If you can’t figure out an offering with a rate of return that will get investors, then I guess you’ll play those few home games at Qualcomm. That’s the way it works in business, and football is, after all, in the end, a business. Right, Mr. Spanos?

Emperor Of Whisper House
Thank you so much for your insightful review of Whisper House (Theater Review, January 28). When I read some of the other reviews, I wondered if they had seen the same play I did. Bravo for the man with some taste and the guts to say the emperor has no clothes.
Thank you for letting us know about Ad Seg’s music, which will help educate listeners (“Dope and a Pistol,” “Blurt,” January 28).
In spite of its faults, Donovan is generally known as the best-run prison in the state. It reduced its recidivism rate from 70 percent to 21 percent through rehab, drug, and education programs. Using false economy and faulty logic, funding for those programs was reduced or eliminated by the state. That makes no sense considering the high cost of incarcerating people.
The Reader is always interesting, and I often learn about topics I would not think to investigate on my own.
What happened to the diva diary? I looked forward to reading her column each week. I hope you didn’t drop it for good. At least her column was positive and funny — the only one I could count on to make me chuckle. Most of the stuff you have in the paper is SOOOOOOO… negative! There is good, fun stuff around too. Even your movie reviewer seems to be too jaded to find any fun in the movies he reviews.

“Diary of a Diva” resumes this week. — Editor
I read with interest your story on Brett Favre (“Sporting Box,” January 21), until in the very last paragraph, Patrick D. used the term “bitch-slapped.” To me that is absolutely inexcusable. I don’t think I need to explain why “bitch-slapped” is intolerable.
To add to the shame, it sounds like this columnist is of Irish descent.
