Wearing a baseball cap, thongs and a Hawaiian shirt under his gray sports jacket, John Boag sat casually in front of the video camera he had set up himself in a studio at Paragon Cable. "I want to talk to you about the assassination of John Lennon," he said earnestly, staring directly into the whirring, unmanned camera. "Is it incidental that (Lennon's killer) Mark Chapman is a fundamentalist Christian? I don't think so."

A police captain won a $5,000 defamation judgment Monday against a city gadfly who last year accused him of breaking nearly a dozen laws while acting as the department's public information officer. The judgment in Orange County Superior Court ends more than a year of bitter conflict between city activist John Boag and Capt. Charles Poe.

Complaints about a controversial Unocal oil-processing plant in the Huntington Harbour area have again been brought to the City Council. Mary Gray told the council on Tuesday that she moved from her home near the plant last summer because both she and her daughter became ill from fumes. Her daughter, then 15 months old, suffered a seizure, Gray said.

What is misconduct? Misconduct is two Orange County supervisors watching the county go down the tube, and a judge calling them the good guys and the district attorney the culprit ("Misconduct Charges Against Stanton and Steiner Dismissed," Nov. 27). KEITH BOILLOT Santa Ana Regarding the dismissal of charges against Supervisors Roger R. Stanton and William G. Steiner, we have now seen first hand that it is better to spend over $200,000 of taxpayers' money for your defense than to use the public defender when you are accused of some misdeed.

Re "Initiative Effort OKd to Allow Bible as a Literature Textbook," Jan. 6: Just when you think the news can't get any more ridiculous, along comes Secretary of State Kevin Shelley's comments that allowing the Bible to be read as part of public school literature would be study "without devotional or denominational purpose." And to top it off, the state would be expected to pay about $200 million to fund this insanity. The separation of church and state is specific in its definition and intent; people trying to subvert it are always pushing their own religious agenda in their attempt to impose their religious beliefs on others.

I'm afraid Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi is wrong when he says that Orange County is "not Chicago." For when it comes to the Republican bosses' control of the Republican candidates here in Orange County, it practically puts Chicago politics to shame. Now, under present big-money Republican bosses here in Orange County, true conservatism is out the window and extremist right-wing dogma is in. We should all thank God that we have Capizzi as district attorney since he has shown himself to be a moral person by impartially doing the job he was elected for. Let's hope that Capizzi continues to do a thorough job in finding out who was the person, or persons, directing all of this felonious chicanery from above.

You recent articles regarding hate crimes and skinhead activity in Huntington Beach should come as no surprise to residents of this city and county. When our elected leaders support and encourage legislation blaming and discrediting minorities, this type of behavior is endorsed. When city leaders spend much of their time demeaning public employees and inciting public anger, positive role modeling fails to exist. When city leaders care more about carnivals and festivals than quality-of-life issues, we are left with the remnants.
