Poetry is in the front hall. Music in the living room. Books on books in the dining room. Science under the piano in the family room. Classics are in the little wooden bookshelf with glass paneled doors, but only run through Aristotle before they spill over into the den. There are 4,000 books inside the house, 10,000 more in storage. Once, the pantry held cans and plates and no books. Now, the shelves are filled with pages.

While the Southern California Assn. of Governments appeals the state to lower its expectation for new housing, currently 504,000 new units by 2005, Villa Park officials report that their tiny city is ahead of the game. The City Council recently approved a preliminary draft of the housing element report required by the state Department of Housing and Community Development. The report is intended to outline a city's housing needs and plans to meet that need over a five-year period.

The sign in the hotel elevator depicted a prickly fruit inside a circle with a slash through it. "No Durians Allowed," it read. "They smell," said the desk clerk at the Paradise Tanjung Bungah, explaining that the pungent but popular Asian fruit is unwelcome in most Malaysian hotels. "If you ate one on the first floor, you'd smell it on the third."

Somewhere in Dallas, a guy who sold his own life--whose journals are posted online, whose everyday speech is riddled with endorsements, whose movements even in sleep are scrutinized by millions of viewers--walks into the only room in his house where there's no camera and shuts the door. The video picture is idle. The audience waits. Come back, DotComGuy! We're bored without you. You're our voyeuristic treat. Your existence is our 24-7 Internet entertainment.

This is a one-pot dish. Most of the ingredients are items I keep on hand. In a large pot, brown 4 to 5 thinly sliced strips of bacon. Add 1/2 chopped onion. Brown well. Drain off most of the fat. Add 1/2 pound chopped spinach that has been rinsed in warm water and well drained. (Press it flat in a colander to drain.) Add 1 can creamy corn soup and 1 (6-ounce) can crab meat. Simmer gently 5 minutes, being careful not to let it boil. Serve topped with shredded Swiss cheese.

From the ads showing cherubic children holding hands and a flirty blond riding piggyback on a young boy, it might appear that the film "The Cider House Rules" is just a sweet-natured, coming-of-age story set in the 1940s. It is a coming-of-age story--but that's only a part of it. The movie actually deals head-on with incendiary subjects like abortion and incest. Some audience members have come out of the movie theater saying they were unprepared for what they saw.

"I used to do films where I got the girl," said Michael Caine with a roguish chuckle. "Now I just get the part." He's not complaining.

Independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's report is likely to be made public today, even as President Clinton tried Thursday to delay its release and assure his political supporters that he still can govern. As the question of impeachment hung ever heavier over Clinton's presidency, the House Rules Committee voted Thursday evening to release the report. The full House is expected to adopt that plan this morning.

Laurie Winer's review of the excellent production of "The Cider House Rules" ("Flat 'Cider,' " Calendar, July 13) at first leads one to believe that she did not bother to stay for the entire performance. On closer review, it seems she wasn't sure what to expect from a lengthier piece of theater and so she settled on debating the issue the play is about rather than appreciating the fine performances that I enjoyed. The play is thought-provoking, entertaining and showcases some of the best stage performances seen in recent years (particularly Michael Winters as Larch)
