They are the first Vietnamese to seek public office in Orange County, and perhaps the nation, community leaders say.

Cat video aficionados know him as Henri Le Chat Noir, an existentialist cat who muses about the meaninglessness of life in a popular series of YouTube videos. But don't be fooled by the vacant stares and the bored looks of disgust. Strip away the undulating piano music and the melancholy French voice-over and what you get is a cat named Henry staring blankly at the camera, usually because filmmaker William Braden is trying every trick in the book to get his attention. A few weeks ago, I flew up to Seattle to meet Braden, a former wedding videographer turned professional cat video maker, and his feline muse.

The U.S. Constitution, that model of justice, apparently does not apply when sex is involved. Freedom of speech takes precedence over "innocent until proven guilty," and the accusation becomes the verdict: guilty until proven innocent. Anyone who holds a grudge, or wants fame, has only to claim sexual victimization to become an instant media star. Whether or not the charge is true, the life of the accused will never be the same. The media do not wait for due process of the law, nor does the public's appetite for sensational sex. Whether or not the accusations have merit, regardless of truth, the accused person's life will never be the same.

March 23, 1998 | ANITA MANN, Anita Mann is an Emmy Award-winning choreographer, producer and director who (as choreographer on "The Muppets") taught Miss Piggy to tap. She is currently producing "Tap Girls," a female tap dance show that is, in part, a response to male-dominated tap dance shows such as "Tap Dogs" and "Noise/Funk." She is president of Anita Mann Productions in Santa Monica
In response to "Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk" star Derick K. Grant's remarks about tap-dancing (" 'Noise's' Heir Apparent," Calendar, March 17), surely he is being elitist, not to say sexist, when he puts down female tap-dancers so strongly ("You have to take tap as seriously as I do to share the stage with me. . . . And there are some women who are like that but not the majority.") And also condescending. ("You don't see many men teaching.

Glendale College was introduced to a strange new phenomenon Saturday: the close football game. The Vaqueros, who outscored their first 3 opponents, 124-13, and looked as though they might go unchallenged this season, were brought down to earth against Compton, winning only 27-9 in a Western State Conference game at Glendale High. "I guess we thought we could beat anybody. They showed us we were wrong," Glendale quarterback Darren Fitzgerald said. "It was a good experience for us.

The strongly worded Commentary by Henry Le, "Power of the Vietnamese-American Vote" (Dec. 4), provides readers with mixed signals, unless there was some breakdown in the translation. I agree with his zeal in urging voters to exercise their right to vote, but disagree totally with what he offers his countrymen as a reward. He wants Vietnamese-Americans to ". . . fight for those policies and laws that would benefit our people and motherland." He further states: "The Vietnamese arriving in the U.S. since 1975 are all political refugees.
