Re "Bus-see TV," So-Cal Life, Nov. 20 Tim Cavanaugh's piece was far too rosy a review of this public nuisance. The TransitTVs are an insult to bus riders. Surely the MTA would not put such devices on its rail lines and besiege its more affluent ridership with debt consolidation advertisements and the weather conditions in Dallas. If Metro is looking for new ways to make money, it should install TransitTV in all the cars of MTA executives to pester them during their drive to work -- or better yet, make them actually take the bus to see what it's like.

It might be too much to ask for Ivan Neville to make music as spirited as the Neville Brothers--New Orleans' musical first family made up of Ivan's father and uncles. But you'd at least expect a Neville Nephew to make music you could dance to. It wasn't so Thursday at the Roxy, where the touted singer/keyboardist/guitarist made his local debut with his band the Room, showcasing songs from the coming LP "If My Ancestors Could See Me Now."

As cars whizzed by and trucks honked, two dozen members of the East Side Riders from Watts slowly pedaled their cruisers up Central Avenue early Sunday. Their destination was seven miles away: CicLAvia, a rare opportunity to enjoy 10 miles of car-free streets in downtown Los Angeles and beyond and to soak up the spirit of what turned out to be a citywide block party. "Watts in the house!" boomed a disc jockey as the group pulled into the African American Firefighter Museum and joined an estimated 100,000 people who biked, walked or skated block after block without having to dodge a car or bus. "Right now they're going to get a chance to ride the streets without cars interfering with their leisurely bike ride," John Jones said of his fellow Riders members.
