    Chipping Away Another Brick in the Wall

    Thank you so very much for the excellent description of the celebration (“Lessons From a Wall,” Nov. 14). I lived in Germany almost continuously from 1971, when I went as a U.S. soldier, until I returned to California in 2004. Nov. 9, 1989,...

    Star of David Big and Bright Deep in the Heart of Westwood

    As the director of UCLA’s Center for Jewish Studies, I am writing in response to professor Judea Pearl’s article, “Should Campus Racism Be Discussed?” (Oct. 17). While I do not disagree with his desire to foster...

    Marvelous Metropolis

    If Rob Eshman is “happy to see light-rail lines rising on the Westside,” he ought to be ecstatic about the light-rail line projected now for the 405 Corridor from Sylmar in the north San Fernando Valley to LAX (“Builders and Shakers,” Oct. 10). Both...
