TO THE writer who referred to "the same fans that booed Santa": A simple Google search will lead you to plenty of protesters against the continued employment of Ben Roethlisberger and Rick Pitino. The first team to give Donte Stallworth a "second chance" will also experience an enormous backlash. You live in Philadelphia, so Michael Vick is going to seem like he's the only one receiving any backlash. Ryan Cullen, Philadelphia

RE HIGH gas prices: Since our own government doesn't want to help, maybe we should try carpooling or not driving at all. I also sponsor a boycott of all Middle Eastern imports until those hard-headed sheiks and oil cartels stop juicing up the price of crude. Those Mideastern countries don't give a fig about us. Maybe it's time we make them take notice. Joe Hamilton, Philadelphia

I READ THE Daily News and the letters in response to events every day and move on. This time, I just couldn't. Miles Edwards (May 14) writes about the taped beating of three black men by Philadelphia police. He says he was appalled and asks where is the justice and the outcry? I didn't like what I saw either, and I'm a white woman. But is calling for more outcry from politicians or the people the answer? What about the hundreds of men, women and children who are beaten, murdered and raped, whether they are white or black?

A few days ago, Abdo Abboud called his father, Kamal, from college and asked a question that is depressingly familiar in many Arab-American families these days. "Are we that bad, Dad?" the 22-year-old University of Pittsburgh student said. Kamal, 51, a Syrian-born American citizen who came to the United States 24 years ago and settled in Bethlehem, Pa., recounted that conversation with sadness as he joined dozens of Arab-Americans at a meeting of the Arab- American Institute yesterday.

NEW YORK - Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the renowned breast-cancer charity, is facing an escalating backlash over its decision to halt breast-screening grants to Planned Parenthood. Some of Komen's local affiliates are openly troubled, and at least one top official has quit, reportedly in protest. Komen has been deluged with negative emails and Facebook postings since news broke Tuesday that it was halting most of the grants - they totaled $680,000 last year - that Planned Parenthood affiliates used for breast exams.

In her best-selling book, Backlash, Susan Faludi gave "the undeclared war against American women" some serious back talk. In reading the current audio version of her book, Faludi makes it double back talk. This recording is an example of audio at its best, in that Faludi's tone - frequently sarcastic, occasionally snide - offers levels of interpretation that aren't available on the printed page. Backlash (Publishing Mills) is one of the newer breed of audio books that is abridged, but nevertheless longer than the usual three hours.

The wrangling for RJR Nabisco Inc. is testing the limits of tolerance that people on and off Wall Street have for mega-deals and their mega-profits. Big deals keep getting bigger. But like a balloon that keeps expanding, the bids for RJR Nabisco, which exceed $20 billion, may be the ones to pop the buy-out business. Directors of the tobacco and food conglomerate met this weekend to consider offers from at least two groups, one of which includes current executives. Both of the bidding groups want to borrow staggering sums of money to buy out other shareholders.

If you read rock mags with any frequency at all, rock is either dying, dead, or alive again, thanks to any hapless "saviors" of the moment such as the Strokes or any other sweet young things to fill in the blank of your choice. Who can keep up anymore? Is it worth believing in the Frankenstein that is rock 'n' roll? Or more importantly, as the New York Dolls used to sing, "Can you handle a Frankenstein?" The loudest voices of the Strokes backlash are coming from fans of the Rye Coalition (7 tonight at Killtime, 39th Street and Lancaster Avenue, 215-413-1291, $7, all ages, www.r5 productions.

IF YOU SAW a headline that read, " Gavin Rossdale 's Gay Lover Reveals Secret Phone Call That Sparked The Divorce - Gwen Stefani Heartbroken," you might think the couple's nearly 13-year marriage ended because the Bush frontman was cheating on the No Doubt frontwoman with a dude. That might be a stretch. The radaronline.com story indicates that the "gay lover" Rossdale reached out to was cross-dressing pop singer Marilyn (a/k/a Peter Robinson), to vent about his marital problems.

BY NOW, we all know that Cecil the lion was slaughtered by a rich American dentist named Walter Palmer, who paid $50,000 to track and kill the magnificent beast in Zimbabwe in early July. I've never understood the allure of hunting animals for kicks, whether it's offing a squirrel with a .22 or ripping into a big cat like Cecil with a crossbow. A lot of Americans don't get it, either. Over 735,000 of them have signed a "Justice for Cecil" petition on change.org, urging punishment for those involved in Cecil's death (including the big-game tour guides Palmer hired to help hunt his prey)

The terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week continued for State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams after he campaigned for mayor by calling for the firing of Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey. Ramsey on Thursday said he was disappointed that Williams used a televised debate Tuesday to air what should have been a private conversation. Nutter, who on Wednesday suggested that Williams "probably isn't smart enough" to be mayor if he wants to fire Ramsey, said Thursday that candidates should wait to see if they win the mayor's race before announcing whom they would hire and fire.

Of the five Dallas Cowboys games Gov. Christie has attended this season, team owner Jerry Jones supplied the tickets for three - along with a private plane ride for Christie and his family to attend Sunday's game in Texas, the governor's office said Monday. While New Jersey's rules allow the governor, a longtime Cowboys fan, to accept gifts from friends, two legal experts questioned whether the gifts gave the appearance of improper conduct. "We're going to see. This is a lot of money, being paid for by somebody who is an owner of a team in the NFL. The NFL has wanted a lot of things in New Jersey," said Larry Noble, former general counsel for the Federal Election Commission and now senior counsel with the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan watchdog group in Washington.

Gov. Christie says he has long backed the Dallas Cowboys, but his allegiance drew fresh attention - and ire from some Philadelphia fans - Sunday night when television cameras showed the New Jersey governor high-fiving Dallas owner Jerry Jones during a Cowboys win over the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. "The first thing I thought was, wow, I might actually not vote for him if I had the opportunity," Greg Shields, 24, of Drexel Hill, said Monday. "It rubbed me completely the wrong way. " He was one of a number of disgruntled Eagles fans who took to Twitter to criticize Christie's decision to sit with Jones and cheer on the enemy in Philadelphia territory.

He called it consensual. She called it rape. Their college, Swarthmore, acted decisively. He was expelled. Those spare facts make up the little that the parties can agree upon in a lawsuit working its way through federal court in Philadelphia. The young man at its center - an honors student and former high school class president identified in court filings only as John Doe - says he was wrongfully accused and found guilty of sexual misconduct by a school eager to quash criticism that it did not take assault allegations from female students seriously.

With activists camped outside his headquarters and the nation's top technology companies bashing proposed Internet rules, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Thomas Wheeler is facing a backlash over his plan to create Internet fast lanes and slow lanes. Opponents of the proposal say Wheeler has sold out to the telecom lobby, and warn of Internet haves and have-nots. But supporters say Wheeler is constrained by a federal appeals court ruling and is adapting existing laws to a modern communications technology.

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, under siege from record customer backlash over high winter electricity prices, is moving to force power suppliers to fully disclose the details of their deals. The commission proposed Wednesday regulation changes that will require supplier disclosure statements to provide greater uniform detail in plain English, especially pertaining to variable-rate deals, which have generated the most complaints. The new rulemaking measure follows a PUC announcement Tuesday that it would dramatically speed up the time it takes for customers to switch suppliers.
