In the midst of his latest project, veteran screenwriter and director Jerry Freedman realized that he would need a big prison riot scene. No problem. He peopled a sprawling complex of buildings with hundreds of armed and crazed convicts, sent them rummaging for psychotropic drugs in the prison pharmacy, scattered bonfires in the halls and flooded the floors with sewage.

As I read "Plan for Arts Campus Questioned" (Sept. 28), I could not help but think about the L.A. Unified School District high school that I have taught in for 17 years. The Downtown Magnets High School appears to be a "secret" school, a mere five blocks west of Grand on Temple. Although we have been there for over 20 years, we are the stepchild of the building boom in the LAUSD. This is particularly strange, since our major focus is our business magnet, which emphasizes finance, accounting and entrepreneurship.

Your Jan. 25 editorial regarding the dearth of regional talent that has led many Hollywood executives to recruit as far away as India made me furious. One of the jewels of Southern California is the L.A. County High School for the Arts, located slightly closer than the Indian subcontinent (the campus of Cal State L.A). It is perhaps the premier arts high school in the nation. The number of winners in the national Arts Recognition talent search is astounding--more than some entire states, and this from a school of only 500 students.

As one who finds Linda Gradstein's reporting on National Public Radio to be extremely biased against Israel, I was surprised that your article on her reporting ("Caught in the Middle," Feb. 23) pictured her as evenhanded. From my perspective, her reports usually feature Palestinian victims of the intifada speaking for themselves in anguished tones, while Israeli victims are much less likely to be given air time. If one wants to hear a variety of Palestinian leaders spew forth anti-Israeli invective, Gradstein's reports are the only nationwide broadcast in which they are heard so regularly.

The Los Angeles school district has received a check for $170,016.40 from the Department of Water and Power for agreeing to install energy-efficient heat-pump air conditioners and heaters at 27 campuses. "The school district used gas boilers before this and they used a lot more energy," said DWP spokesman Jerry Freedman Habush. "These new units use electricity," he said. "It's more cost-efficient. The same system used to heat the schools is used to cool them.

Regarding the Times article "Tour Revisits Roots of Jewish L.A." that ran July 23: Andrea Heiman's great article has the phones ringing off the hook here and we greatly appreciate it, of course. There was, however, one inadvertent inaccuracy. The Jewish L.A. tour was correctly attributed to the University of Judaism, the event's sponsor, but is not one of the university's regular monthly tours. The guided visit to old neighborhoods is offered monthly by the Jewish Historical Society.

More than 100 Southern California high school students, including some from eight Westside schools, will meet in the San Bernardino Mountains Sunday to discuss race relations, sexism and homophobia. The weeklong camp, called Brotherhood/Sisterhood USA, is sponsored by the National Conference of Christians and Jews. Students from about 30 Southern California high schools will address racial stereotypes, gender issues, homophobic attitudes and cultural differences that can cause tension.

"Safer Option for Civil Rights" (editorial, Feb. 2) stated that "spontaneous applause greeted President Bush's State of the Union mention that 'key provisions of the Patriot Act are set to expire next year.' " In your strong opposition to the extension of the Patriot Act you selectively quoted additional statements by the president. What you failed to do is quote the most powerful statement he made in support of its extension, namely that although key portions of the Patriot Act are set to expire next year, terrorists' plans are on no such schedule.
