Farrow & Ball, the high-end British paint and wallpaper company, has a different way of adding glamour to your holiday house: a new, limited edition paper table runner. Forget about ironing last year's cloth runner. Farrow & Ball's paper simply unrolls on your table. The colors -- grays called Plummet and Calluna, plus festive silver -- are elegant complements to silver or gold table settings. And when you're done with dinner, perhaps you can use the paper to wrap gifts? The piece is inspired by Farrow & Ball's Ringwold wallpaper design.

Q: We have a beautiful, white Siberian husky, female, 9 months old. Ever since she was very young, she has been eating tissue paper, facial tissue, toilet tissue, paper napkins, hand towels etc. Once we realized how persistent she is, and that she gets "angry" whenever we take papers away from her, we have made a constant effort to keep all tissue-type paper out of her reach. Before we started keeping it away from her, she had occasionally thrown up large wads of tissue paper.

Relax, Harry Potter fans. J.K. Rowling now has plenty of paper. The author, a resident of Edinburgh, Scotland, who writes in longhand, is busy writing the seventh and final Potter book. She had complained last month that she was having a hard time finding writing paper. "Be careful what you wish for; it might come true," she wrote in a message posted earlier this week on her website. She said fans had deluged her with paper.

Re "A hot paper muzzles academia," Current, May 14 Eve Fairbanks claims that Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government was "nervous to be associated" with Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer's "Israel Lobby" paper, and she suggests that this nervousness came from the anticipated loss of donations. A more accurate explanation could be the paper's poor scholarship. Mearsheimer conceded that the paper contains no original documentation and that the authors did not conduct any independent interviews.

The U.S. commercial paper market shrank for a fourth week, extending the biggest slump in at least seven years, as investors balked at taking on debt backed by sub-prime mortgages. The amount of outstanding short-term debt maturing in 270 days or less fell $54.1 billion in the week ended Wednesday to a seasonally adjusted $1.93 trillion, the Federal Reserve reported. The volume of commercial paper outstanding has dropped $298.2 billion, or 13%, in the last month.

A Nobel laureate and her co-authors on a 2001 paper on the sense of smell have retracted the study, saying they had discovered problems in the data and were unable to duplicate their findings. Linda Buck shared the 2004 Nobel Prize in medicine for discovering odor-sensing proteins in the nose and tracing how the nervous system delivers odor information to the brain. It was not immediately clear how important the retracted research was to the body of work that led to her Nobel. The retracted paper reported details of how the nervous system of the mouse carries odor signals from the nose to a particular region of the brain.

Re "Local news front and center," March 3 Tuesday morning, when I picked up my skinny little newspaper, I was compelled to write this letter. I am one of the many people who love to read. I love the sensation of holding paper in hand and curling up in a favorite spot for a good story. Mine happens to be the back window, looking out over the garden. A well-lived life is made up of small but meaningful pleasures like this one. The loss of paper journalism is a travesty. It caters to our younger society, which wants things fast, short and preferably on a hand-held piece of technology.

"Inherent vice," observes Lisa Forman as she peers over her half glasses at a stack of newspapers. To a paper conservator like Forman, vice isn't about sloth or greed or lust. It's about rag content and acidity. The newspapers, printed by Japanese Americans interned by the U.S. government during World War II, are crumbling, partly because the newsprint contains the seeds of its own destruction--in conservator's language, inherent vice.

Already off to their best start in seven years, the Lakers are in good position to build on that considering the next seven games are against six teams that have a combined .284 winning percentage. None of the six, including Sacramento in a home-and-home Jan. 2-3, are better than eight games under .500. The catch is that the team with the worst record in that group, Boston at 5-17, has already defeated the Lakers.
