So American Express has reserved, for Gold Card members only, select seats to January and February performances of "The Phantom of the Opera" (advertisement in the June 25 Calendar). These tickets are not yet available to the public. Thus those of us whose incomes aren't quite up to snuff must wait for whatever nosebleed seats remain. What's the next elitist market tactic? Will BMW promise, "Buy a Beamer, get choice Phantom tix"? LAURA GOLDMAN Redondo Beach

NEW YORK - Police identified a suspect in the hit-and-run deaths of a young married couple Monday, hours after their premature baby boy also died. Authorities were seeking Julio Acevedo, 44, believed to be the driver of a BMW that hit a cab carrying Nathan and Raizy Glauber, both 21. The Glaubers were rushing to a hospital early Sunday because Raizy wasn't feeling well. Her husband had called the cab because, like many New Yorkers, the family didn't own a car. The accident occurred in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

I cannot believe that suffering needs proper English or Spanish to be understood or attended to. Such response on the part of charitable services is unconscionable. Further, I cannot understand why we continue to pretend that a working knowledge of Spanish isn't necessary for life in Los Angeles. Perhaps, if some status points were applied to the speaking of Spanish, being bilingual would be as popular among the upwardly mobile as driving a BMW. LOIS DRAKE Hermosa Beach

Having spent two years living in Geneva and traveling extensively throughout the Alps, followed by a return to the U.S. and the subsequent purchase of a 1976 BMW motorcycle, I was exuberant to find the article "Fast Times in the Alps" (by Craig Ligibel, Special Travel Issue, March 30). However, as soon as I saw the words "the ultimate guy trip," the pounding in my ears almost became unbearable. As a female rider with 40,000 miles of accident-free riding, I too have taken my BMW through wild terrains of loose gravel (and sand, sleet, lava and stream crossings)

The Jeep that struck a BMW in a fiery head-on collision that killed a teen-age girl in Emerald Bay over the weekend was driven illegally by a 15-year-old boy, California Highway Patrol officials said Tuesday. CHP officer Raul Martinez said that the boy, who had told authorities he was a passenger in the Jeep and that a 17-year-old was driving, was himself the driver. "Several witnesses have come through. . . . We have positively identified the driver," Martinez said. Valerie Hacker, 16, of Newport Beach died from injuries suffered in the Sunday night collision.
