The question May 24: Hollywood chose to set "Godzilla" in New York. What other monster movies would you like to see set in some other city?

"King Kong" set in Washington, D.C. Bill Gates (Kong) takes Janet Reno (Fay Wray) up the Washington Monument.

Raymond Bates

Marina del Rey

Thousand Oaks


St. Louis, where the monstress "Georgzilla" picks up TransWorld Stadium and high-kicks her way to Orange County.

Wayne E. Scott



A 60-foot Newt Gingrich runs amok in the capital, stomping on big government in a rage over too much corporate welfare.

Mike Madrid
