DEAR DR. GOTT: Do you have knowledge of red yeast rice tablets? My husband was taking Lipitor (at $5 per pill) for cholesterol problems, and a friend who was taking the same prescription switched to red yeast rice tablets (which cost less than one-fifth the price of Lipitor). It seems to be working without difficulty, but I feel concerned that he would switch medications without his doctor's permission. DEAR READER: Red yeast rice, ...

Editor: Why am I continuing to worry about a recent "Soundoff" opinion that "Symphonies, along with ballet and opera, are cultural baggage"? I suppose my main worry about such a needless, pointless condemnation of the arts is that it might be symptomatic and contagious. For if such an aggressive misunderstanding of the musical and dramatic arts became epidemic, not only our schools and concert halls, but our entire society would have surrendered ...
