While most of the world spent this time last year going crazy celebrating a new millennium, Dick Marston was trying to tell them they were just nuts. Last New Year's Eve didn't signal the end of a 1,000-year cycle but simply the turn of the cosmic odometer to 2000, the Glendale resident argues on his Media Millennium Mischief Web site.

Re "The myth of men in decline," Opinion, Oct. 7 Cherry-picked statistics can't substantiate the closing of the gender gap. That's because historically prevalent patriarchal social structures have enabled men to relentlessly stack the deck against women. Not surprisingly, male-dominated societies have invariably assigned the male gender to their religions' notions of God. Women consequently have remained at a fundamental disadvantage through milleniums. Whether many of this country's religious adherents will come to worship a Heavenly Mother anytime soon appears doubtful.

Oh, how we snickered when we learned that most of the nation's computers would think it was 1900 when their internal Dayrunners hit the end of 1999. Red-faced IBM felt compelled to issue a proclamation that henceforth all its products would be "year 2000-compliant." Silly software nerds! They may be zillionaires, but we always knew they were too impractical to deal with reality.

They call Eddie Palmieri "the madman of Latin music," "the Miles Davis and James Brown of the genre" and "the Latin Thelonious Monk." Strong language. But not as over the top as it might seem for a virtuoso pianist-composer-bandleader and five-time Grammy Award winner who has been on a personal crusade for years to bring Latin jazz to the prominent position he feels it deserves. And he is neither fainthearted nor taciturn when he makes predictions about its future.

Needed: Quasimodo. Or anyone with stamina and a good sense of rhythm. Britain wants to ring in the millennium with a national peal of bells on Jan. 1, 2000. The call is going out for 10,000 volunteers to ring the country's 1,200 unused sets of chimes, most of them in churches belonging to the state Church of England. Some have been silent for a century.

Eugenics is as close to a taboo as one can find in science today. Find someone who calls himself a eugenicist and you're likely to have found someone most people would call a kook. At the same time, there are plenty of geneticists, embryologists, fertility consultants, reproductive endocrinologists and genetic counselors. The federally funded Human Genome Project is methodically cataloging every nucleotide in every gene in our bodies. In vitro fertilization is a commonplace.
