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.

In reality, the same ranchers and hunters John Balzar consulted ("Animal Populations Put Parks in a Bind," Part A, Dec. 17) are the source of the problem. Until they drop their opposition to the restoration of the gray wolf to Yellowstone, we can look forward to annual scenes of hunters lined up like firing squads and mowing down buffalo. For tens of thousands of years the wolf has been the key component in keeping prey base populations in balance to any ecosystem the wolf is indigenous to. We can no longer plead ignorance in barring his return to Yellowstone.

Kevin Kathman is the executive chef at Wolf in Sheep's Clothing , recently opened in the space that was Lilly's on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice. The Minnesota native attended culinary school in Vermont, worked under Thomas Keller at French Laundry and staged at acclaimed kitchens including L'Arpège in Paris and Daniel in New York. When he's not serving up classic Southern-inspired dishes at Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, Kathman can be found experimenting with fresh finds from the farmers market or a foraging trip.

Everyone must be familiar with the parable of the shepherd who cried "wolf, wolf" when there was no wolf so that when a wolf did appear, the people paid him no heed thinking it again a false alarm. We, unfortunately, suffer from this wolf-wolf syndrome. Those responsible for defending our borders seem unable to resist shouting, "Enemies at our borders. Enemies at our borders." We heard it with Cuba. We heard it with Vietnam. We heard it recently with El Salvador. Now we are hearing it with Nicaragua.

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.
