Regarding "Off the Walls," (March 8): The quotation missing from Sergio Ortiz's beautiful article about Granada and "The Moor's Sigh" were the terrible words of Boabdil's mother, Ayeshah: "Weep as a woman over what you could not defend as a man." JOSE M. CUETO Santa Ana

What a great article on Whidbey Island ("Eyeful of an Island," June 18). It's our favorite vacation spot. But author Sergio Ortiz must have missed our best place to relax: the Langley Tea Room in Langley, open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except Wednesdays. It's peaceful and has the best scones this side of London--made daily. ALLEN and MARY BERTOGLIO West Covina

Among the photos accompanying Sergio Ortiz's article ("Falling in Love With Lucca," Sept. 22) was one that, at first glance, I was sure had to be of a painting. "Bus Stop," with the two elderly ladies, is absolute magic. The sense of poignancy and strength of the two women is powerful, creating the feeling that a little drama is about to unfold. The quality of the light is reminiscent of Edward Hopper. Bravo to Ortiz for a compelling article and a haunting photograph. JULIE FRIEDGEN Burbank

I read the "Indianapolis 500 Daily Report" by Shav Glick in which Mario Andretti discusses Andy Granatelli's kissing him at the end of the race. "If you look at the picture real close, you can see that he is whispering something in my ear, not kissing me (after the 1969 race)," Andretti says. Although I was not as close to Granatelli as was Andretti when I was photographing the event, I beg to differ. It's obvious that Andretti's memory has faded, unlike the image captured in a black-and-white negative so many years ago. I thought you would enjoy the photo.

After I finished reading the delightful and evocative essay on the literary haunts of New Orleans ("New Orleans, They Wrote," Sept. 24), I came to several conclusions: One, I want to return to New Orleans for another visit. Two, I want to reread some of the writers in the article. And three, I want the Los Angeles Times to send Sergio Ortiz to more cities! JOHN THOM Los Angeles I was sorry to see that Sergio Ortiz did not include a reference to another well-known New Orleans author, Frances Parkinson Keyes, who wrote 51 books, among them "Dinner at Antoine's" and "The Chess Players."

I read with great enthusiasm Sergio Ortiz's article, "New Orleans, They Wrote" (Sept. 24), particularly a five-paragraph reference to F. Scott Fitzgerald. As both a writer of New Orleans and ardent scholar of Fitzgerald, I thought that in Ortiz I had somehow run across an undiscovered gem of "Fitzgeraldia." However, upon returning to my sources, I find no mention of any stint in New Orleans "while revising the galleys of his first novel 'This Side of Paradise.' " The entire affair is placed by all sources (including Fitzgerald's own essay "Early Success")

An irrigation worker who fell into a manure lagoon after being overcome by methane fumes was hospitalized and released. Sergio Ortiz was installing a canal gate Tuesday when he fell 12 feet into the sludge in this town west of Merced. He was airlifted to Los Banos Memorial Hospital. The Merced County Sheriff's Department was investigating.

I have been remiss in not responding to Sergio Ortiz's wonderful article on Seville, Spain ("Stirring the Senses in Seville," Oct. 28). Your readers should know that train travel between Seville and Madrid is not always a question of an eight-hour trip versus a one-hour flight; there is a wonderful 2 1/2-hour rail trip on the high-speed (286 mph) AVE train.

Mexico City police said they have detained five suspects in the kidnapping and killing of a 14-year-old boy, a crime that prompted protests across the nation. Officials said kidnappers dressed as police and set up a fake checkpoint on a busy street to snare victim Fernando Marti, revealing the complexity and sophistication of Mexico's organized crime gangs. City prosecutor Miguel Mancera said the suspected ringleader, Sergio Ortiz, posed as a well-heeled society type to move among the wealthy and collect information on potential victims.

The Merced County district attorney's office announced it will not prosecute the employers of a Patterson man who died after he was overcome by fumes from a manure pit. There's not enough evidence to win a conviction, and a similar case recently resulted in the acquittal of the employer, said Dist. Atty. Gordon Spencer. Sergio Ortiz died Aug. 27, 2002, while he was trying to install a gate inside a dairy pipe used to carry manure away from a barn.
