It's sort of embarrassing--not the kind of thing he likes to talk about, obviously--but Jerry Biederman looks relieved after confessing his little secret: "I get an Easter basket from my parents every year." So? "I'm Jewish, and I'm 33, and I still get a basket," says Biederman, his eyes widening. "Now that's a real secret!" He ought to know.

I enjoyed Howard Leff's "Envy? Has a Ring to It" [June 2]. It especially caught my eye because my brother Danny owns Maxwell Smart's shoe phone! He has 4,000 items from spy movies and TV series in his Spy-Fi Archives (odci.gov/spyfi/index.html). A few years ago the CIA contacted him and asked him to bring the best items from his collection to CIA headquarters for a private exhibition; he also had a display recently at the Reagan Library. The shoe phone was the star of the show -- even beat out Austin Powers' glasses and Tom Cruise's gadgets from "Mission Impossible."

Psssst. Our topic today is secrets. And to get things going, what I'm about to reveal is just between you and me and the other 1.2 million readers of this newspaper: When I was in the third grade, my best friend was named Ronnie. Then Bobby moved to our block and he became my other best friend. One day Bobby and I were mad at Ronnie's parents and Bobby dared me to throw their afternoon newspaper on the roof. So I did it.

Teddy bears have become the symbol of survival and healing. The children of those killed are being given the bears by a variety of public agencies. Dana Cooper, 24, director of the Americas Kids child care center, was killed in the blast along with her 2-year-old son, Anthony Cooper II. She was also studying child development at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond. On Thursday, fellow students put a teddy bear and small wreath at Cooper's desk.

Jerry Biederman and I spent a full minute and a half establishing that, despite our shared last name, we don't also share an aunt in Brooklyn or a second cousin in Chicago. Nor am I related to his uncle, best-selling author Irving Wallace. That out of the way, we got down to business. The business was romance. More properly, the business was the business of romance. I always think about that this time of year, when long-stemmed roses are more expensive than abalone.

I have been invited by Jerry Biederman, its editor, to write a column for "The Future Times," a book of articles to be written by contemporary journalists as if they were written two decades from now--in 2007. Biederman says he has also invited such stars as Jimmy Breslin, Ellen Goodman, Liz Smith, Garry Trudeau, Abigail Van Buren, George F. Will and Bob Woodward to contribute. That would put me in very fast company indeed.
