In attempting to attribute a deeper meaning to Mark Catesby's illustration of a bald eagle and a hawk, Suzanne Muchnic has gifted the British illustrator with a level of precognition not granted to most mortals ("Painting in a New World," May 4). For how else could Catesby have known that the bald eagle would become our republic's national symbol some 33 years after his death? Thank goodness for Catesby that Ben Franklin's suggestion that the wild turkey be adopted as the national symbol was not passed.

It always amuses me to read letters from people complaining about the supposedly undeserving success of various entertainment personalities. A case in point is the letter from Kay Klein (Calendar Letters, Jan. 3). Klein obviously dislikes David Letterman, and, of course, she is entitled to that opinion. She wonders how his show could possibly survive for 8 years. Well, it's quite simple. He is so good at what he does, so smooth, so effortless, that people like Klein think anybody could do it. Why do you think he never has guest hosts a la Carson?
