Thomas is a perfect example of why we need to proliferate a better understanding in this country of our Constitution. The Constitution is not the rights of the people granted by government, it is the rights of government granted by the people. Thus, Thomas is dead wrong when he says, "The fact is that tax exemption is a favor granted to religion by government . . ." The true fact is that the IRS is a favor granted by the people in the 16th Amendment of the Constitution. Thomas also states that "the IRS ought to investigate all ministries that use television to raise large amounts of money," as he suspects that abuses will be found in a few of the others.

Frank Gehry's doodle of the Walt Disney Concert Hall (Commentary, Oct. 22) reminded me of a Rorschach test. First I saw a man reading a newspaper with his hat on the left and cup of coffee on the right. Then I saw an inebriated Santa Claus lying on his back with Christmas gifts scattered about him. Further examination revealed two hands shaking on the right side. Or was it one hand lighting a banana with a match? Then I realized what this really is. It's not Gehry's design for WDCH. It's a pile of animation cells from old Disney cartoons!

. . . (He) turned his head and grinned and pointed and there, ahead, all he could see, as wide as all the world, great, high, and unbelievably white in the sun, was the square top of Kilimanjaro. And then he knew that there was where he was going. --Ernest Hemingway, "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" Jeffrey Scott struggled to make sense of his climb to the top of Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. The challenge, after all, was not so much the hardship but to overcome his handicap.

The City Council voted Tuesday to ask for a new trial for Harry M. Sassounian, an Armenian immigrant and former Pasadena resident convicted in 1982 of the assassination of Turkish diplomat Kemal Arikan in Los Angeles. The vote came after jailhouse informant Jeffrey Scott Busch said last week that he lied in court when he testified that Sassounian had confessed to the killing. Sassounian, now in state prison, has maintained his innocence.

I believe that Wilson did the right thing in vetoing this legislation. If gay people really believe in their cause--and if they really believe that the people of California are ready for them to come out of their closets--then they should put this legislative piece of garbage on the ballot and let the voters either accept or reject it.

I hope that (letter) writers Jackie Colleran and R. Jeffrey Scott (Viewpoint, Aug. 15) also feel that the likes of Lt. Col. Oliver North and Rear Adm. John Poindexter, who also received an education paid for by the American taxpayers, and then prostituted their integrity, commitment and obligation to the honor code of the military academies, and if you please, the Constitution of the United States, should shove off!

The warrant names Jeffrey Scott Hawn of Austin, Texas, who controls the ranch where the bison were shot. The bison were found in late March strewn across hundreds of snow-covered acres about 85 miles southwest of Denver.
