RYAN SEACREST brought it up at the beginning. Chris Richardson alluded to it. Even Simon Cowell mentioned it (after what he would later say was a poorly timed eye roll). But in all the fleeting but heartfelt references Tuesday night on "American Idol" to the shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech, nobody had the wherewithal to use the most powerful tool of heart-to-heart communication at their disposal, the one that the whole enterprise ostensibly is about: music.

Re "Family-Therapy Participants Try to Shed Childhood Anguish" (July 14): I would like to offer another viewpoint concerning John Bradshaw and the workshops he gives.

Some Mission Viejo parents appear to be lacking both a sense of humor and trust in their children at Mission Viejo High School. Surely a little devilishness on the part of young people raised in Christian homes is not going to condemn them to hell. It's the young people's school so let them choose how to present it.

How many adjectives do we really need, I wonder? "Jutting jaw muscles and soulful blue eyes," "unkempt goatee . . . calm . . . his arm drapes easily over the back of the sofa," "lean, sinuous frame, high cheekbones and dark elegance" and my personal favorite, "While their appeal to teen-age girls would go without question to anyone who isn't blind.

Vincent Cassel finally got his Robert De Niro moment in the powerful two-part French gangster epic "Mesrine: Killer Instinct" and "Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1. " "I grew up watching 'Raging Bull,'" says the 43-year-old actor, referring to the 1980 film for which De Niro won the Oscar for packing on the pounds to play boxer Jake La Motta. "It was kind of a fantasy [to put on weight for a role]. I thought maybe once in my life I would have to do that kind of transformation. And now it's done.

From Frank to Elvis? That might be Bono's next salute to a personal hero. No one is confirming, but the word is that U2's singer--fresh from his passionate tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes on the recent Grammy show--is set to participate in a Graceland-sponsored Presley tribute scheduled for Oct. 8 at the 14,000-seat Pyramid arena in Memphis. The affair will be telecast worldwide and later released on home video and CD.
