I used to say teasingly that Mayor Bradley is everyone's favorite uncle but he's changing his image to that of Adolph: "Take the kids away from their parents . . . where they have no motivation." He did forget one thing, a can of non-toxic white paint for each child! MARK NICHOLS Beverly Hills

Things change and I'm glad. In 1929, at 13, I had a "job" as a carhop at a drug store in Kansas City. I was paid nothing, just worked for tips. But one Sunday, when taken on a trip by the family, I didn't show up on time, I was fired. Anyway, now a baseball player whose salary is somewhat more than a carhop's, doesn't show up for work. His wife had the keys to the car. And the boss says, "It could happen to anyone." Maybe he was waiting for a streetcar? There will be one along when the RTD reaches Agoura.

Mark Nichols found a sure-fire cure for his blues Sunday. Detroit's wide receiver, who hadn't caught a pass all season, grabbed two for touchdowns as the Lions beat Tampa Bay, 30-9, to keep the Buccaneers winless after four weeks of play. The Lions, rebounding from a 14-6 loss to Indianapolis last week, improved their record to 3-1. "I've been feeling pretty down," said Nichols, who was in for just three snaps during each of the Lions' two previous games.

Not to be flip about any premature death, but we should remember that Bart Giamatti was only a czar, not a deity as the Yankees' George Whinebummer tried to anoint him. MARK NICHOLS, Beverly Hills
