I am certainly not the only one who finds offense not in the nudity of Icarus, but in the symbol of Icarus. How could anyone choose as the patron for an airport an immature god who through pilot error causes his wings to fall off and crashes! How about Pegasus instead? Who could be offended by a nude horse? And it flies! DALE O'NEAL Laguna Beach

DOUBTLESS, Thomas Edison would be amused. Originally, lamps were simply objects to be used for reading in the dark. Then the Italians transformed them into gorgeous pieces of sculpture. Now, many contemporary high-design Italian lamps look shriveled and anorexic. The lamps themselves, however, are only half the story. Their dramatic shadow projections also serve as ornaments.

It's a real joy to see that we finally found a problem with the new terminal at John Wayne Airport that is worthy of Orange County. I mean, all this blather about running millions of dollars over budget and opening almost six months late got pretty boring. It took a long time, but at last we stumbled into the area of morality, which we do--and I say this in all modesty and will defend our position stoutly--better than any other place in the nation.

Ah, the male nude. From the classic proportions of Greek sculpture, to the gathering power of Michelangelo's "David," to the amputees and dwarfs by contemporary photographer George Dureau, the male figure has been portrayed variously by artists throughout history. At the Photowest Gallery downtown, the more decorative aspects of form prevail in an exhibit of 42 images by San Diego photographers David Eliot and Jeff Palmer. Called "Interpretations of the Male Nude," the exhibit of black and white photographs might also be titled "Formal and Sensuous" or "Warm and Cool."

The emerging conventional wisdom that the West must bail out Russia's collapsing financial system to stave off fascism has it exactly backward. The current banking crisis presents Russia with its best--and perhaps last--opportunity to check the power of the parasitic financial-industrial oligarchy that has persistently retarded Russia's political and economic development.

Officials overseeing an art program at John Wayne Airport will hold an "emergency meeting" today to decide whether to print a poster commemorating the opening of the facility's new terminal. A printer who volunteered to produce the poster for free has objected to nudity in the artwork. Bob Cashman, owner of Hallmark Litho Inc.
