"The Joan Rivers Show," which saw its ratings jump more than 25% when it taped a week's worth of shows in Los Angeles last month, will return here on Monday to tape five weeks worth of shows. The 3-month-old show is exploring the possibility of having a permanent base in Southern California for three months of the year, seeking to be television's first bicoastal talk show.

Considering Michael Wilmington's many fine and sensitive observations about Western movies (Dec. 16) I'm surprised by his use--twice--of the term half-breed . Unlike cattle, dogs, and cats, we human beings aren't categorized into different breeds. To describe a mixed-race person as a half-breed is not only incorrect but demeaning, as it implies a sort of bestial-human union. Half-breed deserves to be dropped from usage like other racist terms have been. SUZANNE McKAY Glendale

ON and off screen, Mark Bamford and Suzanne Kay find themselves battling stereotypes about South Africa. Their new movie, "Cape of Good Hope," is not at all what might be expected from a film set in a country once bitterly divided by race: The comedy-drama follows the intertwined lives of several characters, including a woman who rescues dogs, a widowed veterinarian and a Muslim couple eager to have children.

Thank you for the complete and useful Vacation Survival Guide (June 24). I always save it for reference throughout the year. However, I noted that the railroad listing omitted the most useful rail site on the Web,, maintained by Germany's Deutsche Bahn railway. Click on "International Guests" at the top, then click on "Travelservice (Timetable)" at the left to access a form in English where you can enter any two cities in Europe, including Eastern Europe. The next screen will show all the departures, the type of train for each, arrival time and other information.
"It's business as usual here," Grant Tinker said Friday following the announced break-up of his partnership with the Gannett Co. in the production of TV shows under the GTG banner. The GTG series "USA Today on TV," based on the Gannett-owned newspaper, was canceled last month after endless criticism and ratings failure, and will end Jan. 7.

Your March 19 editorial, " 'Mini' Paths to Good Schools," comes down squarely on the side of merit pay for teachers. In doing so, you completely ignore the one absolute reason that merit pay is unfair: social promotion. Next year I will teach fourth grade at a school that is at the absolute bottom of all Academic Performance Index measures. Experience tells me that at least two-thirds of my class will have been socially promoted through every grade, eight to 10 students won't know the alphabet and some of them will never have done a single homework assignment, because they knew they would get passed on anyway.

In the commercial, a man in Toronto wins free tickets to a Canadian sporting event. He drives along urban avenues, smiling at his good fortune. Next he goes to a nightclub packed with the kind of party crowd that only inhabits beer ads. Finally, he's cheering alongside his countrymen in a Canadian arena. None of this, however, was shot anywhere near the land of moose and Mounties.
