Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on Thursday submitted legislation to sell the electricity monopoly, a sale three times larger than previous steps in her campaign to dispose of nationalized industries. Financial analysts have said the sale of the power generating and distribution system in England and Wales, to be completed by mid-1991, may be worth anywhere from $30 billion to $50 billion. Two separate companies will be set up in Scotland, while Northern Ireland is not affected.

Robert Hilburn objecting to Rolling Stone's "100 Best Singles of the Last 25 Years" as arbitrary and unfair ("Rolling Stone Snubs Early Rock Stars," Aug. 27)?

In the first place, who coughs up list after list in the pages of The Times: the Top 10 "alternative" singles of the last six months, the records to spend $25 on each month, and endlessly more? Given that Hilburn frequently spends nearly as much time describing the ground rules of his lists as talking about the music on them, he must know as well as anyone that a list without parameters is meaningless.

As a longtime sideman to Garth Brooks, Ty England certainly has witnessed his share of hero's welcomes. * But the slender Oklahoma native, Brooks' college buddy who went on to a six-year gig playing acoustic guitar in Brooks' touring band, was left bashfully beaming and appeared a little shocked when he got one of his own Tuesday night at the Crazy Horse Steak House.

Tony Wilson, who has been called both the Donald Trump and the Brian Epstein of the local rock scene, placed two blank pieces of white paper on the desk in front of him.
