Please tell both David Gelernter ("Adrift in a sea of phoniness," Opinion, Oct. 14) and Jonathan Chait ("Look who's smearing the right," Opinion, Oct. 14) to stop writing columns cursing the darkness and start trying to light a few candles. If I were an English teacher, I'd hand back both columns ungraded and tell them I'd refuse to accept further work unless it had some content. Both columns sounded like they were written by spiteful 8-year-olds. JIM STEIN Redondo Beach

Call me an old-fashioned curmudgeon, but I don't want my tax dollars used to teach UCLA students about "theater as a projection of political power" (March 5). I want my tax dollars used to teach UCLA students something of value. The humanities and the physical and social sciences might be good places to start. JIM STEIN

Re "Bucking for an Advantage," Feb. 27: There is an alternative to spending ungodly sums of money on athletic coaches, camps and sports psychologists. This alternative will greatly increase the child's chances of obtaining a scholarship or becoming a professional, it will improve the child's self-esteem and will be of lasting benefit to both the child and society. It's called studying. JIM STEIN Redondo Beach

If Lenny Dykstra feels that being late for spring training means that he is not obligated to stop for children crossing intersections (Newswire, Aug. 23), let us fervently hope that, if the Phillies are ever fortunate enough to make it to the World Series, Mr. Dykstra sets his alarm clock and is sober enough to hear it.

The only thing better than the long-hoped-for revival of Science File (published Thursdays) would be the complete substitution of the Science File, on a daily basis, for O.J. Simpson trial coverage. I objected strenuously when you removed the science page from the paper several years ago. Thank you for restoring it. Your first presentation was superb. JIM STEIN Marina del Rey Thank you for instituting the weekly Science File. I love the format and the subject matter.

Before Mike Piazza claimed team diversity impeded winning, he might have checked Dodger history. The Boys of Summer overcame deep racial bias, hate mail and death threats associated with Jackie Robinson and won championships. SHEL KAPLAN Rancho Palos Verdes Thank you, Mike Piazza, for doing in one interview what I have been trying to do in the last year while teaching seventh- and eighth-graders. You made it perfectly obvious why they should not look up to sports figures as heroes.

It is not Bob Knight that should be our object of interest: It is his supporters who feed off his hatred and anger. It is obvious to these supporters that a majority of African American families will not subject their children to his potential victimization. In the eyes of Knight's admirers his most recent noteworthy accomplishment is that he features white players. It is the bigotry that Knight generates, not his behavior, which should be of concern. LEE FINEMAN Sherman Oaks Yes, these "Lords of Discipline" are out of step with America today.

Re "Armey's Remarks Assailed," Sept. 25: House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas), speaking at an event in Florida, was quoted by a local paper as saying: "I always see two Jewish communities in America: one of deep intellect and one of shallow, superficial intellect. "Conservatives have a deeper intellect and tend to have occupations of the brain in fields like engineering, science and economics," Armey said, while liberals flock to "occupations of the heart." It would seem that Rep. Armey is the exception to the rule.
