LETTERS TO L.A. LIFE BOB SAGET: LIKE HIM, LOATHE HIM, LET HIM BE.
- Diane M. Gonzalez
I've heard that one letter to an editor is equivalent to the thoughts of 100 other readers. So it pleased me to answer the query of Eileen O'Neill's letter to L.A. Life about Bob Saget's lack of talent: That makes two of us, for starters, who really resent him.
Indeed, why can't someone tell us how he continues working in the entertainment business. Is he supposed to be funny, serious, dramatic - what? His talents as an entertainment personality are zero. Ms. O'Neill's puzzlement was (also shared) in our TV room at home. We want to know, who is this guy? One thought he might be an ex-sports announcer, but that's Fred Rogan he had in mind. Another put in that he made a bag of money with the Olsen girls in ``Full House'' and decided to produce a show of his own; this made sense. Someone else of the same ilk is Martin Short. Short's old trick is to drink a glass of water and have it dribble down his chin. Oh, that's funny everytime he does it - NOT.

Drawing the line
Susan Cashman ( L.A. Life, Oct. 21 ) seems to be part of the feel-good, ``I'm OK, you're OK'' crowd; people are people and whatever under the sun should be tolerated. It seems tolerance has been elevated to the highest virtue but Susan and Ann Landers would have to admit that there's a point at which they, too, would have to draw the line. And at that point, someone else would consider them intolerant. So where does Susan draw the line? How about incest or polygamy between consenting adults? What other perversions should be accepted? Perhaps Susan and Ann should give advice to God; they could ask God to be tolerant when he finds homosexuality an abomination. Would they be so bold as to call God ignorant and narrow-minded? Susan tries to point out that I haven't been taught tolerance; no, I haven't, if tolerance is to embrace the morals and values that God finds repugnant and contrary to his commandments. Yes, it's people like me who do draw the lines when it comes to immorality and perversion. One last comment - I don't think anyone needed to know your sexual orientation; I certainly didn't.
