RE DEBBIE Burns' response to my letter on parents of screaming brats in public places: It's hilarious that someone would tell me that I lack consideration when she has no problem with one child and his or her parents spoiling everyone else's outing. Consideration for others means that if someone's child starts throwing a tantrum, the parents remove the kid. Debbie asks how I was raised. I was taught to behave. To not scream, to not throw tantrums, and not spoil something for everyone around me. I was taught to have consideration and respect for others.

I'm convinced that people attend Ryan Adams shows hoping some yahoo will yell out a Bryan Adams reference that sends the petulant roots rocker into one of his infamous onstage meltdowns. No one called for "Cuts Like a Knife" Friday at the sold-out Electric Factory. But there were enough heckles, chatterbox fans, and technical difficulties to knock Adams way off his game and prompt him to bolt the stage prematurely - if you can classify calling it a night after 2 1/2 hours premature.

A jut-jawed Marine who said he prided himself on self-control was convicted yesterday of beating his 2-year-old stepdaughter to death last summer in their Bucks County apartment. Kayla Hughes of Warminster died June 19 from a beating so harsh that it tore her spinal cord and caused her brain to fatally swell. Her small body bore 27 bruises - 18 of them to the head - and a crushed bowel. A Bucks County jury yesterday convicted her stepfather, Donald F. Keenum 3d, of aggravated assault, involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and endangering a child's welfare.

"Encountering the lethal competition and relentless pressure of NBC's Washington bureau at the relatively tender age of 30 (she consistently represented herself as a year younger on all publicity releases) would have been hard on even the most mature and well balanced of broadcasters, and Savitch was neither . . . Newsroom regulars traded tales of her temper tantrums, her high-hat demands, her reportorial fumbles, and her alleged affairs with various news division VIPs. Nonetheless, even her most bitter critics had to acknowledge that she had a red-light reflex to die for; when the scarlet light went on over a studio camera, signaling that she was on the air, Savitch summoned up every ounce of her 100-pound frame and projected herself straight through the television set into the viewer's living room . . . In, 1983, Savitch was no longer young, nor was she a rising star.

Question: I am guilty of occasionally resenting my boyfriend because he doesn't take it well when I say no. He pouts when I tell him I want to do something other than what he wants — like going to the grocery store instead of out to dinner. Generally I give in, but if I insist that groceries must be bought, he stops speaking to me and leaves abruptly. Over the years I have tried to ignore the pouting, but I am basically a peacekeeper, and want to know if there is a more amiable way to defuse the tension.

Kids who scream their heads off in the supermarket or refuse to go to bed at night may not seem like major problems. But tantrums in the market and wide eyes in the night can be hard on parents - who often are unsure how to respond. So people like Jeanie Curry and Carol Daly and Karen Kwisz, mothers all, have signed up for the Neighborhood Parenting Program in Kensington, a place where mothers - and an occasional father - go to tell their kiddie horror stories, puzzle over problems and share the good news, too. The parenting program is celebrating its first birthday this month.

WHAT THE @$&^$^#$ are anger management classes? It seems like almost every day we're hearing about some notable, including our very own local heiress Susan Tabas Tepper, being assigned to them. Judges across the U.S. are mandating them instead of jail time. So - what are they? Well, for one, they're an unregulated, unevaluated, non-standardized but thriving industry. Did your hot-dog cart go belly up? Start an anger-management program and market the @^$@^%$ out of it. Get downsized from Enron/Tyco/WorldCom?

Bruno Mars   When he was 6, Bruno Mars portrayed a pint-sized Elvis impersonator in the movie Honeymoon in Vegas . This year, the Hawaii native racked up his first five No. 1 hits faster than any male singer since Presley. It's a slightly ironic, well-deserved achievement for the charismatic Mars, who, in little over two years, has already nabbed a Grammy, a Billboard Award, an American Music Award, and a BRIT Award. Touring in support of his chart-topping second album, Unorthodox Jukebox , the 27-year-old singer-songwriter/producer (real name: Peter Hernandez)

It pains me to report that my paper recently printed a blatantly sexist item that insulted countless female persons. This was brought to my attention when the sharp-eyed blonde with whom I live stormed into the room waving the sports section. "Have you ever seen a woman golfer throw a club when she makes a bad shot?" she asked. I have no such memory. "Have you ever seen a woman golfer slam a club or throw it into a pond?" Never. "And have you ever heard a woman scream filthy, four-letter words on a golf course?"

The earsplitting scream turned every head. D, an otherwise healthy and robust 2-year-old boy, had arrived for his checkup and was having a superhero-size tantrum. Of course, routine visits to the pediatrician can trigger discontent in toddlers, but this boy's reaction was lasting an unusually long time. None of the staff's usual interventions were working and it was becoming clear he was fast approaching an inconsolable stage. His mother said that lately, D's meltdowns were getting worse; he was less talkative and not sleeping well at nap time or bedtime.

Question: I hope I'm not too late with a Christmas dilemma. My friend, "Louise," has a 4-year-old niece, "Lyndie," who is already a spoiled brat. Last year at their family Christmas gathering, Louise said she patted the then-3-year-old on her head as she passed her in the hallway. The little girl followed her to her chair, got in her face and exclaimed, "Don't ever touch me like that again," and stormed off. Louise was flabbergasted, since...

PATTI LaBELLE threw a $100,000 hissy fit. Hometown gal LaBelle paid up $100K to former kindergarten teacher Roseanna Monk after a 2010 incident that left no one injured but gave Monk and her then-18- month-old-daughter, Genevieve , lots of hurt feelings. Miss Patti allegedly screamed at the pair because she believed that the tot was playing too close to the lobby door of LaBelle's NYC apartment. LaBelle allegedly called Monk all sorts of nasty names that aren't fit to print in a paper as classy as the Daily News and "soaked" Monk with water.

While I'm away, readers give the advice. On grandparents who are a bad influence: My father married an emotionally unstable woman. She managed to engineer their lives (and mine) through our collective fear of her anger and tantrums. I spent 20 years kowtowing to her out of fear she would force my father to choose between us. One of her favorite zingers was that I had all this education and what was the point when I chose to stay home with my children? I suspected I would never win the showdown if it came to that.

Toronto's Brett Lawrie was suspended for four games after he angrily threw his batting helmet Tuesday - and it bounced off umpire Bill Miller. Lawrie, outraged at ball and strike calls, is appealing and can play until there is a decision. The 22-year-old was in the starting lineup Wednesday night against the New York Yankees - with the same umpiring crew in town. Miller was at third base. Lawrie received the loudest cheer in pregame introductions and the umpires were booed when their names were posted on the scoreboard.

STATE REP. DWIGHT Evans offers no apologies. Not for any of it. Not for his 30-year effort to revitalize Ogontz Avenue in West Oak Lane. Not for the last decade trying to make Stenton Avenue a corridor of top-notch education choices, with Martin Luther King High School the centerpiece. Not for the "bulldog-on-a-bone" way he lobbied for an educational nonprofit, Foundations Inc., to take control of that school, including backroom pressure that has now cast him as a big-time bully.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. That's what Cubs starting righthander Carlos Zambrano told Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune. Zambrano vows that he will no longer exhibit bad behavior on the field. Seriously. He did. No more arguing with umpires or beating water coolers with bats. Of course, he said the same thing 5 years ago and couldn't get past Opening Day without being ejected for telling umpire Dale Scott that he needed glasses. What's different this time around?
