A failed braking system apparently caused two tires to blow out on a Northwest Airlines jetliner after it landed at John Wayne Airport on Tuesday morning, creating a loud explosion but causing no injuries among the 41 passengers and crew members aboard. The noise of the blowouts on the Airbus A-320 traveled far and, at first, sounded like an engine exploding, said Orange County Fire Department Capt.

Noise No Justification for Impasse? Baloney! It is clear that Joyce Streator does not live in Burbank Airport's flight path. Her article, "Noise No Justification for Impasse" (Nov. 29), demonstrates the lack of awareness many expansion proponents have for the plight of people living under the airport's onus of noise.

Call it television's dominant and recessive voices; call it the medium's superego and its id. (Hell, call it Heckle and Jeckle for all I care.) In its normal voice, TV is unfailingly polite to its audience, which makes a lot of sense considering that the audience is what TV sells to its sponsors and is therefore TV's real product. Yet every so often there is that other voice, that other persona, the one that rivets us, startles us, commands our attention precisely because it is not so nice.
