Once again the Mellon family has come to the aid of the National Gallery of Art, the museum founded by Andrew Mellon. The Richard King Mellon Foundation of Pittsburgh, Pa., one of the nation's wealthiest private foundations, has guaranteed that the once-in-a-lifetime Johannes Vermeer exhibition at the National Gallery will remain open through the end of its scheduled run on Feb. 11--regardless of when the federal government reopens.

Thanks to several kind and helpful readers, I've learned more about wetlands during this last week than I knew questions to ask about them. A former marine biologist with the state Department of Fish and Game, John F. Janssen of Stanton, has corroborated the estimate quoted in last week's column that we have lost the greater part of the important wetlands. "We have lost over 80% of our California wetlands. I think the figure is closer to 90%."
