That was an excellent article by Margo Kaufman. I'd say more, but I'm the silent type. RICHARD NELSON Salton Sea Beach

Who wrote all the plays? The old paradigm dies hard ["Shakespeare: Playwright or Phantasm?" May 9]. As the Stratfordian myth continues to be exposed, we are witnessing all the tools of the status quo: denial, ridicule and personal attacks. James Shapiro's book follows in that trend, ascribing all sorts of sinister motives to those who dare to question the orthodoxy, unable to see the real motive — the unending search for the truth.

Regarding "Billionaire's plea deal rejected," Sept. 9: Kudos for your excellent article on Broadcom Corp. co-founder Henry Samueli's contretemps and Judge Cormac J. Carney's well-reasoned decision. You got all the facts and nuances right in a cogent, well-conceived article with complex issues at work. Attention must be paid. Stuart Weiss Beverly Hills

I want to congratulate Dirlam on her excellent article. Many of us shared this kind of aggravation. I suggest you send copies to the chief executive of every airline and also to the Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Authority. SETH LERR Burbank

Thank you for your excellent article, "Blimey! Gate Is Crashed" on July 1. I had dutifully put in my time with the front page and the business section before coming to your article, and I laughed so hard I scared my dogs. ELIZABETH BALDWIN Fullerton

Thank you for the excellent article on Bill Ewing. I am sending copies to my legislators since you presented the facts so concisely and impartially. Hopefully, the article will make more people aware of the value of quality day care. PHYLLIS E. MORRISON Santa Monica

What a delight to see my favorite fruit featured in Carolynn Carreno's story ("Hot for Haas," SoCal Style, March 5). What a put-down for Dr. Rudolph Hass, who developed the variety, to find it referred to as the "Haas" twice and the "Hass" only once in the otherwise excellent article. Phil Henry Nipomo

Thank you for your excellent article on the "Politics of Fish Soup." (Oct. 14) Bouillabaisse is a passion of mine (is it strange to have such passions?), and your article was a welcome addition to my (limited) collection of information on the topic. I plan to visit our local Asian market this weekend and have at it. MONTE MACHIT, Cypress

Concerning Scott Ostler's column of June 30, headlined "Sudden Death Has New Meaning," Did Len Bias and Don Rogers die in vain? This excellent article should be photocopied and posted in every locker room, classroom and dorm bulletin board in the country. PHILLIP TORF Beverly Hills

A note to compliment writer Rosemary McClure for her excellent article, "The Ottoman Empire," June 13. The lighthearted but factual article gave an accurate picture of the semi-annual International Home Furnishings Market and the atmosphere in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. McClure's article clearly describes the experience of visiting the showrooms and shops when searching for furniture. Tom Tyson High Point, N.C. The Travel section welcomes comments and letters.

Thank you for the excellent article on Rose Pesotta ("Jewish Feminist Drew Latinas to Garment Union," Sept. 24). So much of the history of Los Angeles is told by its labor history; please publish more of these articles. And perhaps, someday, could we have a labor section--or at least a "Business & Labor" section? One side of any story is so dull. JOHN C. NEWBY Studio City

The Dec. 23 article "Funds Sought to Fix Historic Church" contained an error, which may seem slight, but historically is significant. The article stated that Santa Clara parish, in Oxnard, opened in 1877 " . . . with Mass spoken in English, Spanish and German to please all the Catholic worshipers." In fact, the Mass in Roman Catholic Churches has been said in Latin since approximately AD 400 until subsequent to the Second Vatican Council (circa 1962). I suspect the article was referring to the sermon which was typically given in the vernacular, depending upon the local language or custom.

Thank you for the article, "Asians from Latin America Find Haven in L.A." (cover story, Feb. 5.) With so many articles written about Hispanics, many of them either negative or just plain ignorant, I am grateful that you took the time to include this excellent article about one of the many diverse groups that make up the Hispanic population as a whole. I have always been surprised by the convoluted image that the media has of Hispanics. It certainly seems amazing that organizations whose job it is to inform do such a great job of misinforming.

Congratulations on your excellent article on the appointments by our new supervisor, Maria VanderKolk. In addressing the Downtown Rotary Club a week ago, she assured us she came into office as her own person, politically independent, owing no one. It was very enlightening to discover otherwise.

The recent excellent article "A Diamond in the Rough Sparkles" about Damon Bihm (Sports, May 15), dramatically illustrates the value of athletics and other worthwhile programs in shaping young lives, especially those from the inner city. Fairness decrees we mention that although Los Angeles City College Coach Dan Cowgill dropped Damon from the program, he reinstated him twice with the backing of Seattle Mariners scout Fate Young and sports agent Chuck Stone. If he hadn't been reinstated, the odds of him reaching Talladega College would have been remote.
