The 2,230 identical, computer-printed letters (Dec. 8) from members of "Californians to Defeat Rose Bird" provided unintended symbolism of the kind of appellate judges Howard Jarvis' organization would like to foist upon the people of this state. If Howard Jarvis, state Sen. H. L. Richardson (R-Glendora), and other right-wing ideologues have their way, our Supreme Court will be packed with carbon-copy supporters of their political agenda. What is really under attack from the campaign to recall Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird, Joseph Grodin, Cruz Reynoso and Stanley Mosk is not the court's decisions but the independence and integrity of our judiciary.

It comes as no particular surprise that state Sen. H. L. Richardson (R-Glendora) will not rest until there is a holster under every shoulder and a weapon in every holster. The surprise is that so many other senators seem ready to go along with his dream. At issue is a loophole in the 1968 Public Records Act that until last October let law-enforcement agencies shield from the public their lists of people with permits to carry concealed weapons.

We applaud your editorial (June 12), "Crippling Family Planning," which supported the successful state family-planning program and opposed the amendments proposed by Sen. H. L. Richardson (R-Glendora). You were absolutely correct in pointing out that his amendments would severely cripple the program. Currently, the Office of Family Planning (OFP) reimburses health agencies, per patient, for contraceptive care after service has been rendered to eligible women and men (voluntary sterilization)

Republican Sen. H.L. Richardson, accused of trying to intimidate legislators who refuse to tell him if they support Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird, was denounced Thursday for failing to declare his own position on issues by frequently missing Senate votes. "I'd like to know how he would have voted on some of the crucial issues had he been here on the floor," complained Sen.

The military is waging war against Sen. Alan Cranston's plan to protect millions of acres of the Mojave Desert where troops train and experimental planes fly. The Democratic senator wants the National Park Service to protect 4.3 million acres of California desert from the ravages of off-road vehicles, mining, and oil and gas exploration. His bill, currently before the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, would have no direct effect on 3.

One day in May, 1985, Elaine Humlen, a divorced single mother of two who works as a saleswoman in Whittier, experienced what she now calls "D-day." Her children disappeared--and she was accused of child abuse. The day before, according to Humlen, her son, age 9, had been playing baseball in the front yard when he was hit on the nose with the ball. "He didn't come in crying and it didn't leave much of a mark, so I didn't think much of it," she said.
