Regarding David Colker's article "A Quest for the French Laundry" [Weekend Escape, Nov. 9]: How old is this guy, 12? I found the article focused on the nudity, not on the destination. His judgmental tone demonstrated only his lack of sophistication. For a travel writer, he is woefully provincial. I would have approached this travel experience as a learning opportunity and a chance to broaden my perspective. Grow up, David, and open your mind. Brian Blatchley Palm Desert

The Kings' on-again, off-again captain, Rob Blake, cannot decide whether to wear the "C" on his jersey. We all know the "C" denotes Courage, not Complainer. Honor your Contract and end this Controversy. DAVID R. STERN Marina del Rey

Everyone hates David (Patrick Huard), and with good reason: The shiftless, selfish 42-year-old butcher is such a screw-up that when he impregnates his girlfriend Valérie (Julie LeBreton), she severs ties so their child won't have to deal with the endless disappointment of knowing him. Great news - David agrees he's not ready to be a dad. Except he already is, thanks to a past gig as a frequent sperm donor. He's fathered 533 children, 142 of whom have filed suit to meet "Starbuck," the champion self-pleasurer of 1988.

When my husband, Bill, and I were thinking about another trip to Europe in our golden years, we decided I could use some help with Bill's wheelchair and driving in Europe. David, a UCLA student, worked for us part-time. He helped Bill, drove him to the office and fixed everything. He was strong, quick, resourceful and best of all, sunny. So we asked if he'd like to share our trip and give us a hand in Europe. He did a thumbs up, flashed a smile and suddenly the three of us were flying to France.

David and Rick Eckstein, Whitey's boys, dressed beside each other in the National League clubhouse; David in his St. Louis Cardinal road grays, Rick in his Washington National grays. They were trying to enjoy David's first All-Star game. The league and Manager Tony La Russa were gracious enough to allow Rick, a minor league hitting instructor in the N.Y.-Penn League, to share the time.
