I was very pleased to read Andrew Bender's article on cheap (but quality) eats in Tokyo ["Stretching Your Yen in Tokyo," Jan. 14]. I travel to Japan -- mostly Tokyo -- for pleasure twice a year. Like Bender, I often get asked if eating in Japan is expensive, as if eating at Nobu-style restaurants is the norm. It was great to see some of my favorite places listed, especially Kyushu Jangara ramen, where I took some friends from England who met me in Tokyo over New Year's. They didn't understand why I nearly forced them to go until they sipped the soup base and sighed.

Peter Carl Fabergé, Google doodle recipient, lived a Humpty Dumpty kind of life -- specializing in the delicate and ending with a great fall. The master goldsmith and jeweler who founded the House of Fabergé was beloved by Russian czars and turned out fantastical baubles and jewel-encrusted gewgaws for the aristocracy. Then came the Russian Revolution, which destroyed his way of life and spurned what he loved best: objects of exquisite luxury. Fabergé was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1846. The doodle is celebrating the 166th anniversary of his birth.

Two votes for Willie Brown Re "Patt Morrison Asks: Willie Brown, State's man," Column, Aug. 21 What a great interview. Never a lightweight, Willie Brown displays his real knowledge of political power and how to use it for the public benefit. His wisdom on what term limits have done, and perhaps how campaign finance should be so transparent and therefore easy, is just brilliant. How about a write-in candidacy for Brown? I'm pretty sure he knows the answers and how to fix California.

In yet another leap forward in the treatment of infertility, two separate groups of researchers report that they have achieved births resulting from eggs that had been frozen before being thawed and injected with sperm. The long-awaited accomplishment will eventually have widespread repercussions not only for the treatment of infertility but on the continuing ethical debate over the uses and misuses of human eggs and sperm, experts said.
