Re "Abandoned to fanatics," Opinion, Oct. 9 Salman Rushdie and Sam Harris would have us believe that Muslims despise Ayaan Hirsi Ali because she is an advocate of free speech and conscience. No, many Muslims despise her because of her deliberately provocative comments and insulting attitude toward Islam and the prophet Muhammad. The article states that she was a refugee, granted asylum for fleeing a forced marriage, and calls her a "casualty of Islam."

The event: The 22nd annual “A Night at Sardi's,” which honored  members of “The Big Bang Theory's” cast, Glen Campbell and the Campbell family. A star-studded revue of Broadway and country tunes, the Wednesday affair benefited the Alzheimer's Assn. (Campbell, who suffers from the disease, did not attend.) The program : Sarah Rafferty of “Suits” and Ben Feldman of “Mad Men” welcomed the crowd. TV director-producer James Burrows introduced comedian Bob Newhart, who told both a riddle and a parrot joke (from what he called his collection of parrot jokes)
"Yeah, they cleaned up the neighborhood," announces Jojo, an ex-pimp now making his living in the "motion picture business." ("You should see the motion in my pictures.") "About time, too. Have to have it squeaky clean for Mickey Mouse." In "The Life," the musical that opened Saturday night at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre, Jojo (Sam Harris) is our suitably amoral guide to Times Square in the days before Disney moved in and the cleanup began.

Sam Harris had to laugh at the question, but his response was more than a little wry. So, does Ed McMahon still call? Harris, you might remember, in 1984 was the first instant celebrity to emerge from "Star Search," the schmaltzy but popular "amateur hour" TV show hosted by Ed McMahon. With his muscular, StairMaster singing that seemed to climb notes faster than you could count them, Harris won the big money and became, as he puts it, "the 'Star Search' poster boy."
They've gone and made "Grease" pretty. Count the Day-Glo colors. Admire the silhouettes of the actors and their props. Watch the play of lights and shadows as they swoop in for the finale of each number. From the ads, you might surmise that Rosie O'Donnell is the star. Think again. In this touring production at Orange County Performing Arts Center, the stars are offstage. We're talking John Arnone on sets and Howell Binkley on lights. We're also talking about Tommy Tune.
