Re "Interior Needs a Free Market Approach," Commentary, Jan. 23: Trying to justify the nomination of anti-environmentalist Gale Norton for secretary of the Interior, James Huffman claims her opponents would be "hard pressed to explain why those nations with the worst environmental records are consistently those with little or no respect for private property." I think Huffman would be even more hard pressed to explain why those with the greatest environmental records, our Native American Indians, had practically no concept of "private property."

In a plea bargain with federal prosecutors, an Egyptian-born rocket scientist pleaded guilty Friday to attempting to smuggle out highly sophisticated missile components to the military of his native country. As Abdelkader Helmy switched his plea to guilty to a single charge in a multicount indictment, U.S. District Judge Raul A. Ramirez noted that Helmy may be required to testify against unspecified officials of the Egyptian government. During questioning of Helmy, the jurist told him, without elaboration, "You could be called on to testify against agents and high-ranking authorities of the Egyptian government."

The United States is expected to continue its close cooperative relationship with Egypt despite criminal charges against two Egyptian army colonels and three American accomplices accused of trying to steal U.S. ballistic missile technology, an Administration official said Saturday. "This certainly causes some tension and you are always surprised when something like this happens," the official said.

YREKA, Calif. - Farmers, ranchers and onetime loggers were among those who packed a church community room here in August to listen to a former state lawmaker convey his vision of a cleaved - and more governable - California.
