I can attest to the accuracy of Julia Van Duyn's kudos to London cab drivers Oct. 25. I've been returning to London regularly since 1967, and I've never had a cab driver do anything but drive superbly and take the most direct route to my destination. They will not start a conversation, but will respond promptly if you do. Although cabs are not inexpensive, they are a best buy because of time saved and the drivers' impressive knowledge of London.
