I read with interest the Baltimore Sun article about the New York-based Journal News publishing an on-line interactive map detailing the names and addresses of licensed gun owners in two New York counties, with a third county - Putnam County - balking at a freedom of information request to release that information with respect to its residents ("Gun owners, paper battle over right to bare names," Jan. 4). What a great idea! Let the criminals know exactly where all the privately owned guns are located so that they know just where to go to steal them.

Burks, 58, was shot in the forehead Monday at his 1,000-acre hog farm outside the town of Monterey, not far from his pumpkin patch.The crime left just one name on the ballot in the Nov. 3 election, that of the Republican challenger, Byron (Low Tax)

Opening night in the first city of a national tour would be enough pressure for most actors. But at the press opening of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee last week at the Hippodrome Theatre, "so many things went wrong that it sort of felt that we were haunted," says Jennifer Simard, who found herself alone on stage winging it when the sound board crashed at the start of the show. Luckily, Simard, who plays the host of the bee, had a couple of things going for her. The musical includes audience interaction and improvisation (though hardly as much as Simard wound up doing that night)

"Life is random and unfair," the cast of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee sings in a number called "Pandemonium." Live theater also proved pretty random Wednesday at the Hippodrome Theatre, where Spelling Bee launched the subscription season as well as the show's national tour. But this musical - which began as an improvised sketch and includes audience interaction - is better equipped to handle pandemonium than most. The first glitch came when the production's sound board crashed at the start of the performance.

Monty Python's Spamalot, a madcap musical based on the 1975 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, came a step closer to finding the grail when it racked up a whopping 14 Tony Award nominations in New York yesterday. Capping one of the strongest seasons for new musicals in recent years, the Arthurian spoof will compete against two shows with 11 nominations each - Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, adapted from the 1988 movie about a couple of con men on the Riviera, and The Light in the Piazza, a musical with a score by Richard Rodgers' grandson, Adam Guettel, about an American mother and her mentally challenged grown daughter, who finds romance on an Italian vacation.

On Broadway, he's been the vampire count in Dracula, The Musical; Scar, the venomous lion in The Lion King; and Dr. Frank N. Furter, a Transylvanian transsexual in The Rocky Horror Show. But in the touring production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - which opens a one-week run at the Hippodrome tomorrow - you won't see actor Tom Hewitt decked out in a cape or an animal mask or seven-inch high heels. Instead, as consummate Scoundrels' con artist Lawrence Jameson, Hewitt gets to wear a suit. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Nov. 28-Dec.
