I feel what you do in your yard is your own business and not the city's, as long as it is not illegal, a health hazard or a safety hazard. I have lived in Costa Mesa for the past 44 years, and now I feel that I will have to move just to keep my freedom. RICHARD RITSCHKE Costa Mesa Costa Mesa Councilman Gary Monahan and residents Mitch Barrie and Dave Goss are classic examples of what's wrong with this city ("Residents uniting against City Hall," July 25)

S.J. CAHN It was talked about this summer. It was lambasted. Criticized. But for producers of the Fox TV show "The O.C.," what mattered was that it was watched.

During the summer, as people -- including quite a few in the Pilot newsroom -- watched "The O.C.," I wrestled with a similar fictionalizing of my hometown: Manhattan Beach.

MICHAEL VILLANI It's getting hard to move from place to place in the venue now without the proper credentials. Yes, security is tightening as the volunteers, hundreds of them, move in to complement the hundreds of paid staff members tending to business in this venue alone.
