As a daily reader of The Times, I wish you'd stop printing all those pro-Bush stories, editorials and letters. Every day I read one pro-Bush story, editorial or letter after another. Aren't there any anti-Bush people out there? Can't you for once print an anti-Bush story? Robert S. Rodgers Culver City

Re "Remember: You Can't Swat a Fly With a Computer," Commentary, May 8: Michael Kinsley laments the decrease in readership without coming to grips with the very serious reasons for it. Current media (newspapers, TV, magazines, etc.) are filled with trivia and what "news" is permitted by the Bush administration's censorship. For example, I now merely glance at the front pages of the A and B sections, look over the obits, but read the editorials and letters (especially Robert Scheer)

I must take issue with statements I've been reading in editorials and letters to the editor about Old Glory being "just a piece of cloth." They're right to the extent that when the material reaches the assembly table it is "just a piece of cloth." But when the finished product emerges, it no longer is just a piece of cloth. It is alive! It is vibrant! It is glorious! It is our flag! No one, communists or others, should have the "right" to burn it, spit on it, trample on it, or desecrate it in any manner--never ever.

The message from editorials and letters about the schools, their funding and now the tax rebate is that the schools need more money to "improve education." The Op-Ed article by Tokofsky sweeps aside the sophomoric simplicities and hysteria to reveal the main reason our schools and students are failing: too much funding and time are spent for administrative purposes while instructional services are shortchanged. Tokofsky is not saying anything really new, as several other educators have pointed to this flaw in the system; but it has to be said again and again, until parents and taxpayers wake up. It is not only students who have learning difficulties; and it is not only school bureaucrats who sop up the gravy and leave only crumbs to those who are to carry out the main objectives.

Over the past year, The Times has published many reports, editorials and letters on the subject of capital punishment. I commend The Times for its editorial position, but despite this, the advocates of capital punishment clearly outnumber the opponents by more than 2 to 1. In the letters columns, one aspect of state executions has yet to be addressed: the fact that our justice system is far from infallible. It has been demonstrated scientifically countless times that eyewitness testimony is often way off the mark.

I read in the San Gabriel Valley section about our three Monterey Park councilwomen sending letters to their two male colleagues threatening to walk out if subjected to criticism (Times, Jan. 19). After pondering the problem, I'm reminded of Harry Truman's quote: "If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen." Since when is a politician above criticism? The Senate and Congress are full of acrimony. Councilwoman Judy Chu was quick to take Mayor Barry Hatch to task for his position on immigration and his use of city stationery.

The Voices pages, which previously appeared on Monday, have changed day and format. In addition to this page, which replaces Saturday editorials and letters, Voices articles will appear regularly during the week on the Commentary page in the B section.

Beginning today, editorials and letters return on Saturday, sharing the page with Voices. Inaugurating the new features is an editorial on the gritty, unromantic realities of space flight. In Voices, Crenshaw High School Principal Yvonne H.D. Noble chides Nike for its attitude toward her school's student athletes. B7

Re "A Disorienting Loss for Fatah," Feb. 7 I was baffled by your statement, also expressed frequently in Times editorials and letters, that "recognizing Israel and backing a two-state solution matches the beliefs of most Palestinians." The evidence given in the article, and the recent elections, prove otherwise. Why would Palestinians elect a group whose primary purpose is the death of every Jew living on Middle Eastern soil if they didn't believe it? The choice for leader of the younger-generation Fatah was a man serving five life sentences for murdering Israeli citizens.

What again! Enough, already, with your "easy formats." It wasn't enough what you did to the rest of the paper; now you take on the editorial page and turn it into a hodgepodge resembling assorted news items rather than editorial comment. The Times seems to think change is good for its own sake. Not necessarily so. Your tried-and-true concise column of easily-read editorials and accompanying letters to its right provided an orderly, uncluttered look.
