Orchids to writer Stirling Silliphant and onions to Terry Atkinson regarding his review (Calendar, Dec. 17) of "The Three Kings." It's amazing how Atkinson could write with such venom in his heart. He must be terribly allergic to words like Jesus, Christ child, love, hearts of men, etc., to ridicule the movie from start to finish. I found the movie to be just the opposite of what he wrote. It was a beautiful, cleverly told story and a joy to watch.
