Where is the outrage? As I read last Monday's paper, I couldn't believe my eyes: two children dead by cars, one 3 years old ("Boy, 3, Falls Out Rolling Car, Is Crushed") and one 17 ("Man Held in Hit-and-Run Death of Walker," Oct. 1) and I asked myself: Where is the outrage? The Million Mom March wants to ban guns because kids die in accidents, so why not cars? Guns were designed for killing, no doubt, so when someone dies from gunshots it should not be a shocker. But cars are for getting from Point A to Point B, not for killing.

With a little help from talk-show host Rosie O'Donnell, Los Alamitos High School Assistant Principal Jerry Halpin is $32,000 richer. As a contestant on the ABC-TV show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," Halpin correctly answered that the Defense Department is in the Pentagon, that Napoleon is the name of a pastry and that the rock band Pearl Jam was named after a dish made by singer Eddie Vedder's great-grandmother.

Rosie O'Donnell, host of this weekend's Kids' Choice Awards on Nickelodeon, said she won't use the show as a forum for her antiwar views but will talk about peace. She hasn't scripted any remarks but said they might be "something along the lines" of a hope for peace in the world. The show airs at 8 p.m. Saturday. The Kids' Choice Awards, which feature favorites in movies, TV, sports and books as selected by children in online voting, attracted more than 5 million viewers aged 2 to 11 last year.

Rosie O'Donnell, don't bother to come on down! The former host of "The View's" bid to replace Bob Barker as the host of "The Price Is Right" is apparently over, according to a Monday posting on her website. After meeting with representatives for the show last week, O'Donnell reported that a requirement to move to Los Angeles proved to be the deal breaker. O'Donnell lives outside of New York City with her partner and their four children.

A cancer survivor burst into tears Wednesday when she testified that Rosie O'Donnell had suggested she was lying about goings-on at her now-defunct magazine and told her that liars get cancer. Cindy Spengler, who was head of marketing at Rosie magazine, said O'Donnell made the remark after a meeting to discuss the magazine's problems. Spengler said O'Donnell called and told her that her silence in the meeting was tantamount to lying.

Rosie O'Donnell and the publisher of her now-defunct magazine accused each other in court Thursday of destroying the publication by refusing to compromise on its content. The magazine's acrimonious 2002 demise was described in Supreme Court in Manhattan, where opening arguments were heard in a lawsuit that will test the reputations of both sides. Each said the other had broken contractual agreements.

"A queen is not afraid to fail," Oprah Winfrey once said. "Failure is another steppingstone to greatness. " Now the television queen may have a chance to prove the adage. Her Los Angeles-based Oprah Winfrey Network has been hobbled by missteps, ego clashes, a revolving door in the executive suite and, most important, low ratings. OWN's stumbles suggest, at the least, that even in celebrity-obsessed America, fame alone doesn't guarantee success. PHOTOS: 25 great "Oprah" moments The network was born 15 months ago with high hopes of becoming the television equivalent of Winfrey's O magazine.

Yikes! What demonic force has taken control of the Tonys, my favorite awards show (" 'Contact,' 'Copenhagen' Big Winners at Tonys," June 5)? These awards used to be in good taste, a real class act! Now we have to endure Rosie O'Donnell screeching the opening number, a shame with all the musical talent on Broadway. Silly me, I know TV is all about ratings and not good taste! And though I adore Nathan Lane, why did he constantly make snide remarks about so many of the actors presenting awards as well as Hillary Clinton, who may be an actress but wasn't at the ceremony?

Re "U have 2 c Rosie has to go," Opinion, April 3 Jonah Goldberg's column on Rosie O'Donnell is what we've come to expect. He is no longer capable of explaining his conservative values. Rather, his mission is to attempt to discredit anything liberal because his right-wing arguments have been thoroughly discredited. About all that's left is to select a fringe issue like O'Donnell's uninformed ranting on the 9/11 building collapse, pretend it's somehow connected to journalism through Barbara Walters' presence and march inexorably to his conclusion that it gets a pass from scrutiny because it represents left-wing thought.

It's true that no one knew Rosie O'Donnell had split from partner Kelli Carpenter until two years after the couple had already separated, but O'Donnell is doing anything but ducking the media. When she's not hosting her Sirius Satellite Radio show "Rosie Radio," O'Donnell has been raving about her new girlfriend (she told Oprah Winfrey last week that she went "Zoinks!" when she met the "absolutely gorgeous" Tracy Kachtick-Anders, a Texas-based artist and mother of six), hawking new projects (HBO premieres her documentary "A Family Is a Family Is a Family" tonight, and a new book, "The Sound of Hope," comes out in April)
