Dear Mr. Azrael: My neighbor several years ago filled in a low area on their property, changing the contour so that rainwater now drains onto my property. Much of the fill was being pushed past the property line. I dug a drainage ditch along my side of the property line to divert water back where it formerly drained. I did this to stop erosion of the bank between us, which was created 60 years ago by a previous owner, and was not a problem until [my neighbor] filled the low areas of their property.

LOS ANGELES -- Every year, as many high school seniors struggle with basic algebra, people complain, "Who needs it? How many students will ever use it?" Well, I use it every day. I'm using it now, even though I haven't worked an algebraic equation since my son was in the seventh grade several years ago. Mathematics and science are unnatural practices. As physics professor Alan Cromer has brutally and elegantly written, "The human mind wasn't designed to study physics," and of course mathematics is the language of physics.

"We need to understand what circumstances led to this incident," said an archdiocese spokesman ("Archdiocese investigating priest: He's suspended indefinitely after arrest on charges of indecent exposure," Jan. 24). Celibacy, that unnatural restriction, is forced on clergymen by the male-dominated Vatican. That's what led to these circumstances. Until the Catholic Church understands that it must change, these circumstances will lead other clergy to expose the church to embarrassment as a result of their natural desires.

This week's word: ELDRITCH Eldritch (pronounced EL-drich) means weird, eerie, sinister, ghostly, unnatural, or frightful.  Often the word of the week here is a Latin or Greek derivative, but this week's word appears to be of Scottish origin. The earliest citation in the OED is from William Dunbar in 1508: "There was Pluto, the elrich incubus.
