Wearing a gaudy cowhide coat, Jason Stuart steps on stage and laments, "Oh, God. I'm so nervous being here, I've been eating and eating and eating and I feel like I look like a cow! "I was recently in South Carolina, which scared the hell out of them. And I got off the plane there and I was wearing this coat and this guy tried to shoot me. . . . And then he tied me to the side of the car . . . which I really liked!

Re "City Vents Anger at Illegal Immigrants," July 14 One Hazleton, Pa., resident's comment, "The only ones who are against it are the Hispanics and that's because it's against them," sounds suspiciously like something that might have been uttered in Nazi Germany -- just change "Hispanics" to "Jews." Notice she says "Hispanics" and not "illegal immigrants." And I am supposed to believe the issue is illegal immigration and not racism? Although I can put my faith in the courts to strike down this legislation upon the first challenge, the fact that something like this can even be passed by a city council in the 21st century fills me with fear and wonder.

Actor-comedian Jason Stuart isn't the first performer to come out of the closet and announce that he's gay. He's only one of the more recent. But even though the heavy weather of persecution for sexual orientation has lifted somewhat in the '90s, his restless anxiety, his eagerness to please mixed with a wariness of being ridiculed, his sense of fun and his sense of fear, all point to the experience of being gay as a full-time vigil.

Re "Governor's Vow: 'The State of Our State Will Soon Be Strong,' " Jan. 7: It is an unconscionable proposition that we can revive the basic tenets of civil society -- good and accessible education, quality care and services for the infirm, disabled and elderly -- by eliminating their funding. California will only recover by implementing a strategically oriented plan to generate revenue, alongside cuts that eliminate wasteful spending, as a means for reducing its deficit. Let's swallow hard and realize that were we to tax services -- we could even just start with luxury services -- we'd probably generate enough revenue annually to cover half of the hole that Schwarzenegger is trying so soullessly to backfill.

Is honesty the best policy? It depends. George Washington, apparently, suffered no ill effects from his cherry tree episode. Bruce Wayne and Peter Parker get along OK, even though they adamantly refuse to reveal their secret identities of Batman and Spiderman to everyone except 40 billion comic book readers. Comedian Jason Stuart came out about being gay last year, and so far his career has suffered no ill effects.

Regarding "Heard the One About Lesbian Comics?" by Jan Breslauer (July 18): I have to agree with Lea DeLaria when she states that "if gays are making it into the mainstream, don't put them upstairs in their little room." Segregating performers by race, color, sex or sexual persuasion only tends to insulate them from the mainstream. Blacks, women, gays, Latinos and even WASPs (little joke) have always been a part of the Improv's regular presentations. Our only criterion is that they be funny.

The culture of complaint has a new outlet with comedians Jason Stuart and Jeff Wayne, who are touring their "The Great Gay-Straight Comedy Debate." Like a quasi-Lincoln-Douglas debate for the '90s comedy club set, the Stuart-Wayne faceoff is keen on hitting social hot buttons while pumping up the profiles of the two debaters. Their tour hit the Improv in Irvine on Monday, and it took a while for the hot buttons to start up the audience.

As a side attraction to "Big Daddy's Barbecue," the openly heterosexual Jeff Wayne will debate the openly gay Jason Stuart at the Brea Improv on April 10. The pairing sprang from lifestyle arguments Stuart and Wayne had while both were working at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles. The pair decided to out their differences in a debate. The first one was in Tempe, Ariz., earlier this year.

Friday night: A ride on the Ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier with my beloved Ian. The view is incredible and it's very romantic. Then a walk to Ocean Avenue Seafood, where even a vegetarian like me can find plenty to enjoy. Saturday morning: A mountain bike ride starting at Paseo Miramar in Pacific Palisades and extending through Trippet Ranch in Topanga, followed by breakfast at A Votre Sante in Brentwood.
