We get letters. . . . This batch includes responses to columns about pro-Sandinista news reports from Nicaragua, a West-thrashing PBS documentary series called "The Africans" and the coming ABC miniseries "Amerika," which depicts a future United States controlled by the Soviets and administered by the United Nations. There are also letters about Joan Rivers' new syndicated talk show and NBC's "Cheers": The two reports of Leticia Ponce and Bill Press with "one view" of Nicaragua are too remindful of early visitors to the "workers' paradise" of the developing USSR, leading to later disillusionment.
