[R] Conditional ploting with logical vector

Hi list
Maybe someone can help with the following problem (thanks in advance):

In a function I have a plot and want to add symbols/text only when indicated by a logical vector (which was generated by the function before, not manually like in the following example):

plot(1:10, 1:10)
lv <- c(T,T,T,F,F,F,T,T,T,F)
text(1:10, 1:10, '*', pos = 3)

In this example the asterisk is plotted at every yx-coordinate indicated. How Can I make it appear only when 'TRUE' in the lv?

Another (statistical) question:
Actually this function generates significance levels to the plot at 10 time points of a time series by comparing the values at the single time points by a t-test. I know this is probably not the correct way to compare the whole series, but I have to do it this way ('constraints'). The question is: do I have to adjust for multiple testing by e.g. Bonferroni correction?
