BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Plenty of politicians are suddenly itching to overhaul the Internal Revenue Service. But Dan Quayle was for tax reform before tax reform was cool, as he is reminding audiences around the country these days.Over pork barbecue, blackberry cobbler and pitchers of iced tea, he tells the Birmingham Rotary Club about the modified flat tax he proposed in the 1980s. Simplicity, Efficiency, Lower rates and Fairness, it was called. SELF, for short."S-E-L-F," Quayle says, pronouncing each letter carefully.

Unlikely as it might sound, Eric Bogosian -- he of the angry, violent, profanity-strewn monologues -- has written a comedy of manners."Griller," which is making its East Coast debut at Center Stage under David Warren's direction, is Bogosian's take on morality, family and society in suburban America in the late 1990s.Compared to his monologues, "Griller," in which Bogosian does not appear, is surprisingly tame and ultimately affirmative. Bogosian, a counterculture performance artist and product of the anti-establishment late 1960s and early 1970s, has written a play promoting -- of all things -- family values.

During the 20th century, the core unit of society evolved, producing endless variations on the concept of family. Describe the "modern" family: Tradition is no longer necessarily what society dictates, but what individuals who define themselves as a family dictate.It was only a matter of time before changes within the family spilled over into the community and culture at large. As women marched off to work and civic activism, convenience at home became a necessity.Technology and communications advanced, creating goods and services that we needed -- and a market for everything that we didn't need.

If you want to talk about family values, how about making sure people have a job so they can afford to pay their bills and spend time with their families?"

NEW YORK - Kansas state Sen. Kay O'Connor, a self-described "old fashioned conservative lady," recently admitted that she "does not celebrate the enactment of the 19th Amendment in 1920" - a woman's right to vote. "We have a society that does tear families apart," said the Republican legislator, who originally entered the workplace to assist with her daughter's medical expenses. "I think the 19th Amendment, while it's not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don't approve of. The 19th Amendment is around because men weren't doing their jobs, and I think that's sad."

The writer of "Family values are in the eye of the beholder" (March 3) apparently does not know God or the Bible very well. Yes, God forgave Lot ( as well as many other sinners) just as he will forgive any gay or lesbian willing to repent and ask for forgiveness. But that has nothing to do with the fact that homosexuality is and always will be an abomination to Him. God created man and then woman as his companion. Period! Gail Householder, Marriottsville

I guess just about everybody who's raising a family nowadays is worried sick about whether their family's values are the right family values.I know I am.Of course, I've got a lot more to be worried about than most. For starters: I'm divorced, a career woman and a single-parent mother. Even worse, I am a mother who never met a ready-made Toys R Us Halloween costume she didn't like.Actually, that last bit is a confession. I haven't even revealed it to the other mothers in the Family Values Empowerment Workshop I'm taking over at the community college.
