I was all ready to write you a nasty letter in regards to your story about the pit bull attacking the woman. I was going to say that you were creating paranoia and that the woman who was attacked may have been doing something to incite the dog. Then I just read that a pit bull tore the arms off a grandma. Please feel free to tell me to shut the hell up.

Thank you for Gustavo Arellano's article "Florence Got Nice Paintings" [Feb. 13]. I would like to point out, however, that in the article, he refers to the Puente Project as "a University of California-sponsored outreach program seeking to enroll more Latinos in four-year universities." Actually, Puente is co-sponsored by the University of California and the California Community Colleges, with additional funding from private foundations. In addition, the program does not target students of any particular ethnicity. It is, and always has been, open to all students.
