David Myers Chef-owner of L.A. restaurants Sona and Comme Ca, and Pizzeria Ortica in O.C. -- When Myers, now 34, was a chef in New York in his 20s, he never had time to stay in shape. "I worked out not at all -- I just worked," he says. Moving west and launching his own business didn't exactly pave the way to flat abs either. With energy and focus lagging during 14- to 16-hour shifts, Myers decided it was time to make fitness a priority.

The big buzz in cutting-edge restaurant kitchens these days is about equipment that, quite frankly, you and I will never have. These are extremely specialized tools that cost thousands of dollars and perform one specific task very well. Take the Pacojet, which shaves frozen food into an almost microscopic dust, or a sous-vide system, which allows ingredients to be cooked at very low temperatures for a very long time.

David Myers' commentary on hate groups ("Take a Hint From Europe and Raise Vigilance Now," Aug. 13) is scary--almost as scary as the groups themselves. Myers wants the government to take a "more active role." It's ironic that Myers hopes to defend tolerance by advocating "zero tolerance" of hate groups. It seems he's missed the point of tolerance, which is that others' beliefs do not need our approval. This does not mean we cannot denounce hate groups. But in a free society, this isn't done with "the painful step of proscribing hate speech."
