Have we not had enough of Steve Howe's "never-ending story?" When are the morals and class needed to project an upstanding team image? Is it lack of courage on the part of Dodger management or just lack of scruples? L. CRAIG Altadena

Several days ago my car was almost broadsided by a young man who failed to stop for a stop sign. He was talking on his cell phone while driving. Isn't there one legislator with the courage to introduce a bill to make this practice illegal? TRUDI SILVERS Los Angeles

To the many supporters of the opposition, I congratulate you for your bravery and courage. To the new president of the Republic of the Philippines, Corazon Cojuanco Aquino, I thank you for your perseverance. Finally, as a Filipino-American, I have this to say, "Free at last!" CECILE F.

The ordeal of Patricia Lewis, a South-Central Los Angeles woman whose life was torn apart after she testified about a 1982 street gang murder, has prompted the California District Attorneys Assn. to create an annual Witness of the Year award.

Regarding "Life After 187," Oct. 15, in which you interviewed Vladimir Cerna. Cerna is more American than most Americans. America was founded and preserved by those who had the courage to stand in the face of grave opposition--by those who had a vision of sacrifice for the greater good. Only the purely ignorant would rebuke Cerna as non-American. I was a teacher in a largely Latino school when the vote on Proposition 187 was reported. I know the fear it bestows on the Latino community.

Kudos to Brian Lowry for his piece on one of the funniest men who should be back in show business, Art Metrano ("Comedy With Courage," July 12). One of the best times I ever experienced at a Dodgers game was watching Metrano take over the stands as a "vendor," hawking wares and peanuts. I also can appreciate Metrano's courage in light of now being disabled, vying for visibility in a craft that he has excelled at. After being chronically ill for several years now, I would appreciate not only seeing him work once again, but would find a positive image portrayed for many of us who are not as "able bodied" as the film industry thinks that everyone should be.
