I'm saddened by the firing of Doug Rader. But, as we all know, in baseball, there has to be a fall guy. I wish Buck Rodgers a lot of luck. However, if I were the Angels, my choice for manager would have to be Dale Carnegie. Maybe he could motivate this group of veterans whose on-base percentages will never equal their respective ages.

I've had it with people complaining about the short-lived inconveniences caused by the marathon-related traffic jams. The long-term benefits of the marathon to L.A. far outweigh such inconvenience. Besides, the event was well publicized, including street closures, and afforded all an opportunity to plan to travel using alternate routes. To the gentleman who suggested rerouting the marathon to Catalina, why doesn't he go there next year at marathon time--on a one-way ticket.

Ah yes, I remember fondly the many evenings spent driving through Bob's Big Boy restaurant in Burbank when I was a high school student in the '60s. I'm now a grown-up resident of neighboring Toluca Lake, which means I drive past that eyesore often. I'd prefer not being reminded that our taste in architecture and style is reflected in that building. Mr. Moruzzi's attempt to preserve hamburger stands in making Bob's a state Historic Point of Interest makes me laugh . . . and cringe.

March 1, 1987 | TOM HUTH, Tom Huth divides his time between the Colorado mountains and Los Angeles.
On the day that Liberace was supposed to draw his final breath, and for the eight days preceding that, George Finney and his wife were camped in their '74 Dodge in a parking lot across from the entertainer's home in Palm Springs. Unlike the other people who gathered there by daylight waiting for the man to die, George was not a fan, and in fact, as the vigil wore on he was coming to dislike Liberace even more, because his own dream of redemption was dying in that hacienda, too.

November 9, 1986 | Maureen Howard, Howard's most recent novel is "Expensive Habits" (Summit). and
Kathy Acker's work is not outrageous. That is what first comes to mind reading the abortion scene that launches her new novel, "Don Quixote." We have all been there--not to the bloody chamber of horrors she describes--but to the highly fabricated world of this story. Unless we have been wrapped in cotton wool or sent to the nunnery, we are fully prepared for the sexual and political extremes with which Acker purposes to alarm, amuse, and, at times, anesthetize the readers of her fiction.

Though I have struggled vainly here with such profound questions as the definition of time and of love, and the difference between prose and poetry, I have always imagined that I had indeed nailed down the final answer to one great literary question: Who wrote or first said that immortal line, "Let me get out of these wet clothes and into a dry martini"?
