Re "District's Bathroom Brouhaha," June 18: I believe it comes down to priorities: classroom books for the students or $100,000 for private bathrooms; smaller classrooms or $100,000 bathrooms; raises for the teachers or $100,000 bathrooms; supplies for the schools or $100,000 bathrooms; fine arts and sports in the schools or $100,000 bathrooms. Is it that difficult to decide what's right for the children in the public schools? The L.A. school board members need a place to escape the throng of questions thrown at them in the hallways--I'm so sorry they are so inconvenienced.

Debra Messing, who stars on "Smash" as Broadway lyricist Julia Houston, has listed her showstopper in Bel-Air for $11.995 million. The traditional-style house, designed by architect Paul R.

Perhaps hoping to hit a home run of a different sort, former baseball outfielder Barry Bonds has put his Italian-inspired estate in Beverly Park up for sale at $25 million. Designed to function both as a place to host large-scale events and as a family home, the 17,100-square-foot villa sits beside a circular motor court centered on a multi-tiered fountain. The 1.85 acres of grounds include an outdoor kitchen, a swimming pool with a cabana, a 2,100-square-foot sports court, an olive grove, a lawn and a rose garden.

Behind the walls of this gated Bel-Air estate lies a palatial compound fit for royalty. Its lavish entertainment space includes an outdoor pavilion with a kitchen between the tennis courts and swimming pool. The property was bought in 1989 by Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, now the king of Saudi Arabia, who tore down the existing structure and built a French mansion with nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, two half-bathrooms and a two-story guesthouse. A lot on the west side of the compound, large enough to accommodate a third house, completes the 2.38 acres of grounds.
