March 1, 1992 | "T he Power, the Glory, the Glitz," the Feb. 16 profile of Marianne Williamson by Times staff writer Terry Pristin, has produced a large response from readers, about equally divided between praise and criticism of the controversial lecturer. A sampling:
Is it any wonder that the most insecure individuals, celebrities, seek out any guru for self-help? A person who looks to a higher (fictional) source for his or her divine guidance is greatly flawed and lacking integrity. The only power is within ourselves, and no amount of spiritual rhetoric will save us from our inequities. BOB HERTS Encino

Tired of spending $200 million or more per mile on a subway? Shop at the Kmart of public transit, where a futuristic rail system can be had for a bargain-basement price of $2 million to $4 million per mile. So say the promoters of the CyberTran (for Cybernetic Transportation), who exhibited one of the rail cars Thursday at the Burbank offices of Calstart, the public-private consortium developing transportation technology. The event kicked off an effort to secure $20 million in public and private funds for construction of a 10-mile CyberTran demonstration track at an undetermined site in California.

I personally use several languages and find the "English-only" concept absurd ("Talk of the Town," April 18). I support a common language among America's diverse language groups; at the same time I oppose restrictions on my personal language use. English only is the propaganda term used by groups which oppose maintaining a shared, common language among our diverse ethnic groups. They say English only to imply that other languages will be eradicated and to deflect scrutiny of their agenda.

A potentially fatal flaw is cited in The Times' editorial (July 17), "Uniform Pool-Safety Code Needed to Protect Toddlers." A coalition of parents and health care providers claim " . . . that parents cannot count on monitoring their children's whereabouts to protect them from drowning." Every day children suffer accidents in kitchens, garages and medicine cabinets because they are not properly supervised. Government codes requiring homeowners to pay to install even more fencing around their swimming pools will just give more false security to the adult.

This man North is under the impression that he is the modern day equivalent of Audie Murphy. He wants us to believe that he was a pawn caught between the good (Administration) and the bad (Congress). North has it all wrong. The "honor" of his indictment lies with the United States judicial system, and the only thing he should feel blessed about is that he wasn't caught and indicted by a country without a system of presidential pardons.

Your "expert" Kenneth Turan makes a gross mistake in labeling "Beauty and the Beast" a film that "does very well without (actors)" ("Let the Games Begin," Jan. 12). What would he call Robby Benson, Paige O'Hara, Angela Lansbury, Jerry Orbach, David Ogden Stiers, Bradley Michael Pierce and the many others whose voices are part of this wonderful film? Giving voice to animated characters is a special talent. It requires a complete performance using only the voice. No facial expressions, eyes, hands or other body parts to convey emotion.

REAL ESTATE

CHAD EVERETT and his wife, Shelby Grant Everett, have put the Spanish-style, Chatsworth home they built in 1971 on the market for $2.85 million and are building a new residence for themselves in Chandler, Ariz. "I have a picture ('Heroes Stand Alone') coming out in June and (a pilot for) a series on ABC, so I'm not getting out of the business," the actor quickly noted about his move to Arizona. "Assuming the series goes, we'll be in Florida half the year, so it isn't necessary to live here."

Hey, it was only a coin toss. That little pregame ceremony that precedes every football game. Nothing to get stressed about. But, hey, this was the Angelus League. Greg Willig, St. Paul High School's quarterback, had only one thought at that moment in 1987: heads or tails. He was being introduced to the Bishop Amat captains when . . . WHAM-O . "This little guy from Bishop Amat hit me," said Willig, who will be a senior this fall at Rice. "There were no words, he just threw a punch.

The eerie wail of the siren spread through the San Clemente neighborhood shortly before midnight, triggering some residents' worst fear: There had been a disaster at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. Within seconds, the switchboard at the San Clemente City Hall dispatch center lit up as hundreds of panic-stricken residents called to inquire why the alarm had sounded. Others didn't wait to hear.

The high rating isn't for this pop wunderkind's songs; for all their palatability, they're so light it's a wonder those millions of records she's sold don't blow away with the first strong breeze. And it isn't for the four music videos here, though Gibson's directors have smartly kept things as sweet and simple as her self-penned tunes. What's most worthy is the way Atlantic has packaged the singer's first four MTV offerings.
