Re "Joyful Kosovo awaits freedom," Feb. 17 Serbia will never accept the loss of Kosovo -- the spiritual Jerusalem of the Serbs. The West is destroying international law to create a "greater Albania" at Serbian expense by illegally recognizing Kosovo so that it can have a permanent and expensive base for NATO in Kosovo. It is thus demonstrating to what lengths it will go to achieve its foreign policy objectives. Similar to the illegal bombing of Serbia in 1999 and the subsequent illegal invasion of Iraq, the illegal recognition of the phony Islamic state of Kosovo (which will never be recognized by the United Nations as a legitimate nation)

Question: My homeowner association board hired attorneys to rewrite the bylaws, which as a result are now longer and more complex and incomprehensible than our CC&Rs. No homeowners voted on these changes. We didn't even know changes took place until a year later when the document was circulated. This year I noticed a section in the new bylaws: "Approval of IRS Resolution. The board may approve an IRS Resolution that any excess income for the current year shall be applied to the next fiscal year, as provided by IRS Revenue Ruling 70-604.

There is an obvious note of anti-Hispanic bigotry in the way you treat the vandal Robbie Conal (Times, July 21) compared to the way you treat vandals with cans of spray paint. Conal vandalizes private and public property by pasting his crude posters. The graffiti vandals deface property by spraying paint. The graffiti vandals (rightly) receive The Times' condemnation. By contrast, in your Q & A with Conal, the tone is bootlicking, simpering and dishonest. You entirely ignore the fact that Conal received his fame by vandalizing other people's property.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a challenge to California's policy of granting reduced, in-state tuition at its colleges and universities to graduates of its high schools who are illegal immigrants. The justices turned down an appeal from lawyers for a conservative immigration-law group that contended "preferential treatment" for illegal immigrants violated federal immigration law. They cited a little-known provision in a 1986 law that barred states from giving "any postsecondary benefit" to an "alien who is not lawfully present in the United States ?

President Reagan claims it's perfectly natural that he can't remember whether he authorized arms shipments to Iran in 1985; after all, who remembers what they did on a specific date a year and a half ago. What a load of bull! While it is true that it is difficult to remember one's specific actions on any given date, any reasonably competent person would remember authorizing or performing illegal actions, or secret actions that go against publicly declared Administration policies.

Re "Testimony leads to renewed calls for Gonzales' departure," May 18 Isn't it obvious by now that Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales needs to be removed from office? Congress needs to take actions beyond a no-confidence vote. He has abused the power of his office and cannot be allowed to continue his lies, deceit and illegal actions.

Congratulations and thanks to the district attorney's office for obtaining the first "guilty" [pleas] in the Scott Baugh investigation. Surely they are close--so very close--to laying out a complete conspiracy case revealing how Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, Assembly Speaker Curt Pringle and supporters developed the plan. It is now clear that Baugh is in the Assembly probably as a result of these illegal actions, and that consequently Pringle was able to capture the Assembly speakership probably through related illegal actions.

People in Santa Ana expressed a mix of sadness and differing degrees of condemnation Tuesday for Ted R. Moreno, the youngest councilman in city history who went from promising populist to convicted felon in two tumultuous terms. "I'm really disappointed," said Mario Valencia, a high school friend of Moreno's who contributed money to the councilman's legal defense fund earlier this year. "I am just shocked. All in all, he was a great guy. I didn't want to believe the charges."

The nation's two largest health insurers have been pressuring employees to lobby against healthcare reform in Congress in violation of a California law against coerced political activity, a consumer group alleged Wednesday. Consumer Watchdog in Santa Monica has asked California Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown to investigate its claim that UnitedHealth Group and WellPoint Inc. pushed workers to write their elected officials, attend town hall meetings and enlist family and friends to ensure an overhaul that matches their interests.

A long-awaited audit released Tuesday blames San Diego's pension fund debacle on mismanagement and illegal financial manipulations that recall the fiscal crises of Orange County and Enron Corp. The 266-page report concludes that some former city and pension board officials violated state and federal laws in their ill-advised pursuit of short-term solutions for a pension fund deficit that now approaches $2 billion.

The Israeli Labor Ministry announced plans today to crack down on 60,000 Palestinians working in the Jewish state illegally and free their jobs for unemployed Israelis. Some government officials said privately that the purpose was to punish Palestinians for the 17-month-old uprising against Israeli rule. Criticism came from within the government and from liberal legislators. Shimon Peres, finance minister and deputy prime minister, told Israel radio that expelling workers would cause economic problems for Palestinians and would inflame the uprising.

Regulators accused 82 people and companies Tuesday of earning more than $12 million in illicit profits on a series of microcap stock scams, including several in Orange County. The crackdown, in which the Securities and Exchange Commission filed 26 complaints and other enforcement actions across the country, targeted an array of people--from promoters who touted the stocks to boiler-room-style brokerages to accountants and lawyers who allegedly filed bogus documents.

A controversial court injunction may have reduced violent crime in the San Fernando Valley's Blythe Street neighborhood but contributed to its spread into nearby communities, according to a report released Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California. Gang injunctions do not mitigate crime and therefore should be abandoned as a tactic, according to the 45-page report, "False Premise, False Promise: The Blythe Street Gang Injunction and Its Aftermath."
