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.

So our Chris Dufresne dumps "Dancing With the Stars' " Erin Andrews , and although I don't want to go into the sordid details, now I find out she's mine on the rebound if I want her. "Chris Dufresne suggested I reach out directly to you," writes PR executive Michelle Flores , no surprise when you consider the alternatives were Dwyre & Plaschke . From what Flores writes, Erin would love to talk to me Monday, so obviously Andrews...

After five months as an afternoon talk show host on Los Angeles radio station KLSX-FM (97.1), Kato Kaelin has kissed his career there goodbye. His agent, Raphael Berko, said Thursday that a "window of opportunity" had come up in television, film and a variety of charitable appearances and that Kaelin "decided to take it. . . . Being limited to radio just wasn't appropriate." Berko declined to say specifically what TV and movie offers America's most famous former guest house tenant has received.

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.

As Superior Court Judge Lance A. Ito and lead attorneys in the murder trial of O.J. Simpson interviewed jurors behind closed doors Wednesday, the rest of the legal teams sifted through tapes of Brian (Kato) Kaelin speaking to a book author and prepared for the next turn in the prosecution's case, the expected appearance of a much-maligned evidence collector.

Despite the sunglasses, it was easy to spot Brian (Kato) Kaelin as he sat outside facing the street at a Beverly Hills cafe. Maybe it was his trademark disheveled, shaggy blond hair. Or the motorists and pedestrians alike who screamed out: "Heeeyyyy Kay-Toe!" Sixteen months after O.J. Simpson went to McDonald's with Kato on the evening of the murders, I had dinner with the struggling actor who has been transformed into a person of such prominence that his first name is a household word.

Shortly before noon Tuesday, the verdict on O.J. Simpson seemed to have really sunk in, and the divide that is often talk radio was once more heard across Los Angeles. Here was a caller named Janet from South-Central Los Angeles on KJLH-FM (102.3)--the call letters standing for "Joy, Love and Happiness"--a mix of joy and righteousness in her voice at Simpson's acquittal. "The jury did the job," she said. Detective Mark Furhman was "a liar from Jump Street."

Brian (Kato) Kaelin is the embodiment of the saying "Be careful what you wish for--you might get it." He wished for stardom and got it. Even as a child he knew he was destined for more than life in the Wisconsin 'burbs. "I knew I had something inside that people had to see," he says. "I can't explain it--I can feel it, and it's happening now. . . . I accept what's going on, but to think of how it has happened, there's nothing I can do about it.

It seems that KLSX-FM has finally moved from rock to rock bottom ("KLSX (With Kato) Joins Talk Radio Wars Today," Calendar, Aug. 1). Can it be true that they have dismissed deejays Cynthia Fox, Bob Coburn and Jim Ladd, my all-time favorite deejay, and are replacing them with a talk format starring Kato Kaelin? Sadly, it appears so. My hope is that the former favorites with KLSX will be snapped up en mass by another station and, also, their listeners will switch to that station, and leave Howard Stern and Kaelin talking to themselves.

I am disturbed by the negative picture Paul Brownfield paints of Kato Kaelin by unfairly grouping him with Rick Rockwell, John Wayne Bobbitt, Monica Lewinsky and Joey Buttafuoco, all people who have achieved fame through their own deplorable acts ("Andy, did ya hear . . . about this one?," March 11). Even though the O.J. Simpson trial, which made Kaelin a household name, was based on a terrible act, Kaelin did not commit that act. And unlike the opportunists Brownfield lists who are denigrating comedy as an art form, Kaelin actually has talent.

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.

You may feel the need of a shower after reading this, but that probably won't stop you from reading it, either, just as it didn't stop me from writing it. And therein lies the tale. Tomorrow, Saturday, marks the passage of five years since the plaintive wailing of a dog, the curiously melting ice cream, the bloody glove dropped in flight like Cinderella's slipper. Five years since the murderous midnight that, as another columnist once remarked, hijacked our culture. From the remove of five years, the "O.J.

It has been 16 months since the close of the criminal case against O.J. Simpson--time enough for the players who helped shape it to sign TV talk show deals, embark upon nationwide book tours and, in some cases, mark a return to something approaching normalcy. Here's an update: Superior Court Judge Lance A. Ito The 46-year-old judge in the criminal trial is still based in the downtown Criminal Courts Building.

How in God's name did Sandy Sandfort snooker you into giving him a whole page for his trashy piece "How to Get a Direct Line to Talk Shows" (June 25)? It's at best the sort of thing one finds on a cutesy "Entertainment Tonight" feature. At worst, which this one is, it's unfunny, unwitty and an insult to your readers. Kato Kaelin and now this. Do you really think a lot of Rush Limbaugh's listeners read Calendar? (Do you really think a lot of his listeners know how to read?) There are many fine writers in this city with ideas worth the newsprint.

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.

Re "Thank You for Not Sharing" (Jan. 10): Those who "share" via pseudo biographies or talk programs do so to be congratulated and remunerated or to rub our collective noses in it. Fortunately, I can report that the trend is ebbing. I was pleased to see piled on a long table at the Mid-Wilshire-area Pic 'N' Save the following recent books: "The Whole Truth," by Kato Kaelin; "When You're From Brooklyn . . . ," by Larry King; "See, I Told You So," by Rush Limbaugh; "One More Mission," by Oliver North; "Private Parts," by Howard Stern; and "Daryl," by Daryl Strawberry.

When Ticketmaster announced it would publish a new magazine, LIVE, many people cynically speculated that the publication was a shameless publicity ploy to promote acts faithful to the Ticketmaster ticket-marketing vision. While the first issue unsurprisingly did not make any mention of Pearl Jam, we still believe that such fears of corporate meddling are overblown.
