Lorimar said this week that it will make no more changes in its controversial "Midnight Caller" episode focusing on AIDS. But AIDS organizations say the NBC show, which airs Dec. 13, still sends out a damaging message. At a press conference in San Francisco Thursday, Pat Christen, director of public policy for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, said the "producers failed to address our most significant concerns and objections about the script."

After a week of triumph and tragedy, 670 cyclists rode into Los Angeles on Sunday, ending a 600-mile trek to raise money for HIV and AIDS services and educational programs. The inaugural AIDS/LifeCycle was born last fall out of a falling-out between two nonprofit agencies and the promoter of the California AIDS Ride, Los Angeles-based Pallotta TeamWorks.

San Francisco should urgently consider providing sterile syringes to drug addicts to slow the spread of AIDS, representatives of four needle-exchange programs from throughout the country told a press conference. With 15% of the city's addicts already infected with the AIDS-causing human immunodeficiency virus, "time is running out," warned Pat Christen, director of government affairs of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

A Los Angeles judge on Monday waved the green flag allowing two competing San Francisco-to-Los Angeles bicycle rides to raise money for AIDS charities in May and June. The action was greeted with jubilation by the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, which may now proceed with their own ride, AIDS/LifeCycle.

An estimated 15,000 people took part in a 10-kilometer AIDS Walk through Golden Gate Park, setting a record for participation, organizers of the event said. The walkers, including children, had money pledges from 138,500 sponsors, said Craig Miller, spokesman for the sixth-annual event. "This year we raised $2.5 million, surpassing the record $2.2 million raised last year," he said. A similar walk is scheduled for Los Angeles on Sept. 20.

The Times has missed an exiting story about people raising millions of dollars to help other people here in Los Angeles. Even Mayor Richard Riordan knows of the California AIDS Ride; he has participated in the ride for the past two years by riding the last day of a weeklong bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The Times had a photo (May 21) of sleeping people, referring to the California AIDS Ride event. But, who is Di Barker and why is she so tired? The answer is not merely that she was a rider in this event.

Just weeks after passing a law to encourage film and television production within city limits, San Francisco officials face the delicate task of defusing a conflict between producers of a new NBC series and local activists protesting the show's portrayal of the AIDS crisis. At issue is an episode of the hourlong weekly series, "Midnight Caller," in which a bisexual man knowingly spreads the AIDS virus and is then killed by one of his victims.

On my first day as a medical reporter, I pitched a story about AIDS. This was March 1983, 21 months after federal officials reported that five gay men in Los Angeles had developed a rare pneumonia, the first glimpse of the emerging epidemic. "How many people have it?" my editor asked. "About 1,100 nationally." She paused. "Is that all? I don't know. . . ." "The numbers are going up," I offered. "OK," she said, without interest. "But keep it short."

At 9 Saturday morning, 2,000 people formed a quarter-mile line outside the Fashion Center of San Francisco. All of them were on a mission to shop. Pauline Berry, her 5-week-old son in a Snugli, had arrived at 7:30, along with her twin sister, Kate Walton, and two pals, Kathy Kastler and Julie Mozena. "It's all for a good cause," said Kastler. "We're here with big wallets and big hearts." And plenty of plastic.

This city's pioneering system of compassionate, cost-effective AIDS care is being overwhelmed by an unexpected surge in new cases, longer-living patients, dwindling charitable contributions and burnout among volunteers and staff. The "San Francisco model," which harnessed the altruism of thousands of volunteers to minimize the hospital stays of patients, has been widely emulated, and city officials believe its woes portend trouble elsewhere. "I'm afraid we are showing the rest of the country where they are headed," said Dr. Tom Peters, San Francisco's associate health director.

Kelly West is about to find out that she has just slept with a man who is infected with the AIDS virus. "He bragged about cruising the leather bars in the Castro," West says, "but . . . but I thought he was only kidding." West is a TV character dreamed up by the producers of NBC's "Midnight Caller." But, in this case, critics of the show argue, the producers let their imaginations stray too far afield.
