This is to commend Susan Christian for the objective article, "Born to Buck the Tide . " I hope this letter publicly shows support for the inspirational efforts of Jeanie Bernstein. Ms. Bernstein is that American (whom) President George Bush alluded to in his State of the Union Address . "Join the community of conscience. Do the hard work of freedom , " President Bush said. Well, hail to Jeanie for doing just that, and I regret that I have not had the conviction to get out there and be called an activist.

Thank you for publishing the very interesting interview by Susan Christian with Jeanie Bernstein, the Laguna Beach woman who has spent so many years protesting the war-making activities of our government (View, Jan. 30). I too belong to her generation and recognize how difficult it is to be always on the side that is opposed to violence. I deeply resent being accused of unpatriotism and not supporting our troops in the Persian Gulf because I am opposed to our government sending them there.

Jeanie Bernstein of Laguna Beach doesn't know if she'll be able to get within six blocks of President Bush on Friday, but the 79-year-old rabble-rouser is rounding up the posse and getting the protest signs ready. The president will be at a Dana Point fund-raiser on a mission from God, attempting the miracle of raising California GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill "Simple" Simon from the dead. Bernstein is attempting a miracle of her own.

Buoyed by hope that the county's financial woes could waylay plans for a toll road through Laguna Canyon, San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor opponents will continue protesting the project with a candlelight vigil here Friday. Although tollway builders say the road is not threatened by the fiscal crisis, some foes believe that Orange County's bankruptcy will make it harder--if not impossible--to finance the project.

Galvanized by the growing threat of war in the Persian Gulf, a coalition of Orange County peace activists Sunday staged a '60s-style anti-war protest, drawing about 400 people to Mile Square Park. Vietnam veterans, Palestinians, feminists and Gray Panthers--some wearing Middle Eastern scarves, tie-dyed T-shirts or camouflage hats--sat on the grass listening to folk songs and speakers urging the U.S.

Since December, a dozen or so women from Orange County have been gathering every Sunday evening around the coffee table in a Laguna Beach living room. With children in tow, they drive from Huntington Beach, Irvine and Newport Beach with a single mission in mind: Stop the San Joaquin Hills tollway.
