RE "Sound and Fury in the Garden" [Aug. 18]: Letter writer Sally Johnstone is concerned about the dust that leaf blowers deposit on people's cars, homes, pools and birdbaths, but she left out the single most important dust catcher of all: our lungs! JAYCIE INGERSOLL Beverly Hills

Who would expect to find an art show in a real estate office, even an agency devoted to architectural properties? Melinda Fay organized the Good Eye Gallery show "Home as Art," which she describes as a pop-up with more than 70 works, all installed throughout the nondescript Banner Los Robles corporate building in Pasadena where Deasy/Penner & Partners keeps its offices. Artworks hang in offices, in hallways, from the ceiling. The concentration of emerging and mid-career artists means there are several affordable gift-giving opportunities in this countdown to Christmas: Small paintings by South Pasadena artist Jordan Daines begin at $220, and handmade silk leaf mobiles by Jan Carson are $200 apiece.

I wanted to comment on Leslee Komaiko's Caesar salad bit in Restaurant Journal ("Render Unto Caesar That Which Is Leafy," Feb. 25). I have strong opinions about the Caesar salad and know a little about it as a result of my being from Tijuana, my dad having owned a Caesar-serving steakhouse there in the 1960s, and my having done research in Tijuana, as a freelance food writer, for various food stories. I too have noticed a lot of whole-leaf Caesars (WLCs) out there, and as far as I'm concerned, this is good news.

I was so disappointed in Randy Lewis' pedestrian piece, "Exploring New Frontiers" [Oct. 21]. My gosh, he missed what makes "Has Been" great: humor! Folds and Shatner have created a masterpiece that creatively balances the gravity of real life and its absurdity. What about the comic "I Can't Get Behind That," in which Shatner and Henry Rollins trade heated gripes about leaf blowers and Valley girl talk to a wonderfully orchestrated Folds cacophony? Even if Shatner and Folds didn't intend this result (which I can't believe)

by Robert Graves I had long known the diverse tastes of the wood, Each leaf, each bark, rank earth from every hollow; Knew the smells of bird's breath and of bat's wing; Yet sight I lacked: until you stole upon me, Touching my eyelids with light finger-tips. The trees blazed out, their colours whirled together, Nor ever before had I been aware of sky. From "Erotic Poems," selected and edited by Peter Washington (Everyman's Library/Alfred A. Knopf: 286 pp., $10.95)
