On Friday (Nov. 20), T.J. Simers picks Green Bay over Minnesota as this week's "upset special." On Sunday he says the Packers' chances are slim because they are playing their third road game in a row. I used to have a co-worker who would sit in his cubicle and argue with himself in different voices. I wonder if T.J. Simers is his pen name. RON RABE, Diamond Bar I have two words for Ryan Leaf: Todd Marinovich. TERRY BRANNON, Los Angeles

"Blood on the Dance Floor" is an apt title: Jackson is hemorrhaging, and a string of emergency surgeons--of the mixing board variety--try to stop the bleeding. But without any further collaboration from Jackson himself, such top remixers as Todd Terry and the Fugees' Wyclef Jean can't do much to substantially improve the eight songs from his 1995 "HIStory" album that form the bulk of this album.

SMALL FACES: Cypress Hill is a trio again, with Sen Dog rejoining B-Real and DJ Muggs on a new album that's being finished in L.A., with a release date still to be set.

The biggest beneficiary of Friday's Halloween downpour? Possibly London techno DJ Billy Nasty, who had the good fortune of being on the main stage during the sixth annual Monster Massive dance-music gathering when the rain started coming down hard around 10 p.m. With organizers scrambling to reconfigure the setup at the Sports Arena and move the outdoor stages into sheltered areas, Nasty found himself spinning before an Oakenfold-sized crowd that turned the floor of the Sports Arena into L.A.'

"Troilus and Cressida" is an ambitious undertaking for any theater company. Although Shakespeare's rendering of the Trojan War culminates in a lengthy and populous battle scene, ultimately it is a talky play in which wooing and winning, in war and love, are games of wit rather than of action. Between the sword and the tongue, the production of Rancho Santiago College's Professional Actors Conservatory Theatre Company is defeated.

E. Scott Shaffer's elaborate, dungeony set for Rancho Santiago College's "Macbeth" is bookended by two friezes, both depicting tormented souls emerging from some otherworld. The sculptures can be seen as foreshadowing for the dark magic that marks Shakespeare's intrigue, or as symbol for the monsters that soon will reside in the murderous Macbeth's mind after guilt begins its work. They also seem to promise that this staging may have expansive imagination and verve, but that's not the case.

To director Sheryl Donchey's credit, her treatment of "Guys and Dolls" at Rancho Santiago College leaves this classic in recognizable form. It's not that the Frank Loesser musical is shoddily done by the college's Professional Actors Conservatory. The stage is fixed up in a Cubist style that serves to excite the eye in a confetti swirl of color and silhouetted forms. This effectively captures the vibrancy of a crowded city street scene.

The so-called American melting pot, that increasingly discredited cliche, once held the sort of vigor that led many of the most notable playwrights of the 1930s to re-create the pot on the stage. From Elmer Rice to Clifford Odets and from Sidney Kingsley to Moss Hart, they celebrated its ethnic splendor, railed against its inequalities, placed its contradictions on exhibit and generally beckoned its glorious future.
