An "obsessive fan" charged in the slaying of actress Rebecca Schaeffer had hired a private detective to track down her address a month before allegedly shooting her to death outside her apartment, Los Angeles police said today. The suspect, Robert John Bardo, 19, of Tucson, contacted the Anthony Agency, a private investigative company in his hometown, to say "he was writing to (Schaeffer) and wanted to send her a present," said William Johnson, an employee of the agency.

Mark Anthony, a business agent and personal manager for comedian Bob Hope for 50 years, died Friday in his Toluca Lake office. He was believed to be 80. Anthony apparently died of a heart attack, according to Ward Grant, a spokesman for the 94-year-old Hope. Grant said Hope had been told of the death and was saddened. The agent had worked for Hope since 1948, arranging personal appearances and real estate transactions.

I am appalled that just anyone can walk into a detective agency and request an address. Rebecca Schaeffer's address was unlisted, for obvious reasons, yet the Anthony Detective Agency felt that it was OK to give this man, obviously mentally ill, her address so he could kill her. Schaeffer would probably still be alive today if the agency had denied Bardo's request. What right does any detective agency have to give out someone's address, especially when it is unlisted?

Uh-uh, no, no casual sex. That's something baby, you just better forget. Uh-uh, no, no respectfully. Just sleeping around don't interest me. --From Carrie McDowell's hit "Casual Sex" Sex sells records--from such blatant megahits as Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" and Prince's "Do Me Baby" all the way through to George Michael's current and explicit "I Want Your Sex." Still, the pop world is not immune to the dangers of casual sex in an age of AIDS and escalating teen-age pregnancies.
