October 10, 1991 | DENNIS McLELLAN, Dennis McLellan is a Times staff writer who covers comedy regularly for O.C. Live!
He calls himself John Bizarre. But the comedian, who is headlining at the Laff Stop through Sunday, is not so much bizarre as, say, unusual. The tone is set as soon as he walks out on stage carrying what must be the world's largest boom box blaring a ZZ Top tune. "I came from New York and try to play music that will keep me from getting my butt kicked," he tells his audience. Then he presses a button and out comes . . . a Mozart piano concerto, to which he dances.

In "What Became of Tolerance in Islam?" (Commentary, Sept. 14) Khaled Abou El Fadl seems to be saying that Islam has been hijacked by terrorists and that they conceive of Allah as a modern Moloch that demands human sacrifice. If this is true, I would expect El Fadl to be the target of a fatwa soon. If Muslims hold a creed of hate, what are we, as tolerant people, to do? We now have 6 million Muslims in this country. Do we deport them, intern them or attempt to convert them? The solution to the problem posed by Muslims will require wisdom that I doubt President Bush can supply.

Tabloids belch smelly gossip and innuendo. Newscasts banner misery and mayhem. TV movies spew sex crimes and gory murders. Not to worry. The God of good television answers your prayers Sunday with "O Pioneers!," a lovely rendition of Willa Cather's reverential novel about the land and people of rural Nebraska near the turn of the century. What a bracing reprieve from rot.

In the weeks after former Commerce Secretary John Bryson's bizarre series of hit-and-run collisions in the San Gabriel Valley, authorities said his blood tests would be pivotal in deciding whether to file criminal charges. On Tuesday, Los Angeles County prosecutors revealed that Bryson tested positive for a small amount of Ambien, a popular sleep aid, after he was found alone and unconscious behind the wheel of his Lexus last month. But authorities concluded the accidents were caused by a seizure Bryson suffered and said he should not face criminal charges in connection with them.
