Enjoyed Lawrence Chua's review of "The Queen's Throat." Not the leanest prose I've read, though. I once heard Arthur Ferrante and Louis Teicher do Debussy's "Clair de Lune" on two nine-foot grands: two men chasing a butterfly with sledge hammers. FRED SCIFERS DOWNEY

A man trying to bench-press 295 pounds died after dropping the barbell on his throat, authorities said Monday. Richard Craig English, a 28-year-old house painter from Vancouver, died Friday at a hospital in this British Columbian city. He was working out alone at a health club and had previously refused offers to use "spotters" to monitor his lifting, Sgt. Doug Bond said. When a club staff member discovered English, "the barbell was across his throat and he was blue," Bond said Monday.

We had a house guest last week, a feisty 83-year-old who drives about the country every year visiting old friends and dispensing wisdom.

He has decided--and he's probably right--that if you achieve 83, it is no longer necessary to carefully balance opinion in the interest of evenhandedness. He knows what he knows, and he believes what he believes.

Sometimes, late at night, her faith run ragged from trying to raise a voice from the dead, Kim Mallory sneaks away to listen to her dream. She clicks her son's old laptop to YouTube. She clicks to an old video of her son giving an interview. He is Stafon Johnson, a USC running back, speaking to a television reporter after scoring the first two touchdowns of his career. "He's stuttering, he's searching for the right words," she says. "He sounds just beautiful."
