Many thanks for the story by staff writer Bob Secter "One American's Way: Work, Be Helpful" (Feb. 12). It was so refreshing to read this positive article regarding the attitudes and behavior of Richard Kelly at his work! LOUISE A. WARRINER, Big Bear Lake

Corporate America--smarmy, leveraged, cutthroat America; discount, high-volume, bargain-price, service-with-a-snarl America--could sure learn a thing or two from Richard Kelly. For starters, he is living proof that status and a fast buck need not be the only barometers of success in today's marketplace. Kelly, pushing 60, has spent more than 35 years at the Jewel supermarket in this well-heeled Chicago suburb and has never moved higher than grocery sacker on the organizational ladder.

A dense hybrid of teen angst and science fiction, a metaphysical meditation on the nature of being and time travel aided by the presence of a 6-foot-tall bunny rabbit, "Donnie Darko" hit theaters in the fall of 2001 with a resounding thud of indifference.

Then a funny thing happened on the way to being forgotten.

The day Domino Harvey died, she called her former partner, Ed Martinez, to reminisce about old times -- the three violent, thrilling years they spent together as bounty hunters in South Los Angeles. Harvey, daughter of the late British actor Laurence Harvey and supermodel Paulene Stone, had led a tormented, eccentric existence. She ran a London dance club, worked as a ranch hand in San Diego, then became a "bail recovery agent," hunting fugitives and carrying a shotgun she called Betsy.
