Those of us who have endured the same pain as Spiegelman can only try and understand his pain-- a pain that will last forever. It's a tragic loss for anyone when a loved one dies, but when a father loses a daughter or son, especially when that loss was a waste, is it any wonder why more people haven't reacted as Jack Spiegelman did? None of us I would hope have the desire to take revenge on another. Isn't it time our judiciary and lawmakers get off their behinds and pass the legislation that the majority wants.

These are the two opposing views that relate to the L.A. City College/Korean driving range issue (March 26). First off, as a responsible member of the community, and one deeply committed to any project that serves the needs of higher education, I deplore the pointless and worthless intentions of this enterprise. But I am also a golfer and, as a golfer, what I have to say is, "Looking good!" Jack Spiegelman Los Angeles

A Los Angeles-area building contractor who shot and wounded his daughter's killer during a court hearing here last year was ordered to serve 5,000 hours of community service and five years' probation Wednesday after impassioned testimony by parents of other murder victims. Superior Court Judge Laurence Kay imposed the penalty on Jack Spiegelman, 49, after listening to two hours of often-emotional testimony.

I was happy to read Thomas Bonk's column about the brutal schedules of these guys on the PGA Tour -- condemned by a cruel fate to make their living playing golf. Somehow I had the simple-minded notion that Couples, Davis Love, Mark O'Meara, et al., were just the usual bunch of spoiled, over-indulged multi-zillionaires whose every need was tended to at once by a small army of caddies, nannies, personal assistants, corporate sponsors, golf equipment reps, etc. But now the true story reveals itself: It's hell out there!

This is my NBA fantasy: The season resumes . . . and the fans fail to return. The fans stage a lockout for the remaining 40 games, plus playoffs. There are no fans. This will never happen, of course. Why not? Because the fans are chumps. No matter how much contempt and scorn and lack of respect they are showered with on the part of players and owners, they always return for more. JACK SPIEGELMAN, Los Angeles It figures. The Clippers are unbeaten . . . and they still won't make the playoffs.

Jack Spiegelman, who shot and wounded his daughter's accused murderer in a San Francisco courtroom two weeks ago, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges. Spiegelman, 47, dressed in a light gray suit and free on $25,000 bail, appeared with his ex-wife and parents for the brief hearing before San Francisco Municipal Judge David Garcia. Daniel D. Morgan, still recovering from the bullet wounds, faces trial for the March, 1983, murder of Spiegelman's teen-age daughter, Sarah.

Re "Reversing the charges," Column, April 24 The president is right to put heat on the credit card companies for the various ways they are ripping off people. But who put these meatheads in that position to begin with? If people paid their credit cards off on time every month -- in full -- they wouldn't be having these problems. It's called money management. Jack Spiegelman Los Angeles :: Finally, after decades of cardholders getting ripped off by idiotic rate hikes, we might be turning the tables on the greedy, money-grubbing credit barons.

Thank you for the essay by Jack Spiegelman about a wonderful person named Lois ("Miracle Manor," May 13). Her full name was Lois Blackhill, and I was fortunate enough to have worked with her in the early '80s at Two Bunch Palms Resort and Spa in Desert Hot Springs. There are some things that happen in life that leave a lasting impression. Lois was that way for me. She was magical and ageless, just as Spiegelman stated. I was doing massages for a living, and Lois was doing facials. These were not ordinary facials, but spiritual healings.

While none of us condone what our friend and colleague, Jack Spiegelman did, in the San Fernando courtroom, we can certainly understand his frustration with the criminal justice system, which consistently ignores the victims of crime. The government made a promise to victims of crime in exchange for giving up their right to seek justice themselves. The government promised to protect them and represent them in the prosecution of their attacker, should they become victimized. The government has breached this contract with the victims of crime.
