Every time I hear a great new reader, it's like getting another friend. Gene Engene (pronounced EN-gun-ee) is my most recent acquaintance. Engene, a professor of drama at Eastern Washington University, has a compelling, Now-Hear-This voice, but he still manages to sound friendly. He's serious, yet expressive and conversational, the Walter Cronkite of narrators. He gives a dramatic, crisp delivery without being too tense or tight. A master of the pause, he creates suspense by drawing out some of the words, as in: aaaaaand, theeeeen, the man bit the dog. Engene reads for Books in Motion, a Spokane, Wash.

OK . . . it's not exactly a news flash that we should be moderating our intake of fatty cured meats (and red meats, too, which also got a disapproving glance from the WHO)

Editor's note: This week, we respond to reader letters: Q: I'm convinced you either make this [all] up or you pick the most obnoxious, dumb questions. Top or bottom in anal sex? Really? We've fallen so far down the drain it's embarrassing. Can't you save that [stuff] for Penthouse or something? It's really disgusting for a family paper . . . Sorry, but I think you're both slobs. Steve: Not dealing with sex is a bad idea. Communication improves all facets of life. Mia: Yo, potty mouth.
