WASHINGTON - Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of Orange County, the senior California Republican in Congress, was in office during the 1995-96 government shutdowns. He acknowledges that it hurt the GOP, but he sees the risk of another shutdown as "part of the game" of negotiating changes to the healthcare law he hates. "There's never any progress without risk," he told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday. Rep. Eric Swalwell, a freshman Democrat from the San Francisco Bay Area, was 15 when the federal government last shut down.

Concerning Jack Mathews' April 22 cover story, "The Ethics of Hollywood": When I moved here three years ago from Texas to make it as a screenwriter in the glitter capital, I had already been screwed on one deal by a Texas producer. So my initiation had already started, and I had no illusions about the ethical labyrinth that lay before me. But I decided I would not compromise myself or be drawn into a situation that probably would. I've stuck to my guns, although it's been frustrating.

SACRAMENTO -- A compromise bill that would make California the first state in the nation to require recycling of old mattresses easily passed the state Senate. The proposal could help keep an estimated 2 million used mattresses and box springs from being dumped on city streets, vacant lots and rural lands, said supporters, who include bedding manufacturers and environmentalists. Quiz: How well do you remember 2012? The bill, SB 254, now goes to the state Assembly.

A federal appeals court sought a compromise between a liberal group demanding the names of White House visitors and the Bush administration, which says releasing the names would erode the president's power. The White House wants the visitor logs considered official documents, which would keep them from public view for more than a decade.

Re "Utah's front in GOP civil war," Nov. 14 The targeting of Utah Sen. Robert F. Bennett by ultra-conservatives is an excellent example of why lifelong moderate Republicans like me left the GOP. I was particularly chagrined when one of the contenders for Bennett's seat said that his supporters were fed up with the way Washington conducts its business because people have to compromise to get things done, or as he so eloquently put it, "[give]...

The State Department today denounced as "outlandish" a Soviet threat to consider retaining some nuclear missiles outlawed in a 1987 treaty if NATO proceeded with a program to upgrade short-range weapons. A department spokesman, Richard Boucher, also dismissed reports that the United States was working out a compromise with West Germany, which opposes the modernization program for the 88 Lance launchers and their 700 or so missiles. "I don't see any sort of compromise shaping up, but we are certainly continuing discussions," the U.S. official said.

Ciotti's article is full of women who want men but who don't sound as though they will compromise a thing to get a man. There are plenty of us out here--single, lonely, willing to commit to a loving relationship. We want families and companionship. But if we compromise our schedules, careers and fantasies, we want to believe that we are important enough that our wives will stick with us after the children have left home. We want to believe we are more than just a source for seeds or social image or financial security.

Questions and answers about the compromise that could end the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, the 1993 law prohibiting gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military. Why is this vote coming up now? Activists and supporters of repealing "don't ask, don't tell" fear that Republicans will make enough gains in November to block a repeal in the next Congress. The activists pushed lawmakers and the White House to add an amendment repealing the ban to this year's Defense Authorization Act, which is moving through Congress.

Regarding the disagreement between the Board if Supervisors and the Sierra Club over renaming the Angeles National Forest for President Reagan, may I suggest a compromise: designate one tree to be called the Reagan Tree. After all, if you've named one tree, you've named them all. JOYCE LaMERS Oxnard
