Bury the N-word and its ugly history I applaud Leonard Pitts Jr. for his poignant comment on the use of the N-word ("N-word should stay buried, no matter what the 'context,'" Commentary, Oct. 13). There are few words in the English language that cause me to cringe when I hear them uttered in public. But this one I despise, no matter what the context or setting. The word conjures up so many bitter decades and so many despicable memories of a time when the tint of a man's skin predetermined his position in life, social status, chance for potential employment, etc. Yet some members of the younger generations, black and white, speak this word devoid of knowledge of the far-reaching magnitude of this six-letter, serpentine-like monster.

Jerry Bruckheimer grew rich churning out fast-paced, thumping action films aimed at the teenage boys who rule the multiplex: Top Gun, The Rock, Con Air, Bad Boys. But the 59-year-old producer has spent much of the past five years wooing a much different crowd - the older and far more female-skewing audience that stays home. And now the results are shaking up prime-time TV. In an astonishing blitz, network executives this month picked up four of Bruckheimer's five pilots as new fall series, including NBC's Pentagon thriller E-Ring and CBS' legal drama Close to Home.

HOLLYWOOD -- Hollywood necrologists take note. (No, not necrophiliacs.)How the famous, near famous and infamous died has been both chronologically and alphabetically listed in a new reference book pTC titled "Final Curtain" from Citadel Press -- the same people who published "Final Exit," the best-selling how-to-commit-suicide manual, two years ago."There has never been a book like this one," the publishers claim on the outside of the softcover edition (for $16.95), which boasts the date and age at death of 4,000 movie, television and rock 'n' roll personalities -- everyone from silent screen comedian John Bunny (Bright's disease in 1915)

Hollywood, Calif. -- Tanned and fit, and looking a good decade younger than his 68 years, legendary TV producer Norman Lear is seated on this routinely bright California afternoon in his small corner office at Sunset-Gower Studios. The room is suprisingly unadorned. There are no photos from his "All in the Family," "Maude" or "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"; no Emmy statues; nothing that underscores the title bestowed on Lear last year of the most significant producer in the first 50 years of television.
