Red Suit

For Nancy Reagan, it's the little red suit. For Larry King, it's his trademark suspenders. For Cher, black Spandex.

Based on its premiere, "The Flash" traps a speedy man in a slow series. It debuts with a two-hour movie at 8 tonight on CBS (Channels 2 and 8), bringing America a superhero spun from a DC Comics character who fights crime with blinding velocity.

Those probably were not visions of sugarplums dancing through the head of the man I spied dozing on a bench in Santa Monica's Palisades Park. I leaned over him and offered my heartiest Ho! Ho! Ho!

I read with pleasure Jane Engle's article on the new Winston Churchill Museum ["Churchill, Moment by Moment," Feb. 6].
