Given his druthers, Jerry Harrison would have spent the year as a Talking Head. Instead, he is whiling away summer evenings on stage with a band that could be dubbed "not quite the Talking Heads." "I was hoping (Talking Heads) would do either an album, a tour, or both, but my ideas did not prevail," said Harrison, the keyboards player and guitarist who has always been the Head with the lowest public profile.

Jerry Harrison, keyboardist and guitarist for Talking Heads, says the band is "officially in hibernation," but no one is resting. Harrison, 41, said he had hoped Talking Heads would put out an album this year, but "I didn't get my way." "We're not through as a band, but we're not doing anything this year," he said in the Aug. 6 issue of People magazine. The band's last album, "Naked," was released in 1988.

In his Jan. 18 article, "Nixon's Media Memo to New President," Howard Rosenberg missed the point of the TV Guide article by former President Richard Nixon. Television has changed. The average "piece" allotted to a presidential news conference within the news has shrunk in the past 20 years from 2 1/2 minutes to just over 42 seconds, including the introduction by the news correspondent. This MTV attitude toward the news--primarily due to ratings and the ever decreasing attention span of the American public--has altered the way important issues of our times are presented.

Mad About Rising Crime and the First Presbyterian Church of Sherman Oaks will kick off their "Thumbs Up, LAPD" bumper sticker campaign at a public meeting tonight. The stickers--with blue lettering and a hand with the thumb up--were the idea of church member Jerry Harrison, according to MARC spokesman Joe Sands. "It's to show the rank and file that we appreciate what they do," said Sands, adding that 250 stickers have already been sold.
