Re "FDA Has a Deal for Plan B Pill," Aug. 1 Wendy Wright, leader of Concerned Women for America, said, "The person who buys the drug is not necessarily the person who will take the drug. What the Food and Drug Administration would have to consider is a foolproof plan to keep proxies from buying the drug and giving it to adolescents." Will Wright expand her moral logic of a "foolproof plan" to other items proven to be harmful to adolescents? Beer, wine and hard liquor, sugary soft drinks and food itself -- child obesity, we're told, is a national crisis.

County libraries will take a long Thanksgiving holiday, remaining closed for the weekend after turkey day. The move saves money and gives library staff a longer vacation, said Alan Langville, manager of Ventura County's community libraries. He said the libraries have closed Thanksgiving weekend for several years. The Camarillo, Fillmore, Moorpark, Ojai and Simi Valley branch libraries will be closed Nov.

I grew up eating ice cream sundaes at Will Wright's and C.C. Brown's, two of Los Angeles' famous ice cream parlors that no longer exist. At home I'd try to make my own sundaes using bottled sauces and supermarket ice cream. But they were never the same. Even so, I came to develop strong ideas about ice cream sundaes at a fairly young age. I knew pretty quickly to avoid marshmallow sauce; it was always too sweet, and I never liked the consistency of it.

Brian Fargo is a grown-up kids might envy. His ride to work is a black 450-horsepower Cadillac Escalade with seven video screens. His office two blocks from the surf in Newport Beach is stocked with video game consoles, classic arcade machines, free snacks and a shower so he can wash up after boogie boarding. At 40, Fargo himself would be considered a kid by most business executives. In the youth-crazed video game industry, though, he's a geezer.

Forward Lorenzen Wright, who strained ligaments in his left knee when Golden State Warrior center Felton Spencer fell on him Friday at Oakland, said it was frustrating to miss Saturday's victory over the Dallas Mavericks at the Sports Arena. "Just when you start playing well, something like this happens," said Wright, averaging 16.4 rebounds in his last eight games. "But I'm going to come back with the same mind frame that I had before I left, so hopefully everything will continue."
