Thank you for Jerry Hulse's tribute to Delaplane. It meant a great deal to me--being an old San Franciscan. The art of traveling is just that--an art. And being able to come back with a good story is a true blessing. Delaplane will be sorely missed. JANE POWELL San Diego

Regarding the San Diego Convention Center, that name is appropriate and should remain as such. As for Martin Luther King Jr., there are many other things that could be named after him. My favorite would be Presidents Way in Balboa Park. That would be a tribute equal to his accomplishment. PAUL HERRMANN San Diego

A self-proclaimed "super fan" of Huell Howser, the beloved host of "California's Gold" who died Jan. 6, is staging a grass-roots effort to put together a tribute book that will honor the folksy public television host. Robert DaGasta, a buyer and seller of pop culture memorabilia, has been traveling around the city visiting numerous locales that Howser featured in his program to solicit "tribute pages" that would feature photos and remembrances of Howser. The pages, he said, give locals a chance to say farewell to Howser in a personal way. "We love Huell, and we really wanted to do something to honor him," DaGasta said.

When news of Cory Monteith's death in July sent shockwaves through "Glee's" fan base, many wondered how the series would pay tribute to one of its most beloved characters. But more importantly would the show, which has long handled heavy-duty story lines about sexuality, gender, race, disability, body image and countless other meaty topics high schoolers confront, address the star's death from a heroin and alcohol overdose? Those answers came on Thursday, three episodes into the new season, with an hour-long tribute to Monteith's Finn Hudson.

Re "In Desert Solitude, Faithful Pay Tribute to the Abbey Myth" by Bob Sipchen, May 22: Not long ago, Edward Abbey, the great naturalist, died. He was my hero. I made a film of his book, "The Brave Cowboy," which was released under the title, "Lonely Are the Brave." My company, Bryna, produced it, and I played Edward Abbey. It is my favorite movie. I was proud that Abbey liked it. In a tribute to Abbey, your writer wrote: "He (Abbey) was pleased with the film, 'Lonely Are the Brave,' in which Gregory Peck played the lead."

I have read many articles saying things will never be the same after the incidents of Sept. 11; I hope this is true. I have seen grown men not afraid to cry and show their emotions. I have seen children disgusted by violence; the same violence that dominated their video games, movies and TV shows. I have seen governments with dramatic differences in political ideology unite against evil. I see strangers walking down the street saying hello. I see people standing up when the national anthem is played.
