As the City Council moved to head off the Eddie Rose controversy Tuesday night by restricting its own use of city stationery, Rose supporters struck back by handing a recall notice to Mayor Mark Goodman. The council unanimously passed a set of restrictions that all use of city stationery be pre-approved by City Manager Tim Casey or City Atty. Terry Dixon. The same is true for use of fax machines and copiers.

If you can stop texting, tweeting and typing long enough, you may notice that some stylish people are taking communication into their own hands. Whether it's a $3.50 ballpoint disguised as a tube of lipstick at Bookmarc, Marc Jacobs' (relatively) new Melrose store, or a $275 platinum-plated pencil sharpener from Graf von Faber-Castell, writing instruments, journals and stationery have emerged as an essential accessory for artistic self-expression. And the timing couldn't be better, since many of us must now face our list of holiday thank-you notes.

Jack Miles brought up some interesting points in "Letters and the Law" (Dec.8). Perhaps J.D. Salinger (and those of us who write personal letters with wild abandon) should write them on stationery that has been specially watermarked "Not for Publication." TRINI MARQUEZ, SKY FOREST

One of the things that makes our country great is that an ex-dishwasher can become a celebrated chef at Michael McCarty's popular Westside eaterie, Michael's. Unfortunately, that was not Chef Martin Garcia of Michael's in the photograph that accompanied Ruth Reichl's article Nov. 17, but rather the restaurant's janitor (or Maintenance Director, if you will), Michael Echeveria. Let's give credit where credit is due. AN INFORMED L.A. FOODIE (Who types on Michael's stationery.

[This post has been corrected. See note at bottom for details.] When Banana Republic was looking for someone to collaborate on a summer collection inspired by Palm Springs, Trina Turk was the one to call.

My wife let me go to India on a cultural exchange program on one condition: Bring back plenty of presents. True to my word, I arrived home in California after a month in Delhi feeling like Santa — my giant duffel bag full of sparkly bangle bracelets and bindis, colorful bags, patchwork quilts, woven shirts, flowing skirts, ethnic shoes, original artwork, funky pillow covers, vibrant tablecloths, handmade stationery and much more. Best of all, these one-of-a-kind treasures cost less than $400.

A handwritten note is the most personal way to say "thank you" during the holidays, whether it's for a cashmere scarf or a Sunday night dinner. "Writing thank-you notes is an important skill, one that you should teach your children even before they can write," says Jacqueline Whitmore, a Palm Beach, Fla.-based author and the founder of www.etiquetteexpert.com. "I can't tell you how many e-mails I get from grandparents who are upset with their grandchildren, or with their children for not teaching their grandchildren to write thank-you notes.

Logos for state agencies may come and go with the stamp of a printing press, and most people hardly notice. But the employees of those agencies sometimes grow fond of the emblems. When the state printer told the California Coastal Commission it could not use the 1 3/8-inch-tall blue wave at the bottom of its stationery, some members of the embattled agency were dismayed.

I have 250 friends on Facebook. I'm not bragging (that's nothing compared to most people), but I'm a bit baffled by how I can have so many "friends" without ever having received a handwritten letter from even one of them. I faithfully send thank you, sympathy and even "Hey, how are you?" notes to people I value. And the mailman's not delivering much in return. Maybe Facebook has made us too apathetic to remember what being real friends is like.
