Samuel Adams, a consultant on the CBS documentary that provoked a libel suit by retired Gen. William C. Westmoreland, filed a $75-million libel suit Tuesday against writer Renata Adler in Alexandria, Va. Adams, a former CIA intelligence analyst who was a defendant in Westmoreland's suit, charges that he was defamed by two articles she wrote for the New Yorker magazine. The pieces, later published in a book entitled "Reckless Disregard," criticized CBS'defense against Westmoreland's suit.

Add Samuel Adams to the growing list of beers available in cans. The Boston Beer Co. said it will start selling its popular Samuel Adams Boston Lager in cans for the first time this summer, the Associated Press reports. The move will allow beer fans to take the popular lager places where glass bottles may not be allowed, such as pools, parks, beaches and sporting events. Once considered to impair the taste of fine beers, cans are now used by more than 180 craft breweries, according to the website ontaponline.com.

Re "Secessionists Invoke the Spirit of '76," July 27: The Declaration of Independence is our nation's most cherished symbol of liberty. It was the work of Thomas Jefferson and the other leaders of the 13 colonies. They included John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Samuel Adams, all of whom participated in the birth of a nation and a struggle against tyranny--as a world watched. Our freedom from taxation without representation was one of the liberties fought for in the American Revolutionary War. And the San Fernando Valley, since it first became part of Los Angeles, has been represented fully in accordance with the laws of this land.

Hooray for Bella Lewitzky ("Choreographer Rejects NEA's $72,000 Grant," by Allan Parachini, June 15). How many of us have such a commitment to First Amendment rights that we would turn down $72,000 because of a censorship clause? The First Amendment is undergoing an attack unparalleled in recent memory. An amendment is proposed to make it illegal to burn the flag, a symbol standing for the very concepts that such an amendment would violate. It is repulsive to the concept of free speech that China could execute a student for burning a flag; freedom-loving people the world over cheered as Eastern Europeans burned their flags in protesting the tyranny of their governments.

Re Vernon D. Sanders' letter, "How to Define One's Fate in Hollywood" (Saturday Letters, Nov. 12): I attended the Humanitas lecture on "NYPD Blue." David Milch did state that the writing for a seminar he led was not good enough for submission as a television writing sample. But Milch also said he started that seminar to create more opportunities for minority writers. And, after the Humanitas lecture, Milch invited the African American writers present to submit writing samples to him. As for Milch's comment, "I'm racist," I think it was an honest recognition that prejudice exists in all of us. I'm far more suspicious of any person who declares him or herself free of racism.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period.  They kicked off their weight loss "strategies" on Jan. 10 . My buddy Chris has been a Lakers season ticket holder for about 10 years. Which means for roughly a decade we would meet outside Staples Center, get through the metal detector, grab some beers and dogs and nachos, and watch some high quality hoop. Because they are Chris' tickets, I usually pay for the food and beverages.

Samuel Adams Brewing Verloren "Verloren" means "lost" in German, and this beer certainly deserves the name. It's in a style called Gose (GOH-zuh), which was originally made with water from the tiny Gose River in Saxony. At one time, this was the typical beer of Leipzig, but in the last century it almost died out several times. Since Americans have never heard of it, it goes without saying that this is a limited release. So what is it? A wheat ale flavored with coriander and salt.

Fall is upon us, so brewers are making pumpkin ales. Boston Beer Co. has been offering one for a long time, Samuel Adams Harvest Ale, which is notable for using English hops and both caramel and smoked malts in the mash. And pumpkin, of course. Harvest Ale throws 17 pounds of pumpkin into each barrel. This year the brewery is trying out a version that punches up the pumpkin. Fat Jack uses 28 pounds per barrel (the pumpkin contributing a little sugar as well as its flavor). Batch No. 1 pours dark red amber, almost mahogany color, with a high yellowish tan head.

Question: Something bad has happened to my Boston Beer Co. shares, and I want to know if problems will continue. Answer: The maker of Samuel Adams beer must contend with the higher cost of barley, a key ingredient in its brews, as well as competitive pressures. Although it is the leading producer in the highly fragmented U.S. craft brew industry, it accounts for less than 1% of the total U.S. beer market. Growth potential therefore is a major consideration for its stock.

It was supposed to be a brief stop at the Primadonna casino, 43 miles south of Las Vegas, but one poker game led to another. By 3 a.m. May 25, 1997, Jeremy Strohmeyer and David Cash were tired of hanging around the arcade, waiting for David's dad. Bored, the two 18-year-olds decided to urinate on two coin-operated games. David chose Big Bertha, whose polka-dot dress flared when players hurled balls into her gaping red mouth. Jeremy selected a helicopter game. Then a wall socket.

Samuel A. Adams, a one-time Central Intelligence Agency analyst who became a co-defendant in Gen. William C. Westmoreland's celebrated libel suit against CBS over the supposed manipulation of enemy troop strength in Vietnam, has been found dead. Adams, whose accusations helped form the basis of the CBS documentary that resulted in the Westmoreland suit, was found at his home here on Monday. He was 55 and apparently suffered a heart attack.
