Am I dreaming? U.S. military planes overtook an Egyptian plane in non-U.S. airspace, and forced the pilot to change course and land in a third country. We all, myself included, shouted, "Hooray!" Understandably, the Egyptian government, which has just negotiated the release by terrorists of a number of our citizens, is angry, and demands an apology. Under what circumstances would the United States tolerate the same kind of treatment of an American plane? An apology seems little enough to ask, now that we have what we want.

What does it say about a newspaper and Calendar editor when the color cover page and four more pages are devoted to the latest Rambo movie while an article on the birth of a brilliant social satirist ("Jello Biafra, Cultural Terrorist," by Bob Sipchen, Oct. 11), with enough entertainingly incisive quotes to out-gun the other 500 pages of The Times, is buried on Page 93, smack in the middle of the intellectual desert of 10 full-pages of Las Vegas, Reno-Tahoe and Arizona ads? I suppose that I should be thankful that you allowed us to discover the bones if we looked hard enough.

A group that watches over product safety said Monday that Sylvester Stallone's latest Rambo movie is full of mindless violence and should be banned. The British Safety Council, which has 30,000 members, said it had written to members of Parliament and local government councils seeking to ban "Rambo First Blood Part II" from local movie houses. It described the movie as "96 minutes of mindless violence."

Remember when you had to wait several years for your favorite movie, initially priced at $80 or $90, to drop to $30 or maybe even $25? Now you may only have to wait 18 months--and the price may be under $15. Paramount and HBO are leading the low-price charge with late summer releases in that price range. Beginning Sept. 16, HBO will market horror titles such as "Return of the Living Dead," "Howling II" and "Dawn of the Dead" for $14.99. Paramount's 15-title package, due Aug. 2, is much more impressive.

A real quarter eater, U.S. Gold's "Gold of the Aztecs" is a jump-and-shoot arcade-style game with little reward and no purpose. It's like a Rambo movie, but without the unbelievable characters or the implausible plot. "Gold" is just kill or be killed . . . again and again and again. A treasure map leads Bret Conrad (our hero?) in search of Aztec gold. He parachutes into the jungle armed with a pistol and a machete.
