Schiff made a huge misstatement about Eskimos being unable to swim. Apparently the writer hasn't been in that region in summer, when some of the children (completely absent of clothing) do their swimming. ROBERT LEVIN Covina

Robert Levine, 41, a former executive editor of Billboard, sounds the alarm on Internet piracy and technology companies' economic war on the music, movies, television, book publishing and newspaper industries in "Free Ride: How Digital Parasites Are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back" (Doubleday). What made you decide this book needed to be written? The decision was gradual. When Napster came out I thought it was the greatest thing ever, like a lot of people did. I thought the Internet would give artists a way to reach fans directly and do business with them, and labels would have to compete and offer better deals.

Outbreaks like measles and rabies are standard worries for a public health officer, but as Dr. Robert M. Levin began his first day as Ventura County's top doctor, he was planning ways to combat a new and more dangerous health threat: terrorism. "I'm afraid atomic, biological and chemical terrorism is now an issue we have to prepare ourselves for," Levin said. "There are health and disease problems that would result with any of these attacks, and the public needs to know about the danger."

Inside his colonial duplex on a leafy street in Harvard Square, Mozart scholar, concert pianist and Harvard professor Robert Levin is lecturing to a class of one. Nearly 6 feet tall and dressed in two shades of his favorite color (royal purple shirt and plum-colored socks), he uses any one of six nearby keyboard instruments to illustrate his main point: the importance not just of reproducing Mozart's music but making it live.

Robert Levine knows all the stories. The gray-haired man talking with his wife over in the corner is a mob lawyer from the Midwest. The stout, mustachioed gentleman opposite him is a Mexican drug lord holding court with his extended family, complete with mournful wife, bored-looking daughter and solicitous son-in-law. Scattered about elsewhere in the linoleum-tiled waiting room on visiting day in the U.S.

Magazines will continue to woo Generation Xers and baby boomers--and now that publishers have discovered that the former have money, they want to offer help managing it. Starting this spring, P.O.V., a young men's lifestyle magazine, will give industrious twentysomethings career and financial advice, and Money will publish a test issue of a companion magazine aimed at twenty- and thirtysomethings. And as baby boomers settle down to home and hearth, magazines are doing the same.

Due to an unfortunate misspelling in David Crook's "Drive to Keep Artwork in Scotland Falls Short" (Dec. 24), one might get the false impression that Mantegna's "Adoration of the Magi" would be delicious with sushi and green tea. The correct spelling of the paint is tempera . Without that knowledge we might assume that as well as being a great painter, Mantegna also had a gift for Nippon ryori. ROBERT LEVIN Covina
