Today we are dealing with growlers, a guy called Gomer, creeping humor and theories of ice-cream eating.All this came in the mail, in the form of handwritten communications. In a time when stacks of computer-generated mail descend upon anybody with a mail box, it is a pleasure to spot an envelope that has been addressed by a person, not a computer printer.Inside such envelopes are usually honest messages, artfully stated.I think it is called letter writing. My mother keeps telling me I should try it sometime.

MY NEW COMPUTER has eaten the Bach. Nerds have been telling me for years something bad would happen, but I hadn't expected the eating of Bach. I'd expected the bad something to be like an old Moscow show trial. I would have to tell the world I was obsolete, out of touch with the new slang, the new clothes, the new totality of the total newness, kaput. And why? Because I had sneered at the cyberfuture instead of accepting it with joy.It was an egoist's fantasy. In Moscow trials, people who had committed the crime of being annoyances to Stalin always had to tell the world about it before being shot.

WITH the Christmas season near, the television networks will begin bombarding us with holiday programs that, after being seen 10 times, begin to lose their appeal. Perhaps a new and different production of an old favorite will cure our rerun blahs. The Musical Artists Theater will present a new musical production of the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol weekends Dec. 7-16 in Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts, 194 Hammonds Lane. Lyricist Michael Hulett said the production adheres to the original story - with all dialogue coming straight from Dickens' pen. The sets and costumes strive to create a vivid picture of Victorian England in the 1840s.

CUMBERLAND - Earnest and unassuming, Paul Wagner seems a postman from a Frank Capra movie. He says hello by name to the customers along his hilly Western Maryland mail route, pets their dogs (despite having been bitten a dozen times), brings their kids chocolate. And, this past summer, without being asked, he donated a kidney to a retired sixth-grade teacher on the route, giving new meaning to the Postal Service slogan, "We deliver for you." These are challenging times for the postal agency, which likely will need a multibillion-dollar bailout to help it fend off anthrax attacks and recover from the terrorism-related mail decline.

At the close of the "Cosby" television show on Jan. 20, there appeared a still photograph of a man who was familiar onlyvaguely -- if familiar at all -- to most viewers. These words accompanied the picture: "In memory of Sheldon Leonard. My last father."Sheldon Leonard died Jan. 10 at age 89. He was a major player in producing entertainment programs for television in the early years of the medium. His career is a reminder that when great social forces are clashing in the United States, heroes can come from anywhere and epic victories can be won in unexpected places.
