I am upset with Gustav Lopez's Nov. 23 letter. I really don't believe U.S. citizens think Mexico's drinking and driving laws are any different. There is one major difference [when] driving under the influence of alcohol on U.S. highways and in Mexico. In the U.S. one can drive illegally without insurance, get free medical care if necessary, then sue the restaurant or bar that served you and go home rich. In Mexico you go straight to jail and there is no medical care with or without money.

Most TV fans of a certain age know the answer to the question, "Who played the Lone Ranger?" Those who say Clayton Moore are correct, at least partially. There was another actor who played the Masked Man on "The Lone Ranger" TV series, temporarily replacing Moore in the title role for 52 episodes beginning in 1952. John Hart, 91, the handsome and athletic actor who also starred in the 1940s movie serial "Jack Armstrong: The All-American Boy" and the 1950s TV series "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans," died Sunday at his home in Rosarito Beach in Baja California, said his wife, Beryl.
