"Outraged" is the word for my feelings while reading of how Palm Springs shows its indifference to California's water needs as it blithely constructs more and more lakes, lagoons, waterfalls and pools at the expense of the rest of us who are being asked to conserve. Are we conserving for Palm Springs? "Outraged" also describes my feelings about The Times as it hypocritically preaches environmental concerns and water conservation on its editorial pages while at the same time, in its Travel Section, it provides color pictures and other glamorous hype for Palm Springs and its obscene water usage policy.

In regard to Baker's article, he conveys my feelings perfectly. I'm probably more grizzled than Baker, having followed Bruce up and down the Jersey shore during my high school years. Now 16 years later, with all the world beating on Bruce's door, there is that bittersweet mixture of good feelings for Bruce's success and the urge to tell all these new-found fans to take a hike. I guess the bottom line is that we have to accept what has occurred and hope Bruce doesn't face the backlash of all the current hype.

Thanks for publishing the powerful short story "In the Middle End" (by Larry Fondation, May 7). The text has a remarkable rhythm with its near absence of punctuation, making it breathless as it hammers in the feelings of hope and hopelessness experienced by this homeless man in his quest for a life.

It was particularly gratifying not only to see coverage of some of the issues facing lesbian students as a group, but also to read about the individual women's thoughts and feelings. This added human touch was very effective and much appreciated. MICHAEL SHERE Los Angeles

I am totally supportive of the column by Christopher Martin ("We Who Object Must Be Heard," Commentary, Nov. 16). I couldn't have expressed my feelings any better being a member of that "insignificant" peace movement. Yes, a peace movement exists! Are you listening, President Bush? GRETCHEN WALLS, Wilmington

Betty Martin's recent article, "On a Balloon in the Stockholm Sky" (Sept. 18), reflects my adventure five years ago over Del Mar, Calif. Martin captured my feelings at the time and refreshed my memory of a delightful experience. It was nice reading her article. BETTY FERGUSON SANGL Glendale
