It's about romance, a plane and most important of all, all that jazz at Aerobleu, a fictional Paris club, currently getting the red-carpet merchandising treatment. Christened "Aerobleu, the Spirit of Cool," the collection of goods including books by jazz historian Gene Lees and novelist Alston Chase, posters, stationery, frames, clocks, ties, scarves, furniture, dinnerware and glassware--the works--is playing in Bloomingdale's, Z Gallerie, Barnes & Noble and Tower Books & Records.

THANKS to Jane Engle for trying to bring some sanity to the cost of rooms ["Neither Motel 6 nor the Ritz, These Hotels Meet You Halfway," Travel Insider, March 12] . We do not have unlimited funds and would rather eat well and sightsee than squander money on a fancy hotel room. We use affinity cards and join the various chains to accrue points and get better treatment at check-in and perhaps even on room prices. BILL GAVITT Riverside

A 57-year-old man apologized today for lunging at Princess Diana as she shook hands with well-wishers at a center for the mentally handicapped. Edward Adcock of Bedlington said he meant no harm Thursday when he jumped over a low railing and jostled the princess. "I may appear calm on the surface, but inside me there is turmoil," Adcock said in newspaper interviews published today. Adcock touched Diana's arm before he was intercepted by her bodyguards. He is free on bail.

Re "Keep Driver's Licenses for Legal Residents," letters, April 4: Priscilla Espinoza should please remember that "these foreigners [who] have broken our immigration laws" need a ride to clean houses, scrub toilets, care and nurture the little ones and the elderly, manicure lawns, cook at fancy restaurants, park luxury cars, tend to the fields at the crack of dawn. For anyone not to recognize this is unthinkable. What is un-American is the ungrateful treatment these hard-working women and men endure every single day. Myrna S. Villegas Tellez South Pasadena

So Intrawest wants to make Mammoth the best mountain in the country (May 28)? Well, it already is. All the mansions and fancy restaurants in the world won't improve on the natural beauty--they'll just make it so only the rich can enjoy it. Perhaps it's time real estate developers received the same scorn the public reserves for ambulance chasers. BRIAN HOBBS Manhattan Beach

Just when I thought there was nothing to watch during the summer, KCOP aired "Rape." I commend the station for its courage to air the program unedited. It dealt with a real problem and should not have been prettied up in any manner by fancy editing. To all those involved, thank you for a glimpse of how television should be used. Jeff Kifer, Hollywood
