Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ethan Coen scored last season at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York with "Almost an Evening," a trio of one-act comedies that marked his playwriting debut. Now he will return to the Atlantic with "Offices," another collection of plays, which will be part of the Atlantic's 2008-09 season, Artistic Director Neil Pepe announced Wednesday. The three new comedies dealing with workplace stresses and strains will open next spring. Pepe directs. With his brother Joel, Coen has made movies including "Fargo," "Raising Arizona," "Barton Fink" and this year's Oscar winner for best picture, "No Country for Old Men."

I, like Dan Neil, mourn the demise of the telegram ("R.I.P. STOP," 800 Words, Feb. 19). It was, as he said, a "pretty classy" way to communicate. My experience with its classiness took place about 35 years ago, when my writing collaborator and I were vainly scratching at editorial doors with our short humor pieces. One particular target was the "Accent on Living" section of the Atlantic Monthly. I'll never forget the day a telegram arrived. What could it be? What disaster had struck? It turned out to be from the sainted Charles W. Morton, then-editor of our target Atlantic section.

When an EgyptAir Boeing 767 plunged into the Atlantic on Oct. 31, killing all 217 peopleaboard, the tragedy was felt profoundly by two nations--Egypt and the United States. A number of Southern Californians lost loved ones in the flight, which originated in Los Angeles. Among those here who mourned passenger Mourad Moneer Yassa were his wife, Eatdal Nakhla, and their daughter, Golen, 9. Yassa and his wife came to Southern California two years ago and lived in a Lakewood apartment.

Sharks feeding on a dead 40-foot finback whale today forced police to close all town beaches in this eastern Long Island resort community. The dead whale was beached at the foot of Whaler's Lane in Amagansett, a part of East Hampton. Police Officer Michael Seitz said parts of the whale, apparently ripped off by the sharks, have been seen in the Atlantic as far as five miles away from the site of the carcass.

Beryl's here, and she hasn't broken much - physically. Once a tropical storm churning and gusting through the Atlantic with 70-mph winds, Beryl has now weakened into a depression, dumping buckets of rain all over the Southeast during Memorial Day weekend. As much as 8 inches was still expected Tuesday in the Carolinas. Yet although Beryl didn't blow out Southerners' windows, it shattered a historical record by becoming the strongest tropical storm to hit the Atlantic coast before the official start of hurricane season - June 1, every year - in more than 100 years.
