Thanks for being such good sports by printing letter writer Erika J. Kaumeyer's musings about the remarkable physical resemblance between Vampira and King Charles II (Calendar Letters, Oct. 23). But why did you print Elvira's photo next to that of the unsinkable monarch? Long live the King! JEFF MAYERS Reseda It was a royal mistake.

While Elvis fans still try to prove he is alive, Calendar's readership continues to offer convincing evidence that King Charles II of Spain still lives (Calendar Letters, Oct. 23)!! ALEX H. DURON Cordova, Tenn.

It has occurred to me that Hilburn is probably the single most important writer Calendar has. After all, what difference does it make how absurd or outlandish his opinion may be. The fact is, the man gets a response (witness the Beatles Annex, June 7). Keep it up, Hilburn! Reading the responses to your articles is just possibly more exciting than the missing King Charles II dilemma a while back (Calendar Letters, Sept. 16, 1984 to Dec. 30, 1984). TERRIE SCHAEFER Carson

In an attempt to distract their attention from the priceless diamond, Wyndham said she lectured them on the family collection of crested silver.

I would much rather read letters about clever little dogs (Paolo the Wonderdog) and syphilitic kings (King Charles II) who look like other people. Therefore, as an acknowledged expert, I shall now close this subject for you: Some 6-year-olds and their parents are very smart. Some are not. LYNN CHRISTIE La Crescenta

We'll be there Just when you thought journalism couldn't sink any lower We'll be there Just when you thought you couldn't think any slower We'll be there To insult your intelligence, add to your woes To bring your IQ to unthinkable lows On par with Larry's, Curly's, or Moe's We'll be there, we'll be there, we'll be there And, now we reckon King Charles II will finally be put out to pasture ...
