ARDMORE, Pa. - After he made birdie on No. 15 Saturday, Michael Kim glanced at a scoreboard. The 19-year-old amateur was tied for third at the U.S. Open. "I wasn't looking to see what place I was in or how many shots back I was," he said. "I just thought it was super cool to see my name on that big leaderboard next to the leaders like [ Charl ] Schwartzel , [ Phil ] Mickelson , [ Luke ] Donald , all those guys. " Alas, it didn't last. Kim's bogey-double bogey-bogey finish dropped him to 10th place, five shots behind Mickelson.

Rue. The name alone should give you pause. This low-growing perennial has been a domesticated herb for thousands of years, particularly in Europe. It grows easily in bad soil, propagates on its own and puts out bright yellow flowers that attract swallowtail butterflies. It's drought tolerant and is a habitat for a beneficial parasitic wasp that feeds on that annoying garden pest, white fly. But be careful around rue, especially on sunny days. The unassuming blue-green leaves of Ruta graveolens are sprinkled with tiny glands containing rutin, a light-sensitive oil that can raise blisters on bare skin.

Rue is a handsome garden herb with bluish-green leaves and cross-shaped yellow flowers. Its other name is herb of grace, and it has often been used for religious purposes such as the sprinkling of holy water. In many places, the fumes of burning rue are considered purifying. The belief is alive, for instance, in present-day Uzbekistan, where you may see people burning rue at the entrances to Tashkent's subway system.

When Elena Mauli was a little girl growing up in Paris in the 1980s, an old woman named Louise Brunet lived alone in an apartment above her family. When she died, no one came to collect her things. The landlord allowed the other tenants to take whatever they liked. Elena's mother chose a box of mementos, which Elena has carried with her every since. This novel is based on the contents of that box. It is a lovely book, full of facsimile reprints of yellowing old letters, with their looping, elegant handwriting; old photographs and evocative ephemera ?

Shakespeare said it all: "... That we but teach Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return To plague the inventor; this even-handed justice Commends the ingredients of our poison'd chalice To our own lips. The House will long rue the day that Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) opened Pandora's box. GEORGE MARGO Malibu

I am currently working on a biography of the great French entertainer Maurice Chevalier. Could anyone who knew him in his Hollywood stays, both before the second World War (1929-1934) and after the war, kindly get in touch with Edward Behr, 86 rue de Monceau, Paris 75008, France.

Only one road comes here, and its hairpin bends straighten at the entrance of town. Then the road squeezes between two rows of gray houses and becomes a steep main street. Right there, the sole business of this French village of 950 hits you square in the nose. The briny, pungent smell of Roquefort cheese is everywhere. But this is to be expected, considering that 6 million wheels of Roquefort cheese are left to age in the village caves every year.

A correction in Karen Grigsby Bates' interesting article about Richard Wright ("The Fire the First Time," Sept. 3) for those readers who might be inspired "to take the detour" to visit Wright's flat at No. 14 or the restaurant Polidor down the street. It will be a pretty big detour unless they go to rue Monsieur-le-Prince and not rue Maitre-le-Prince, as stated in the article. Try looking it up in your Paris Guide and you'll see what I mean. Some other rue Monsieur-le-Prince residents also included James Whistler at No. 22, Longfellow at No. 49 and Oliver Wendell Holmes at No. 55. As for the Polidor, it opened 150 years ago, its official name is Cremerie-Restaurant Polidor and Kerouac, Hemingway, Andre Gide and James Joyce, among others, have eaten there.

Imagine a place where people are assigned to a district by lottery, where they hone archery and slingshot skills and zip-line through dense forests to fight to the death for their own survival. It happens in the movie "The Hunger Games," which opened Friday, but it also will start happening in the woods of North Carolina, where the movie was shot. OK, maybe not the fight to the death part. But the much-anticipated movie has spawned a "Hunger Games" adventure weekend where children as young as 10 years old (with an adult)

-- Boston-based Kynetic, which operates designer discount website Rue La La, underwent major layoffs and intends to close its SmartBargains.com site, a report says. The Boston Business Journal reported that Kynetic laid off 11% of its 550 workers as part of a restructuring designed to allow the company to "double down" on its core business. Part of the shake-up involves outsourcing the sales force for Rue La La's city-specific portals called Rue Local. "These moves unfortunately resulted in the elimination of some staff positions," the company said.

When Vice President Joe Biden slipped into Baghdad this month to commemorate the end of eight bloody years of war in Iraq, there was one face conspicuously absent from the host of solemn ceremonies and farewell meetings he attended: that of Ahmad Chalabi. The Iraqi politician, who lived in exile before Saddam Hussein's ouster, is shunned by Washington these days. But there has never been a foreigner more crucially involved in a decision by the United States to go to war than Ahmad Chalabi.

My wife and I have just returned from France and London and wanted to thank you for two recommendations ("London's Small Hotels," Jan. 8, and "Encore Paris," Feb. 5) which helped make the trip affordable. Hotel St. Louis and The Claverly were wonderful. The St. Louis was superb and near good restaurants and the Seine. The Claverly was a real find. Beautiful. Clean. Good service and location. Hotel St. Louis is at 75 Rue St.-en-Isle (75004 Paris). The Claverly is located at 13-14 Beaufort Gardens, Knightsbridge, London SW13 1PS. CLIFF DEKTAR North Hollywood

If you're going to Paris, be aware of a group of young Gypsies who pickpocket on the Rue de Rivoli around the hotels. They also work the Tuilleries Gardens and the area around the Jeu de Peume. They approach by begging, and a young man holds up a sign in front of your face to distract you, while two girls swarm all over you. They took money and travelers checks from an inside upper pocket of a man's suit. This was at 9 a.m. in front of the hotel when there was no one on the street. I saw them again the following day at 3 in the afternoon, this time walking in the crowds on the Rue de Rivoli.

As the wild celebrations of a new beginning continued Saturday in Tahrir Square, the atmosphere was decidedly more subdued seven miles away near the Heliopolis Sporting Club and President Hosni Mubarak's former official residence. To be sure, there were some in this wealthy Cairo suburb who were ecstatic. A few who waved large Egyptian flags from their car windows as they passed through the wide tree-lined boulevards planned by a Belgian baron a century ago. But there was none of the horn-thumping taking place in the central square that had been the heart of the revolt against Mubarak.

He is haunted still, nearly half a century later. He failed to get the bunt down. His team failed to win the World Series. That sickening feeling might never entirely go away. However, should the San Francisco Giants win the World Series, Felipe Alou will feel just a bit better about himself, and about what he could not do in 1962. "Of course," Alou said Saturday. "It's for the fans in San Francisco. Every time you pick up a newspaper, you read how we haven't won it in San Francisco yet. For this group to be the first group of players to win in San Francisco, that would really be something.
