Your article on the use of antibiotics in farm animals ["FDA Sets New Path on Animal Antibiotics," Jan. 9] fell short of presenting a complete picture of this important subject. I am just one person, and I know of four people who are experiencing the nightmare of having contracted an antibiotic-resistant strain of bacteria. My own son was hospitalized for three weeks with this, landing a medical discharge from the Army. In order to produce meat on the scale that Americans consume it, producers have to give the animals antibiotics.

Aries (March 21-April 19): You will need to take an aggressive stance with someone to get something accomplished. You will also be merciful when you need to be. Taurus (April 20-May 20): You'll be an expert reader of facial expressions and body language. You'll endear others to you by tuning in to their rhythm. Gemini (May 21-June 21): Laughter is aerobics for the soul. You'll be giggling throughout the afternoon and ensuring your own good health as you do. Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Re "I want my House TV," editorial, Dec. 16 Has C-SPAN Chief Executive Brian Lamb decided to play the old ratings game? He would like a more "complete picture" of the House floor so that the viewers could get a clearer picture of the "personality" of the members? I don't think so. Anyone with half a brain knows that the presence of a camera alters the behavior of those within range. Can we look forward to a "Dr. Phil" rendition of the business of government with cameras trying to catch every off-guard moment of our elected officials?

A pro-El Toro airport group on Wednesday dropped the latest salvo in the war over the proposed airfield when it released a report suggesting home values wouldn't be hurt by commercial jets overhead. That finding came under immediate fire from airport opponents and others, including the Orange County Assn. of Realtors, a South County-based group that initially participated in the study but dropped out last month after reading its conclusions.

Listen to the fragments: "He was shot twice. In the back. My brother jumped over him to get out." "Right in front of me. I saw him die." "My sister. He went back in to get my sister." They spit out the horror in dull, flat voices. No hysteria. No tears. Not now, five hours after the screaming, the crying, the cowering, the running. Now they were drained. Now they were numb. Now they had only dull, flat voices, voices squeezed so dry with pain that they could scarcely convey the horror.

While both Robbert Flick and Allan Sekula have worked here on and off since the '70s, the two artists have rarely intersected professionally. Flick, a USC professor, has long concentrated on Los Angeles cityscapes while Sekula, who teaches at California Institute of the Arts, has been drawn to the region's shore and ports.
