Can you hear the violins? They're playing for those poor souls who had to play a game on Christmas Day. Imagine having to work 82 days a year for peanuts and then work Christmas Day? My heart bleeds Great Western Forum Blue for them. I think that we should all get 2 days off at Christmas, so that we may all spend some time with our families. Magic Johnson could have some of his mom's sweet potato pie. But no. The airports would be closed. Remember, everybody gets 2 days off!

Federal tax officials are investigating whether former President Ronald Reagan and his wife owe back taxes from their White House days, particularly on expensive gowns borrowed by the First Lady, it was reported today. Although neither the Internal Revenue Service nor the Reagans' lawyer would comment on the inquiry, the Washington Post said it examined documents indicating the tax agency has spent considerable time reviewing the couple's income tax records.

Vice President Al Gore Friday slammed Oliver North as a disgrace to the Marine Corps, and the Virginia Republican Senate candidate tried to fend off an unexpected attack from former First Lady Nancy Reagan. Nancy Reagan rocked North's Senate campaign by telling an audience in Manhattan Thursday that the former Marine, who served as an aide to her husband and was at the center of the Iran-Contra scandal, was a liar.

"In Xanadu did Kubla Khan / A stately pleasure dome decree." Ever since William Randolph Hearst built his own Xanadu at San Simeon, California has laid claim to some of the nation's most ostentatious expressions of wealth. From Lynn Atkinson's "House of the Golden Doorknobs" to David Geffen's self-described "act of grandiosity," Los Angeles' four great estates are all that remain of a time and a place when glamour and grandeur knew no limit. * Bellagio House, Bellagio Road, Bel-Air.

Ronald and Nancy Reagan for years have said that the blacklist brought them together; Judith Michaelson repeats the story that they met "when her name (Nancy Davis) appeared on a subversives list" and she asked for his help in correcting the error. According to documents in the Screen Actors Guild archives, examined by Anne Edwards for her book "Early Reagan," Nancy's blacklisting problems arose in January, 1953. But the Reagans married in March, 1952; thus their story of how they met is false.
OPINION

Except for the Gary Hart scandal, the 1988 presidential race has been boring. First, judging for the televised debate between the Democrat Party candidates, it is obvious that except for minor posturing, there is very little difference between them and they are all saying the same old stuff. Second, the Republican Party candidates aren't any better. I've found a solution, however. Let's draft Nancy Reagan for the Republican nomination. As we all know, the nation on the average is getting older and more female, so she's the perfect candidate.

Democratic Senate candidate Jim Webb has a television ad ready to air next week featuring praise from his late boss President Reagan -- and Nancy Reagan called on him to cancel it, saying the ad was "neither authorized nor appropriate." Webb was Reagan's Navy secretary before switching to the Democratic Party. A campaign spokesman in Richmond said the campaign felt the ad was proper.

I always appreciate The Times when it gives me something to smile about first thing in the morning. The July 16th paper, which informed me that Michael Reagan had taken it upon himself to give Neil Bush advice, was nifty! I think, however, that Neil Bush would have been better served by taking the advice of a different member of the Reagan family--Nancy . . . "Just say no"! LINDA MOSE Sherman Oaks

Mrs. Gorbachev, who also accompanied her husband to the last summit with Reagan in Geneva last November, will be the guest of Hermannsson's wife, Edda Gudmundsdottir. In Washington, White House spokesman Dale Petroskey said President Reagan's wife, Nancy, "has no plans to go" with him to Reykjavik.

Barone writes about our people's affection for Roosevelt and Reagan instead of writing about the true feeling these men had for the people through their actions while in office. Roosevelt, due to his physical handicap and his wife Eleanor's travels, wanted to understand the average person's need for help and security in their present and future lives. Ronald Reagan and Nancy, associating with the rich, do not understand the little man's plight. Our present White House residents are more interested in their physical appearances than how to improve the living and working of the average citizen.
