Twenty well-known artists have donated works to a Bonhams & Butterfields auction to benefit Morgan Thomas, a former Los Angeles art dealer and founder of the nonprofit Foundation for Art Resources. The sale -- to be simulcast in Los Angeles and San Francisco at 2 p.m. Monday -- is expected to raise from $50,000 to $75,000 to help Thomas pay expenses she incurred after she was injured in an automobile accident eight years ago. Thomas' longtime colleagues Connie Lewallen, Claire Copley and Dorit Cypis organized the benefit, soliciting works by artists such as John Baldessari, Peter Alexander, Tom Lawson, David Amico and Jim Shaw.

Got a record player? If you didn't chuck it out at some point during the successive waves of new technologies that rolled over recent decades--eight-track tape, cassette, CD--can the player that you kept accommodate a 45? Does it have a fat spindle that fits the big hole in the middle? If not, did you keep the spindle adapter? And if records themselves are today an endangered species, has a spindle adapter yet made the transition from plain household object to precious, hard-to-find antique?

The Dec. 11 article "No Quorum, so Panel Has No Stance on El Toro Flight Test" incorrectly attributes to me statements that are not mine. You incorrectly quote me in reference to Orange County officials as saying, "Yes, I think they'll cheat." While I do have serious objections to the county's handling of El Toro reuse issues, I have never formed those words, nor would I choose that characterization, which is unnecessary and inflammatory.
