THE creators of "Ugly Betty" may say that, since he's only 12, the character of Justin is too young for them to explore his sexuality, but that's patently disingenuous ["Just the Way You Are," by Maria Elena Fernandez, Jan. 31]. Besides the fact that plenty of real 12-year-olds are exploring their sexuality, what they mean is that he's too young for them to treat him as an out gay character and get away with it on network television. So, to keep him on the show, they don't label him explicitly.

Jim Gaffigan gets offered Hot Pockets wherever he goes. You know, those frozen pastry thingies that can be thrown into the toaster oven or the microwave when the munchies hit? They're also a cornerstone of Gaffigan's comedy career along with his love of bacon, the joys of being lazy and being really, really pale. It's a legacy, however, that leaves Gaffigan with mixed feelings. "I don't want to be known as the 'Hot Pocket guy,' do I?" he said recently. "I never really imagined I would be this guy who talked about the mundane so much.

Irvin Gordon has put 2.9 million miles on his 1966 red Volvo, earning himself a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. He has crossed the country at least 45 times and rarely gets lost. Still, six years ago, he went out and bought himself a TomTom, not so much because he required navigational assistance but because he missed having someone to argue with. "I argue with her all the time. A lot of times I know better than she does what's the best route," boasts Gordon, 70, a retired science teacher from Long Island, N.Y., who started driving 100,000 miles a year after his divorce in 1996, just because he could.

You see a lot of misery in this job. Hang around long enough and every form of human travail crosses your desk. I've been around a long time, seen a lot of misery, but the letter from Mission Viejo still caught my eye: "Dear Mr. Parsons," it began, "This is the tale of the recently mandated '1.6-gallon-per-flush' toilets and how I and my husband have become stuck with them." They may have been stuck, but I was hooked. I read on.

THE "Worth It? Not Worth It?" (Oct. 8) article by Russ Parsons and Amy Scattergood about the kitchen equipment they consider a good value prompted more than 100 responses at latimes.com/food and in e-mail. Many readers took issue about whether toasters and mini food processors are indeed not worth it. -- OVERALL I agree with most of your selections. But I have had a mini Krups food processor for over 10 years and have used it probably 10 times more than my big processor.

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck isn't known for burning much of anything. But his retail products are gaining a fiery reputation. About 1,500 Wolfgang Puck Toaster Oven Toasters have been recalled by W.P. Appliances Inc. and the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The reason? The toaster part of the Toaster Oven Toaster can remain on after the toast pops up, causing the elements to overheat and then catch fire, commission spokesman Scott Wolfson said Monday. W.P.

The show didn't go on Saturday night at the Coach House concert hall after a midday fire destroyed a room, triggered sprinklers and left the venue humid and smoky for hours. Two Coach House employees and a tour manager for a visiting band were treated for smoke inhalation and minor burns, said Battalion Chief Mike McCoy of the Orange County Fire Authority. Damage to the San Juan Capistrano landmark was put at more than $80,000, mostly to a storage room, he said.

Toaster ovens use less energy than conventional ovens and don't heat up the kitchen as much as a full-size oven. They're handy for heating small amounts of food and take a minimum amount of counter space. These are some of the reasons toaster-oven-broilers have remained popular for 30-odd years--even in this age of the microwave oven. The models haven't changed a great deal through the years, but just how well do the multiple functions of these appliances actually perform? To find out, we borrowed four popular brands from the manufacturers for testing.

Is the toaster oven getting more work than the conventional big oven? If it belongs to a family like mine, definitely. Two teen-agers can't live without this little appliance for their pizza snacks. A seven-year old boy depends on it for his English muffin, which he splashes with peanut butter and jelly. Almost every single morning, the toaster oven starts getting warmed up for my husband's usual breakfast of a buttered French roll or bagel.
