With school starting and the traveling days of summer just about ended, we've entered that time when conversations about vacations are frequent: "Where did you go this year, and how was it?" My wife and I took three weeks and learned the hard way that the Central Coast in the summer is more like the Pacific Northwest in the winter. Enough said.
Next week is 9/11, nine years since four jetliners were hijacked by fanatical Muslim extremists. Nearly 3,000 people died on Sept. 11, 2001.

I cannot afford to act in the capacity of academic snob. I attended Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, ranked third by the "everyone gets a prize" U.S. News and World Report as a midwestern regional university.
Thank you for your coverage of the Aug. 24 City Council meeting regarding the proposal to take over the operation of three local libraries ("Last words on libraries").

Once again, I'm glad to say "Bravo Bob Kellar!" You have a backbone and are not a sheeple. Why part with the Los Angeles County library system?

Here are my questions regarding the city's plan to take over the running of our libraries.
In response to "Library row confounds dogmatics," (Sept. 1): Interesting how local columnist/conservative naysayer Gary Horton plays on his misinformed understanding of partisan issues surrounding local versus county control of our treasured public libraries.
"Libraries are community treasure chests, loaded with a wealth of information available to everyone equally, and the key to that treasure chest is the library card. I have found the most valuable thing in my wallet is my library card." - Former First Lady Laura Bush

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
