GREG Bucceroni's letter regarding the "smoke and mirrors" and "vigilante" Guardian Angels is xenophobic pabulum. I lived in West Philadelphia in 1988 to 1991, and would have appreciated any crime-fighting help to assist police in that era of murder. In fact, my experience in West Philly helped shaped my interest in fighting crime, and I've been a Guardian Angel for 14 years now. We've been serving Reno for 12 years. Vigilantes? As a minority, I get the same stereotypes about my race as the Angels get about what they do. Has Greg ever met or walked along with the Angels to see what they do?

The Anaheim Angels reacquired Tony Phillips from the Chicago White Sox in a trade yesterday. Phillips, who left the Angels as a free agent after the 1995 season, and catcher Chad Kreuter were acquired for lefthanded reliever Chuck McElroy and catcher Jorge Fabregas. Phillips likely will supplant Darin Erstad as leadoff hitter and Eddie Murray as the primary designated hitter. Murray, 41, is hitting .219, with two homers and 10 RBIs in 32 games. In 1995, Phillips scored 119 runs and hit 27 home runs as the Angels' leadoff hitter.

THE LOS ANGELES Angels traded power hitter Kendrys Morales to the Seattle Mariners for lefthander Jason Vargas. The 29-year-old Morales became expendable after the Angels agreed to a deal last week with free-agent slugger Josh Hamilton. The Angels had been looking for a pitcher after losing Zack Greinke and Dan Haren to free agency and trading Ervin Santana. Morales hit .273 with 22 home runs and 73 RBI last season. Vargas led Seattle in wins last season, going 14-11 with a 3.85 ERA.   Noteworthy *  The New York Yankees and Ichiro Suzuki finalized a $13 million, 2-year contract that keeps the 10-time All-Star in the Bronx.

After conquering the Yankees on Sept. 6 in Yankee Stadium, Angels pitcher John Candelaria expressed his desire to play in New York rather than California. "I've always envisioned how nice it would be," he said at that time. "Just walking around New York the past two days, I imagined what it would be like to pitch here. I love it here. " The Angels yesterday made Candelaria a happy man by trading the southpaw to the Mets in exchange for two minor-league pitchers. Candelaria, 33, started 20 games for the Angels this season, throwing one shutout, compiling an earned-run average of 4.71 and posting an 8-6 record.

"Angels in America" is very '80s. It is huge, ostentatious, has a few bad haircuts and Ronald Reagan- worshiping characters. But it is also the most important play of this modern age, a tour-de-force of hilarity and pathos - worthy of all the hyperbolic adjectives drama critics have lavished upon it even before its 1993 Broadway debut. "Angels in America" is also very long. Not grueling, like "Schindler's List," but broad. It is divided into two parts - the first, "Millennium Approaches," is easier to digest; the second, "Perestroika," is far more challenging.

In biblical times, angels were fearsome creatures who descended on chariots of fire, slew the enemies of God with bolts of lightning and protected the innocent with shields of righteousness. But these are the '90s, and each generation must re-imagine angels in its own way, in its own image, to address its own problems. Thus, we have angels who look like Della Reese and help people retrieve missing pets. And angels like the title character in "Michael" - a chubby, middle-aged white guy who likes the Beatles.

The California Angels didn't want the Seattle Mariners to clinch a tie for the AL West at their expense. "We didn't want to give them a chance to celebrate in front of us," manager Marcel Lachemann said after visiting California kept the division race close with a 2-0 victory over Seattle last night. "The guys didn't want that to happen and they didn't let it happen. " Chuck Finley (14-12) was the Angels' hero, allowing only three hits in 6 1/ 3 innings before a screaming crowd of 50,212.

On Monday, a new type of crowdfunding will become legal, and the public can begin buying shares or debt in private companies. But will Philadelphia start-ups and local entrepreneurs raise big money through crowdfunding? If this past week's Angel Capital Association convention is any indication, probably not right away. Sebastian Gomez Abero of the Securities and Exchange Commission's Office of Small Business Policy addressed the angel-investor crowd Wednesday, and as one of the authors of regulation for crowdfunding, sought to clarify for investors and issuing entrepreneurs the rules on this new type of financing.

BABY ANGELICA Owens opened her eyes. The light that Sharon Hackney Robinson saw in them changed everything. "She's in there!'" Robinson said excitedly to Maria Trillana, a fellow nurse in the Infant Intensive Care Unit at Temple University Hospital, where Angel was fighting for her life. "She opened her eyes! I saw it! She's in there!" Trillana peered at Angelica, nicknamed Angel, who'd been born two weeks earlier, at three months premature. She weighed just 1.1 pounds and was the length of a Bic pen. Her lungs were a mess, and she was swollen with fluids that her underdeveloped kidneys couldn't process.

Sally Johnston has been chaperoning - perhaps mother-henning is a better way to put it - Miss New Jerseys for 50 years. Some of the 50 or 60 young women she has taken under her wing have become like daughters to this 78-year-old mother of three daughters of her own. Many have become good friends. Only one, says Johnston, she hopes not to see again. But a special few, like Cara McCollum, Miss New Jersey 2013, have transcended all those boundaries to become "like an angel" in Johnston's life.

It premieres at 10 p.m. Thursday. Shades of Blue is a smart, well-written star vehicle worthy of the actor-singer's talents as they have matured and been seasoned with experience.

Claire Boucher, the Canadian indie electronic artist who records as Grimes, is a fabulously conflicted pop star. Boucher, who plays a sold-out late show Saturday at Union Transfer as part of her Rhinestone Cowgirl tour, has just released Art Angels , her fourth album and by far her most pop-targeted effort to date. It's also the first sign of evidence of her professed love for such Top 40 heroines as Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, and the Dixie Chicks. You might not know that by looking at the album cover.
