This is in response to the excellent article written by Denise Hamilton (Jan. 5) regarding Department 95 of the Los Angeles Superior Court where hearings pertaining to mental competency are conducted. Hamilton is to be commended for accurately describing the pathetic system we use in dealing with people with brain diseases. Through impartial documentation of court activities, she revealed the many problems encountered daily by mentally ill people and the judicial staff. Although it must be difficult for judges to decide who should be hospitalized and who should be released, the real tragedy is that those who are discharged are turned out into a community that has little to offer for care and treatment.

While it is in fact old news that revival theaters have been disappearing, due to a decline in audience interest in certain classic, revival and cult films, it is absolutely wrong to conclude from my comments a general decline in interest in "art" films ("Bringing the Movies Closer to Home--But Art Houses are Doing a Big Fade Out in L.A.," by Denise Hamilton, Nov. 23). Our 29 non-revival screens, including the Samuel Goldwyn Pavilion Cinemas, are successfully playing many first-run "art" films.

In regards to Denise Hamilton's article on the historic Encino Indian archeological site (Aug. 25), my misgivings as indicated to her in July about talking to most reporters continue to be confirmed by the misinformation given about me in her article, this after more than an hour's conversation and ending in print as two sentences. To be specific, I was not "hired by Desautels" in any way to be involved in the Encino site, nor for that matter, in any of her past work in Encino.

Linda Marsa's article "Last Days Needn't Be Spent in Agony," as well as other related stories in the Aug. 20 issue, were excellent and, in my case, very timely. I just realized that it was time to update my 10-year-old documents, such as my living will and the durable power of attorney for health care. I am grateful for the Web sites you listed for downloading blank forms. I would just like to add something I learned from experience. It is true that many private insurance plans do not specifically cover in-home hospice care; however, many insurance companies' case managers will be humane and understanding enough to approve hospice care under the policy's "visits by registered nurses" provision.

While Los Angeles is a big perfume hub, the Bay Area more than holds its own. "San Francisco has a great artistic vibe.... There is a Wild West energy here … artists, chefs, chocolatiers, writers and designers cross-pollinate ideas regularly," says Bay Area perfumer Yosh Han. Han, whose mother was an ikebana master, is influenced by her work in a flower shop as well as Eastern medicine and philosophy. But she attributes her career to kismet: The Chinese character for her name means "aroma.
