Regarding the review of the Denver-Kansas City game on Monday, Sept. 17, is Larry Stewart on the NFL payroll or is he blind? A couple of thrills at the end do not make up for a poorly coached, poorly played, poorly announced and now poorly reviewed game. HERBERT MILLER, Hermosa Beach

A plaque intended to honor black actor James Earl Jones at a Florida celebration of the life of Martin Luther King Jr. instead paid tribute to James Earl Ray, the man who killed the black civil rights leader, officials said Wednesday. The plaque's designer made the error, said Gerald Wilcox, owner of Lauderhill-based Adpro, which ordered the plaque. It was being corrected for Jones' visit to the Fort Lauderdale suburb Saturday. "We were very upset," said Wilcox.

REGARDING the comment by Arthur Frommer: "Most of QM2's inside cabins don't have windows" ["Live Large on QM2, Except for the Cabin," On a Budget, Dec. 17]: Could he give us an example or two of inside cabins with windows?

I sincerely commend your two-part series on AIDS and the press, an assessment that thoughtfully points up the role of the media in controlling the spread of this terrible pestilence. But I fail to see how more aggressive investigation of the dispute between Drs. Robert Gallo and Luc Montagnier could have resulted in " . . . many lives . . . saved." Isn't it time that the public and the press realize that the only reason the mortality rate for patients with AIDS is only 62% is that the epidemic has yet to run its course?
