I read Paul Mazursky's essay on screener videos with much amusement, as I am good friends with a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ("Pirate Booty," Metropolis, Feb. 29). Of course, I didn't get to borrow any videos this year, which is a real shame since I recently purchased a DVD copying machine. But how could my friend say "no" to his adult daughter? His unique solution: His daughter married a cinematographer--an academy member--so her family was eligible to view the precious tapes.

Any performer who is so insecure that he would attack a photographer at a public performance does not deserve our support ("Axl Rose Blames Lax Security for Melee," Calendar, July 5). Thank you, Axl. You just saved me $32 on your new albums. GARY DAVIS Culver City

Why should we spend $1.6 billion to prop up Russia's economy when there's poverty, homeless people, and unemployment right here at home? Because it's cheaper than spending $100 billion planning to nuke them! GARY DAVIS Culver City

Re "CMT presents Kiss Me Kate," Janice Arkatov, April 16. It's hard to believe Gary Davis said of "Kiss Me Kate," ". . . I was amazed at how good the songs were." It's embarrassing that the artistic director of the prestigious California Music Theatre was apparently unfamiliar with the show. From whence did he fall into his job? JOHN DEGATINA Studio City

Robert Hilburn is right that Hole dominated Lollapalooza '95 ("Lolla-gal-ooza!," Aug. 16) but wrong that it wasn't a power play. On Tuesday's show, Courtney Love refused to wrap up her set and used a substantial portion of headliner Sonic Youth's time. Many fans were cursing her name at 11:30 p.m. when [Hole's extended performance] forced Sonic Youth to end their set early. GARY DAVIS Culver City

There was no mistaking the vehemence that Gov. Gray Davis once attached to his mission to strong-arm parents into helping improve the lot of students in the state's beleaguered schools. "Parents simply must face up to their responsibilities in educating their own children," he told a Los Angeles audience in September 1997, in what was billed by his gubernatorial campaign as the intellectual kickoff to his candidacy.

For most young people, high school graduation night is a time of pride and celebration. For Robert Rosenkrantz, police believe, it was a night on which his darkest secret was exposed, a time of shame and humiliation. It led to a first-degree murder charge against the 18-year-old Calabasas High School graduate, accused of gunning down a schoolmate who discovered his secret. Investigators theorize that events on Rosenkrantz's graduation night, June 21, drove him to kill 17-year-old Steven Redman.
