Regarding "The ABCs of 'X,' " Calendar's cover stories on Malcolm X and the making of the new Spike Lee film (Nov. 15): As a 44-year-old mostly white guy, I was only mildly interested in how Spike Lee would bring the story of Malcolm X to the screen. As a young man I lived as a witness to most of Malcolm X's adult life, and sensed very little relevance to draw from. The Nov. 15 Calendar changed my view of things. The puffball reverence shown to Robert Duvall in "From All-American to All Stalin" contrasted remarkably with the interview "Spike Lee, Speaking to the Point."
