Federal and local law enforcement authorities say a day rarely goes by in Orange County when an individual or corporation doesn't become a victim of white-collar crime. Southern California is considered the center of financial fraud, home to more con men than any other region of the United States. The perpetrators range from corporate executives pilfering company funds to small-time thieves who steal investors' money simply by promising them sky-high returns.

Let's not forget that Bork served as executioner for Nixon's "Saturday Night Massacre," an immoral act impossible to any of the ordinarily decent people we know and admire, but that earned him the gratitude of many a miscreant. DAVID ALAN MUNRO Laguna Beach

I hasten to add my congrats to you for getting "Be Prepared: Posse Out to 'Save' Scouts" safely past every censor and into print. It's long overdue. For too long, we've slipped along thoughtlessly letting total irresponsibles make up our media and our minds on matters having to do with religion.

President Carter showed his sincerity by his personal hands-on negotiating, while President Bush showed his insincerity (or remoteness)
