On the evening of July 10, rising art star Jeremy Blake returned to his New York apartment, a converted rectory at St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery that he shared with his girlfriend, Theresa Duncan. The couple, extremely devoted and still very much in love after 12 years, had eaten a late lunch together, and Blake invited the church's assistant pastor over for a drink.

THERESA DUNCAN worked hard to get out of Lapeer, Mich., where she was born in 1966, and where, last month, she was buried. On her blog, the Wit of the Staircase, the writer and filmmaker compared Lapeer to the small Texas town in Peter Bogdanovich's "The Last Picture Show." "You would think it was 1951," she wrote, adding that her birthplace was "similarly subject to incredible boredom punctured by baroque social intrigue."

"THEY were brilliant, complex people," says Katie Brennan of Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake ["Why'd They Do It?" by Chris Lee, July 25]. It's now apparent that these two lost souls were too "complex" for their own good. This sad story is just another example of the old saying regarding money and happiness. For all their complexity, talent, money and social standing in the art community, Blake and Duncan had some serious psychological problems.

RE "Why'd They Do It?" by Chris Lee, July 25, and "In a Cocoon of Their Making," by Chris Lee, Aug. 3: The years that I spent working with Jeremy Blake, through my gallery, Works on Paper Inc., in Los Angeles, were productive and amazingly exciting. It was an experience that continues to positively influence an approach to my own curatorial practice. His video work, often referencing formal conventions of painting, was progressive and deeply intelligent.

Artist Jeremy Blake is missing, according to New York City investigators, and he apparently drowned himself Tuesday night, said Lance Kinz, co-owner of the Manhattan art gallery that represents Blake. Police said a man "tentatively identified" as Blake was seen stripping to his shorts and disappearing into the surf at Rockaway Beach in Queens, N.Y., where no body had been found by Friday. Kinz said Blake's friends are convinced it was him because his wallet and clothes were found in the sand.

If you haven't seen CD-ROM director Theresa Duncan's earlier work, you'll think that her new release, "Smartypants," is far and away the best disk ever for young girls. It is, except for her earlier CD-ROM "Chop Suey," which is even better. Either one would make a great gift for girls in the 7 to 12 age group, and no doubt a lot of computer-savvy boys would like them too.

A Muslim charity and five of its former leaders were convicted Monday of funneling millions of dollars to the Palestinian militant group Hamas -- a long-sought victory in the government's fight against terrorism funding. U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis announced the guilty verdicts on all 108 counts on the eighth day of deliberations in the retrial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, once the nation's largest Muslim charity.
