Towering underground mountains and valleys six times deeper than the Grand Canyon have been found on Earth's molten metal core by scientists who devised crude maps of the planet's interior.

Regarding the new, drafted rule that would permit coal and hard-rock mining companies to continue piling leftover rock and dirt into nearby streams and valleys (April 26), Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Christie Whitman remarked, "It's not a giveaway to the mining industry. It doesn't allow activity that isn't already underway." Well! How many other practices should we allow because that's the way they're being done, regardless of damage? When something is wrong, saying it's the usual practice doesn't make it right.

" Trouble is, living in a vehicle on public streets is illegal. Ever since Foster began parking his camper on residential streets, first in Hollywood and then in the San Fernando Valley, the motor home dweller has been rousted from one spot to the next by annoyed neighbors and police.
