Elvis was not cooperating. I wanted to raise his back left leg and clean his hoof. Elvis wanted to be left alone. I pinched, prodded and pulled. Elvis remained as rigid as a carousel charger. "Do you rely on charming people?" asked Wyatt Webb, a beefy, bearded, cowboy-therapist who was monitoring my futility. Huh? Sure. I guess so. "Charm's not going to work on a horse," he said. "Stop thinking, and commit to what you're going to do. Walk purposely to him. The last step same as the first.

To Randy Lewis: How does it feel to be the Patrick Henry of the LP revolution? ("For the Record, CDs Are a Music Industry Scam," Calendar, Feb. 26). Picture this scenario: Gangs of disaffected music lovers seize shipments of CDs and dump them into Newport Bay while shouting untimely slogans--"Give me LPs or give me death! A CD without an LP is tyranny! Look, it's Elvis!" Well, maybe not Elvis. But listen, Don Quixote breath, your column is swell. Keep us posted. RON BRUNO Huntington Beach

"THE Rolling Stones surrendered their 'world's greatest rock 'n' roll band' title long ago to U2." Are you serious? Or did mommy and daddy not give enough attention to you as a child? What is next -- Elvis was overrated? SCOTT LAIRD Cleveland, Ohio

Although I enjoyed Monica Parcell's piece on cooking versus baking, I was struck by her comment that the Germans "have the most magnificent pastry-making tradition in the world" ("Elvis Vs. the Beatles," Style, Sept. 11). In my experience, the best strudel is Austrian and the best baked goods are French. (And I'll take the Beatles.) Roxane Winkler Sherman Oaks

Thank you CBS, NBC and ABC for showing "Windmills of the Gods," "Rambo: First Blood, Part 2" and "Elvis and Me" opposite one another at 9 p.m. on Feb. 7. Which one did I watch? None of them. I decided not to worry about which to watch and read a book instead. That's what I will continue to do. Thanks again! Evelyn L. Teeling, Los Angeles
