Re "Never Condoned Lying Under Oath, Hyde Says," Dec. 9: So Rep. Henry Hyde thinks "trying to save Central America from a Castro takeover required some clandestine operations, and they required sometimes withholding information." So I guess when Ronald (I don't remember) Reagan, George (I was out of the loop) Bush, William (friend of Noriega) Casey and Oliver (proud of what I did) North looked the other way while tons of cocaine poured into the United States throughout the 1980s in the greatest scandal of the post-World War II era, that was just business as usual for the distinguished congressman from Illinois.

Ohio State's national title hopes got a big boost Tuesday with theĀ five words every big-time head coach loves to hear: "Charges will not be filed. " Columbus, Ohio police announced charges would not be filed against running back Carlos Hyde in connection to a July 20 bar incident in which he was named as a person of interest in an alleged assault. Buckeyes Coach Urban Meyer suspended Hyde pending an investigation. "We just have to evaluate the facts," Meyer said last week at Big Ten media day. "And once I evaluate the facts, then we'll make some decisions.

Can a nightclub grow up? After-dark venues tend to be short-lived, exploding onto the scene as the hot place to be and then soon shuttered once the gimmicks have run dry or rivals spring up. But Hyde, a night-life institution that saw a feverish intersection of celebrity, exclusivity and new media consumption in 2006, is getting a second chance. "When Hyde came around the first time, there was a market for a small place. Everything was hip-hop and I wanted to play rock music," recalls Brent Bolthouse, the night-life guru who teamed with SBE to conceive the venue.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Henry J. Hyde (R-Ill.), revisiting the Iran-Contra scandal of 1987, defended his support of President Reagan's advisors but insisted that he never condoned lying under oath. "I said 'context is everything,' and I stand by that," Hyde said during Tuesday's impeachment hearing. "Trying to save Central America from a Castro takeover required some clandestine operations, and they required sometimes withholding information." He was responding to Rep.

Meanwhile, "G.I. Joe" continues his journey to the screen under Kirkwood and Hyde. The producers--partnered in Cinecorp--are working with Warners on a feature based on the popular boy's doll from Hasbro. Scripted by John and Anthony Gentile, the movie is set in the near future and sees GI Joe dispatched on a mission to fight "one of the world's arch enemies." Hyde predicts "a fairly big budget," and a fall start date--"if we find the right director."

Re "Experts Differ, but GOP Pushes Impeachment," Nov. 10: I'm skeptical of Rep. Henry Hyde's (R-Ill.) professed concern for the "rule of law" as he grinds on toward impeachment. In light of Hyde's recently publicized extramarital affair, the only moral difference between him and President Clinton is that Hyde was fortunate enough to avoid being attacked by Ken Starr. Hyde is a poor choice to lead this moral crusade. FRANK SHOFNER Lake Forest I wish it would go away but it is like a Catch-22.

LAS VEGAS - He's the biggest nightclub owner in Los Angeles, the man whose Hyde Lounge and Shelter became prime hunting grounds for the paparazzi. He's been photographed cozying up with Paris Hilton, Kristin Cavallari and Sofia Vergara. When HBO's "Entourage" needed a club owner, he got the part - playing himself. Now Sam Nazarian is moving to shed his party boy image and become a Vegas mogul, hoping to parlay his success in L.A.'s fiercely competitive club scene into the cutthroat world of casinos.

To the Wonder Available on VOD beginning April 12 Early buzz on Terence Malick's film pegged it as a muddled rehash of the director's crazily ambitious "The Tree of Life," but that's not entirely accurate. Some of Malick's trademarks have become overfamiliar - such as the abundant shots of swaying grass and the elliptical, poetic narration - but "To the Wonder" is a beautiful and rewarding film and not that oblique.

Valentine's Day: a symbol of the eros-industrial complex created by a cabal of rose growers, chocolatiers, jewelers and calligraphers or the perfect time for true romantics to show the rest of us how it is done? Culture Monster has analyzed the situation and determined that because music has been getting people busy since long before St. Valentine came on the scene, taking your love to a concert is foolproof no matter what your V-Day philosophy. To make it even easier, we've matched relationship types to an ideally suited show.

Regarding the article on playwright Lynn Siefert ("The Unlikeliest of Love Stories," by Janice Arkatov, Dec. 3): Roseanne did not stage the initial reading of "Little Egypt." It was the premiere presentation of the "One Night Only" benefit, a celebrity play-reading series held on occasional Mondays at the Coronet Theatre that I produce. She was part of a cast that included Laurie Metcalf, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Annie Potts and Gregg Henry. It was a brilliant evening and the series continues.

The article states that Hyde has been in the House of Representatives for the past 26 years, and bemoans the increasing interest in limiting terms of office. I have shocking news for Hyde: Professional politicians are not what democracy is all about. Hyde states, "People who advocate this proposal accept the logical fallacy that 'new is better' and must believe that elective office is the one vocation where experience is an obstacle to good performance." Wrong! What should be said is that long terms in office are obstacles to the distribution of power.

Hollywood Boulevard is home to both the Pantages Theatre and Madame Tussauds, and there were times during the new production of "Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical" that I wondered if the two institutions had arranged a secret merger. This pre-Broadway touring production, which opened Tuesday at the Pantages, combines power singing and theatrical waxworks to retell the Robert Louis Stevenson tale of a doctor with a damnable dark side. The experience of the show, never a critic's darling, can only be compared to watching "American Idol" from inside an amusement park gallery showcasing the fiendish modus operandi of infamous murderers.

The lithe beauty in the form-fitting, flame-red sweater-jacket, even tighter black slacks and stiletto-heeled shoes with metal buckles planted herself in the lap of a strapping, handsome, lightly bearded fellow and started giving him a come-on in a saucy Cockney accent. Sitting 12 feet away, a second man watched with intense concentration, eyes fixed on the couple, chin cradled in his palm. In certain circumstances, this might be some kind of kinky fantasy. But here in a basement rehearsal room at the Pantages Theatre, it was serious show business.
