In a time when states are ratifying gay marriage at a record pace and the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy is old news, when the Boy Scouts of America reverse a controversial policy and now accept gay scouts, "Call Me Kuchu," a documentary on Uganda's gay rights debate, hits like a series of shock waves. Filmmakers Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall use understatement in laying out the explosive realities of life in Uganda for the LGBT community, the so-called kuchus.

Carroll Lachnit of Orange Coast magazine came across a startling line in a news release about the Carole & Barry Kaye Museum of Miniatures on Wilshire Boulevard. It said the museum's scaled-down depictions include "the courtroom where O.J. Simpson was tried, with Kato the dog on the witness stand." Hmmm. Kato on the witness stand.

"I am a gay Ugandan man," said David Kato, speaking in 2009 at a U.N.-sponsored meeting on a proposed "anti-homosexuality bill" that could impose life imprisonment for gay sexual activity, or even the death penalty in some cases. It was a stunning statement in Uganda, which is why Maria Burnett, Human Rights Watch's senior Africa researcher, remembers it so clearly. "It wasn't something you hear in public, especially where government officials are present. " Kato gave an analysis of the bill ?

Though I don't want to prolong the Kato Kaelin dialogue, I am still shaking my head over Mark Christian's letter (April 30). What wrong has Kato done to provoke such vitriolic responses from readers? How about exploiting his indirect involvement in a brutal and horrible double murder to gain as much fame and fortune as quickly as possible? How about appearing on Comedy Central a day after he testified in that trial, very possibly perjuring himself? Kato may not be evil, but he appears to be a shallow actor wanna-be who sees Nicole's and Ron's deaths as the chance for him to gain the fame he couldn't earn legitimately.

Why on Earth would you choose to print such letters of bitterness (April 23)? Did it ever occur to you that Kato Kaelin might pick up your magazine and read these verbal assaults on his character? Those letters were juvenile, hurtful and not what I would characterize as "constructive criticism"! As a struggling rock singer, I know that one needs to jump on every opportunity in L.A. to achieve success in the industry. He is only doing just that and does not deserve to be slandered. Kato, if you're reading this, I think you're swell!

It hasn't been easy waiting for the O.J. Channel to start up again. What is it now, six weeks until the trial? Meanwhile, we're suffering painful withdrawal symptoms, relieved only by the occasional news bitlet, weary commentary or rehashing of things we already know. But we've found something else to help us get through these long, torturous days: Kato sightings. Yes, Brian (Kato) Kaelin, O.J.'s befuddled-looking, non-rent-paying McDonald's companion has not been keeping that low a profile.

I see (Simpson case witness) Brian (Kato) Kaelin as an extremely good and kind person caught in a soul-wrenching dilemma: Hot to tell the truth and still not hurt his friend. This "clown" stuns me with his character. CAROLINE JACOBS Los Angeles Re Kaelin: Being "the clown" isn't always an attention-getting ploy; sometimes it's a survival technique. PAT MAVAR San Pedro Kato Kaelin: The man who would be Zonker Harris. RANDY AMASIA Los Angeles Taking into account their total sequestration along with their banishment from the scene during so many of the more revealing exchanges in the courtroom, there must be few people in the world more poorly qualified to unravel the convolutions of the O.J. Simpson trial than the members of the jury.

The Emmy-nominated HBO series "Real Time With Bill Maher" wraps its second season Friday at 8 p.m., and though the show's producers won't confirm it, we have it on good authority that the election might be a topic of discussion. Maher's erudite and biting political observations have built him a career in writing, stand-up comedy, TV and movies, affording the famously single 48-year-old a Beverly Hills compound that he describes as more resort than residence.

In the annals of social interaction, Trivial Pursuit is a very big deal. Word and board games had existed before 1982, when the brain tickler in a box became widely available, and of course people had gathered together for an evening of conversation before then. But no board game created for adults had ever become such a phenomenal success, even among those who didn't play cards or chess and who thought children's games like Monopoly were insomnia cures.

Shizue Kato, 104, one of the first women elected to Japan's Parliament and the country's leading birth control advocate, died Saturday in Tokyo of causes associated with aging. Kato worked to improve the status of women in Japan and began promoting birth control after meeting Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in the United States in 1919. In 1998, Kato won the United Nations Population Award, which recognized her family planning work in developing countries.

Who'd have thought it? That out of the mouth of Geraldo Rivera would come wisdom and insight about the electile dysfunction gripping our nation. "This is still impeachment. This is still Whitewater," he said last week. For once, though, the man who brought us Al Capone's vault and stories of satanic ritual abuse didn't go far enough. He failed to say that it's not only Whitewater and impeachment, it's also Desert Storm, O.J.

Brian "Kato" Kaelin has settled a libel suit against the tabloid National Examiner over a headline that read: "Cops Think Kato Did It." Kaelin was seeking $15 million from Globe Communications, the parent company of the National Examiner. Kaelin's lawyer, Gary Bostwick, would not disclose the amount of the settlement, which he said was reached several weeks ago but was entered into court records Friday. The paper's story said police think Kaelin lied on the witness stand during the O.J.

Kato Kaelin's appearance on the April 16 cover of Calendar disturbed me greatly for two reasons: First, because by stoking Kaelin's celebrity, and thereby ignoring other worthy and legitimate artists, you have demonstrated an appalling shallowness. Second, because I read the whole article. CHRIS R. WESTPHAL Ojai It's one thing to write an article on his dance with Hollywood, but to put Kato on the cover? In the very same issue, you have a piece on the great film director Satyajit Ray. For God's sake, you'd think this man's body of work would put him ahead of Kato for a cover story.

The American Cinematheque's "Song of the Wandering Gambler: The Films of Tai Kato" rediscovers a major Japanese director who's unfamiliar even to many aficionados. This is not surprising, because back in the '60s when Kato (1916-1985) was hitting his stride as a samurai and yakuza (gangster film) director, his studio, Toei, was not interested in attracting an international audience. Watching a Kato picture is a pure pleasure.
