Calendar Letters to the Editor Sunday, January 29
All the things outdated is new once more
Thanks for Robert Lloyd’s glorious assessment of the revivals “Night Court” and “That ‘90s Show” [“In With the New, and the Old Too,” Jan. 18].
The opening segment of “Night Court” with John Larroquette as a process server was wonderful entertainment and so well written.
My only problem with the show is that everyone talked so fast, often not allowing us to fully understand the well-written script or have time to smile and laugh.
Three-camera television shows are so worth it. Thank you for Lloyd’s glorious writing.

Harry’s ebook will get the royal remedy
Relating to “‘Spare’ Is Merciless, but Short of Enough” [Jan. 17]: I wish to congratulate Meredith Blake for doing precisely what a ebook author ought to do: assist a reader determine whether or not they wish to learn a selected ebook.
With all of the hype surrounding “Spare,” Blake’s commentary does an excellent job of placing the ebook into clear and significant perspective. I personally discover Harry supremely likable however, as a psychologist, I nod to Blake’s evaluation and conclude that Harry has but to discern the forest from the timber.
On that foundation, I’m going to attend for Harry’s second ebook the place he tackles the dysfunctionalism of monarchism as the final word root of his difficulties.
Harry, I’m actually rooting so that you can turn out to be an American in its finest sense.
In a letter to The Instances concerning Mary McNamara’s column on Prince Harry’s ebook [“Feedback: Poor Little Rich Prince,” Jan. 22], a author commenting on the ebook discloses that they haven’t learn the ebook, refuse to purchase it as a result of they select “not to contribute to the rich getting richer” and so they “have heard quite enough” from snippets and interviews.
However, the author goes on to “conjecture” that Harry’s North Pole expedition affected not solely “his nether regions but possibly his brain as well,” as a result of in any other case, they ask, “how else can one explain this truly bizarre and vicious tome?”
Effectively, for starters, strive studying what he truly wrote. I’ll even mortgage you my copy.
The message behind ‘Rust’ prosecutions
Relating to “‘Rust’ Charges Rattle Actors” [Jan. 23]: My coronary heart breaks for Halyna Hutchison and her household. It additionally aches for Alec Baldwin and his household.
I really feel that the D.A. in New Mexico is selling the deeply flawed idea that “guns don’t kill people. People kill people.” Very pro-NRA. I believe there’s a extra vital have to give attention to the truth that weapons do kill individuals.
Baldwin is yet one more sufferer of this accident, together with director Joel Souza. Ceaselessly broken by this and now a felony trial.

Good management from a assessment
Due to a assessment in final week’s Calendar part [“His ‘Eisenhower’ Worth the Field Trip” Jan. 16], we went to see the manufacturing of “Eisenhower.”
Thanks, it was excellent. From the historical past lesson, to the perception of an earnest, honest man, to distinctive performing by John Rubinstein, it was so effectively performed.
If it had not been for that assessment, it may have been ignored.
One in every of our award exhibits is lacking
I used to be questioning why the L.A. Instances didn’t cowl the Critics’ Selection Award. There have been loads of celebrities and vital film makers, however you didn’t write a single article, if you are nonetheless publishing minor articles concerning the Golden Globes. Aside from the aspect you determine to select within the awards battle, it could be good that an ideal newspapers like yours would cowl all of the Hollywood occasions and never simply those they like.
