In a ruling likely to delight grammar school teachers, a state appellate court has decided that winning a lawsuit does not exempt an attorney from a higher duty: spelling properly. The decision, handed down this week by the 4th District Court of Appeal in Santa Ana, upheld a lower court ruling that in effect set the price of the letter "t" at $50,000.
"Man of the House" is a serious comedy that works better when it's serious. It cuts to the heart of a contemporary phenomenon all too familiar to countless youngsters, that of having to adjust to a stepparent or to a parent's lover. An understated Chevy Chase couldn't be better as a fearless Seattle-based federal prosecutor who faces his greatest challenge trying to win over the 11-year-old son (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) of his girlfriend (Farrah Fawcett).

Gosh! How shocking that Farrah Fawcett encountered misogyny and chauvinism at Playboy of all places ("Reinventing Farrah," by Robin Abcarian, June 6). Why, the last time I smeared my naked body with gold paint and flung it around in front of a bunch of woman-as-sex-toyplation guys, they couldn't have been sweeter, complimenting me on the rapid firing of my brain synapses. And then when I covered my nude torso with pearlescent glitter and rode bareback around the offices of Larry Flynt, they immediately asked me to give an impromptu discourse on quantum physics for the layperson.

As W. C. Fields might have cautioned us, no one steals a movie scene like a well-lit baby. And, in "Three Men and a Baby" (citywide), both the babies and the lighting are expert. Twins Lisa and Michelle Blair--jointly playing a infant left unexpectedly on the doorstep of three swinging New York bachelors--coo, bat their eyes, clap and soil their surroundings with eerie expertise.
