As a commercial fisherman in his 20s, Joe Singer sometimes fished for sharks. Now, he's swimming with them. It's one of those improbable, catapulting career stories that seem to only happen in Hollywood, where one moment no one takes your call and the next moment, Denzel Washington is on line two. So, who is Joe Singer?

Regarding Joe Singer's letter about London ("London Lapses," Oct. 12): It hardly seems possible for a country of more than 55 million people to have lost its "moral core" between 1995 and 1997. Unpleasant restaurant experiences are exactly that, but let's not write off an entire nation's moral values because of personal bitterness. PETER O'BRIEN Glendale

As a confirmed Anglophile, I was deeply disappointed after a recent trip to London. The most pleasant thing about visiting this city used to be that you didn't have to remain on constant guard against swindlers, gougers and various mountebanks such as you might encounter in Rome, Cairo or even Paris. Alas, this has changed radically since my last visit there in 1995. This was most vividly demonstrated by my experience at a West End restaurant, where a cover charge was added to my bill along with an "optional" service charge, none of which were indicated on the menu.

IN DAYS OF AWE by Eric Goodman (Alfred A. Knopf : $20; 295 pp.). It's the pits for "Jewish Joe" Singer, major league New York baseball pitcher. He's fallen from national idol to bum, thrown out of baseball for failing to report a bribe attempt, deserted by his wife, reviled by the fans.

More than 60 hard-rock musicians lent their talents--some considerable, others not so--to benefit the Randy Rhoads Charitable Trust Fund at the Palace on Wednesday.

Whatever musical possibilities may have existed in the various combinations, too often it proved an exercise in stamina for the audience.

NEW YORK - L.A.-based designer Brian Lichtenberg presented his fall and winter 2014 men's and women's collection in the sub-basement of the Hudson Hotel here Sunday night. Inspiration: "There's a little BMX, motocross, Southern California dirt bike [influence] in there - but there's also some vintage clothing inspiration in there," the designer told us, fresh off a Hilton sister photo op. "And then it was a matter of taking the parodies into white trash elements like Marlboro and Bud Light and Yamaha.

This is turning into Eddie Murphy's creature feature summer, but if you had to pick between the actor playing an animal or simply talking to them, "Dr. Dolittle 2" is not the film to choose.
