Re "An Endless Holding Pattern," Valley Edition editorials, Feb. 27. In your editorial about the expansion of the Burbank Airport and the need for compromise, your jab at Burbank City Councilman Bob Kramer, accusing him of lack of leadership, really irritated me. He has always been at the forefront in trying to meet the needs of his constituency in Burbank, which is to try to keep the noise level down from jets late at night so the people can...

It was tempting to look at last week's diplomatic agreement to pull Ukraine back from the brink of war and see the beginning of a grand compromise between Russia and the West. Tempting, but mistaken. Vladimir Putin is still winning most of what he wants in Ukraine, and he's winning it more cheaply and more elegantly than he would by launching a full-scale military invasion. Last week's agreement, which called on pro-Russia militias to end their occupation of government buildings, was probably only a speed bump on the way toward bringing all of Ukraine under Moscow's influence.

Re "A Sign of Pride in a Maligned Area," June 1 The compromise to the skid row dispute lies in its repackaging: "Skidd Rowe." HAL TAYLOR Irvine I have the perfect name for skid row -- sweetly simple, dignified, in step with the times. Let the name be "Skidrow Village." BETTY MARKOFF Los Angeles

I thought Pete Rose wanted to tell the public his side of the story. We all heard of the leaks and rumors concerning his alleged gambling activities. Rose said little except that he would tell his side at the proper time. Now, with this "compromise," Pete is simply making another "bet" that he will be reinstated. The public deserved more.

Re the interview with Anthony R. Moiso ("Slow-Growth Initiative Not the Answer, Developer Says," Jan. 25). Moiso, chairman of the Santa Margarita Co., states that the solution to the traffic problem in Orange County is not to stop building homes, but instead, more roads and more homes. Nowhere in his interview does Moiso call for any programs that would encourage development of mass transit or innovations that were followed with success during the 1984 Olympics at Los Angeles.

By virtue of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo between California and Mexico in 1848, California is forever officially bilingual. That treaty was incorporated into and re-ratified by the Compromise of 1850 by which the Republic of California became part of the United States. So Proposition 63 not only violates a treaty with our neighbor, but is probably unconstitutional as well. MARIA McNAMEE WALP Beverly Hills

Having misplaced the center of the argument, Rutten embraces "reasonable" government restrictions on abortion as a supposed compromise--thereby handing three-fourths of the cake to the anti-abortionists. He shouldn't be so surprised that more women are becoming single-issue voters. Apparently it's the only way to ensure that our most basic rights aren't compromised out of existence by so-called "moderates" like Rutten. BONNIE K. SLOANE Los Angeles

Sometimes cartoonists are clever, lighthearted cutups. Other times we labor over life-and-death matters, solemnly assessing senseless slaughter, harping on healthcare, conceptualizing on abortion. Nate Beeler grimly traced the roots of fundamentalist fury across the global divide and back. Dan Wasserman chewed out Democrats for choosing compromise. And Matt Davies' off-the-wall medical treatment recalled a Cold War classic from the Great Communicator. This week, weighty trumps witty.

Your article "Foes Suggest Compromise in Llama Drama" on April 15 stated: "Two opposing groups of residents proposed to the council a compromise. . . . Also, they said, the city should permit residents to legally keep goats, chickens and rabbits, now technically against the law." There were many people, including myself, who spoke out at the meeting against any of the so-called compromises. By adding other animals, this so-called compromise would double the current animal density allowed in Simi Valley.
