From David Shaw's "Looking to the Stars for Our Political Wisdom" (March 16): "I don't think the media have been cheerleaders for the war.... " Oh!? Not, I suppose, if you put Harper's on equal footing with Fox News and CNN and ABC. I have come to expect such claims from articles on newspaper editorial pages written by Washington think tank hacks, but I was led to believe that Shaw was a tough, tell-it-like-it-is independent. He rakes over celebrities for using their megaphones to voice opinions against the war, as he disparages their credentials.

THEY SAY OUR EYES are the window to our souls. But what about our hard drives? They're the closest thing to a diary most of us will ever hope to keep, religiously updated with our private correspondence, our work and our fantasies. Yet we're anything but intimate with the men and women tasked with keeping them healthy. Instead, our relationship with IT people is more like that of two armies staring at each other across a minefield. The most dangerous anti-personnel issue of all is security.

Group therapy, health clubs and the Polo Lounge--once networking hot spots--are now strictly passe. These days, heavy-hitters take a power . . . facial. Step into Nance Mitchell's private, by-appointment-only skin-care parlor in Beverly Hills, oh nonbelievers, and catch some serious business-card swapping. Some clients, such as filmmakers Matia Karrell and Tim Healy, schedule side-by-side facials, instead of power lunches, to talk shop.

When the Earth moved and more than 40,000 Iranians died in Bam, on the other side of the world, the rumblings quickly reached Orange County. It'd be fair to say that life for Hasan Nouri and Sudabeh Shoja hasn't been the same since. On the surface, both live normal lives. Nouri owns an environmental engineering firm in Laguna Hills and Shoja is construction manager for the city of Huntington Beach.

Great conflict often produces great art. Intimations of mortality evoking intimations of morality, and all that stuff. Regard: "The Aeneid." "Troilus and Criseyde." "Man's Fate." "V Letter and Other Poems." "Francis the Talking Mule Joins the Navy." To this canon now welcome "Saudi Marines Lament," provided by Mark Billing, 75, a retired Marine captain living in Vista. Billing says he's merely the vessel, not the author.

AH, THE POWER OF the media. On 4 a.m., Sept. 30, 1985, fire ravaged the office of Margie Lehrman, Washington-based producer of NBC's "Today" show. Her greatest loss was her Rolodex file, assembled over seven years, containing 1,800 names and phone numbers of capital movers and shakers. By dawn's early light, Lehrman and her staff scrounged around for salvageable cards.

No matter what type of business you're in, people are important to your success. You need to know as much as possible about your customers, clients, prospects, suppliers, employees and even competitors. Keeping track of people is getting harder. There was a time when all you needed were phone numbers and addresses. These days people also have fax numbers, pagers, cell phones, Web sites and e-mail addresses, not to mention remote and home offices.

Karen Wilkening, who became known as the "Rolodex Madam" after investigators seized a client list from her escort service five years ago, cannot have her card file back, a judge ruled Monday. "We don't give robbers back their guns," Deputy Dist. Atty. Dick Lewis said. "We don't give burglars back their tools. We don't give panderers back their client list." Wilkening, 45, said she wanted the 500-name list as a souvenir of her "adventures" and to ensure that the names are kept private.

Imagine the choreographic equivalent of a multi-chapter Chinese restaurant menu. What you've got isn't just a meal, it's a performing arts pig-out. It's also a fair approximation of Los Angeles' premier festival of Southland dance, a.k.a. "Dance Kaleidoscope." There are smaller festivals here, including "Dance Roots," "Prime Moves" and Highways' annual dance showcase. But there's no terpsichorean event quite like this one.

Inventions are born in the strangest places. Avram Grossman conceived his brainchild while driving his car. He fumbled with a pile of business cards in his briefcase and spilled them all over the floor. "I almost crashed my car," he recalled. "I thought: 'There's got to be a way of keeping all these cards together electronically on a computer.' " After seven years, that idea is finally ready to meet the world.
