We expect indecent exposure from books by children of celebrities. Not so from Gail Lumet Buckley, one of Lena Horne's two children from her marriage to Louis Jones of Pittsburgh. Rather, Buckley has written a family portrait with her mother and herself at the center, which reaches out to include her mother's people--the Hornes of Tennessee and the Calhouns of Georgia.

Gail Buckley complains that "(Steven) Corbin's three black male characters are lamentable in the extreme. Two are more or less homosexual. . . ." This shockingly homo-phobic statement is an example of a biased and ignorant kind of thinking that is itself much more "lamentable in the extreme" than the sexual orientation of any person, whether fictional or not.

VERY glad to see your article on this Chilean wine ("Wanted: Fighting Varietal, March 22). I had recently been browsing at Albertson's and saw this varietal under the Origin label. Always willing to try something new, especially at a very reasonable price, I picked it up, and my husband and I enjoyed it with lamb chops. I thought it good enough to go back and purchase another bottle to share with friends. GAIL BUCKLEY Los Angeles

Janet Jackson has been left out in the rain after "Stormy Weather" singer Lena Horne balked at having the younger star play her in a planned television movie. The 86-year-old Horne reportedly is angry about Jackson's breast-baring stunt at the Super Bowl and pressured ABC to drop Jackson from the project, the trade newspaper Variety reported Tuesday.

"My life has been about surviving," Lena Horne says. "Along the way I also became an artist." She is precisely right about that. At 79, Horne is not only a survivor with incredible presence and a well-tuned sense of self, she also continues to be a gifted and articulate performer. Her thoughtful commentary is a key element in "Lena Horne: In Her Own Voice," the first installment in the 11th season of PBS' "American Masters" biography series. "It's been an interesting journey," she adds.

Our lost children Re "Innocents betrayed: Flawed county system lets children die invisibly," Oct. 11 Although it is fair to assume there are many shortcomings in the system, I feel blame needs to be shared. The tragedy is in the utter lack of parental responsibility. I fear The Times' article is more focused on the state of the county's child welfare and juvenile justice system than in addressing the real culprit here. Both Miguel Padilla and Lazhanae Harris were abandoned by their parents with tragic consequences to their early development.

As a young girl during World War II, Gail Buckley tended to the radishes in her victory garden, learned the hymn of every branch of the U.S. armed forces and dreamed of being a hero. But despite growing up in the relative privilege of Hollywood as the daughter of singer Lena Horne, she soon learned that black patriots were rarely recognized in America.

In the back workroom at the Clayhouse in Santa Monica, Doris Spivak is creating a shoe sculpture, Gail Buckley is teaching hand-building pottery and Anthe Wosczyna is working at the potter's wheel. Out front, Clayhouse owner Tani Sims-Ebert is presiding over the gallery space, which features bowls by 30 studio members. This truly is a place where there's something for everyone. Prices start at $5, but can reach $70, and each potter's work is distinct from the others'.
