Re "Delgadillo trips up on fast track," June 24 Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan just doesn't get it when it comes to the illegal actions of City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo. Riordan says Delgadillo "gets an F-minus in damage control." Like most politicians, Riordan focuses on how to spin things after one's mistakes. What he doesn't understand is that it's not the damage control that is the problem, it's Delgadillo's complete disregard for the laws he should be enforcing. PEGGY JO ABRAHAM Santa Monica I can't help noticing, especially in Sunday's extensive coverage of Delgadillo, that nothing was mentioned about his strange relationship with the billboard companies.

Ronald Y. Butler soon marks his 15th anniversary as this county's public defender. He almost got the boot his first year. Butler's staff got a murder defendant to clam up before his office was appointed to represent the man. The supervisors clearly sided with Sheriff Brad Gates' angry complaint about it. So they set up a blue-ribbon commission of judges and lawyers to determine if Butler was simply too aggressive in defending the local indigent.

Just as the circus has its sideshows, so the Simpson trial has its sidebars. A transcript of one released Wednesday throws new light on a pair of this week's continuing dramas.

During a bench conference on the matter Tuesday, Superior Court Judge Lance A. Ito said to defense attorney Johnnie L. Cochran Jr.

Starting with jury selection tomorrow, Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Rodney S. Melville could become known from Santa Maria to Shanghai. His rulings in the Michael Jackson child-molestation case will be debated in saloons and salons.

The Bible has been reprocessed into films, audiotapes, comic books and Broadway musicals, with editions aimed at many specialized audiences. So why not try a format that mimics teens' pop-culture magazines? Behold the new Revolve, the New Testament disguised as a glossy magazine aimed at girls 12 to 17, in which Holy Writ is jumbled alongside innumerable sidebars, splashy headlines and color photos -- all minus the sexual titillation of Seventeen.

O.J. Simpson's lead attorney, Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., has told Superior Court Judge Lance A. Ito that the defense will rest its case by the first week in August, earlier than the most recent estimates, according to a transcript released Friday. Meanwhile, Simpson's legal team met to plan the final stages of its case. Among the experts the defense may call is a specialist on dairy products, who will conduct meltdown rate tests on Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

Think of one of those remodeling jobs from hell: The homeowners take their contractor's bid on that new kitchen, double his estimates on cost and time and figure they've got a budget they can live with. A year later, the house is in ruins, the kids are still living on fast food, the clients are in divorce court and the builder is suing everybody in sight. That's about the way O.J. Simpson's double murder trial is beginning to look to many observers. When opening statements began Jan.
