A letter from Wilfred Couzin (Sept. 6) erroneously identified me as a current spokesman for Moral Majority. I have not held that position for more than three years and, in fact, have written several columns critiquing it specifically and some TV evangelists in general. CAL THOMAS Washington, D.C.

SAN FRANCISCO - - A spokesman for the family of a San Francisco woman whose body was found 17 days after she disappeared from her hospital bed said Thursday that investigators have found no evidence of foul play in her death. David Perry, the family spokesman, said a source close to the investigation told him there was no sign that Lynne Spalding , 57, had been a victim of a crime. Spalding was admitted to San Francisco General Hospital on Sept. 19 with a urinary tract infection and disappeared from her room two days later. A hospital worker discovered her body Tuesday morning in an exterior stairwell used as a fire escape.

The spokesman for the nightclub where Michael Vick held his birthday bash says the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback left in a car minutes before a shooting outside, contradicting the timeline of Vick's attorney. Larry Woodward told the Associated Press on Tuesday that Vick left the establishment at least 10 minutes, and perhaps as many as 20 minutes, before the shooting. Allen Fabijan, spokesman for Guadalajara Mexican restaurant and nightclub in Virginia Beach, Va., said Wednesday that time-stamped footage from a surveillance camera outside the entrance of the club shows a car with Vick inside leaving at 2:07 a.m. Friday -- about four minutes before the shooting a block away.

Robert Gibbs, the media face of the Obama presidency, will leave his post as White House spokesman and will boost the president's reelection drive from outside the West Wing. The departure of Gibbs as the chief spokesman has been rumored for weeks, but it was unclear whether he would stay in another job within the administration or whether he would leave the White House to work for Obama from outside. Gibbs confirmed this morning that he will leave sometime in early February, after the president delivers his State of the Union speech to the new Congress.
