Re "The right way to reform," Opinion, Jan. 19 Jonah Goldberg repeats a lie that's going to be repeated a whole lot more in this election year, namely that the Democrats are "vexed" because they are "lacking any other ideas." GOP corruption and incompetence deserve to be screamed about. Operating secret torture chambers is certainly a new idea in this country, but is it a good one? The Democrats have the same ideas they've had for many years: fairness and opportunity for the little guy, protection for the environment, national healthcare, development of alternative energy sources, the rule of civil law, the separation of church and state, checks and balances.

Re "Pit Bulls Out of the Doghouse," Column One, Aug. 3 The problem with pit bulls -- at least purebreds -- is that they don't recognize anyone or anything else as being "alpha." That means you, your kids, other dogs, grizzly bears or charging rhinos. They seem to believe, much as humans do, that they stand at the zenith of evolution. They're wonderful, sweet dogs until the day they aren't. When that day comes, you'd better have a gun on your hip. ROBERT BORDEN Jemez Springs, N.M. I have had four pit bulls over the years -- all wonderfully amusing and loving pets.

Jemez, N.M. IT was sundown, and the elk were active. We rounded a turn, startling a magnificent pair of bucks, each sporting enormous antlers. They crisscrossed the road ahead as if they were leading us down the slope into the Valle Grande, the largest of several valleys that lie among the volcanic domes of Valles Caldera National Preserve. We stopped at the edge of the wide valley to watch them descend. Below we could see at least 1,000 elk scattered in herds across the meadows.

A Los Angeles judge Tuesday ordered the release of secret church files on a late Orange County priest convicted of molesting children, ruling the documents show that "priests with known sexual proclivities have been handed off from one location to another without regard to the potential harm" to children.

Lee Harris of Burbank saw an alcoholic holiday beverage that was obviously tailored for Southern California imbibers. Its name: Smogg Nog. (Smogg Nog Alert: Don't drink too much or everything will look hazy. Well, hazier.) * MARTHA'S NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS! Betty Laslo of Palm Springs notes that the ever-fastidious Martha Stewart would be horrified to see a typo in her cookie recipe that lists "flower" as one of the ingredients (see accompanying).
