Re the article on Dr. James Person, " 'He Respects Us, and We Respect Him,' " March 9: I've always been a firm believer in school choice as the best medicine for transforming our ailing urban schools. All we need to do is "choose" to commit ourselves to recruiting and filling our urban schools with teachers, counselors and principals like Person at Hollenbeck Middle School. And once we have done this, we would then "choose" to support, embrace, and generously reward these educators in the same way as Person supports and loves his students.

There were no ghostly votive candles, no eerie organ music, no shards of light piercing through dusty velvet curtains. Still, the place had a definite shrine-like quality: a feeling that excellence and expertise had lovingly coexisted here in James Beard's cluttered Greenwich Village kitchen. One sensed that in this well-used Cuisinart, with this proudly battered KitchenAid mixer, whimsy and creativity had been raised to the level of a serious, incontrovertible form of art.

Readers hoping for more erotic exploits with a certain domineering millionaire and innocent college student will be sorely disappointed. Speaking at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Monday night, "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James told the New York Post that her next novel will be, shall we say, tamer than her first. It "won't nearly be so raunchy," James is quoted as saying, "and I will probably write it under another name. "  Although James has told readers in the past that "I'm looking forward to bringing you some new love stories I've got planned," she says she is unlikely to write another book about the sexy stars of ' "Fifty Shades," Ana Steele and Christian Grey.

L.A. Times book critic David L. Ulin saw "Gatz" this weekend. He's a longtime reader of F. Scott Fitzgerald (who isn't?) and we'll talk about what a play like "Gatz" means for literary adaptations. Join Ulin and me here Tue. at 10 a.m. "Gatz" is the faithful-to-the-word stage adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," which has just opened in Los Angeles. But it's hardly the only literary adaptation this season. There are a pile of films -- "Anna Karenina," "Life of Pi," "The Hobbit," "On the Road" -- that all try to bring beloved classics to life.
