Terry Mike Jeffrey and Julian Whitaker are exactly the type of obsessed Elvis Presley fans that the producers of "Elvis: An American Musical" are counting on. Jeffrey was 15 in 1969 when he talked his parents into giving him bus money to ride here from his home in Paducah, Ky., just to see Elvis in concert. The enterprising teen-ager maneuvered his way backstage, past the security guards, to actually shake hands with the King. Jeffrey, now 34, still proudly clings to a color photo of the moment.

Q: Dr. Julian Whitaker's Health and Healing newsletter is advertising "T-wave cleaning capsules" that take the place of laundry detergent. Do they work? A: No, according to Robert Park of the University of Maryland, a spokesman for the American Physical Society. The advertising claims that the capsules contain ceramic pebbles that cause water to dissociate, along with tourmaline that "enhances water's natural dirt dissolving ability" and magnets to intensify their activity.

For years now, I have enjoyed theater on both the Mainstage and Second Stage at South Coast Repertory. What a thrill to watch actors and actresses take risks. Without the special effects or easy gimmicks of movies, they try to touch me, knowing that I am not only viciously jaded but also sitting right there in the room. They often succeed. In "Holy Days" on the Second Stage, Rosie (Jeanne Paulsen) and Gant (Richard Doyle) fall sobbing into each other's arms over the death of their young son. I sob with them.

Health activists and local residents packed a hearing conducted by Rep. Elton Gallegly in Ventura on Friday to oppose new regulations on dietary supplements and vitamins. The Simi Valley Republican is the co-author of pending legislation to head off the new rules, which are scheduled to go into effect in July. Opponents of the regulations say they would restrict the availability of supplements and in some cases eliminate them from the marketplace.

There isn't a set of recordings more startling or enduring than the ones a then-unknown Elvis Presley made in 1954 for Sun Records. Wild and confident, with a force of personality that was pure because it had nothing to do with making an image and everything to do with just letting a fresh self leap into being for a free moment of expression, Elvis embodied and defined the alpha and omega of rock 'n' roll, right there in producer Sam Phillips' Memphis studio.

You probably didn't realize this, but Elvis Presley was central to every social revolution of his time from civil rights to the banana split. At least that is what the creators of "Elvis: A Musical Celebration" would have us believe. So let's forget all the pre-show puffery about their self-proclaimed intent "to put him in a context." What they have created, in fact, is a triumph of kitsch. Theatrically, this $3-million apotheosis of a rock star represents the ultimate in packaging.
