It was with pleasure that I saw the picture of the band playing in front of a restaurant in Havana [“Terms of Engagement,” winter]. I play saxophone and actually performed with that band for a month in 2002. The bar is called El Patio. We played 6 hours a day Wednesday through Sunday and 12 hours on Tuesday. Great picture that brought back great memories.

As a retired dentist, I’m wondering why there is a dental extraction forceps in the instrument tray photo beside the section on transplanting a liver [“How Does It Feel?” winter]. Surely that’s not part of the armamentarium used in the procedure, is it?
