Aw, come on! "A Stranger Waits," which starred Suzanne Pleshette, was a mess of a movie. She's crying her eyes out over her deceased husband, and in the next scene, she's having a torrid love affair with the recently aquired young caretaker. A stupid movie about a stupid woman. What a waste of time! Phryne Barri Konat, Van Nuys

Chrysler's decision follows producer Aaron Spelling's vow last week to clean up "Nightingales" in cooperation with the American Nursing Assn. Spelling and series star Suzanne Pleshette have both expressed fears that NBC might ax the show to avoid controversy.

OPINION
December 28, 2008 | Joel Pett, Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.
This year saw showbiz lose Sydney Pollack, Paul Newman, Bettie Page, Cyd Charisse, Charlton Heston, Suzanne Pleshette, Harvey Korman, Van Johnson, Heath Ledger and the Bernies -- Brillstein and Mac -- among others. Cartoonists could be forgiven for waxing forlorn over news biz giants. Adam Zyglis signed off on hometown hero Tim Russert. Mike Keefe took a shot at talking radioheads as he lamented the loss of a true conservative. But in our hybrid haven of news and humor, comedy kings also rule.

For the ultimate homage to Alfred Hitchcock and his 1963 film "The Birds," try a peaceful weekend in the Victorian schoolhouse where (thanks to special effects) terrified children were dive-bombed by supernaturally vicious blackbirds and seagulls. Bodega Bay, Calif., entrepreneur Tom Taylor has converted the abandoned building into a bed-and-breakfast, called the School House Inn, and rooms go for $60 a night.
