Golden moment with Huell Howser I will never forget the day at the end of 1998 that my friend Eva and I met Huell Howser ["What Made Him Huell," by Christopher Reynolds, Jan.13]. We had just visited St. Sophia Cathedral, inspired by one of Howser's shows, and afterward went to C&K (Greek) Importing for lunch. To our amazement and delight, in walked Howser, the nicest guy in the world. He graciously allowed us to take a group photo with himself and the owner of the restaurant, Papa Cristo, one of his many friends.

Lee Dembart's provocative review of "Intoxication" has provoked me, not to read the book, but to offer to Prof. Siegel for his experiments one 6-foot, 7-inch, 30-year-old male hominid, "healthy as an ox" but for an emergency room visit for what I suspect was a miscalculation in dosage. This specimen has been in what appears to me to be Siegel's "fourth drive" and "feeling different" for about 14 years, and generally behaving like Siegel's other laboratory animals. My specimen has adopted a "minimalist" life style (working three hours in the afternoons)
