Miranda Kerr isn't getting her Victoria's Secret Angel wings clipped any time soon, despite reports circulating Wednesday. Kerr's $1-million, three-year contract with the lingerie company reportedly "was not renewed" because of her "difficult reputation" and because she "wasn't a big seller," Us Weekly said . However, Victoria's Secret officials deflated those rumors. And we're still scratching our halos over what actually comprises said "difficult reputation"...

We enjoyed Carl Duncan's article "Victoria's Secrets" (May 28). As frequent visitors to Vancouver and Victoria, we would like to add a few items: It is easy and inexpensive to take a bus from Vancouver via the ferry to downtown Victoria. The Victoria bus station is beside the Empress Hotel. There are many hotels in this area, from budget to deluxe. We like the Crystal Court Motel, across the street from the bus station. It was built in the 1940s and has full kitchens. A less expensive way to go to Butchart Gardens is to take the Victoria city bus, which stops behind the Empress and at the garden's ticket booth.
