The public artist who planted cutouts of Clint Eastwood, Gene Autry and John Wayne along Highway 2 in the Glendale area has struck again. On Saturday, while my daughter played Little League baseball at the Glassell Park Rec Center, I noticed a row of giant white letters on the hill above the field. GLASSELLLAND Clearly, someone must have figured it was time for the eastside neighborhood to one-up Hollywood. But who could it be? This was quite an installation, with letters standing 10 feet high.

Whether you think of it as HP Pavilion, the Shark Tank, its current corporate name, SAP Center, or "the cage" as Kings Coach Darryl Sutter colorfully offered, one thing is evident: The cage has become just that for the Kings in the playoffs, living quarters getting a little tight and the team possessing a championship pedigree unable to get out of town with a win.

The world's first successful combination of sex selection and in-vitro fertilization has resulted in the birth of a healthy baby boy. The child, named Justin by his parents, was conceived outside his mother's womb, in a petri dish, through fertilization by his father's male sperm after separation of male and female sperm by a procedure developed in the late 1970s. Justin's mother had two teen-agers by conventional methods, after which she underwent tubal ligation surgery.

Annette Karlsson smiles proudly as she boasts about the athletic prowess of her 11-year-old son, Justin (he dashes tirelessly among his school's track, baseball, basketball, football and soccer practices). But tears well up when she talks about his history. "Justin's had it hard," Karlsson said. "He's come such a long way. He's had to overcome so much. He and his sister had to battle the abuse and abandonment. It's emotional, you know; the kids went through hell. " Justin and his 9-year-old sister, Briauna, were separated from their mother after a divorce six years ago. Karlsson was struggling with drug addiction at the time and had limited contact with her children.

Note to Arte Moreno: You're right, "L.A." sells better than "Anaheim" in front of Angels, but if you wanted an L.A. team you should have bought the Dodgers. It's like wanting a Coke but only being able to afford the generic cola. A. JUSTIN LUM Pasadena

"Sleep! I Want You to Sleep!" at Stages provides a rare opportunity to experience an obscure, seldom-produced work by Georges Feydeau, the master of the French boudoir farce. Written in 1897, Feydeau's bright, slight playlet parodies the fad of mesmerism, the rage in Paris at the time.

The request: Kick Justin Bieber out of the United States of America. The White House's response: No. In case you hadn't been paying close attention to Bieber's citizenship status lately -- and really, who is? -- someone launched a petition on the White House's website in January asking officials to deport the 20-year-old Canadian pop megastar after his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence and resisting arrest in Miami Beach. "We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked," read the plaintive prompt , which was mostly grammatical.

I'm happy for him,” Justin said after the Diamondbacks beat the Phillies, 4-2. “It's a big night for the family.” The brothers also hit their 99th homers on the same night (July 20)

THE creators of "Ugly Betty" may say that, since he's only 12, the character of Justin is too young for them to explore his sexuality, but that's patently disingenuous ["Just the Way You Are," by Maria Elena Fernandez, Jan. 31]. Besides the fact that plenty of real 12-year-olds are exploring their sexuality, what they mean is that he's too young for them to treat him as an out gay character and get away with it on network television. So, to keep him on the show, they don't label him explicitly.
