The "What Would Jesus Drive?" movement is telling us how sinful SUVs are (Commentary, Nov. 26). However, with 12 apostles to haul around, along with things like loaves and fishes and the tools and materials of the carpenter's trade, Jesus might well have gone for a really, really big SUV, had one been available.

A judge in Panama City, Fla., ruled that a former waitress can sue Hooters over allegations the restaurant promised her a new Toyota for winning a beer sales contest then gave her a toy Yoda Star Wars doll. Jodee Berry, 26, won the contest in May and believed she'd drive away in a new car. She was blindfolded, led to the restaurant parking lot and found herself in front of a toy Yoda. Berry quit a week later and filed a lawsuit against Gulf Coast Wings Inc.

The guests who turned out for the San Diego Civic Light Opera Assn.'s "Salute to COMBO Fashion Show" recently found a surprise. Stephen West (fresh from a critically acclaimed performance in the San Diego Opera's production of "Rigoletto") was on hand to entertain. West brought down the house with a lusty rendition of "If I Were a Rich Man" from "Fiddler on the Roof." Said co-artistic director Don Ward, "When we heard Steve was in town to do a concert, we snared him for the COMBO salute."

Murphy notified Variety Editor Peter Bart in writing of his decision to resign as a contributor, effective immediately.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Cole Porter's birth, and Starlight Musical Theatre is paying tribute to the late songwriter by staging one of his most popular musical comedies, "Kiss Me, Kate." The company should have let sleeping composers lie. This production, running at the Starlight Bowl through July 21, is a mess. "Kiss Me, Kate" is a clever musical, but it is a difficult one to mount because there are two plots to follow.

So Al Davis put Marcus Allen in his doghouse because Allen reported to camp late. Whatever happened to "Just win, baby"? Mr. Davis, you personally owe the citizens of Los Angeles a better team than you have delivered; we have paid you our tax dollars. Why don't you spare us the grief and take your sorry act back to Oakland, where they'll give you the proper respect? This is no slight on Raider players or coaches. I appreciate the job that you have tried to do. Unfortunately, your leader is a man who has sacrificed the game in favor of the almighty dollar.

While L.A. Music Center Opera unveiled its new co-production of Rossini's "Tancredi," Opera Pacific in not-far-away Costa Mesa trotted out the well-worn, well-used and, to some, beloved old Alfred Siercke production of the composer's "Il Barbiere di Siviglia"--mounted first in post-World War II Hamburg and, after its arrival in San Francisco in the early 1960s, familiar all over this continent. Just two Februaries ago, for instance, it returned to San Diego.

Opera Pacific added a bright new cast to its hand-me-down production of "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" on Sunday afternoon at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. Alfred Siercke's clever set was, of course, familiar. The celebrated three-tier doll house, originally designed for the exigencies of a shallow stage in post-War Hamburg, has been a San Francisco staple since 1963. San Diego got to see it in 1987, too.
