Down the hall and around the corner from "The Art of Rice" is a related installation titled "From the Verandah: Art, Buddhism, Presence." It's not a traditional exhibition at UCLA's Fowler Museum, but neither is a show about rice (and the relationship between farming and art). Put bluntly, "From the Verandah" is an excessively reverential sideshow in which art takes a back seat to the "atmosphere" around it.

On Saturday, a 60-year-old film had the grand old Alex Theatre in Glendale packed for two shows. Of course! "Mildred Pierce" is the Glendale movie. You probably know the story: Plucky Glendale gal with great legs throws her husband out, gets a job as a waitress, then starts a restaurant of her own and builds it into a wildly successful chain. And then, because "Mildred Pierce" is a classic tear-jerker, her highflying world comes crashing down in a colossal ruin!

Regarding "Cruising for Bargains," by Si Liberman [Aug. 16]: It is true that cruise lines are offering some good bargains. However, in many cases the single traveler is not able to take advantage of these advertised bargains because of the penalty cruise lines impose on single cruisers. My travel agent tried to book a March 8, 2010, itinerary on the Holland America Rotterdam that was promoted to Mariner Society members at $6,999 per person for a Verandah Suite. The pricing proposal from Holland America for my booking was $14,800.

One would disappear every few weeks -- a boy on his way to buy juice, a teenage girl coming home from a day of housecleaning. Police said Saturday that a businessman and his servant had confessed to raping and killing at least 15 children and women in New Delhi's prosperous Noida suburb in the last two years, dumping their dismembered bodies in drains where remains recently were found. The case highlights a familiar complaint in India, where many say police often ignore the poor.

Art stardom wasn't what the founder of Buddhism had in mind 2,500 years ago when he left his family, gave up his worldly riches and set off on a quest for spiritual enlightenment. But that's exactly what he has achieved this fall in California art museums. Ten Buddhist art shows are already on view or opening soon and more are on the way, along with related programs. Like Buddhism itself, the exhibitions cover a lot of history and geography. They also take different tacks.

"There is no time I can remember when I was not fascinated by words 'going together,' " Noel Coward wrote in the introduction to his collected song lyrics. The results of that fixation fill the ensuing 400-plus pages with cascades of crisp, witty rhymes. These were affixed to melodies that fizz like Champagne cocktails, mixing the sound of the British music hall with operetta and perhaps a dash of the art song.
