Pardon me while I rant. . . . What is our world coming to? I read that due to the complaints of a few businesswomen, the beautiful paintings of women in various stages of undress have been removed from the walls of Newport Beach's Ritz restaurant. Apparently, said women found these paintings, which were far from pornographic, offensive and degrading, or words to that effect. The Ritz is a classy restaurant with ambience to spare, and as an art lover I (and, no doubt, thousands of other people)

Members of the Fashionables--a support group of Chapman University in Orange that raises funds for its proposed All-Faith's Chapel--gathered at the Ritz restaurant in Newport Beach on Saturday for their annual holiday brunch.

Big plans netted a bigger party Sunday at the South Coast Cancer League's "A Taste for Life" benefit at the Robert Mondavi Wine and Food Center in Costa Mesa. More than 670 guests paid $100 each to sample food from 25 local restaurants and choose from 170 domestic and imported wines. Attendance was nearly double last year's bash--this in a season of slim guest lists and paired-down proceeds. How did party planners do it? "I totally panicked," admitted Donna Blue, who chaired the event.

It turns out that Mother Goose has been hard at work. Once upon a time, goose dinner was a holiday favorite, trimmings and all. "Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man's hat," goes the old nursery rhyme. Perhaps the most famous roasted goose was served by the Cratchit family in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," complete with applesauce and mashed potatoes. But goose, a greasy, gamy bird, never quite caught on in America -- until recently.

Regarding the Ritz restaurant removing the nudes ("Nudes No Longer Dress Bar," March 8): I'm a regular at the Ritz and lunch with a group of women who love those nude paintings. They make us feel like we can eat as much as we like and still look good (thanks to the Rubenesque style!). Don't our opinions count as much as these so-called businesswomen? I say that any woman who can't close a deal because of a painting is not a real businesswoman. Let them eat at the Mariners Elementary School cafeteria with the little girls.
