Seen any good comedies about Alzheimer's disease lately? "One of the things you realize in the course of this kind of degenerative (process) is that either you develop a sense of humor and a sense of patience--or you don't cope," said Steven Kent, director of Jo Carson's "Daytrips" (at the Los Angeles Theatre Center). The play focuses on three generations of a contemporary Tennessee family: grandmother, mother and daughter (whose character doubles as the narrator).

Steven Kent, who has spent 20 years homeless on the streets of Long Beach, arrived Saturday in Ohio to be reunited with his sister and collect an inheritance. "It is nice seeing her again. . . . I missed her," Kent said. "We talked about old times and how she has been fixing up the place." Bonnie White picked Kent up Saturday morning at a Mansfield bus station and drove him to their childhood home, where she still lives in this small town about 60 miles northwest of Columbus.

Carolyn Wente, Wente Vineyards "I had a brand-new wine--a 1996 Steven Kent Cabernet Sauvignon blend. It's a Livermore Valley wine. I had it in a blind tasting of some various big hitters in the California Cabernet world. It was totally awesome. It was very supple and well-balanced with nice, big tannins in balance--an elegant wine. It stood out among the rest, which were more tannic and muscular and chewy. I served it on New Year's Eve with a standing rib roast."

Re "Better Teachers, but Still Too Few," April 12 Good teachers make a difference, but other key factors determine the academic success of students -- class size, curriculum restrictions, adequate resources, school and community culture, administrative leadership and, most important, parental involvement. To put all the blame for poor achievement on the shoulders of teachers is an easy scapegoat. As a new teacher, I find the current system for teacher development, a product of No Child Left Behind, working against me. After two years of night school, interns are expected to survive for several months without a paycheck while doing their student teaching.

Hilton Hotels Corp. said Tuesday that its fourth-quarter profit jumped 62% as increased demand allowed it to charge higher room rates. The nation's third-largest hotel company, which is based in Beverly Hills, said it earned $105 million, or 26 cents a share, for the quarter ended Dec. 31, up from $65 million, or 16 cents, a year earlier. After adjusting for one-time gains and charges, Hilton earnings would have been 22 cents a share.

Although dance at the 1993 Los Angeles Festival is demeaned by smorgasbord programming formats, artist-curator Mehmet Sander managed to unify his assigned sampler-evening through the sheer intensity of his choices. Despite the high heat and problematic sight lines in the smaller Vision Complex Theatre on Friday, Sander's four-part "Gravity in Transition" provided an exciting showcase for performers of vision and commitment.
