RE DANIELLE Cattie's interview in the Dec. 13 Daily News: Ms. Cattie says, "People need to realize, regardless of anything that has been said, he's the monster," referring to Mr. O'Donnell. Really? You allowed your boyfriend and drug supplier to smoke crack in your home where your children reside, you admittedly are a cocaine addict yourself. If that isn't bad enough, you allowed this same crack addict to take your daughter with him (allegedly to his house) at 5 in the morning.

While Carol Goldring and her family were out celebrating Hanukkah on Dec. 20, someone removed her black lop-eared rabbit, Ebony, from his hutch outside her stone Mission-style home, snapped the animal's neck and neatly skinned it. When the family returned home about 9 p.m., Carol found Ebony dead, with only small tufts of fur remaining on its ears and feet. "We drove up the driveway," she said recently. "I didn't see the rabbit's shadow in the hutch . . . and immediately I knew something was wrong.

MICHAEL Smerconish has taken a number of hits in the letters section for referring to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and their roles as racial arsonists. Polls in Ebony magazine consistently show that African-Americans consider the following individuals as their leaders: Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan, in no particular order. All three have a history of anti-white and anti-semitic conduct as well as questionable personal conduct. It is a reflection on the black community that they pick such characters as their leaders and role models, and blaming Smerconish for saying so is shooting the messenger.

The food, games, face-painting and singing were all fun for Ebony, 11, and her mother, Robin Hunter, 33, of Norristown, but their participation in the Salvation Army Community Center's Second Annual Family Day was also a specially poignant event for them. They were celebrating. For more than 11 years, Hunter had been addicted to drugs and alcohol. But now, for more than seven months, she has been trying to make a new drug-free life for herself and Ebony, her only child. After spending about three months at Family House, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility in Norristown, and about a month at the Norristown Salvation Army's family shelter above the first-floor community center on Swede Street, the Hunters are beginning the long road to recovery together in their own apartment.

Ebony is hogging the computer again. With a firm grip on the joystick, he is sending a circle caroming around the screen, trying to slip it onto a patch of blue - and missing and missing. "Ebony," companion Candace Croney reminds him, "watch the target. " He shifts position, tackles the joystick again and holds tight. The circle slides home. Soo-ey! Ebony's reward, a small food pellet, tumbles down a tube attached to the computer. He picks it up and grunts like a pig - an entirely fitting response considering Ebony is a pig. A handsome, black, tail-wagging, precocious porcine who one day might learn to use his computer to talk.

Because I'm happy / Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof . . . - Pharrell Williams   I'LL BET Pharrell Williams, known for the song of the year, isn't happy he waded into a heated national discussion about the incident of the year.

In this month's issue of Ebony , he responded to an interviewer's question about a convenience-store video that purportedly shows Michael Brown stealing cigarillos just before his deadly run-in with Ferguson, Mo., Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. "It looked very bully-ish; that in itself I had a problem with," Williams told the magazine about the video.

The Cincinnati Reds had one last chance to avoid their worst start in 10 years. Dan Plesac snatched it away. Plesac got Hal Morris to ground out with the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth inning last night, preserving the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates' 4-3 victory. The Reds' ninth consecutive loss left them with the National League's worst record at 9-17 and their worst start since 1986, when they opened 7-19 under manager Pete Rose. It is their longest losing streak since they dropped 12 straight in September 1993, and it has gotten more excruciating every night.

"I can't guarantee a lot of things in life, but I can guarantee you that Richard Pryor does not have AIDS," reports Richard Grossman. Grossman is Pryor's personal physician and close friend. Responding to rumors that have been circulating about the comedian since his recent appearance on "The Tonight Show," the noted doctor tells me, "We've had all the blood tests done - they've come back negative. " It was Grossman who had Pryor admitted last week to UCLA Medical Center for "severe sinus problems.

From Grammy winner Jill Scott's elegant black taffeta two-piece to Philadelphia Orchestra president Allison Vulgamore's satin gown in the deepest of teals, doyennes blanketed Saturday's 157th Anniversary Concert and Ball in shades of velvety midnight. But in every nighttime sky, there are stars that burst with color. It was a pretty high-fashion sight at the Academy of Music: Within the chic crowd of black and navy mermaid silhouettes and one-shouldered ensembles in eggplants and emeralds, there were pops of corals, swaths of reds, and a few flashes of pinky-purple, also known as Pantone's color of the year, radiant orchid.

Hello there Ebony was filling out an application to work at a collection agency in March 2002 when a man walked by on his way to the cafeteria. That was Larry, who already worked in the payment department. "You know when you can feel eyes watching everything you do? That was it," said Larry, who grew up in West Oak Lane. "Our eyes met, and I thought he was kind of cute, but really, really nerdy," said Ebony, originally from Mount Laurel. Two weeks later, Ebony started working in the department that conducted levies on automobiles.

In a collection of rosaries that numbers 860, the prayer beads that started it all look like supporting players amid the headliners. There are the shimmering (with garnet beads from Bavaria), the miniature (just three inches long), and the relics (filled with soil from Italy's catacombs). The plain ebony strand that traveled with her grandfather from Ireland and the silver beads that spent decades in a mother's handbag have history on their side. "I brought it for my mother when I was 19," said Gloria Hoffner, 82, about the silver rosary.

Let's say Eddie Mitchell scores 18 points in his next important basketball outing. Is there a chance that the buzzer can sound? And that the action can be momentarily halted? And that someone can present him the game ball, later to be painted with the pertinent details (including an asterisk)? Mitchell, an electric, 6-foot point guard bound for Rider, finished his La Salle High career with 982 points. He also produced loads of assists and steals and thrills for coach Joe Dempsey, along with 41 wins in his final two seasons, and, on Sunday, you'll get to see how that happened.

There was a time when most African American women didn't know who Yves St. Laurent was, let alone believe they could ever own a crisp YSL pantsuit. But that was before Eunice W. Johnson. Johnson, who died a little more than a year ago, spent more than 50 years introducing all things fashionable, fabulous, and fly to brown-skinned belles, first with her husband, John, by founding Ebony and Jet magazines, and then through her runway show, the Ebony Fashion Fair. Billed as the world's largest traveling fashion show - in its heyday the extravaganza stopped in 170 cities - the show featured more than 200 over-the-top, colorful and avant-garde looks worn by black models at a time when African Americans were still banned from basic privileges like trying on department-store clothes.

When I learned last week that Essence editor Angela Burt-Murray had hired Ellianna Placas as fashion director, I winced. Essence is a lifestyle magazine for black women. So how was this white woman going to speak to me ? Then I thought about it. Didn't I stop my subscription to Essence several years ago because I found the articles depressing? (I already know I'm prone to high blood pressure and that black men with jobs can be hard to find.) And the fashion spreads were a little too avant-garde for me. Around the same time, I started a subscription to O, a magazine with a message that empowers all women, evident in every one of its articles, from the spiritual to the sartorial.

I'm pretty sure Ann Dunham wasn't plotting her son's destiny when she gave him the name Barack Obama, after his Kenyan father, back in 1961. Obama managed to become president of the United States in spite of his unique name, not because of it. How can we forget the countless times his opponents pointedly called him by his full name, Barack Hussein Obama, as if offering proof that he was a foreigner or terrorist. Un-American. Names out of the mainstream are nothing new. And for African Americans, the black-power movement in the late '60s raised our consciousness and gave rise to our own traditional names.
