Hugh O'Brian played lawman Wyatt Earp on TV. But while reporting a profile of the actor, it was reporter Bob Pool and photographer Mel Melcon who fought a real-life crime.

A reader's plea for more images of real women in +Los Angeles Times  fashion coverage:
"On Page 6, I look at that blue leather top and think, 'I could never wear that.' The whole article on horizontal stripes will never ever apply to me ... I would love it if someone would consider writing articles for those of us with both money and breasts."

Reader reaction to a moving story by +Christopher Goffard.
"Touching, painful and poignant" is how one reader described " Healing Sgt. Warren ," a story in Sunday's Los Angeles Times. That reader was one of many who wrote to The Times with comments about the article by Christopher Goffard and photos and video by Rick Loomis .

Fun factoids: The +Los Angeles Times made its first presidential endorsement in 1884, for Republican James G. Blaine. (He lost to Grover Cleveland.) Every subsequent endorsement from then until 1972 was for the Republican candidate. The Times made no endorsements from 1973-2008.

Several readers questioned the veracity of the Los Angeles Times' photo of the space shuttle Endeavour passing the Hollywood sign:
“I went there specifically to see if I could capture a scene such as the one shown in The Times, and it was not possible.”
“If that pass had been made, I would have several shots of it. It just simply, never happened.”
“Seems these are altered images to enhance the drama of the moment.”
