All that marathon coverage and not one word about wheelchairs? Sixteen column inches covering Channel 13's ineptness and not one word from The Times about the wheelchairs? Wow! JIM BABBITT Manhattan Beach

The Getty people, with our blessing, spent $1 billion on land and facilities and, in one year, bought three old oil paintings ranging in price from $22.5 million to $26 million (June 21). Down the hill, 10 miles in any direction, children go to bed hungry, live in cars, garages and roach-infested tenements, go to school in hot, overcrowded, rundown buildings, and study worn-out textbooks. Gangs of dropped-out, teenage thugs terrorize whole neighborhoods. Something is very wrong with our value and priority systems.

Jim Babbitt of Manhattan Beach writes (March 11) to complain, "all that marathon coverage and not one word about wheelchairs." While he may be unhappy with print coverage, he should know that during the course of six hours of coverage, KNX Newsradio provided: a live interview with the defending wheelchair division champion; live coverage of the start of the wheelchair race, coverage of the winner crossing the line, and minutes later, a live interview...

As the opening day of the Getty Center draws near, it is not surprising that some people, seeing the immense amount money that went into it, will assert that this money was somehow stolen from hungry children, or underfunded schools or whatever. If you extend the chain of cause and effect far enough, there is some validity to their complaints. However, Jim Babbitt's characterization of the Getty purchases as "three old oil paintings" (letter, July 3) shows a lack of appreciation for the value of cultural institutions.

My reaction to Mayor Richard Riordan's endorsement of plans to expand Los Angeles International Airport is one of abject horror. As outlined in The Times (March 5), the mayor backs a proposal to increase passenger capacity from 60 million passengers a year to 100 million at a cost of about $10 billion. Please, Mr. Mayor, consider the effect on traffic. I work near the airport, commuting on the 405 Freeway from the Valley. Usually it takes me a long hour and 10 minutes to get home after work.

Yankees 1, sportswriters 0. Steinbrenner 1, sportswriters 0. Strawberry 1, sportswriters 0. Aren't you guys a little embarrassed yet? JIM BABBITT Manhattan Beach A guy pitches only 3 1/3 innings, two of them ineffectively, and he's the MVP of a six-game World Series? Get serious. In Game 5, the only two outs John Wetteland got were great defensive plays by the shortstop and right fielder on hard-hit balls. In Game 6, the Braves got more than a third of their hits and half of their runs off Wetteland and he barely survived.
