Tom Titus The hit musicals "Follies," "Annie Warbucks" (the sequel to "Annie") and "Into the Woods" will be in town during the 2003-04 season -- but only briefly, and in three separate locations. Laguna Beach's No Square Theater company has these shows on the calendar for the coming season. However, each is scheduled for only three days of performance, so you'd better get your reservations in soon. "Follies," with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, will kick off the No Square season Aug. 9 to 11 in the Clubhouse 3 auditorium at Leisure World, Laguna Woods.

Tom Titus The customer, they say, is always right, and the people who operate Laguna Beach's No Square Theater are taking this maxim to heart. The company is polling prospective audiences on its Web site (www.NoSquare.org) not only on what show it should put on, but where it should be staged. No Square hasn't been able to book a Laguna venue for a summer show, since both the Artists Theater at Laguna Beach High School and the Forum Theater on the Festival of Arts grounds -- where the company generally performs -- are unavailable.

Let Ross Embry share his marijuana I strongly support Ross Embry's right to use the plant cannabis (marijuana) for health reasons ("Laguna man pleads innocent to marijuana charges," Coastline Pilot, Oct. 18). In the year 2002, it is mean spirited and sinful to cage humans for using cannabis. At the very minimum, North America must re-legalize cannabis, especially when you consider the worst side effects of cannabis are police inflicted. Do cannabis prohibitionists even comprehend that they're admitting a desire to cage humans for using a plant?

Playing ball should be about fun I can't believe it! I agree with Jay Grant on something ("Little Leaguers should all be considered stars," Coastline Pilot, July 26). Although it was 60 years ago, I can still viscerally recall the joy and pleasure of playing "stick ball" with other neighborhood kids (including girls) in an empty field. No regulation equipment, just a sawed-off broom handle and a tennis ball. No leagues (i.e. no competition), no strict rules and best of all, no adults telling us what, why, when and how to play.
