I am writing to tell you that I like the new field in La Cañada. I go to church at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our church and the city made a deal that we could share the field. At first I was really bummed out because I thought I wouldn't be able to play on the field any more because it would be fenced off and too many people would be using it. But now I can see that it is better. The city is taking care of the field. The grass is green, there are no more dirt clods everywhere, and there are no more gopher holes - so no more sprained ankles.

A pastor whose plan to hold a Koran burning at his church Saturday has drawn the ire of Muslims and non-Muslims around the world. Up until he decided to cancel the event late last week, the Rev. Terry Jones had rejected the pleas of military officials and even the president himself who said the event would "serve as a major recruiting tool for Al Qaeda. " If Jones has such a dislike of the Islamic faith, what alternatives could he have considered to get his message across that don't involve burning/desecrating a holy book?

Ronni Abergel, a Danish antiviolence campaigner, has begun what is being called the Living Library. Already in 12 countries, patrons "borrow" people who represent stereotypes that often are the target of prejudice or hatred. Examples of these would be a Muslim, an immigrant, a transgender individual, a witch or an atheist, as was the case in an east London library. What do you think about the Living Library? Do you think it would work in the United States and, to some extent, our local communities?
