Is there a specifically "German" way of seeing? Did the enormity of the horrors inflicted under the Third Reich cause contemporary German photographers to back away from involvement with their own history? Jonathan Green, director of the California Museum of Photography at UC Riverside, explored these provocative questions during a talk last week at the Newport Harbor Art Museum, using the Newport Harbor's recent exhibition of Jochen Gerz's photography as a fulcrum.

HOUSTON - A federal judge in Houston on Monday stayed the execution of a Texas man and granted him a competency hearing days before he was to be put to death for the abduction, rape and strangulation of a 12-year-old girl. Soon after the ruling, the Texas Attorney General's Office filed a notice of appeal with the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. A spokesman for the attorney general declined to comment. Christina Neal was snatched as she walked home on June 21, 2000, in Montgomery County, about 60 miles north of Houston, according to the attorney general's summary of the case . Investigators became suspicious of a neighbor, Jonathan Green, after they learned he had been burning trash soon after the girl's disappearance.

I was relieved to hear that both the Navy and the Marines have banned sales of "As Nasty as They Wanna Be." I'm sure their reason for the ban was not censorship but rather to protect their tender recruits from hearing the foul language and sexually explicit material contained on this album. After all, when a sailor comes into port, illicit sex is the furthest thing from his mind. And any drill instructor can tell you how easily a Marine is offended by foul language. KEN CHASE Hawthorne

The Acme Comedy Players achieve a consistent level of inspired silliness in "Acme Snack Cakes," the group's first all-new mainstage show at its stylish new facility on La Brea Avenue. The evening's 20-odd original comedy sketches range from off-the-wall farce to more restrained, character-driven playlets. Occasionally, the humor goes over the top and performers wax so strident that one suspects they must have gotten wind of a "Saturday Night Live" scout lurking in the audience.

Magnolia Boulevard in North Hollywood has been touted as "the next Melrose" in a promotional campaign that has raised the eyebrows of some of the neighbors. But with the arrival of the Tujunga Group in "Some Assembly Required," at the Acme Comedy Theatre near the heart of the "next Melrose," that label suddenly seems less ridiculous. For every Melrose needs its Groundlings, and this "next Melrose" has found its Groundlings look-alikes in the Tujunga Group.

If you want to dial up some laughs, try "10-10-32ACME" at the Acme Comedy Theatre. You'll find some kind reminders of what not to do in case of an earthquake and other good advice. Saturday night's show went on despite the absence of one principal cast member, yet the hastily revised bill still managed to garner laughs. Jamie Kaler's totally silly musical ditty is a mildly politically incorrect skit about the Irish Republican Navy, whose main objective is finding a tall glass of Guinness.

Houseful of Honkeys is a relatively new comedy group on the block. In "You Bet Your Honkey," an evening of improv at the Acme Comedy Theatre, the Honkeys carve a distinctive niche in the glutted local comedy scene. Like most improv teams, the Honkeys concoct their scenes based on set exercises and suggestions from the audience. And, like most improv teams, they sometimes fall flat.

Maybe it's the brain-dulling heat wave. Maybe it's the brain-drain of talent as members leap onto the small screen and out of the brainstorming crew. Whatever the cause, "Acme Senseless" at the Acme Comedy Theatre will only amuse the overly genial or those kindhearted souls who can't hurt anyone's feelings.

An enraged crowd outside a courthouse in Liverpool tried Monday to attack two 10-year-old boys accused in the brutal killing of 2-year-old James Bulger--a crime that has stunned and outraged Britain. Six persons were arrested when members of the crowd of 300 screamed profanities and rushed two police vans taking the boys back to a detention center after the youngsters appeared in court.
