As a regular contributor to this newspaper, the Rev. Bryan Griem delights in attacking any view that is not precisely in accord with his own, while demeaning anyone who holds such a view. In discussing Darwin in the In Theory column Feb. 21 (“Darwin’s place in the world”), Griem managed to dismiss the view of the largest Christian church in the world by stating that “we’re either evolutionists or Christians, not both,” thereby contradicting the official Catholic position.

Many people around the world observed the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth Feb. 12. Darwin has been one of the most controversial figures in science and religion for the last century and a half, with some hailing him as a genius and others criticizing his beliefs as narrow-minded or even blasphemous. What are your personal feelings about Darwin and the changes his theories brought to the world?   I think mostly about the legacy of division between Darwinists and creationists.

What form of existence awaits us upon our deaths? In the Falcon Theatre's American premiere of "Darwin in Malibu," British playwright Crispin Whittell wryly begs this question with the help of beautiful technical elements and a star-studded cast. Scenic designer Keith E. Mitchell provides the deck of an enviable beach house in Southern California's most exclusive community as the setting in which our understanding of reality collides head-on with the supernatural. Whittell's philosophical comedy examines the afterlife via a trio of worldly allies and adversaries hell-bent on continuing the argument of creation versus evolution.

Post office is needed on west end Regarding “Post office is being shipped,” Feb. 14: I have lived in Burbank at the west end just off Magnolia Avenue since 1973. Telling me that the Magnolia Park Post Office is going to close and directing me to the Hollywood Way Post Office equates to telling me Burbank Airport is closing and directing me to LAX. The distance is extreme; however, the smaller post office I prefer over the larger one. Also, I agree with the businesspeople.

It?s not often that a ventriloquist steals the show from his dummies. But that was certainly the case Saturday night at the Colony Theatre, where veteran voice-tosser Jay Johnson brought back his hilarious one-man show, ?Jay Johnson: The Two and Only? for a limited engagement. Throughout the 95-minute set, Johnson illuminated audience members with an extended personal history of his long journey into professional ventriloquism and treated them to appearances by a8 talking tennis ball, a prickly snake puppet and a vulture nicknamed ?

?Australia? was marketed for weeks before its opening as an epic, and if large portions are any measure of that, ?Australia? is truly an epic film production. But large portions don?t necessarily make for great filmmaking, and in this case, much of the impact of the story is overwhelmed by the saccharine nature of its telling, and the film becomes a weepy, treacly tear-jerker. Producer/co-writer and director Baz Luhrmann has created a long, rambling motion picture that is part Western, part war movie and part romance, and the story is nursed along via narrative from a biracial boy named Nullah (Brandon Walters)
