DEAR READERS: How many times have you gone shopping and, as you pay for the purchases, been asked for your ZIP code? Did you ever wonder why the retailers are asking for this information?

Tx Trumbo (Public Viewpoint, Oct. 7) has provided us multiple illustrations of apparent shortcomings in America’s contemporary workplace. His assertions include discontinued employersponsored pensions, high cost health care and workplace improvement techniques. Most of which he blames on the “reforms generated by billionaires and multimillionaires who are profit motive barons.” I agree that his aforementioned workplace disappointments of pensions and expensive health care co pays are indeed facts of life for today’s workers. I suspect national and/or global competition for low cost services and products has been the driving force for these benefits to be eft ected. Furthermore, if companies were unable to respond to these global pressures, their businesses would cease to be competitive and closures and unemployment would follow. All of which would contribute to higher unemployment and/or lower wages and even higher costs for the remaining employees.
October is usually full of horror films trying to cash in on the Halloween spirit, but this year there aren’t many spooky offerings. The reimagining of the Stephen King novel into a remake of Brian De Palma’s paranormal teen angst metaphor Carrie (starring Chloe Grace Moretz) is basically all we get for the big screen. The bloodsoaked screamer barely scared up $16 million its first weekend, so what’s the deal? Are studios anticipating a move away from genre entertainment around the holidays or is Gravity sucking all the movie tickets into its solar system and scaring off competition? I can’t pretend to know the mind of Hollywood. I can, however, recommend some video on demand or Netflix entertainment to keep your flat screen frightening this Halloween.
