Critic's Notebook: The dramatist who used to regularly scorch the stage with complex stories has let his anti-P.C. rage blunt his work. What in the world has happened to David Mamet? The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Glengarry Glen Ross," a modern classic that can survive even the ham acting of Al Pacino at his Broadway goofiest, has become a wide-ranging controversialist, ever ready to tap dance on eggshells with military boots. Music producer Phil Spector was convicted of murdering actress Lana Clarkson at his Alhambra mansion.

Abraham Lincoln manuscript and artifact collector Louise Taper has put her Beverly Park estate on the market at $18 million. The two-story Colonial, built in 1988, was previously the personal residence of Beverly Park developer Brian Adler. Taper remodeled and enlarged the house to its current 13,500-square-foot size. The city view house has a grand entry foyer; a den with a bar; seven bedrooms, one of which is being used as a 16-seat theater; 10 bathrooms and staff quarters.

With reference to "Forget Jelly, George Is Jammin' " (by Patrick Pacheco, Nov. 20) and "It's a Public With a Punch" (by Laurie Winer, Nov. 27), I would like to correct a now-common misconception. While George C. Wolfe is indeed a writer and a director, he did not direct the stage production of his play "The Colored Museum" at New York's Public Theater in 1986. The director was L. Kenneth Richardson, then-artistic director of the Crossroads Theatre Company in New Jersey, where the play had its world premiere under Richardson's direction.
