At around 3:30 a.m., Rob Perry's members-only party at a cavernous Hollywood soundstage was going full tilt. Bikini-clad go-go girls emerged from bathtubs onstage into a mist of soapy bubbles sprayed from a machine. Couples locked lips in a darkened sofa area. Skinny women on a densely packed dance floor hoisted their cocktails into the air and rocked their heads to Bon Jovi's 20-year-old hit, "You Give Love a Bad Name," without a shred of nostalgia.

Re "Gatsbies and the Wannabes," Column One, April 26 So Rob Perry likes to compare Xenii to Andy Warhol's Factory? Hilarious. Not only was the Factory not a club (it was Warhol's studio), but there was no door policy. Free entry for debutantes and drag queens, celebrities and hustlers -- that's what made the place what it was. Even making the comparison is embarrassing. Xenii is the kind of thing we have to live down when trying to convince people that there is more to Los Angeles than this kind of flapdoodle.

The thing about the "Gentleman Bandit" was his courtliness, his Cary Grant manners as he stole and stole and stole some more. Why, he would apologize as he tied people up, make them as comfortable as possible, return pictures of the grandkids that he found in wallets, call the front desk of hotels to tell them the guest in Room 319 could use some help getting untied. Once, a man had a heart attack in the midst of a robbery, so the "Gentleman Bandit" called the hospital and ordered an ambulance.

Police say a 17-year-old honors student was shot and killed by a plainclothes officer after trying to rob him, but a lawyer and the youth's mother called it part of a pattern of brutality against minorities. Edmund Perry Jr., a June graduate of prestigious Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, N.H., was shot Wednesday night by Officer Lee Van Houten after Perry and another youth tried to rob the officer, police said. Perry died Thursday morning.

For as long as there has been drag racing on the old Fairgrounds track at Pomona, there has been a Kalitta there. Connie Kalitta, racing's original "Bounty Hunter," chased Don "Big Daddy" Garlits across the finish line in the 1963 Winternationals when races were won in 8.26 seconds at 186.32 mph. Four years later, his one good eye focused on the blinking lights of the Christmas tree they used back then to start races, Kalitta drove his Ford dragster to victory in 7.17 seconds at 218.43 mph.

Grieving families around the nation began Friday to plan funerals for relatives they had long ago lost to the Heaven's Gate cult, which promised disciples they could evolve into extraterrestrials by severing all links to modern society and human desires.
