The price of the party palace that rapper Drake bought in Hidden Hills last month has yet to make its way into the public record. Listed at $16.9 million in 2009, it was most recently set at $8.65 million. Outside of its new owner, perhaps the striking feature of the nearly 3-acre property is the grotto-style swimming pool with back-lighted waterfalls and an 80-foot slide. Other outdoor amenities include a tennis court, stalls for five horses, a riding arena, a mechanic bull and a viewing pavilion.

In a recent letter to The Times, T. Downey of Glendale suggests a boycott of Tecate beer as a measure of our disgust and revulsion at the annual running of the "bulls" (calves) in that city. The barbarism and brutality of this event has been well-documented by the media. Downey's idea is a good one and may well be carried a step further by letting the mayor of Tecate know why we will no longer drink his city's cerveza. Address your protests to: Alcalde Cesar Moreno Martinez de Escobar, Tecate, Baja California, Mexico.

MIAMI AT CHICAGO Saturday at 5 p.m. TV: NBA TV. In a welcome development, the attention the Heat gets now is for stuff that happens on the court, as opposed to conspiracy theories and dumb TV specials. This will be the fifth game of a five-game trip that began with Friday's win in Milwaukee and will take them to the West Coast and back... with the big question being whether anyone can beat them on the way. They're 20-1 since starting 9-8 when Coach Erik Spoelstra seemed to be dangling, including their Christmas rout of the Lakers.

Re "Pit Bull Kills Dog," July 12. As evidenced by two recent incidents in Canoga Park, neither innocent humans nor helpless pets are safe from pit bulls--not even in their own yards. While we still want to believe that "it is not the dog, just the owner," we must finally admit we are faced with an entirely different strain of dog now--one that is being inbred, abused and / or trained into a frenzied insanity. A few years ago an attack on a human by a pit bull was almost unheard of, but today [the dogs]
