Barbara Hutton was not an actress ("Hot Property," May 16). She was the Woolworth heiress and was worth $80 million to $100 million in 1935. When she and actor Cary Grant married, the newspaper headline read "Cash and Cary Married." You were no doubt thinking of Betty Hutton, the actress who starred in many of Hollywood's big musicals. She also starred in Cecil B. DeMille's "The Greatest Show on Earth." JOHN S. CLAREY South Pasadena

The khaki crowd, bleary-eyed at 7:45 a.m., crams around the Diedrich coffee hut. Programmers from Cisco Systems Inc., waiting impatiently for their double cappuccinos, chat about the latest project hurdle. A manager from America Online Inc. eavesdrops. Behind them, a salesman from start-up Biz2biz-.com gabs on a cell phone cradled in the crook of his neck as he jots on a Palm organizer balanced on top of a large latte. A typical scene in Silicon Valley.
