The convention season has begun the same way it has in most recent years, with a plethora of articles and seminars decrying the broadcast media news divisions' lack of extensive live coverage. David Shaw's column "Political Coverage Is Unconventional" (July 25) goes as far as to argue this may be why Americans don't vote in greater and greater numbers. People don't vote if they don't care or feel their issues will never get addressed. The networks have been covering this race for a year already.

As a guest actress on sitcoms from "Friends" to "Frasier" and "According to Jim" to "Murphy Brown," I beg to differ: My experiences on each of these quality shows were filled with fun, humor and a wonderful feeling of camaraderie and collective creativity among the actors and all those working behind the camera.
