LOni gives us less
REAST FANS were stunned this week to learn that Loni Anderson,
the Nerf-brained blonde on TV's WKRP program had hers reduced. The
surgery was discussed on one of those fine afternoon talk shows, and leaked
to your ever-controversial Peoplemania column through the New York Post,
guardian of such truths. Anderson first noticed that it was Dairy City when
her young daughter began getting distraught over the idea of growing up like
mommy. After that, the sweater-girl emeritus started to notice how people
were not talking to her face, so she consulted a specialist. The inches were
removed, and now Anderson is just as svelte as dammit. How about that?

HERE, students, is the latest entry in the presidential sweepstakes: This
elderly woman has been struggling to get on the ballot ever since 1968, and is
one of more than 150 people who have indicated-they plan to enter the New
Hampshire kickoff primary next spring. "I'll win," boasts the woman, who
calls herself Princess Running Water. Discussions of water, running or
otherwise, are considered bad form in the Kennedy camp.
Aotes from all over
* ANDROGYNOUS little man-child Lief Garret has found himself
u some very adult trouble. The 17-year-old singer-actor who absolutely
deivastates pre-pubescent women has been charged with drunk driving in a
Areekend auto crash that destroyed his sports car and smashed a friend into a
serious condition. Garret escaped with only minor injuries when his car ram-
rfi d another vehicle on a Hollywood Freeway exit ramp, but his buddy suffered
a broken neck and may be paralyzed. California highway patrol says Garret
was under the influence of alcohol. His 18th birthday-when at last he will be
egal-is tomorrow, if you'd like to join in the merrymaking.
19MPLOYMENT FUTURE BRILLIANT FOR ALL. That is the
inevitable conclusion after reviewing a week's worth of little drawings from\
Ashleigh Brilliant, the well-known syndicated cartoonist. The man writes platitudes
and illustrates them himself, calling the entire presentation "Pot Shots." You've all
seen them held up by magnets on the refrigerators of those you despise. This
week, Mr. Brilliant writes "Hello Forever!" and "Once you get above the
cipuds, all the world looks like heaven," and he is getting paid real money for ::t
this. If our economy can support such a man, surely it can find employment for tl s .o d .
thie likes of us. Good, good news.

get their hands on enough of those hot new albums cut by pope John Paul II, and the 52-

the top of the charts. Sometime next week, the record is expected to go-we

CELLO G OODBYiE.
Reknowned Russian cellist and con-
ductor Mstislav Rostropovich this
week lends a little class to your
Peoplemania page. Furious about
h4ving to perform in a large
aditorium, Rostropovich abruptly
canceled a recital in Miami Beach,
and the 3,000 ticketholders at the
Miami Beach Theater were told he
was "iidisposed." "I told you last
year I would never play there again.
Nobody can hear me past the fifth
row," he growled at concert spon-
sors. Then he picked up his cello and
SLOW TRAIN FALLING
OFF TRACKS. Born-again
Christian Bob Dylan didn't light any
fires under the secular feet of his
audiences as his new tour got un-
derway last week. In San Francisco,
the crowd booed the legendary folkie
when he didn't play any of the old
favorites and kept a strong religious
emphasis to his show. Headlines in
the papers read "Bob Dylan's God-
Awful Gospel," and so forth. Sub-
sequent audiences, however, have
been a tad more receptive, even
going so far as to demand an encore.

very funny to make jokes about how
everyone is pirating your albums
