Hank Williams (died 1953) emerges on video in 1990, dueting with son Hank Jr. on "There's a Tear in My Beer." Nat King Cole (died 1965), reappears in 1991, harmonizing "Unforgettable" with daughter Natalie. The sampled voice of Bob Marley (died 1980) turns up on a track of a 1991 album by his offspring, Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers. No doubt it's a symbolic way of cheating death and entertaining a warm fantasy. No doubt it's an expression of love.

Forgive Gunnar Nelson if his vision of his future sounds like the premise for a family sitcom. After all, he and his twin brother Matthew are the grandsons of family sitcom pioneers Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. "My goal is to have a house with two wings for our two separate families," he said, looking at his identical brother. "Casa de Nelson!"

When Matthew and Gunnar Nelson became teen-pop sensations in 1990, they were tracing the footsteps of their father, the original rock 'n' roll pop teen idol. But, pointedly, the twins were not taking their cues from Rick Nelson's music. "Nobody does Rick Nelson better than Rick Nelson," Gunnar said in a 1991 interview with The Times. "The man is dead; let him lie. If [people] want heritage, they go out and buy my dad's records."

Notre Dame's football team is 2-6. Michigan, USC and Florida State outscored them, 120-14. What will this get the Irish? A $200-billion television deal? A BCS bowl game guarantee? In fact, maybe the BCS should just crown the Fighting Irish national champions without even having them play in a bowl game. They are, after all, Notre Dame -- the most pampered sports program in history. Matthew Nelson North Hollywood Even though that team from South Bend has beaten two pretty good teams, Washington State and Pittsburgh, and because it has a dismal 2-6 record so far and will probably lose to a team they have beaten for 40 years (Navy)

I have been trying, for almost a month now, to buy a word processor. (More specifically, a personal computer with a word processing program.) I am willing to spend around $2,000--and I will--as soon as a computer salesperson lets me. I'm looking for someone who speaks English. Although their command of a foreign language (computerese) is certainly impressive, I wish computer salespeople would state things simply. "MSDOS256KDRAM20MBHARDDRIVE" sounds good, but how does it address my needs?

The Scene: The benefit world premiere of Warner Bros.' "JFK" Tuesday at the Mann Village Theater in Westwood. This might be the first big-budget agitprop movie ever released by a major studio. It's basically director Oliver Stone vs. the Warren Commission, the FBI, the CIA and military intelligence. "I think the Warren Commission report has more fiction in it than this movie does," said Stone. The Locale: A huge white tent was set on the second floor of a parking garage near the theater.
