If the French hotelier Andree Brunet wrote a book about U.S. travelers, it would not feature "ugly" Americans, but brave ones. Her conclusions are drawn from personal observations during 25 years as managing director of the Chateau du Domaine St.-Martin in the Provencal hill town of Vence. The courage and exuberant curiosity of Americans amazes her. "They are such explorers," she said as we sat in the shade of a grape arbor in the chateau gardens last fall.

On a January afternoon, the temperature hovers in the upper teens, the sky threatening to blanket the coal-rich hills of West Virginia with snow. Inside the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, in the small town of Weston, it's five or 10 degrees colder. The heating hasn't worked since the Weston State Hospital -- as the mental institution was also known -- closed in 1994. The 2 1/2 -foot thick limestone walls provide better insulation than a modern refrigerator. Planning your trip Themed tours of the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum , 71 Asylum Drive, Weston, W.Va.

School: Irvine High Sport: Baseball Position: Pitcher/right fielder Class: Senior After reaching base seven consecutive times in Irvine's first two games last week, Seal raised expectations so high that his teammates kidded him when the streak ended with a sacrifice fly. It was the kind of week in which nearly nothing went wrong for Seal, whose pitching and hitting helped the Vaqueros win three games in the Santa Ana Elks tournament.

Bradford Freeman is an old friend of President Bush and one of a handful described as a member of his inner circle. Freeman is also Bush's California fundraising leader, and he loves to tell the story of how the president-elect called him with what Freeman hoped would be a prestigious appointment as an ambassador or maybe a secret agent. The kind of reward that, in the realpolitik of campaign finance, a rainmaker like Freeman might realistically anticipate.

Re "U.S. embraces Chalabi again," Nov. 13 Back before the Iraq war, millions of U.S. tax dollars were being given to Ahmad Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress. Considering that what we got in return was a bunch of misinformation to help our president start a war, I think it would be a good time to see exactly where that money went. It doesn't surprise me that this administration wants to do business with this man again.
