This 1992 release comes at you like a tomahawk. Hard, fast and brutal, it slashes and leaves you for dead. Undeniably exciting as this definitely is, its impact comes at the expense of some of the gentler virtues, qualities that even top-drawer barn-burners really shouldn't ignore.

Change of Seasons: Twentieth Century Fox has postponed the release of the film "The Last of the Mohicans" from this summer until the fall, saying it wants to put the movie in the best position for consideration for Academy Awards nominations. Directed by Michael Mann (of TV's "Miami Vice"), the film stars Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe in an adventure/romance set against the war between England and France and their American Indian allies.

In "Myth of the Whale" (Oct. 31), you omitted the etymology of the ship's name in Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick," the Pequod. Melville derived the ship's name from the Indian tribe, the Pequods or Pequots (there are several variant spellings). The Puritans massacred the Pequots in 1636 and subsequently drove them into slavery, exile and almost to extinction. The Puritan commander who was responsible for the slaughter at Mystic, Conn., was Capt. John Mason, a direct ancestor of mine.

Regarding "Having the Wrong Name Can Hold You Up," about the government's airline security "selectee list" (Business Itinerary, July 15): I had a similar experience with being on the selectee list and found the article very accurate. I fly frequently and have had repeated problems like those you described for traveler James Fenimore Cooper. However, the article left the impression that a person could clear things up by sending notarized documents to the Transportation Security Administration.
