. . . An ABC sports announcer praised basketball star Michael Jordan last weekend for being "a credit to his society." We wonder how often he ventures such a comment about a white player. . . . What a coincidence! Donna Dixon and hubby Dan Aykroyd are making another movie together--Orion's "Couch Trip." A Dixon rep said her client was signed to the project before Dan: "They came to Donna first. They didn't even call Dan's agent until after they'd contacted hers."

It goes about a zillion miles an hour, looks tougher than jailhouse steak and has explosive bolts in the doors, but before getting to the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing, if I may, a nod to the old (1955-1957) Gullwing. Some years ago I drove a Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing in the Mille Miglia, the 1,000-mile road rally around the heart of Italy, and left the tattered bits of my blown mind all over the ceiling. By that time I had driven a fair number of vintage sports cars -- Alfas, Aston Martins, Jaguars, Ferraris -- and found most of them to be poor to downright horrible and spectacularly dangerous.

It's a shame that such a prestigious newspaper should suffer the embarrassment of Brian Lowry, a columnist who uses the widely read Calendar section to air his petty, acrimonious attacks on someone who is beloved by the public at large ("The Trouble With Synergy: A Media Family Feud," Aug. 1).

Resolutions of an irresolute party-goer: 1. I will not use the word glitzy more than once a week. 2. I will make sure that this year I cover the March of Dimes Gourmet Gala, any luncheon given by Judy Henning, Contessa Cohn's Valentine Party, the Amanda Foundation Fashion Show, the Robinson Garden's August Moon Party, and (if I get invited this time) any wedding of Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Henry Rogers is a man of his word. When the public relations pioneer was honored Wednesday by the Music Center at a black-tie dinner, he promised the 350 guests gathered in the Beverly Hills Grand Ballroom that the evening would end by 9:30. This would be no easy promise to fulfill. There was a cocktail party to move through, a three-course dinner to consume, speeches, toasts, musical tributes and, for Rogers, 350 hands to shake as he moved about the room.

Bruce Willis may be off the "Hook" cast list, but he isn't off the hook with Hollywood's stage craft unions. Willis recently visited the Columbia Studios set of "Hook," Steven Spielberg's extravagant version of the "Peter Pan" story.

How do you define glamour in 1991? Madeleine Gallay, owner, Madeleine Gallay boutique on Sunset Boulevard: "Glamour is a car that doesn't break down. It's the new chic. I've been to the auto mechanic twice this week. I have a '71 Mercedes. I hate my car wildly. It's much more glamorous to be selfish and just have to take care of yourself. Oh--but I'm a retailer. I should say that Manolo Blahnik shoes are glamorous."
