Re "Iraqi leadership's failures raise pressure on U.S.," May 21 It would be laughable if it were not tragic to think of Congress ousting anyone, especially the leader of a nominally sovereign foreign government it was fooled into helping install in the first place. If Congress wants to practice its skills, there is a more worthy target right under its nose: U.S. Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales. So far his manifest contempt for Congress paints it as a bunch of waffling wusses. If Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki is to be ousted, the decision will be made in the court of President Bush, not in the halls of our self-styled representatives.

Allergan Inc.'s promotions for the eyelash-growing drug Latisse are "misleading" because they don't describe safety risks, regulators said. The Food and Drug Administration cited the website www.latisse.com and a placard with a timeline of the product's introduction in a warning letter to the Irvine company. Allergan says the timeline is no longer being used. Materials promoting a drug's benefits must also address its risks, which in this case include allergic reactions or hair growth outside the treatment area, the FDA said.

SAN FRANCISCO -- It's déjà vu all over again for Facebook privacy. Facebook says it's changing its privacy controls yet again to make them easier for users to understand. One of the new features: privacy shortcuts that pop up on the right-hand side at the top of News Feeds that answer questions such as “Who can see my stuff?” You can also block someone with one click. Facebook is also rolling out a feature that allows people to more easily hide or remove posts that appear on their Timeline.

Twitter introduced a feature similar to Facebook's "Cover Photo" that allows users to post a large personal picture to their profile page. It also updated the apps for using Twitter on mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads as well as phones running Android. Users can now add large photos that will appear above their tweets on their profile page, a feature Twitter is calling the "Header Photo. " But the Header Photo is hardly innovative. Facebook introduced something similar called the Cover Photo back when it announced its new Timeline profiles late last year.

The Dianne Klein column ("The End Does Not Justify the Fanatical Means of Terrorism," March 16), after building on the murder of Dr. Gunn, asks for governmental vigor in pursuit of pro-life fanatics as if they were murdering terrorists. Two significant issues come to mind: life and freedom of assembly. I'll comment on the life issue. What is life? When does life begin? When does life end? Courts have addressed life of a fetus with respect to the time from conception. So now, a legal system says what is life and what is not life: To the system, life depends on a particular spot on the gestation timeline.

Let's be honest, sometimes there's no better way to waste time on a Friday at work than on Facebook. And after stumbling upon the addictive new website "What Would I Say?," wasting time got even more fun. The website culls old Facebook activity and uses the information to predict a future status based on what you talk about and how you talk about it. The result: a sometimes funny, sometimes nonsensical status that is often uncannily accurate. "What Would I Say?" got even better when we discovered that users can generate statuses for Facebook pages belonging to celebrities or organizations.
