Re "N.Y. Landmarks Targeted in Terrorism Warning," May 22: I awaken in my home in Topanga under "code yellow," under Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge's color scheme. I shower, eat breakfast and drive to work in Century City, as I have done for the last 20 years. I work until noon, then go to a local restaurant for lunch. I work until 6 in the evening, then meet my wife (who works in Santa Monica) for dinner at a restaurant on Montana Avenue. We drive home along the Pacific Coast Highway and Topanga Canyon Boulevard in separate cars.

THE BEST WAY TO BALI From LAX, connecting service (change of plane) to the Denpasar airport, about 15 miles from Ubud, is offered on China, Korean, Cathay Pacific, Singapore, Eva, Thai and Malaysia Airlines. Restricted round-trip fares begin at $840. Driving on Bali is a challenge for anyone not familiar with the etiquette on the narrow roads. Most visitors hire a driver, usually from $20 to $30 a day. There are no taxis in Ubud, but a driver will take you anywhere in town for no more than $3. They are easily found on every corner and will call out "transport" and mime the turning of a steering wheel to get your attention.
