Within the last two weeks, we've been hearing about NFL stadium plans from Pasadena, Los Angeles and Carson. Haven't we been down this road before? Jack Wolf Westwood

Both Don Shirley's Aug. 14 review of Mark Wolf's "Another American: Asking and Telling" and Phil Cooke's Counterpunch ("As Plays Get Preachy, the Story Sometimes Gets Lost," Aug. 20) miss the point. Each year the U.S. military fires more than 1,000 people because of their sexual orientation. Having interviewed 200 victims of military discrimination, Wolf humanizes their stories and explains how a government institution has destroyed their lives. If such storytelling does not move the debate forward, then what will?

It's a gray, foreboding afternoon on a recent Sunday. Hungarian director Marta Meszaros and her crew have set up shop on the 18th floor of an office building in this Canadian city, tilting their camera through a Plexiglas window toward the distant street. There, practically in miniature, a half-dozen extras cluster on a curb, ready to cross on cue. On a diagonal corner, barely discernable, a silver, slithery, four-legged creature also waits, poised for action.

Massachusetts prison officials must provide a publicly funded sex reassignment surgery to an inmate serving a life sentence for killing his wife, a federal judge in Boston ruled Tuesday. The decision , handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Mark Wolf, is believed to be the first such order by a judge in the nation, lawyer Frances S. Cohen of Bingham McCutchen LLP of Boston, said by telephone. Cohen is one of the attorneys representing Michelle Kosilek, who lives as a woman in an all-male prison.

I enjoyed your article on wolves (Part I, Nov. 2). You presented a well-researched and informative piece. The issue of reintroduction of the wolf touches upon our commitment to a real natural preserve, not sanitized to serve particular economic or recreational interests. Management of the wolves, cattle and indemnification can resolve the problems for the ranchers. Predators are often convenient targets in instances of range and stock mismanagement. Certainly, there is ample evidence that the deer and elk populations will benefit from the return of their most skillful manager, the wolf.
