Mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin dreams in vivid color - though she's been blind since birth. Yellow? That's the scent of ripe lemons and the warm sun glinting off her cheeks as a child in Encino. White is the crunch of snow and the feel of frothy shaving cream oozing between her fingers. Silver is the cool silkiness of chrome. And brown? That's the sound of B-flat. It reminds the singer of chocolate. "I always joke that part of me can sense color from maybe having had a past life," Rubin says.

Regarding Jack Mathews' article, I have seen these colorized video tapes because I eagerly bought them. I had a showing at my place and everyone there seemed absolutely delighted with the color process. Age group? 20s to 50s . . . they all loved it. Isn't it absolutely marvelous that those producers who begged their studios to do a film in color in the late '40s but were refused because of the cost of color can now get even and have a computer color the very film they wished to have in color?

Memo to Plaschke, et al.: Friends who have seen my letters in The Times sports section have commented that I must have too much time on my hands. But at least I'm not sitting around, wringing my hands over the color of the UCLA basketball uniforms! BOB WARNOCK Eagle Rock

Re "Hussein Clan May Have a Billion Ways to Foment Unrest," May 7: Since Saddam Hussein may have millions of dollars of American currency in his possession, isn't it about time that America change the color of its money? This would wipe out many enemies of America, including drug cartels and crooked businesses. Paul E. Seal Palm Springs

Rumor has it from census data that Los Angeles is one of several counties in California where people of color are in the majority. This airy fact consistently eludes Calendar. Within the course of one week, Calendar covered the career of white filmmaker Alexander Payne and spotlighted four up-and-coming male filmmakers ("Filmmakers on the Verge," Sept. 30). The Times' failure to include any filmmakers of color in its profiles reinforces the racism of the Hollywood machine. Talented up-and-coming filmmakers of color are not getting the deals, perks and media fawning because of the industry's deeply rooted biases toward perspectives that don't conform to its ghettoized image of people of color.

A low-cost plastic iPhone in different colors has been rumored for a while, and now the device may have a name: the iPhone 5C. A photo hit the Web this weekend allegedly showing a bunch of the store boxes for the plastic iPhone. On the sides of the cases you can see "iPhone 5C. " Some doubted whether the picture and the name would really be what Apple called their plastic iPhone, but Business Insider is reporting that the iPhone 5C may indeed be the moniker for the low-cost smartphone.

As Soccer America Daily noted when they posted this video, soccer defenders don't usually pass the ball back to their goalkeeper from midfield. So you can't blame keeper Tom Woodhead for being a bit surprised when teammate Steven Gardner launched a ball toward his own net from 40 yards away early in the second half of a Northern Premier League match in Manchester, England. Gardner, who plays for Frickley Athletic, was battling for possession just inside the midfield stripe, when he elected to clear the ball from danger.

Brightly colored images from discarded magazines create of-the-moment sculpture in the latest line from Frazier & Wing. The new mobiles consist of a transparent plastic top supporting two-sided paper discs, hand-cut and strung with monofilament by designer Heather Frazier of Portland, Ore. You may see dahlias on one side of a disc, strawberry shortcake on the other. Kettle Chips ads have never looked so good.

Barbara Hernandez's article ["A Woman of Color Who's Seeing Red," Aug. 24] reminded me of something a Hispanic nurse told me last week. "When my husband died and my kids and I moved into a condo, I overheard a neighbor say to his elderly father, 'There goes the neighborhood -- the Mexicans are moving in.' But I got him good. Three years later I married him!" RICHARD SHOWSTACK Newport Beach I am one wide-eyed, grateful Anglo guy for whom great lessons in intimacy have been taught by women of many colors, shapes and sizes.

Several innovations are occuring in the fax industry for both the business person and the general consumer. For example, the use of color for business documents has already taken place in computers and copy machines, and it seems the fax industry will be no exception. Color faxes will reach the market as soon as engineers overcome the technological challenge of image compression at a workable cost.
