MONEYBAGS. All his business meetings were over so New York book publisher Lyle Stuart found himself in Vegas with time to kill until he could hop a plane back to work. He should've taken an earlier flight.

"There were three hours before plane time, and I was very tired and impatient. Losing my sense of balance, I found myself making six-, eight- and ten-thousand dollar wagers at baccarat. When the two shoes had been played, I owed Caesars Palace $47,000. Against which I had about $23,000 of their cash in my attache case.

"The peculiar new IRS regulations say you can't hand them more than $10,000 a day in cash without being reported. So I flew back with their cash and they sit with my markers. Oh well, one can't win them all!" DR. WHO? We're glad to see that once back home in New York, publisher Lyle Stuart immediately ground out one of those chatty, insider's letters he modestly calls "Hot News!" In it we learned of an interesting trend or maybe trendlet.

He says that the giant Waldenbooks retail chain informs him that when it comes to calendar sales 'Dynasty' and 'MTV' aren't moving, but the Dr. Who calendar is flying off the shelves.' "

Odd isn't it. Here we have "Dynasty" and "MTV" dominating the supermarket magazines and the gossip columns yet, so far as we know, "Dr. Who" is just a kid cult favorite you can only pick up on the lesser-known public TV channels.
