Re "Keynesian trillions," editorial, Jan. 29 President Bush would have us believe that making his tax cuts permanent would be a magic elixir for the economy. But if his tax cuts so far have been such a great thing for the economy, why do we appear to be heading into a serious recession? John Grula Pasadena

I applaud Vice President Al Gore and Russian Prime Minister Sergei Kiriyenko in their efforts to reduce nuclear dangers (July 25). Gore's emphasis on the Russian Duma's ratification of the START II treaty, so talks can begin on a third agreement to further reduce strategic nuclear arms, is of crucial importance. Just how crucial is illustrated by the revelation that retired general and now regional governor Alexander Lebed has threatened to take control of the nuclear weapons deployed in his Siberian province.

The press, including The Times, recently reported on the commissioning ceremonies for a new U.S. nuclear-powered attack submarine named after Pasadena. In ready compliance with the Navy's public relations campaign, several Pasadena-area dignitaries attended the commissioning ceremonies. Mayor William Thomson, Vice Mayor Jess Hughston, Director John Crowley and Rep. Carlos J. Moorhead (R-Glendale) were all on hand to bestow their blessings on the sub. Thomson's remarks that Pasadena is "fortunate" and "honored" to have the submarine named after it have met with favorable editorial response by one local newspaper.

I enjoyed Suzanne Lummis' tribute to Charles Bukowski (April 10). Thank you for publishing it. I attended the March 26 event at Arundel. For another take on what happened that evening, please note the enclosed poem. The Wake Buk died and Andernach slept another day and the wake was held at a bookstore and maybe 3 poets and 30 typists and 300 secret poets showed up only two drunks showed up and one of them was dead and they read oh God how they read the tall one read the fat one read the long-haired the disheveled the despondent the joyous the terrified the ex-lover and mother of his child they all read and some called him "bue-kowski" and some called him "boo-kowski" and they kept reading they kept putting it out over the radio waves they kept it up for hours and through it all there seemed to be someone up into the ceiling somewhere, like a raging vapor there was much shouting and cursing (I heard this)

Re "Playing the lunatic card," News Analysis, April 5 North Korea acts like it has nothing to lose - because it has nothing to lose. When you starve and horribly mistreat your own people, and when you keep repeating the same careless behavior and expect a different outcome, that is lunacy, pure and simple. We all know that lunacy can be dangerous and often lethal. The young and up-until-now untested North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will learn that his nuclear and long-range missile threats will have long-term consequences that will completely overwhelm his weak and undernourished nation.

Bouncing Back--Rep. Matthew G. Martinez (D-Monterey Park) says his name has been dragged into the congressional check-cashing scandal only because the House bank was so poorly run. Martinez said he wrote four checks in late November, 1989, that were postdated Dec. 1, but were mailed early and landed at the bank without quite enough money on deposit to cover them. The checks totaled $1,197.83, he said, and he had $1,162.44 in the bank, or about $37 less than he needed.

Congratulations to Frank del Olmo for his excellent article (Commentary, April 3) about the U.S. Army's infamous School of the Americas (SOA) at Ft. Benning, Ga. This school is just as guilty as the CIA for the recently reported atrocities in Guatemala. And the SOA's connection to gross human rights violations certainly does not end with Guatemala. As Del Olmo correctly asserts, it is difficult to think of a coup or human rights outrage in Latin America over the last 40 years which has not involved graduates of the SOA. I join him in encouraging Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-Mass.

Rep. Carlos J. Moorhead attributes his political longevity to a mix of common sense and service to constituents. Add to that a campaign fund that is routinely 10 times greater than his nearest opponent's and you have a representative who has virtually coasted to victory every two years since 1972. Moorhead (R-Glendale) is now seeking election to an 11th term in the 22nd Congressional District, which, with only minor boundary changes, will be re-designated the 27th District in January.

Northeastern Los Angeles County voters returned seven veteran congressmen to Washington, but the incumbents' margins of victory have narrowed since 1986 in most cases, giving some challengers hope for the future. Republican and Democratic challengers alike said they are encouraged by their parties' gains, and at least one, Republican Jim Salomon, who lost for the second time to Democrat Anthony C. Beilenson, immediately announced that he will run again in 1992.
