I appreciate your unbiased story on the Raymond Theater ["Preservationists Continue Efforts to Save Pasadena's Raymond Theatre," Aug. 25]. I particularly liked the bored, peeved look on the Buchanans in the photo you printed.

It never ceases to amaze me that old Buddha was right when he said that life in of itself has no inherent meaning. But here's the kicker: he then said that we bring meaning to life. Human beings could just as plausibly be ends in themselves with the autonomy to define their own meaning for their lives. So, it's not so much about the meaning of life, but about living it; and answering the question "How should I live?"
