S. Irene Virbila's review of Los Feliz Restaurant ("Sophisticated Lady," June 11) betrays her snobbish and condescending views of L.A. neighborhoods and restaurants. Apparently, Virbila believes that fine dining exists only on the Westside. "I never expected to find such a sophisticated dining establishment," she writes. Why? Because Los Feliz isn't as tony as Beverly Hills? Bob Stock Los Angeles

RE "Has He Got Next?" by Patrick Goldstein, Nov. 8: No doubt Jimmy Iovine has been successful in mining the urban black culture for business success. However, he does seem to have a limited understanding of the reasons there is concern in these same communities with the "Get Rich or Die Tryin' " billboards that sport 50 Cent holding a gun and microphone. I think it accurate to say that movie billboards with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Matt Damon carrying guns don't have the same impact on urban black youth as does one with 50 Cent.

Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. hangs up from Orenthal James Simpson's regular Saturday afternoon call from jail. His voice is fatherly. "We just talk. Juice will undoubtedly call once or twice again tonight. Juice is lonely." Cochran's round, pleasant face saddens behind oversized glasses anchored to a 24-karat gold band. He gazes out his office window. "Juice is lonely...all by himself." His eyes flick my way for reaction. Vintage Cochran before a jury he must win over. "Doesn't O.J.

The signs were all there. Stores selling aromatherapeutic candles and Guatemalan renderings of the Sorrowful Virgin had sprung out of nowhere. Parking-friendly streets previously inhabited by the stray Datsun were suddenly lined fore to aft with rogue Beemers, Miatas and lemon Lifesaver-hued Mercedes SLKs. Lines for the Vista theater and the Good Luck Bar wound up one block and down the other.

In January, President Obama announced a block-by-block approach to relieving poverty in Los Angeles. Federal money, he said, would pour into a newly created Promise Zone. The boundaries encompassed crowded immigrant communities around MacArthur Park and Koreatown, as well as upscale areas of Hollywood and Los Feliz. Left out was South L.A., where the poverty rate is higher. The exclusion stunned many South L.A. leaders. The strategy, presidential aides said, was to concentrate resources in communities where nonprofits or public agencies had already received one of the Obama administration's signature urban renewal grants.

Los Feliz was buzzing Sunday afternoon as crowds of people lined up for hours to grab a cup of coffee from, uh, Dumb Starbucks. The mock store, which quietly opened Friday, is nearly identical to a typical Starbucks location, with tumblers and CDs, including "Dumb Jazz Standards," on display - but not for sale. Drinks are served in cups that mock the Seattle coffee giant's logo, while pastries are pulled from display cases straight in their Vons' packaging. The menu features such offerings as Dumb Iced Coffee, Dumb Frappuccinos and Wuppy Duppy Latte.

But the similarities end there. Drinks here are served in green and white “Dumb Starbucks coffee” cups, while pastries are pulled from display cases straight from their Vons' packaging.

El Mercado, the assemblage of Mexican shops, groceries and restaurants on East First Street, is decked with signs of the season. In the parking lot the other day, a painter was brightening the pink dress of the Virgin of Guadalupe, whose portrait graces a back wall. The Virgin is La Patrona de Mexico--the patron saint of Mexico--and is honored at a little shrine inside the market. Closely linked to the holidays because her day of tribute is Dec.

SOMEWHERE between a dorm-room poster of Monet's waterlilies and the Robert Rauschenberg painting owned by Eli Broad is another level -- the beginnings of an art collection that can be built by anyone with a few grand to spend.
