I'd like to thank Don Oliver for the concern he showed in his letter (July 28) regarding the story "Judge Orders Driver Tried for Murder in 4 Crash Deaths." It was my wife and children who were killed in that accident. After reading the article in The Times, I can understand Oliver's concern. Judge David Bach handled the case in a very fair and admirable way. However, we do need better reporting. The Times reported that Judge Bach said "I have sympathy for Mr. Reding." The judge did say that, but he said more.

NBC News, which recently decided to close its San Francisco bureau, is dropping longtime Los Angeles-based correspondent Don Oliver.

The 54-year-old Oliver has been covering Los Angeles and the West Coast for NBC since 1976.

Re: "Bishop Prays at Headstone for Fetuses" (Oct. 3): The Times took great editorial liberties in its heading for the story of Bishop McFarland dedicating a memorial headstone "dedicated to millions of God's children deprived of the gift of life." The stone is not a "headstone for fetuses." It is a sad memorial to the daily carnage that takes place throughout America, for which we are even now beginning to answer.

Judge Bach also says that "most of us, judges and lawyers even, have gotten behind the wheel after drinking more than we should."
