Regarding "Verdict against Lay is erased," Oct. 18: Our laws say that a person is innocent until proved guilty. The late Kenneth L. Lay was proved guilty by a jury of his peers. Therefore, it seems to me that now he is guilty until proved innocent. Julian Keithahn San Juan Capistrano

The heartbeat quickens. The throat tightens. The tears come. I'm reacting to the news of the U.S. attack on Libya. We have become that which we loathe and fear. Terrorists kill innocent people. We kill innocent people. God help us, I fail to see the difference. SKIP PEDIGO Huntington Beach

In the U.S. you are innocent until proven guilty. But in Senate confirmation hearings, you are guilty until proven innocent--especially if you have been nominated by a Republican President. ARTHUR MARX, Los Angeles

Fein's column is specious, if not a classic example of newspeak. Dreyfus was innocent; North, by his own admission, was guilty. DAVID M. SHERR Santa Monica

What an ironic abuse of terms in the headline, "The Rescue of Roe vs. Wade!" Rescuing has to do with saving lives. Abortion consists in destroying lives--innocent human lives! RALPH WEISHAAR Malibu

Re " 'We're Going to Rush the Hijackers,' " Sept. 13: As I lie awake grieving for each and every precious life lost in the attacks on Sept. 11, my mind keeps returning to the passengers on the plane over Pennsylvania. Faced with the ultimate terror of the moment, they chose to vote about how to respond. Standing by the very democratic principles that were under attack, they apparently chose to fight. Countless others' lives were surely saved by their actions. I thank them for being not just heroes, but Americans.

Your article on the anniversary of the Miranda decision overly concerned itself with the effect of Miranda on convictions of those who have committed crimes. We must never forget that the true importance of Miranda and the Fifth Amendment is the protection of the rights of the innocent. Without the Miranda warnings, the very true danger exists that the innocent, in a frightening environment and under intense questioning by experienced policemen, will break down and admit to committing crimes they did not commit.
