As much as Tim Rutten might wish, homicidal attacks cannot be legislated out of existence. He can, however, own a gun and protect himself and his family. Who knows, some day he might even stop a madman from killing somebody. Imagine if just one patron of Luby's cafeteria in Killeen, Tex., was armed and shot back. God knows how many lives would have been saved. ROBERT W. BURKE Laguna Niguel

If there was a landmark art event for 1993, the disastrous installment last March of New York's Whitney Biennial was it. The show rivaled the train wreck sequence in "The Fugitive." Hating the Whitney Biennial is, of course, a countrywide biennial sport. The show always begs for critical slams, since virtually any "national survey of recent artistic trends" inevitably fails to celebrate the virtues of this, that or the other pet artist, idea or peeve cherished by the viewer.

In Irvine, anybody who fires up a leaf blower on a Sunday is violating city law. While the use of leaf blowers is allowed Monday through Saturday until 5 p.m., the city has established rigorous rules of operation. All leaf blowers used in the city must first be tested and approved by city officials and must bear a city approval label. Anyone who wants to use an approved leaf blower must complete a city training session. The operator must take the course every two years.
