holiday shelter for 300 of Los Angeles' estimated 30,000 homeless people--came close to happening Wednesday night but collapsed under the weight of governmental red tape and misunderstanding.

You might say Ohio State receiver Anthony Gonzalez had a breakthrough performance Saturday night in the Buckeyes' 24-7 victory over Texas, but Gonzalez breaks through just about every day. Through the door of the tent in which he sleeps, that is. Gonzalez, who set career high Saturday with eight catches and 142 yards, has what's called a hypoxic altitude simulation training system -- a plastic chamber -- covering his bed.

Glamour plus camping equals "glamping. " Thanks to this website, you'll never have to pitch a tent. Name: Glamping.com What it does: Sources glamorous camping options the world over - from floating lodges in Cambodia to luxe treehouses in Italy. What's hot: The site defines different glamping opportunities. I liked that it organized them both by destination and by categories, such as tents, villas and huts; cubes and eco-pods; yurts and tepees; and more. I found tented suites in Kenya, a Four Seasons tented camp in Thailand, solar-powered tents in Australia; and luxury yurts in Britain.

Picture this -- blue skies, a teal sea, white sand and palm trees swaying in the cool seaside breeze. And in the middle of it all, two giant white tents full of hundreds of people boozing it up and eating until they couldn't breathe. It's the South Beach Food and Wine Festival in a nutshell. Four days of food, wine and Food Network stars. There were too many events to hit them all, but here are the highlights from a festival binge in Miami: The Whole Foods Grand Tasting Village and Mastercard Grand Tasting Tents: These tents acted as the main festival hub where guests could have their favorite Food Network chefs sign cookbooks, or watch a cooking demonstration by Rachael Ray, Alex Guarnaschelli, Curtis Stone and more stars.

Thunderstorms frustrated earthquake relief operations Sunday, grounding all but a few helicopter flights to stricken areas of the Pakistani-held portion of Kashmir and this country's North-West Frontier Province. This morning, the heavy rains halted and eight international medical teams took off for outlying villages. The Pakistani army, leading the relief effort, has yet to reach villages cut off by landslides in Kashmir's Neelum and Jhelum valleys, where a heavy loss of life is feared.

Several Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested Friday after they embarked on an impromptu victory march through Lower Manhattan following the cancellation of a plan to clean the privately owned park where they have been camped for 28 days. Protesters had seen the planned cleanup as a ploy to evict them from Zuccotti Park, even though park owner Brookfield Office Properties said it wanted to move people only temporarily so it could scrub the plaza. But it also said that when protesters returned, they no longer could have tents, sleeping bags or tarps.
