Ted Danson strolled along Santa Monica Beach, a bit overdressed among the sneaker-and-sandal crowd in his crisp button-down and dark blazer draped elegantly over one shoulder. As he studied the horizon, an incognito Dave Chappelle caught his eye and Danson deftly sidestepped a clutch of oncoming tourists to present himself before the comedian. "How are you?" he asked, offering his hand and tilting that closely cropped snow-white head of his. "You are like a hero in my family." Chappelle, dressed for a jog, looked braced for Ashton Kutcher and the "Punk'd" crew.

Hip, hip, hooray for Austria for standing up to Jewish propaganda in electing Kurt Waldheim. I hope now we will look into the criminal past of the leaders of the Jewish entity in Palestine as well. Will Menachem Begin be barred from entering the United States, too? ANDRE NICOLAI Carlsbad

Some comments on Nina J. Easton's July 30 article about the Ron Howard's film "Parenthood," which, according to the headline, "reflects the movies' latest discovery: kids and families." Brian Grazer, Howard's partner in Imagine Films, is quoted as saying: "Now being hip is being a responsible dad. . . . It's hip to have substance." Hip? He makes child rearing sound like the latest dance step. 'Hip to have substance" now? Does that mean that a short time ago it was "hip to be superficial"?

The season is officially over for Jerry Hairston Jr., the Dodgers' utility player extraordinaire. The Dodgers announced after Wednesday's game that Hairston will have surgery on his left hip sometime in the next two weeks. Hairston has been on the disabled list since Aug. 13 with what the Dodgers initially called an inflamed hip. He did not respond to an anti-inflammatory injection last week. Head trainer Sue Falsone said Tuesday that Hairston would likely be examined by a couple more hip specialists before the exact nature of his potential surgery was determined, but it would likely involve an arthroscopic procedure similar to what is more commonly performed on shoulders.
