I write to express my agreement with reader Sherry Quesada (Letters, Dec. 17) that the Travel section, my favorite part of the Sunday paper and largely the reason I subscribe to it, is shrinking in quantity and quality. I long for the olden days when Jerry Hulse was the editor and the Travel section was thick, informative, comprehensive and always filled with great stories and tidbits of insight. Your current editor and staff do a sufficient job, and they deserve praise. However, I think there is much room for improvement.

I was sorry to hear of the death of former Times Travel editor Jerry Hulse. As a teen and adult living in Los Angeles in the '60s and '70s, I read his travel columns regularly. I have since visited 45 countries, and I often used Hulse's advice in making travel plans. MARK LOOY Florence, Ky.

He was 77. Hulse died at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank. He underwent double hernia surgery several days ago, family members said.

OPINION
January 30, 2002
If ever there was a poster image of the age of travel innocence, the photo of Jerry Hulse is it ("Jerry Hulse, 77; Times Travel Editor," obituary, Jan. 26). Was it just American travel innocence? I think so. We could buy a ticket, get on an airplane and just go someplace. The principal complaint was the food, as if airlines, no matter what the advertisements said, could ever be three-star restaurants. Our travel was limited by income, not fear of terrorists. The innocence was lost after the first hijacking and the advent of metal detectors.

Regarding "My Own Private Paradise" (March 1): What an enjoyable article written by Jerry Hulse about his six-month visit to the island of Kauai as he contemplates his future. I know one thing for certain, Jerry: Retirement is a shortcut to the grave. You have far too much talent and lust for life to spend the rest of your days attending "Paralyzer Parties" at the Tahiti Nui. You have a wonderful way with words, and your readers are transported to your destination and enjoy your experiences.

It is dawn and save for the sound of ocean waves washing beneath my window, my world is as silent as a shining star. Last evening it rained so that today the sky is as blue as a young girl's eyes. All would be well if only that infernal rooster outside my door would stop crowing at midnight. The bird awakens me with a shrill crow that fizzles to a sputtering stop. It seems exhausted. I think it spent too much time in the henhouse.

Read my lip service. Americans preach honesty to their children while passively accepting dishonesty from those who shape and define the universe in which they live. That's because lying has become so institutionalized in the United States that society is now largely desensitized to it. Meet the usual suspects: Television routinely tells lies--white ones, pastel ones and darker ones, falsely advertising, falsely promoting and falsely reporting. Politicians routinely tell lies.

With the retirement of Jerry Hulse, you've lost the poetry and heart of the Travel Section. His writing of even the mundane spots made you want to pack and go, go, go. Y. B. WILSON Del Mar

Jerry Hulse's (last column) ("Farewell to Unmet Friends," June 7) started me thinking about a flight I had between April 1 and May 2, 1951. I was a captain on three separate airplanes that flew around the world. Before I departed on the trip, my boss called me to his office and explained that we would have a young newspaper reporter with us. His name was Jerry Hulse and he then worked for a small newspaper in the San Fernando Valley. It was soon after this that Jerry joined the Times.

It might have been daunting to take over the Travel section from, well, an institution, but I continue to enjoy the section as it has evolved. Nevertheless, I put off reading Jerry Hulse's farewell column until this morning because I knew it would make me cry. It did. Jerry was a great editor because he is a great writer, blessed with an observant eye and a soft heart. For those of us who love traveling more for those tiny moments of discovery than for the "grand tour" experience, Jerry has been a kindred spirit, whether blazing new trails or giving a fresh perspective on a place we all thought we knew.
