The "Sourcebook" directory issue (April 16) was superb. The idea of creating phone number lists for airlines, cruise lines, hotels, state tourism boards, etc. is excellent. My wife and I plan to keep the section for future reference. JAIRO J. ANGULO Los Angeles

THE Travel section is one of my favorite parts of the Sunday paper, and this last weekend [Sourcebook, 2007] was the best I can remember in a long, long time -- lots of variety and helpful information. Yes, I know it was because of the Travel & Adventure Show coming up. But there are many of us who would love to see such content on a regular basis. I actually had to finish it in two sittings, there was so much to read. Thank you for a great job well done. BARBARA WALKER Encinitas MY Travel section looked like Swiss cheese because I clipped something on almost every page for future reference.

REGARDING "A Careful Traveler Becomes a Bit Warier" [Travel section Sourcebook, Jan. 22] and subsequent letters on the pickpockets: I have traveled extensively in Europe but met only one. In September 2002 in Amsterdam, I was ill with the flu and alone on a trolley at the end of the line. I was the last person off except for the thief behind me. I felt his hand on my wallet in my pocket. I grabbed his hand; he sprang back. I had him cornered at the back of the trolley, and he was much smaller than I and frightened.

We plan to keep the wonderful sourcebook issue (Feb. 2) as a reference. But my wife and I were disappointed that it did not contain information on bicycling. We are in our 70s and have taken at least one weeklong bicycle trip every year since 1973. It's not difficult, and it's a rewarding experience. We can exit LAX faster on our bicycles than we can in our car. Please add biking information to your next sourcebook. Ralph Boethling Redondo Beach

After almost 36 years of subscribing to The Times, you finally produced an entire section ("Our Annual Sourcebook for Travelers," April 18) that was well written, timely, authoritative, complete and useful. I only wish it were produced on other than newsprint, for preservation. R. G. MARCO Huntington Beach

The article "How to Get a Passport" (May 12) stated that an adult passport is $60 and a passport for children younger than 16 is $40. These fees include a $15 execution fee, which is payable to the facility that accepts the application. If your application is accepted at a courthouse or post office the $15 is payable to that agency. The fee to Passport Services is then $45 for an adult and $25 for children younger than 16. A separate check or money order would be needed for the execution fees.

December 11, 2005 | Kristina Lindgren, Kristina Lindgren is an assistant editor of Book Review.
NEED extra challenge in your golf game? For those who have mastered the sport's intricacies and hunger for more, there is the Awesome Eight golf society, created along the lines of mountaineering's Seven Summits challenge. But instead of scaling the highest peaks on each of seven continents, the goal is to play in the "harshest conditions the planet can throw at you," writes Duncan Lennard in his handsomely photographed book "Extreme Golf."

October 27, 2002 | Paul Krassner, Paul Krassner is the author of "Murder at the Conspiracy Convention and Other American Absurdities." He is working on a novel inspired by his association with Lenny Bruce.
I originally met Lenny Bruce in 1959 at the Hotel America in New York. He was scheduled to perform at a midnight show at Town Hall. I had already published an interview with him in The Realist that was conducted by mail, and now I handed him the succeeding issue, which featured an interview with psychologist Albert Ellis, including a discussion of the semantics of profanity. The problem words were spelled out rather than using asterisks or dashes, as was the practice in mainstream media.
