Tim ROBBINS is not campaigning for governor. Nor is he pitching politics to talk radio shock jocks. He isn't even hustling the Hollywood party circuit to gain Academy Award votes for his haunting performance in "Mystic River." The Manhattan-based actor-writer-director is in California again to express his politics the old-fashioned way: through his art. He still believes drama can change consciousness.

IN an otherwise insightful and intriguing article about the genesis of the play "Flags," and its mysterious author Jane Martin ["A Dramatic Battle to Bring War Onto Stage," Aug. 26], Sean Mitchell laments the fact that the American stage has yet to produce a signature piece of the ongoing Iraqi conflict.

Tim Robbins was somewhere in red-state country last year shooting the film "The Lucky Ones" when a serviceman approached him in a bar. "One would think it wouldn't be safe for me to be in situations in areas like that," said the actor and political activist who still burns over the names he was called -- "traitor," "Saddam lover," "terrorist supporter"-- after he made some antiwar remarks back in 2003.
