How Reichl could purport to present the top 40 restaurants in Los Angeles and leave off the best of them all--Le Chardonnay--is beyond me. Le Chardonnay has everything Reichl was looking for in abundance--two charming and watchful owners, outstanding food at reasonable prices, excellent service and elegant ambience.

In the days after the World Trade Center fell, Anne Nelson, a combat-correspondent-turned-journalism-professor, sat in her ivory tower at New York's Columbia University having what she calls "a crisis of marginality." The story of a lifetime had rained down on her city, and all she could do was sit eight miles uptown and fret about the safety of students she had sent to gather the news.

The Actors' Gang is going on tour. The Gang will tour "The Guys," Anne Nelson's staged reading about the aftermath of Sept. 11, to universities in Mississippi and Georgia and to the Annenberg Center in Philadelphia next spring and to several Midwestern venues next fall. Part of the motivation is to pay actors a decent wage. Participating Gang actors -- V.J. Foster, Cynthia Ettinger, Brent Hinkley and Kate Mulligan -- will get $500 a week plus expenses, paid for by the presenters.

MURDER UNDER TWO FLAGS: THE U.S., PUERTO RICO AND THE CERRO MARAVILLA COVER-UP by Anne Nelson (Ticknor & Fields: $17.95). To Puerto Ricans, the term "Cerro Maravilla" has come to imply the same things that the word "Watergate" implies to their fellow citizens on the U.S. mainland--a serious public scandal based on the abuse of government power. In July, 1978, two young men were killed by Puerto Rican police at Cerro Maravilla, a peak on the outskirts of Ponce.

When the one-act stage play "The Guys" opened in New York, about three months after the collapse of the World Trade Center, actors Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver played the emotionally wrenching roles of a fire captain and the journalist who helped him write eulogies for eight of his men who died on Sept. 11. Since then, the play has received critical acclaim on both coasts.

In his May 14 review of "A Show of Force," Michael Wilmington questioned the historical accuracy of the film ("I haven't read Nelson's book, but I have my doubts . . ."). I have read Anne Nelson's book, as well as Manuel Suarez's definitive account of the cover-up investigation, and would like to certify that Wilmington was right on every count and then some. The Cerro Maravilla expose, as any Puerto Rican will tell you, was not the work of an individual journalist but of several; most prominently Suarez, Tomas Stella and Carmen Jovet.

A proposed development of 12 single-family homes at Hillcrest and Don Ricardo drives is being opposed by neighbors who say the project is being planned without their input. "These developers, whoever they are, didn't do any legwork in the community," said Carlton Jenkins, president of Founders National Bank and a resident of Hillcrest Drive. "Nobody came to homeowner meetings. It looks like they're going to cut into the remnants of a hill, which doesn't seem feasible.
