About "Feudin' and Fussin'," the Aug. 18 article about the disputes on the sets of past and present TV shows, I am really shocked. Whenever actors are on awards shows or talk shows, they praise their co-workers and talk about their "craft." They describe each other as "great talents" and "wonderful human beings." And now, horrors, I find out that all some actors seem to care about are hurt feelings, dressing room windows and, of all things, $. Think of me as that scruffy little newsboy pleading: "Say it ain't so, Larry Hagman, Valerie Harper and all you other great talents and wonderful human beings, say it ain't so."

CBS said that it will have its final broadcast with a two-hour episode May 3. Larry Hagman, who starred as the dastardly tycoon J.R.

Re "Bowl Party Mixes Fun, Fund-Raiser," Jan. 31. Larry Hagman, goofy hat and all, gets far too much press. From what I have read, there have been no problems with the radar towers that are used throughout the U.S, so the National Weather Service must have done its homework on the (possible) effects from them. Just because you have a lot of money does not make you right about these towers. They are much needed because the storms come off the Pacific and we need land-based readings to help predict their outcome--just ask the residents of Malibu, La Conchita and other flood-troubled areas.

Dastardly oil billionaire J. R. Ewing could have browbeaten "Dallas" officials into it, but actor Larry Hagman failed to persuade the Ventura County Planning Commission this week to let him build a 42-foot-tall observation tower on land he owns north of Ojai.

Growing up in the '80s in Malaysia, I looked forward to Thursday nights to watching"Dallas. " Rich American families plagued by sex scandals, murder, mayhem, family squabbles and manipulation fascinated me. The seedier the plot, the better. Don't get me started on "The Bold and the Beautiful. " "Dallas" was the biggest hit in my family and I watched religiously with my parents and two older sisters. (I can still hum the theme song). But all the nighttime dramas, including "Dynasty," "The Colbys," "Falcon Crest" and the "Dallas" spin-off "Knots Landing" had a fan base within my immediate and extended family alone.

Actor Larry Hagman was in critical condition Wednesday after receiving a liver transplant, but his surgeon gave the former "Dallas" star a good prognosis. After performing 15 hours of surgery, Dr. Leonard Makowka said that he discovered Hagman's cirrhosis was more advanced than thought, but that a cancerous tumor threatening his liver was halted by a special procedure in which doctors stopped blood flow to the area.

The cowboys sitting at the bar of the El Adobe restaurant on Monday evening hardly created a stir. It wasn't until later that Elias Meza, restaurant manager, realized that they weren't cowboys at all--but actors. And sitting inconspicuously among them was Larry Hagman, better known in some quarters as J.R. Ewing of the television show "Dallas"--in town to film an upcoming episode of the prime-time series .

On the few social occasions that I had a chin-wag with Larry Hagman, he talked not at all about his acting career, not much about the renown of his birthright -- a reference or two to his mother, Mary Martin -- and a great deal about renewable energy and living “off the grid.” Yep, the man whose TV career was founded on oil -- first thanks to that fetching genie living in an ancient oil lamp and then as a Texas petroleum tycoon -- was a...
