After viewing "Space," I have come to the conclusion that the title is incomplete. It should have been called "Bed-Space." What a crock! Tsk tsk. James E. Vale, La Verne

The first Queen Elizabeth was standing under an English oak tree when she learned that she had become queen. The second Elizabeth was high up in a mgumu tree in Kenya when she became queen, at the moment her father, King George VI, died in his sleep more than 7,000 miles away. That was 60 years ago Monday. Come June, when the London weather is as good as London weather gets and the tourists are massing, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, the second- longest-reigning monarch in British history and only the 40th in nearly 1,000 years, will officially celebrate her diamond jubilee.

Regarding Fred 62 [Overrated, March 6]: Tsk! Tsk! A major mistake in your column. I first visited Fred 62 as a mere tourist six years ago. Now, as a full-time resident here, I have visited countless times and have never been disappointed. It's one of L.A.'s true greats. Alan Ireland La Crescenta

I enjoyed Steve Hochman's recent review of the live Cure show until he erroneously referred to the band's song "Killing an Arab" as being inspired by the classic Camus book "The Outsider" ("Smith Occasionally Finds the Cure for Doom, Gloom," Aug. 12). Try "The Stranger," Mr. Literature. Tsk, tsk! SCOTT SCHALIN Los Angeles

Tsk tsk. Those letters of rage at your having printed a major story about that old softie, Sylvester Stallone (Calendar Letters, Sept. 21). Surely it can't have been sheer coincidence that the same issue of Calendar also provided an article about the Wunderkind of long ago, MGM's Irving Thalberg. It was the movies in microcosm: Thalberg to Stallone. From the sublime to the ridiculous. ALAN HARVEY Arleta

Re Mark Swed's "Don't Tsk-Tsk the Music Video Disc" (April 17): Opera on DVD is also a viable alternative to live performances. Live opera is priced to the stratosphere, with tickets approaching $200 per seat for each performance. Opera on DVD is usually around $30. Whenever one of the local opera companies presents an opera that I am not familiar with, I always buy the DVD first to decide whether to invest in the money into the live performance.

Tsk, tsk, Mr. Buchanan--subjugation of women to an inferior social level, denial of equal protection of and equality for lesbians and gays--minimally 10% of America's population--myopic censure of Los Angeles' Afro-American youth and bombardment of Hollywood all in the name of God and what is "right"? Sir, it is not the events in our lives, but our reactions to them. Perhaps you may want to consider that it is time to learn to unlearn; truth, from within and without, has nothing to do with value judgment or misperception.

I get it! Sloan's article on The Donald was the answer to last year's conundrum, "Are we having fun yet?" The response has to be yes, if fun means that Mr. and Mrs. Middle-Class American Taxpayer will pick up the pieces of Mr. Trump's failing empire. For years we stood around tsk-tsk-ing and tacitly allowed his empire to expand like a hot air balloon. Our banks were not accountable for loans whose only collateral was the paper they were written on. Our motto was, "If you can't see a problem, there ain't one."

It came as quite a shock to some people when Daily Variety's usually acerbic Will Tusher was honored with the Publicists Guild's Press Award. But the aftershocks of his acceptance speech at the guild's April 8 luncheon were even greater. According to accounts: Tusher thanked God that he was a journalist--because otherwise he'd be working at Rogers & Cowan. He told the crowd to take heart because "if you fail in everything else in life, you can always become a publicist."

BECAUSE the Orange County rich have more money than the rest of us, they also have bigger and newer houses, cars, diamonds and breasts, according to the new reality show "The Real Housewives of Orange County." The problem is what they don't have, namely, any interest in being perceived as melon-breasted, jewel-encrusted, SUV-driving, margarita-sipping mansionistas. And that means trouble in Coto de Caza.

Siegfried's a big fat slob. How do I know it's Siegfried? Easy. His name is plastered across his dirty white T-shirt. Shoveling down his grub, he's in the kitchen with an overwrought Mimi, the scheming dwarf who's peeling potatoes at the table and piling on the guilt.
