Recently, my Dad received the following note from one of my brothers, and it deeply touched him to read these words: "Pop, when I was a boy, you were the bravest, strongest man I knew. Never did I go anyplace with you that I was ashamed to say you were my dad. Never was I afraid of anything when I was with you. When I needed a hand to hold, yours was the one I held, and it never let me go. You taught me many me things, how to hunt and how to fish, how to use my hands. But most of all, you taught me how to be a man. Then one day in a blink of my eyes, you were old and frail, and it hurts my heart to see that.

I am flabbergasted and dismayed but mostly depressed by the editorial regarding 3- and 4-year-olds being removed from school because of disruptive behavior ("Pre-K suspensions make no sense," Nov. 12). I am distressed not by the actions of the school but that these children are assaulting not just other kids but their teachers! Imagine, these preschool children are assaulting their teachers! The editorial writer has the temerity to say that the behavior will not improve if they are sent home because they are the ones that need to be in school the most.

SCHOOL MAINTENANCE workers deserve credit for laboring over the weekend to remove spray-painted hate messages from two high schools in Howard County. Their sandblasting erased racist and anti-Semitic symbols from Mount Hebron High and Worthington Elementary before students arrived for class Monday morning with their young, impressionable eyes.But only the greatest optimist would believe that maintenance workers can put away their sandblasting equipment for good. Through hate or mindlessness -- or some of both -- miscreants appear determined to spread their primitive messages to the public, judging from a rash of obnoxious graffiti in the county recently.

A Baltimore-bound United Airlines flight was diverted and a local family removed from the plane after the parents complained about the content of an in-flight movie. The February incident resulted in the passengers being escorted off the flight by police at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, the family said, relaying the experience anonymously in a response to an article about air rage posted on The Atlantic Monthly's website . In a statement released to The Sun, United Airlines said Flight 683 from Denver to Baltimore was diverted to Chicago after the crew reported a disturbance involving a passenger.

HOLLYWOOD -- Most programs broadcast in prime time merit parental-guidance labels but few warrant as much parental concern as would a PG-13 movie, based on the distribution of categories under the new TV ratings system.The ratings system began Wednesday on the broadcast networks, appearing in the upper left-hand corner for 15 seconds when each program begins. The rating will be flashed a second time at the midway point during movies and hourlong dramas.A random analysis of the coming week of Jan. 12-18, based on network log listings, underscores that TV-PG (parental guidance)

Now that my son has turned 13, I'm thinking about writing a self-help book for parents of teen-agers. It would be a sensitive, insightful book that would explain the complex, emotionally charged relationship between the parent and the adolescent child. The title would be: "I'm a Jerk; You're a Jerk."The underlying philosophy of this book would be that, contrary to what you hear from the "experts," it's a bad idea for parents and teen-agers to attempt to communicate with each other, because thereUs always the risk that one of you will actually find out what the other one is thinking.

You're Phil Slyme and you're the president and chief operating officer of Sprocketscum Films Ltd., a low-end outfit operating from a warehouse off La Brea Avenue near Melrose. You specialize in that weird zone between soft and hard porn, between soft and hard violence. You're always walking the razor's edge between R and X.Walking it? Hell, man, that's where you live! In your time, Phil, you've killed more starlets than any other producer in Hollywood . . . and in more ways. There was the jackhammer in "Road Gang From Hell" and the dentist's drill "Oral Hygienists From Hell" . . .Anyway, you've got problems with the upcoming "Space Freaks."

OH MY GOD! 6.5 ON THE RICHTER SCALE!In fact, the only thing that keeps the movie at all watchable is a great shambling performance by Gerard Depardieu, who is so shaggy-lovable he deserves an Oscar for most distinguished performance in the least distinguished movie.

REFEREES make good calls and bad ones, because they're human. Anyone's free to complain about a bad call, but no one has the right to take his or her disagreements to the level of threats or assaults. When those things happen, sports league organizers ought to take swift and stiff action. So the decision to suspend the Hot Shots - a Crofton girls' soccer team - for a season made sense. According to a 16-year-old referee, the team's parents threatened her (even saying they'd come to her house)

* Should black children be taught to be angry in order to fight racism?* How can I help my child develop a strong black identity?* Fighting is a big problem among boys in our neighborhood over such insignificant issues as "He stepped on my shoes."
