There's only one day left of the current issue before it's swept aside for a freshy, so if you've yet to read this week's Letters section, you can still cram for tomorrow's lofty volley of discussions. Such as:

—What's worse: Being stuck on a sewage-filled Carnival cruise boat or having to attend a Camper van Beethoven show? Think it over c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y.

—The police shooting of Merle Hatch leaves much to consider, such as: how much does it matter whether the deceased was homeless?

—What happens when you step to Ian Karmel. Or, a good example of an extremely bad job-attainment strategy.

—What happens when you save yourself for gay marriage.
