Southern California's most over-the-top party house, complete with a casino room and a two-story disco, is back on the market and it's looking more outrageous than ever. Owned by English glamour photographer Richard Franklin , the West Hollywood residence was designed as a home and photo studio but most recently has been leased out at $30,000 a month, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Even from the curb the house looks out of the ordinary. Three-foot-tall street numbers are perched atop the double-door entry.

A former tax protester who took on the Internal Revenue Service has won: He and his wife won't have to pay more than $150,000 in back taxes, penalties and interest for 1981, 1982 and 1983. At issue in his lawsuit was whether the IRS lost his tax returns--as he claimed--or whether he simply hadn't filed them, as the IRS alleged. To bolster his case, Richard A.

Welcome to Australia, land of the damaged, where claiming victimhood is the goal and there are no rules, just expectations. No heroes here, just schemers--in life, business, love and family. "Brilliant Lies," the oddly quiet film by Richard Franklin of Australian David Williamson's play about the quest for power, is an anti-summer movie. No special effects, no aliens, no action of any kind, just talk and more talk. The production has the modest, made-for-TV feel of a play with a soundtrack.

They were . . . The Tax Returns From Hell! And they're still a nightmare, 14 years after Richard A. Franklin decided to stop paying his taxes. Now that Franklin has taken the Internal Revenue Service to court, there's more than a cool $150,000 riding on them. If the 60-year-old former tax protester can prove that he had a change of heart in 1984 and filed returns for the previous six years, he might just get to keep all that money. The IRS, however, says he didn't file until 1988.

Since when is a grown man exposing himself to a crowd of innocent people considered funny? Not to mention winning a prize of $10,000 for doing it. This was shown on the Jan. 5 episode of "America's Funniest People" (ABC) when a student submitted a video of himself at his school's graduation ceremony opening his gown on stage and flashing the audience. Have I missed something when it comes to having a sense of humor? I don't think so. Do the producers of this show have any morals?

In his article (Editorial Pages, June 9), "A Watchdog Panel to Deal With Presidential Lying," Richard L. Franklin poses the questions: "Should a President lie if it is the national interest or security to do so?" and "What happens in a democracy when elected leaders lie?" While America's political system is clearly democratic, our philosophical system has been most generally called pragmatic. Pragmatism in the American sense, then, is probably best defined as the aborted attempt to wed Christianity to Machiavellianism.
