Your article by Denise Hamilton on "ecologically correct" fashion was a masterpiece of anti-fur bias ("Eco-Fashion, Naturally," July 6). The manufacture of fake fur uses a non-renewable resource, oil, as its base and the manufacturing process damages our air and water. The end product not only is non-biodegradable, but it fails to keep the wearer warm. The fact is that wearing fur is an ecologically and morally responsible thing to do, given the state of today's polluted planet.

Identifying with Denise Hamilton ("When Your Biological Clock Is on 'Snooze,' " Sept. 21), I would suggest that if the clock is on snooze, let well enough alone and don't let anyone make you feel guilty (for choosing not to have children).

The May 8 San Gabriel Valley section contained an article authored by Alan Maltun and Denise Hamilton entitled "Court OKs Concord Sale to Pay Creditors." That article involved the sale of the Concord Building, which is an asset of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy estate pending before the Honorable William Lazarow, bankruptcy judge. However, that article also discusses other bankruptcy proceedings, including that of United Community Church. This office is counsel to the church in that case. My client takes exception to the conclusion in your article that United Community Church is "affiliated" with the Rev. William McBirnie.
