The last time I wrote about my mail in this space, it was in the form of a letter to an anonymous letter writer. Alas, it was the one time in my four years as editor of the magazine that the printer dropped my signature from Editor's Note. Purely an accident (although an accident that got the person at the plant responsible fired, I was horrified to find out later). The Editor's Note that appeared the following week was, you may well imagine, a study in groveling apology.But, undaunted, here I go again.

Editor's note: Coming Saturday, The Sun introduces a new home design section. This is the centerpiece of the first print edition. There's a suspicious dearth of chrome, not a lick of black leather and the place is utterly without a bar. Not one wall — and there are quite a few — is holding up, Atlas-style, an intimidating fortress of electronic equipment. Bob Bowman's new home, at least on paper, is a bachelor pad. But the truth is, the swim coach famous for leading Michael Phelps to Olympic gold has worked hard to make the house he built on 37 acres off a winding Monkton road feel warm, livable and very, very real.

THERE'S NO Triple Crown candidate in the Preakness field this year; he's been retired due to an injury following the Kentucky Derby. The experts' other clear favorite won't run because a cracked hoof isn't healing quickly. But regardless of the star-quality of the horses, this is still the Preakness, the preeminent event on Maryland's racing calendar and one of the premier thoroughbred races in the nation.It is a wide-open contest, which should please those looking for a good payoff from this afternoon's race at Pimlico.

The New York Times published an editor's note in yesterday's editions, as well as an online critique, detailing problems with reporting standards in several articles the newspaper published between October 2001 and June 2003, dealing with the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The Sun published four of the articles -- on Nov. 8, 2001, Sept. 8, 2002, April 23, 2003, and May 21, 2003 -- that we received through the New York Times News Service. The Times noted various flaws, including a failure to independently verify one article, to follow up on the veracity of a source in another, and in a third to be more cautious with its conclusions.

LONGTIME FRIENDSEditor: Since reading the article on "The Best of Friends" [March 31] I thought you might be interested in this friendship of 61 years. We met in 1930 -- have never had a cross word -- and are still staunch friends.Fay RaymondBaltimore Editor: The article "Big Trouble on Campus" [on Political Correctness, May 12 issue] brought me a first sign of relief.. . . Closer to home, let me recall an episode in the Howard County school system not more than a year or two ago.A student had designed a calendar intended to show many cultures together as one unified group.

TOO MANY ADSEditor: I have subscribed to The Sun for 43 years, (morning, evening and Sunday) and have seen the magazine section decline in both quantity (pages) and quality. It has become an advertising section with a few items thrown in. The only items I find interesting are "Back Tracks" and the news notes from previous decades and centuries. I have noticed that "Back Tracks" has been omitted more and more. I have been on the fence about canceling my subscription because of other faults I have noticed in the overall (Sun Paper Publication)

* Editor's note: Madcap adventures ensue when wild things escape for a night on the town. Last night at the zoo there was nothing to do... No tiger had growled, no lion had roared. The monkeys and zebras were idle and bored. "If we just had a plan, we could sneak out of the zoo. On a night like tonight, there's a lot we could do!" It was an old grizzly who whispered the dare, and it sounded just great to the white polar bear. "Squawk!" screeched a toucan with a long beak. "Thrills and excitement are the things that we seek!

Lots of laughsEditor: Every Sunday I eagerly anticipate my double dose of laughter that I find in your feature columns written by Dave Barry and Mike Klingaman. Their insight of people and dirt (no digging required) makes me howl with laughter as I envision the stated hilarious circumstance. I sincerely hope that you realize the rest of the magazine is fun to examine but it is these well-written columns that keep my soul uplifted.Suzanne P.
