My mom told me, “Never trust anyone who complains too much; they're up to something.” She must have read Shakespeare. He proposed a way of cutting through the minutia of an argument - it's called finding the hidden agenda. Remember in “Hamlet,” when Queen Gertrude says, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks”? I thought of Shakespeare when I saw Protect La Cañada Flintridge's print advertisement concerning the master plan construction project of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.

For 12 months filmmaker/adventurer Karin Muller traveled from one end of Japan to the other, living among the people and exploring Japan’s ancient cultural heritage and its modern ways. Muller followed the dervish mountain cults as they undertook shamanistic austerities like fire walking, icy waterfall immersion and exorcism. She joined a samurai mounted archery team and learned how to handle a longbow on a galloping horse. She filmed the sacred art of sword making under a 24th generation master and made a 900-mile pilgrimage in the footsteps of Japan’s most famous saint.

As a practicing internist, I would like to comment upon the state and federal government's existing and expanding penalty and fine system for local hospitals and physicians who treat elderly patients who may require longer hospital stays or readmission. (“Hospital readmission rate is too high,” Sept. 16). All of the local hospitals do an excellent job in caring for our elderly Americans. This system of fines and penalties has little to do with quality of care issues and more to with coding, compliance and rationing of health-care dollars.
