Spoiler alert!

It would be nice if in the future you avoided putting plot spoilers in the titles and URLs of your online content. “Lady Sybil’s shocking death. Did it have to happen?” [Jan. 28] ruined a major plot twist of last week’s episode of “Downton Abbey.” I find it fairly easy to avoid plot spoilers by avoiding articles that reveal information about television shows that I like, but it is actually impossible when the spoiler is in the title of the article.

Drug disposal

“Hoarding drugs is bad medicine, even if your intentions are good” [Jan. 28] discusses several methods for getting rid of unneeded prescription drugs, but it does not mention the Dispose My Meds program. Independently owned pharmacies have collected more than 50 tons of unused or expired medications since the program’s inception in 2010 by the National Community Pharmacists Association. Drop-offs of nonnarcotic prescription drugs are accepted every business day at some 1,600 participating pharmacies nationwide, including several in the Washington area.
