Barry Smedberg, who works with the homeless in the San Fernando and Antelope valleys, says the difficulties that former KTTV anchorwoman Jacki King experienced are only too real for legions of the homeless. There is only enough money to provide homeless people with a chance at a bed for a few nights in a shelter, according to Smedberg, who is Lutheran Social Services area director for the San Fernando and Antelope valleys.

Try as I might, I am unable to understand or justify your publication of Jacki King's self-serving piece. I, too, am 43 and have earned a living for most of my life as a writer. Like King, I have suffered my share of rejection letters and dry spells, but I have never lived on the streets. . . . In times of adversity, I have held more than my share of menial and unfulfilling jobs. It is obvious from King's feeble excuses for her failures that she sees herself as worthy of no less than a key anchor position on a major network.

A bunch of black people were discussing the plight of Jacki King and the general consensus was: Welcome to the real world that many, many blacks share without news headlines and without understanding from an "equal opportunity" system designed to crush the human spirit--regardless of race, color, creed or national origin. Thanks to the misfortune of Jacki King, and the very excellent story she told, a large number of white people in Southern California will begin to understand how the cards are literally stacked against poor folks.

Former KTTV-TV Channel 11 anchorwoman Jacki King, who was fired from the station in 1981 and related how she ended up bankrupt and homeless, is coming to your living room. She just sold her story, which originally appeared last year as a first-person account in The Times' View section, for "six figures." This according to producer Michael Viner (TV's "Windmills of the Gods"), who will produce a TV movie via his Dove Inc. and ITC Prods.

Re "Socialite Admits to Selling Drugs, Gets Jail Time," April 22: I can't help but wonder. If this Newport Beach socialite was a minority first-time offender from Long Beach, would this entire case have been handled differently? I believe so. Just when you think change has taken place in our society, you are given cause to think again. How sad. FRANK CHLARSON Corona del Mar Tina Schafnitz was arrested March 16 for selling cocaine. How many other drug arrests were made that day, and have been made since, in Orange County?
