Thousands of years before the discovery of microbes or the invention of antibiotics, silver was used to protect wounds from infection and to preserve food and water. The alluring metal - which was fashioned into a multitude of curative coins, sutures, foils, cups and solutions - all but vanished from medical use once physicians began using anti-bacterial drug agents to fight sickness in the 1940s. But now, as bacteria grow increasingly resistant to these medications and new pathogens invade hospitals, some doctors are turning once again to the lustrous element that Hippocrates prescribed for patients in ancient Greece.

He later served in Korea and Vietnam.

I'm so tired of reading about "young upstarts" fighting the Hollywood system ("Back Behind the Bar," by Patrick Goldstein, April 13). Here's a couple of ideas for Troy Duffy: First, try AA or at least stop drinking for a while, since I'll bet almost all the supposed fights and problems you've had were alcohol-related. Second, take some writing and directing classes so when you go to those meetings, or meet with actors, you know a little bit about what you're talking about. That helps in getting people interested in your script.

In a medical diagnosis that seems lifted from a script of the "X-Files," Clipper guard James Collins was put on the injured list Friday because of a strained lower back. What's so amazing about that? Collins was across the country when his injury was "discovered," having gone to Florida on Thursday because of the death of an aunt in Jacksonville.

Heads rolled as the Clippers sliced their roster in preparation for Friday's opener. But when all the damage had been done, there was, at least for now, one unexpected survivor: free-agent rookie guard James Collins, a 6-foot-4, 196-pounder from Florida State. Not so fortunate were 11-year veteran forward Rodney McCray, two-year center Rich Manning, rookie guard Kiwane Garris and rookie center Nate Huffman. All were cut, leaving the Clippers with 13 players, one above the limit.
