Tickets for a second Bruce Springsteen-Bonnie Raitt-Jackson Browne benefit concert at the Shrine Auditorium will go on sale Saturday under a "restricted" system that concert sponsors hope will make it harder for scalpers to get tickets. Proceeds from the 8 p.m. performance on Nov. 17 will benefit the Washington-based Christic Institute, an interfaith nonprofit center for law and public policy.

On May 10 the front page of The Times aroused my immediate interest with news of John Hull in "An American 'Don' Falls in Costa Rica" by Richard Boudreaux. I have been following this important political, criminal and drug case as reported by the Christic Institute in its lawsuit naming the same persons. Sen. John Kerry's (D-Mass.) hearings, which never received the press they deserved, substantiate the same allegations, same events, places and people. The Times reported in early February that Judge James Lawrence King in Miami threw out the Christic Institute lawsuit on behalf of journalists Tony Avirgan and Martha Honey for lack of evidence.
