I was quite amused to learn that Celebrity Connection had not even received honorable mention as the world's largest provider of celebrities to charity organizations ("Doin' It for Charity (and P.R. and Gifts"), Sept. 11). Unfortunately my friends in the industry didn't find the content of Isobel Silden's article quite as amusing. Silden's failure to properly research the piece makes it appear as though Rita Tateel accomplished a host of wonderful things in a vacuum or in the couple of months since she started her little home business, Celebrity Source.

Rita Tateel is a matchmaker Hollywood-style. Her company, the Celebrity Source, helps charity, sports and corporate events find celebrity guests. Tateel, 48, began the business 11 1/2 years ago. "We have a custom-designed computer program," Tateel explained about matching her clients with one of the 5,400 celebs on her roster. "For example, if we need to identify a golfer who's from the Midwest, a supporter of the American Cancer Society and is African American, we can do that."

IT'S LIKE A CIA CONVENTION, A 12-STEP PROGRAM and a revival meeting all in one room. Here in an airless, pie-shaped Holiday Inn suite overlooking the 405 Freeway, a capacity crowd has paid up to $59 a person for tonight's Learning Annex seminar: "Becoming a Celebrity Personal Assistant."

The demise of the hugely popular "Seinfeld" television show may be a blow to viewers, but it could be a boon to a new Irvine company that is selling "The Big Sein-off" T-shirts on the Internet. Orders "are coming in from around the world," said Wes Bledsoe, president of TEN97, which does online fund-raising for nonprofit organizations. "It's truly turning into a global event."

If nothing else, American troops in Kosovo are realistic about how low-profile their peace-keeping role is back home. That helps explain why the big guns weren't rolled out Wednesday when Hollywood officials announced a series of USO trips to the war-ravaged area for the year-end holiday season. Instead of the current crop of movie superstars, most of those recruited to entertain soldiers in the Balkans at Thanksgiving and Christmas are actors from television shows that the troops know and love.

Just off the trendy Melrose strip, on the western edge of Hollywood, is a refuge of tree-lined streets where neighbors greet each other by name and young couples start families and stick around into their golden years. Lately, it has also become a battlefront in a broader clash of conflicting imperatives: how to balance a government push to keep the aging and disabled out of institutions against community desires to protect the character and value of residential neighborhoods, particularly in a shaky housing market.

The festivities at this week's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach include a 10-lap pro/celebrity race to raise money for children's hospitals. It's a wonderful idea, tinged by one stark truth: Celebrity race drivers are celebrities, not race drivers. Acting skills and beauty are about as helpful on the racetrack as a dead agent.

Last week, celebrity activism seemed to have hit an all-time, "Saturday Night Live"-parody low when a news story broke that Paris Hilton had taken on the plight of binge-drinking elephants in India. "The elephants get drunk all the time. It is just so sad," she was quoted as saying to reporters in Tokyo. Turned out the story was a prank. Still, it fooled plenty of people -- including the Associated Press -- because it actually seemed plausible.
