Re: Lisa Bloomfield's letter on Steven Ehrlich's design of the Art Center at Orange Coast College (May 25): I have designed or participated in the design of about 300 projects in my career, primarily in Southern California. My projects insist on being functionally relevant because if they are not, I get creamed. I do restaurants. I do the kitchens and I do the interiors of many of them. Restaurants are organic whole deals. Guys like Ehrlich apparently don't have to answer to anybody but their aesthetic critics.

** 1/2 JOHN STEWART. "Punch the Big Guy." Cypress. On the album cover, the veteran California singer-songwriter glares disgustedly out at the world from a TV screen--an image that pretty much characterizes his viewpoint in the 10 songs here. He takes on most of the world's political and social ills, from the Middle East to the nuclear threat to disintegrating personal relationships, singing with a quaver that trembles with commitment.

John Lincoln Stewart, 90, the founding provost of John Muir College at UC San Diego, died Aug. 31 in Oakland after a long illness, the university announced. An English professor, Stewart came to UC San Diego from Dartmouth College in 1964, four years after the San Diego campus officially joined the UC system and the first year students enrolled in classes.

Folk bard John Stewart sharing a bill with blues jester David Bromberg is like a Charlton Heston epic followed by a Redd Foxx farce. But the pairing Thursday night at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano turned out to be complementary. Stewart, in his steadfast seriousness, and Bromberg, with his persistent jive, were both incomplete performers.

The notebook could have been John Stewart's slice of the O.J. Simpson drama. Instead, it has mired the Orange lawyer in his own. Newport Beach police said Friday that they are investigating whether Stewart misled them when he retrieved a notebook reportedly found in the stolen truck belonging to O.J. Simpson's girlfriend. The white, ruled notebook was among the items police impounded from Paula Barbieri's stolen Toyota truck on Jan. 31 after the arrest of William Wasz, 31, of North Hollywood.

During a visit to "The Howard Stern Show" Wednesday morning, comedian Jon Stewart confirmed that Stern's bosses at Infinity Broadcasting had approached him about taking over for the shock jock when he leaves his syndicated morning show for satellite radio. The host of "The Daily Show" said he wasn't interested because it didn't make sense having his first radio job be "replacing the preeminent radio personality of your generation."

It's Friday night at the drive-in. As the pale-skinned hero of the season's hot new martial-arts flick snaps the bones of the Asian archvillain, the Winnetka 6 erupts in honking horns and flashing headlights. The movie that has the big-wheeled pickups beeping is "Bloodsport." Advertised as the true story of an American who defeated all comers 13 years ago in a no-holds-barred international tournament of warriors, the movie opened last month at 800 U.S.

In 1967, the Monkees made "Daydream Believer" into a huge hit and John Stewart into a rich man. Stewart wrote the song, which soon became his signature tune. It sold 5 million copies and even inspired a popular remake by Anne Murray in 1980. Two decades after its original release, Stewart continues to appreciate its significance. "It has kept me alive," he said. And still performing. Although he hasn't had a hit since 1979's "Gold," he continues to tour much of the year.

John Stewart Service, one of the most celebrated of the "old China hands" in the U.S. Foreign Service whose careers were derailed or destroyed during the McCarthy era, died at an Oakland retirement home Wednesday. He was 89 and died of heart disease. Service had been a diplomat in China for 12 years when he predicted that a civil war would erupt and that Mao Tse-tung's Communist army would trounce the Nationalists led by Chiang Kai-shek.

Look at that mug. Now, here's a guy who looks as though he's seen some stuff. He's done some stuff, too, like having a musical track record that extends more than 30 years. John Stewart, folk singer extraordinaire, recorded 13 albums as a member of the Kingston Trio back in those silly '60s and has more than 20 albums of his own since then. Stewart will be bringing his extensive repertoire to the Bluebird Cafe in Santa Barbara on Friday night.

At his April performance at New York's Bottom Line, John Stewart joked, "I'm going on the Oprah Winfrey Show next week as one of those singers who won't go away." With his resonant voice, which can throb with present urgency or echo with regret for past losses, a devoted group of listeners doesn't want John Stewart to go away. For them--and new listeners are welcome--Stewart has a new album, "Punch the Big Guy."
