We enjoyed with special interest Jane Engle's article "We Just Can't Seem to Break Up With Our Flier Programs," [Travel Insider, Feb. 18]. At the recent L.A.

The slide show is a misunderstood creature. It has a lousy reputation and usually conjures up memories of darkened rooms and an endless array of unedited slides from the neighbor's trip to Mexico. And then there is ophthalmologist Gunnar E. Christiansen of Corona del Mar, whose slide shows are the exception. His travelogues have attracted thousands of people. His photographic exploits from Denmark to Portugal to France to Scotland have added something extra to the lives of senior citizens.
