Re "Gene-Altered Catfish Raise Environmental, Legal Issues," Jan. 2: The genetic modification of animals is not environmentally safe or healthy. One cannot alter so rapidly what has developed over millions of years and expect no negative effects. There should definitely be federal regulation and oversight at the highest level to prevent harm to the environment and to consumers. And I disagree with the statement that fast-growing catfish "could help farmers feed more people for less money and boost efforts to end world hunger."

If the holiday table needs some help or your china cabinet reveals some blank spaces, a trip to the Mikasa outlet for its annual warehouse sale--through the end of the month--may be just the ticket. Figure anywhere from 15% to 70% off a huge selection of merchandise, including china sets, glassware and individual serving pieces. If you buy a discontinued pattern, think ahead and perhaps get two. At these prices it pays. Mikasa Warehouse Sale, 20642 S. Fordyce, Long Beach. (310) 537-2060.

When someone gave me a tip that there was a great discount dish store on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, I didn't zip over there right away. A bargain on Montana? Sure. Well, my cynicism was unwarranted. There is a great discount dish store on Montana and in the ritziest of neighborhoods. First off, the name is perfect . . . Doin' Dishes. When you walk in, the bare-bones decor screams out "bargains." Actually, there is a total lack of decor, which in itself is refreshing on Montana.

The Italian countryside, awash with bright color, is the inspiration for the latest collections by Los Angeles tabletop designer Laurie Gates. Tuscan Christmas, with topiary-like pine trees and wreaths adorned with pink ribbons and planted in terra-cotta pots, make for an unconventional interpretation of traditional holiday themes. The Judaica collection is embellished with traditional Jewish symbols floating against a background the color of the Mediterranean Sea.

The accent is on form, not fussiness. Simple shapes with a Far East flavor are the focus of tabletop designer Laurie Gates' two newest spring collections, Kyoto and Swirl. Gates, who is based in Los Angeles and also designs for Mikasa and Sur La Table, recently visited Japan, where he was inspired by the country's centuries-old temples and modern skyscrapers. These elements come into play in the Kyoto collection, with its hand-painted spirals, harlequins or graphic stripes.
