I met [writer] Richard Quinn ("A Screenplay in Search of a Better Ending," by James Ricci, Metropolis, May 12) in 1982. Considering what fate dealt him, he never ceased to amaze me with his sense of humor and curiosity. Perhaps his only real fault was his mostly unrelenting optimism in the face of the "Hollywood system."Michael D. Nye Los Angeles

A congenital bone disease kept Richard Quinn the size of a 10-year-old and took him from ambulatory to cane-dependent to wheelchair-bound. The disease, Ehrenfried's syndrome, did not, however, diminish his determination. Richard was determined about a number of things. He was determined to be independent and self-supporting, and determined to help a troubled boy, the son of people he knew. He was determined, too, to be a part of the movie business.

A militant Protestant was convicted Friday of murdering three Roman Catholic brothers in a gasoline-bomb attack on their home last year. But police said they will continue to seek evidence to convict others believed to have been involved in one of the most infamous attacks in Northern Ireland's recent history. Garfield Gilmour, a 24-year-old farm equipment salesman, was given three life sentences for his role in the July 1998 attack.

As one of the four people who read the Sunday Book Review section, I want Richard W. Quinn (Calendar Letters, May 5) to know that I too am ecstatic: that I can now find this intelligent and informative section readily without having to fish it out, upside down, from its encasement in 98 pages of hype 'n' tripe. On most Sundays the only redeeming features of this latter section are Feiffer and a hilarious last page wherein readers painstakingly delineate the minute differences between the rock groups like the Schnitzelbangers and the Innerear Drumsplitters as if it mattered a damn.

Such nonsense, holding the Hollywood Christmas Parade at night--when it is dark and freezing cold. Who is the idiot responsible for this? Everyone I know likes the parade, but they shiver with the cold watching it. And it is a crime to subject old people and children to standing or sitting for 2 hours in such shivering cold weather. Start the parade at noon. RICHARD W. QUINN Hollywood That's just the way it's always been, says a spokesman for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

The 58th Hollywood Christmas Parade will be held on Nov. 26 between 6 and 8 p.m. and Sammy Davis Jr. will be the grand marshal. Unfortunately, the parade will not be held during the daytime--when it is warm and sunny--but rather at night when it is dark and cold. Why? The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said it is always held at night because it always has been. I don't believe it can be right and wrong at the same time. It is wrong to hold the parade when thousands of families won't even come to Hollywood to see it with their children because crime is worse at night and it is cold.

A security threat that forced an airliner to return to Philadelphia was a hoax, officials said on Thursday. US Airways Flight 1267 was an hour en route to Dallas when authorities recalled the plane because of a report that a suspicious item containing liquid explosives had been placed on the airliner. The craft, carrying 74 passengers and crew members, was returned to Philadelphia where it was searched and found to be free of any explosive material, FBI Special Agent Frank Burton Jr. said in a telephone interview with the Los Angeles Times.
