In Joey Green's hands, A.1. sauce is as likely to wind up on a furniture scratch as on a grilled steak. And Cool Whip? Forget the strawberry shortcake. Think shoe polish and sunburn balm. Green, 42, who's made something of a career out of finding offbeat uses for kitchen shelf staples, has written his fifth book on the subject, "Clean Your Clothes With Cheez Whiz" (Renaissance Books). And, no, that's not just a catchy title. He swears that you can, and he has.

Your May 16 editorial, "A Definite Maybe on Secession," ridiculed those who oppose San Fernando Valley secession from Los Angeles, yet support the Boland bill, which would remove the L.A. City Council's authority to veto a secession attempt. In 1776, when American colonialists voted whether or not to secede from Great Britain, would you have also supported King George's right to veto the secession attempt? JOEY GREEN Sherman Oaks Your forthright stand against secession, while admirable for its conviction, fails to inform us if you believe Valley residents should have an opportunity to resolve the issue for themselves at the ballot box. It seems to me that City Councilwoman Laura Chick, in her vote for the bill, is supporting just such a right.

It's time to stop making excuses about gun violence in schools so that our law-abiding students can learn in safety. I entirely agree with The Times' editorial ("Don't Fire Indiscriminately," July 24) that schools need to be safe havens from guns and that local school districts need to have some flexibility in administering gun-free school policies. The legislation I have introduced with Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) accomplishes both goals. Each day, an estimated 100,000 students bring guns to school.

Maybe 2011 is the year a clean start means returning to Grandma's scrubbing ways and getting down on hands knees with simple baking soda and vinegar. Or maybe it means staring down that supermarket aisle of cleaning products and the dizzying selection of powders and liquids that claim not only to clean but also to be healthy for people and the planet. Sustainable, Earth-friendly, green, renewable ? what do the words tell a shopper? "The last 24 months was a real sea change as large traditional brands are introducing greener or green versions of products," said Jeffrey Hollender, author of a new book "Planet Home" and former chief executive of the cleaning products company Seventh Generation.

Who would have thought? Last Christmas the stocking stuffer of choice was Joey Green's "Polish Your Furniture With Panty Hose." Not expecting sales on the order of Stephen King's, bookstores quickly sold out of the paperback guide to unintended uses for brand-name products. As Hanukkah and Christmas approached, people undertook frantic nationwide searches for the title, quests of the sort usually reserved for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and other hot toys.

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear . . . to the late 1930s, when everything you knew about the world came from a brown, cathedral-shaped radio--and your imagination. Come away to Woody Allen's heartfelt, evocative "Radio Days," a movie that draws you close to it like listeners around that glowing radio dial. (It opens today at selected theaters.
