Everybody probably knows someone that owns one. A friend, neighbor or loved one. No, not guns. I'm talking about diesel cars! You're driving down the street and black, pungent diesel exhaust is choking everybody behind the filthy beast. Sell your stinky diesel to someone moving to New York. And while you're at it, stop walking your dog on my yard. PETE (FUZZY) HUBBELL Redondo Beach

Yes, Randy Harvey, If Mark O'Meara hadn't made those birdies on the last holes . . . If Fred Couples had hit more bad tee shots . . . If David Duval had broken his leg Sunday morning . . . If Jim Furyk had forgotten to set his alarm . . . If Paul Azinger had to take radiation treatment Sunday . . . If Jack Nicklaus' back was too painful . . . If David Toms had never taken up golf . . . If Darren Clarke had made an extra bogey...

I was greatly disturbed by Steven Heller's photography of the courageous Diane Hinton and her family in "One Last Chance" (by Linda Marsa, Oct. 20). His photos made it look as if Diane were gazing at us from beyond the grave, and did not reflect her upbeat, I-am-a-fighter approach to life. I kept referring to the photos while reading, and I was jarred constantly by the dichotomy. Why portray her as a fuzzy apparition while she is in the throes of the most intense living she has ever done?

There's no room in this Administration for an honest man of integrity who didn't have the courage to ignore the old-fashioned ideas of President Harry Truman who said, "The buck stops here." Poindexter, whose character is more in line with Reagan's expectations, might be a little "fuzzy" in recalling Truman's famous declaration. However, it's quite possible that deceased CIA Director William Casey, in one final patriotic effort to keep this nation's secrets forever secure, took the buck with him. LAWRENCE BERK Ventura

Leave it to the post-Conceptualist Appropriationist and law-abiding subversive Sherrie Levine to rationally embrace the absence of originality as an artistic movement far superior to creating your own ideas ("Sherrie Levine and the Art of the Remake," by Kristine McKenna, Nov. 17). Let's all have fun contaminating art history by copying original ideas repetitively until the original source becomes so degraded it will become a fuzzy new form of post-Conceptualist Appropriationist minimalist reductivism abstraction.

A paramedic was charged in an alleged scheme to extort $25 million from actor John Travolta after his son died of a seizure at the family's Grand Bahama vacation home. Tarino Lightbourne, 47, pleaded not guilty to charges of attempting to extort and conspiracy to extort. Details remained fuzzy, but prosecutor Bernard Turner said investigators are looking for a "certain document" and police say it involves $25 million. Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater was arrested Thursday and charged with abetment to extort and conspiracy to extort, and was released on $40,000 bail.
